Fully subtracted

I will hazard that Socrates was better understood by his contemporaries than he is by us. Consider this depth charge: “True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.”

Wisdom from an empty mind

“I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

The “I don’t know” state disables ego and frees consciousness to perform its wonders.

Wisdom has no thought process.
