“You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and watercraft; a certain free-margin, and even vagueness - ignorance, credulity - helps your enjoyment of these things.” - Henry David Thoreau

The quote is true, definitely. Simplicity goes a long way, me thinks but it depends on the circumstances too.

Happy Sunday Eric!

I remember our room in the college dorm encountering an emailed flash program that purportedly "reads minds." Being math and science majors, we were figuring out how the thing worked, but our polsci roommate would want none of our explanation.

I guess there's enjoyment, too, in discovering new things; just that there's a point where you would ultimately have to just bask in the beatiful mystery of it all.
