    If you're that desperate... do a search for all of marmalade's posts. She hasn't made that many posts...

    Wrassle up an INTx to hunt that article down for you. I didn't turn up anything in my semi-legitimate effort.

    Don't ask an INTP to do it, we are too lazy.

    On topic: Ignorance IS bliss. I dont know any fact that is more true or less realised than that. It is the reason we have the "tortured genius" stereotype. The smarter you get, the worse off you are.

    I don't consider it to be suffering. I let it energize me so that I can pursue my goals, gain better understanding of things, and make an impact on things around me. I don't see it as a reason to whine, I see it as a responsibility. Maybe I can do something that nobody else can do for the world.

    Yeh, we have that strange problem that suffering usually also equals learning/progress. So good is good, and bad is good. No wonder we keep thinking everyone is good.

    Yes! Lol, I don't have much concept of right/wrong and good/bad because of this, and though I have good judgment nonetheless, other people sometimes think the way I regard some sitauations/types of people as quite odd, and find my thinking pattern towards judgment on these sorts of things very different from their own lol.

    It is best for man to be middle-wise,
    Not over cunning and clever:
    The learned man whose lore is deep
    Is seldom happy at heart.

    Ignorance is bliss

    But it also leads to self destruction if not herded the right way.

    That is why we need a trustworthy leader to help guide the sheep. That's also the analogy Jesus used with the followers of christianity.

    Without a good moral foundation, the ignorant are likely to degenerate into narcissism and hedonism.

    Only the highly learned need some direction, or they will just hoard knowledge like a dragon hoards gold. If the highly learned had a focus, anything could get done.

    If the less learned had the morals or strong belief that is a base, they would keep society stable. This would allow the highly learned to enlighten the world.

    Hidden agendas only corrupt a system, if everything was open and shared we would have a utopia.

    That used to be my moto almost. Though now I am more of the global understanding belief. You can already see from on the board that openness doesn't really clear misinterpretation. Though if done for long enough it might. And for some reason I don't like utopia. My goal is to move toward perfection but on another level I have the realisation that beauty lies in imperfections and I hate destroying that.

    Well, I'm marmalade. I don't even remember what article that was. Sounds interesting. I'll see if it somehow magically pops back into my memory.
