Re: I: Ignorance, Intelligence, and Integrity

Hi Lynn. Isn't ignorance a state - of not-knowing. So what we are putting in - into that state of not-knowing - is knowledge.

Perhaps we need a transitional phase. Putting in knowledge forces out fear and ignorance. As you suggest we have to have the intelligence and the courage to transform the knowledge into wisdom, empathy and compassion. So the shorthand version might be: knowledge in - wisdom out.

Thanks for the interesting ideas.

Niall

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
