    If the impossible were to suddenly become possible would you be able to recognize it?
    ..meaning.. does your fundamental disposition allow you to learn of new things? ..
    not new instances of old things.. but new new things.. things outside your current sense of what's possible/probable??


    .. this is not a test question.. no one will be criticized for their answers.. It's just something to think about..

    Peace.

    There isn't really anything new under the sun. You can primarily discover for yourself phenomena that already exists---in other words, for an individual this discovery would be 'new' and bring more power to the personal realm of that individual, but, essentially, the seed has already been planted---we simply have to harvest its full potential. In this sense, to answer the question, yes....absolutely anything is possible--even when not immediately evident.

    Hmm...not sure even though YES my "fundamental disposition" does allow for me to learn new things because I am a student as well as a teacher. I am learning new things all the time only to find what I may think is new, is in effect "old news"...except when it comes to new technologies.

    The more I learn the more I realize I need to learn and that I will never master all there is to KNOW.

    Yes...I'm willing and able to learn...One can never learn everything in a lifetime...I think I will always be that way because I love to learn and whatever I learn I want to be able to share and teach to whomever is also willing and able.
