Thought for Tomorrow

“Be very, very careful what you put into that head, because you will never, ever get it out.”

- Thomas Wolsey, 1471 – 1530.

Comment: And by extension be very very careful what others, ‘systems’, or ‘institutions’ may put in to that head – unknown to you!! For idiots who read this, the man is not talking about obvious exceptions such as dementia. He’s talking about how people latch on to ideas, beliefs and knowledge etc.. and refuse to give them up even in the face of incontrovertible evidence. And by extension scientists and the religious elite are guilty of the same ‘crime’  of stuffing things in people’s heads. And people are guilty of a crime against their own selves for being so stupidly unaware.
