It is easy to be intimidated by our ignorance. There are many people who know more than we do about a subject of interest. The negative reaction is natural. But if we shift our perspective a bit we see that ignorance is an opportunity. We cannot blame ourselves for what we have never been exposed to. But once we understand there is more to learn the ball is now in our court. It is up to us to make the decision to pursue the knowledge we want. The road is long and slow. If the intimidation of ignorance lasts only a moment, that is the trajectory that should be followed.
