  1. Knowledge is only potential. It’s only power if applied. That subtle fact causes so much confusion and wasted potential.

    Comically, language confers tremendous semantic potential, but has adaptive power only if very selectively applied. Rigor helps, but not when paired with mortis. 🙂

    • You’re absolutely right – and what we are doing right now confirms it. Professors knowing a lot of things in their ivory towers don’t improve societies. Sharing knowledge on the web writing, blogging, etc, may! Rigor mortis – I liked that one 🙂
