Ignorant and arrogant

We are ignorant and arrogant, both individually and collectively. Look at YouTube comments for extreme examples. We exist in a sea of:

  1. prior belief, shaping what we can hear, see and understand
  2. shared misunderstanding
  3. intellectual limitations
  4. inability to handle real complexity
  5. illogic
  6. unreliable memories
  7. faulty interpretation
  8. opinion that is to a large extent wrong
  9. misinformation
  10. disinformation (e.g. propaganda, marketing, and other lies)

It is amazing that we have come this far.
