I'm new to reading this blog and am slowly going through the sequences. Eliezer, I'm enjoying your writings a lot and they are really helping to change my way of thinking.
A thought I had while reading this and figured I'd ask for other thoughts:
To worship a phenomenon because it seems so wonderfully mysterious, is to worship your own ignorance.
I know people who are perfectly content to "worship their own ignorance." Why do you think they don't value knowing enough to go further? Is it just because they have hit a semantic roadblock and don't realize it?
