“I don’t know.” A simple response with a chance for a profound personal meaning.
Often “I don’t know” is followed by an examination of that which is unknown in an attempt to understand and therefore, know.
The feeling of “I don’t know” excites an open and reasoning mind. Learning each fact, then racing to the next is an exhilarating experience for the free thinker. Shackling the mind with religion introduces “I know” into subjects that obviously aren’t known, but learning is ceased nonetheless.
If humanity is to progress past our superficial differences then it is imperative that we embrace and love the fact “I don’t know.”
