Ignorance - In a Good Way

Ah, another book to read, this time one on Ignorance, How It Drives Science, a work who's title reminds me of Beginner's Mind, the Zen approach of maintaining openness when dealing with the attainment of knowledge, something society needs to do if it is to survive the next 50 - 100 years, a time frame, yours truly thinks, is the most perilous humanity will ever face.

The quantum rules, to ignore it is the expression of true ignorance, the province of intolerance, religion
nationalism and fear, characteristics all too common in today's fractured world.
