If your search for Truth leads you to the discovery of an idea which could conceivably change the course of humanity such as say, the multiplication tables or the discovery of pi, will you congratulate yourself for having learned WHAT to think…or HOW?
If you are experimenting with leftovers and the resulting olio is surprisingly delicious, will you record the recipe or will you be encouraged to do some more experimenting?
And, if you have a question about one any or other of life’s mysteries, would you be inclined to experiment…or will you look for someone who claims to have “the answer”?
And if you found someone who says “yes, I have the answer” would you then, interrogate this person to determine if experimentation and verifiable clues had led them to this bit of knowledge or would you be lacking the awareness of the need to do so because your life is filled with “WHAT”s rather than “HOWS”?
In the process of transforming that part of our lives which we call home from the menacing, ever-present dangers of pestilence, violence and threats to our health into a safe nesting place, information is our most precious possession, however illusive, however dependable. Each of us is responsible for our own safety and to that of our loved ones. This responsibility must not be taken lightly.
