We either open up possibilities for inquiry or close them.
The open-minded tend to include those around them. The shallow-minded prefer to isolate others as a means to an end. Such subjectivity halts the evolution of ideas.
“Our view of the world is truly shaped by what we decide to hear.”William James
Attitude predetermines whether we discover facts and establish truth.
We put our minds in the world, shaped by the rhythm of nuance and complexity and weave it into a geometry of thought.
We never know for sure when the old world passes away and a new one begins.
All that’s certain are the infinitude of blind spots.
