I concur with his thesis. My belief is that the more we learn, the more we discover we don’t know. And the more we learn, the more we understand the inter-connectivity of all living things in our world. In 100 years, society may look back upon the early 21st Century and chuckle at how primitive our knowledge and beliefs about the universe were.
