When The Wise Are Unwise

The wisest cannot be wise when they identify themselves as wise.

Wisdom is the ability to see from many different perspectives, multi-centric perspectives. Amalgamating the many perspectives allows us to best know the nature of something now and how it may change in the future.

Identifying ourselves as wise is egocentric which limits our ability to have multi-centric perspectives and view things wisely.

Moreover, when we think we are wise we think we have little to learn. Hence, we learn little more and know less and less about that of which we once knew something as everything is forever changing. That leaves us thinking we know more than we do which is very unwise.
