To gain greater awareness one must acknowledge the possibility that their current awareness is incomplete.  People who believe they have complete awareness are consigned to live inside a pathetic tautology. These people are interesting to watch. Sadly, all you can do is watch; there is no way to help.

How strange to realize that self-doubt can actually be beneficial. Maybe that's why this sign has been cropping up around New Orleans. Reading it is easy, but understanding it is another thing altogether.

P.S. If you're a practicing lawyer, check out this Law Practice Assessment . After answering a few questions, you'll get detailed recommendations for improving five key areas of your practice.

    I posted this quote some time ago, by the much despised/respected and always contentious Robert Anton Wilson

    My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence. The more certitude one assumes, the less there is left to think about, and a person sure of everything would never have any need to think about anything and might be considered clinically dead under current medical standards, where absence of brain activity is taken to mean that life has ended. – RAW

    I also like “don’t believe everything you think.”
