“Once we accept that knowledge is tentative, and that we are probably going to improve our knowledge in important ways when we learn more about the world, we are less likely to reject new information that conflicts with our present ideas. The attitude of expectancy will allow us to apply insights gained at one level of generality to other levels. No particular kind of knowledge will have such authority that it will automatically exclude certain possibilities in another field of knowledge.” -Ray Peat

Oh, this is a good one. To hold our views at a distance and be able to consider changes. Something to aim for.

Yes but sadly the majority of people are closed to new information which conflicts with what they have been indocrinated with. The MSM has a large part to play in this alongside other forms of propaganda such as taught at most Universities (especially Medical schools).
