“Is it better to know or is it better to not know?”
This the latest FPQ, posed by Fandango, of This ,That and the Other.
My answer to this is, yes. Most empathetically yes!
Knowledge is the key to understanding. Not only the world around us but ourselves too. Knowing the answers or at least trying to know is our instinct. The result is all the development in the world today.
Knowing the facts in life makes the decision process easy. It also provides the insight into the workings of all that surrounds us. That is how the technology came into being.
Knowing our own strengths and weaknesses can lead us to manage our lives in a better way. Similarly the knowledge of these qualities in others is also a big factor in how we deal with them.
Knowing about our moral creed saves us from confusion and gives us an anchor in life. It serves a basis upon which we build our faith. And is essential for our spiritual well-being.
Knowing about what illnesses we have had, have and could have is also very important for our physical survival. Know what foods are good for us and which ones are harmful. What are health promoting habits and which can be detrimental for our health are all fact that come from knowledge.
In conclusion I would say that if we want to live a life of ease and enlightenment, we should strive to KNOW!
