There was a legendary guy who during the 90s and early 2000s appeared in "meme" and music videos. He was basically a butcher with no formal higher education, but he used to philosophize on random things. Being a crazy,(eventually) homeless man, one would think that he doesn't have anything smart to say. But in his video about hunting a mythological snake of apocalypse he said, I quote: "Let me live in my ignorance, let me live free."
Sure, it's nothing new. But the quote stuck with me to this day because it was uttered by a man who organically came to that conclusion. No internet, no books and by that point even a lack of sanity. Even though he was losing a grip on reality he still had that stance.
I understand OP's point. >>271743
explains the reason why people who overthink suffer. Knowledge is fine and dandy, because >>270817
.The problem is overthinking, anything that is tied to the meaning, spirituality in life and anything concerning human psychology. Me (male) and my 2 sisters are all virgins (combined 90 years of life). But we all have higher education. We always think. Everything need to be thought through, instead of just DOING things.>AAAGHH I'm THIIIINKING
We've had cousins and friends who are mental midgets (no joke) pass us by. Having kids, moving out to better countries etc. They go through life on autopilot, not knowing anything, not caring about anything.
I also wish I didn't "know" some things concerning life experiences. Not everything should be tried out. Sitting all day by the PC beats spending time with a succubus, then never again. Just enjoying chocolate instead of trying LSD. The list goes on. Sometimes just NOT knowing is alright! Curiosity killed the cat.
