Dear Perry

Thank you for this important link.

Tha matter of mindsets, how we think and why we think the way that we 
do is utterly fundamental to developing clarity of heart and mind.
Otherwise we remain victim to our skandhas, social and psychological 
conditioning, parental attitudes, peer pressure and last but by no 
means least, our desire for things to be the way we might want or wish 
them to be.
We endlessly hoodwink ourselves into presuming we know things, 
sometimes with such certainty.

Shakespeare wrote, 
", proud man,
Dressed in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he is most assured.
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven, 
As make the angels weep.

It has also been written, "He who thinks he knows, know not. He who 
really thinks he knows not, knows".

I relish knowing not, only in my case it happens to be a fact :)

Kind regards
