    Interesting!

    Does education provide understanding, such that popular beliefs permit?

    Curious...

    I don't think it does. In order for it to stick, you have to have the hunger for it. Or you have to already be aware of it on an intuitive level, and the education would clear things up on a cognitive level.

    Quite a vague question. Hope my answer was to the question you were truly asking.~

    Sorry for walking all over your optimism. I guess I had a pessimistic or realistic moment because of the video.

    Very good answer. My knee jerk reaction to the question was "Yes, it does", but you're right. It only works to clear up things and make you ask new questions if you already have the hunger.
