We could be passing each other, going in opposite directions...

We may be going in the same direction, but one of us is upside-down in relation to the other....

I just noticed your "signature"; is that from Castaneda? It reminds me of something we just touched upon in passing in one of the threads in Paganism.

"Summa scientia nihil scire". - The highest wisdom is to know nothing.

I think it's also a Taoist notion. Here's Chapter 65 from Stephen Mitchell's translation of the Tao Teh Ching:

65

The ancient Masters
didn't try to educate the people,
but kindly taught them to not-know.

When they think that they know the answers,
people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don't know,
people can find their own way.

If you want to learn how to govern,
avoid being clever or rich.
The simplest pattern is the clearest.
Content with an ordinary life,
you can show all people the way
back to their own true nature.


Personally, I'm finding that many such ideas are shared by widely disparate peoples...
