Certainly Uncertain

One of the very few things that I know with certainty is that I know very few things with certainty.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice that the smartest people comfortably admit this:

“… when one acquires a bit of new information, there are many new questions that are generated by it, and each new piece of information breeds five or ten new questions. These questions pile up at a much faster rate than does the accumulated information. The more one knows, therefore, the greater his level of ignorance.”

Stalking The Wild Pendulum, Itzhak Bentov, page 1.

Any time you run into someone or something that professes to have all of the answers, run the other way, as quickly as you can.

When it comes to health & wellness products or services, the way to tell the difference is to see, or ask, whether or not they are confined to a strict set of rules, or open to finding out whatever works best for you.

A few key principles or core values, sure, I’m all for that.

But a list of foods that you can never eat, for the rest of your life?

I’m not so certain about that.
