“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.” Leo Tolstoy

(This quotation was brought to my attention by Futurist Simon Anderson and reminds me to two of my favorite unlearning strategies: Question the Wisdom of Experts and Replace “No Doubt” with the Phrase “to Know Doubt”.
