There is obviously a plethora of information available in the various forums and posts on this site. From physics to the metaphysical, from JFK to
Jay-Z, from Members to Mods, there are thousands of discussions and personalities active here at any given moment. The possibilities are endless when
it comes to learning from ATS. The one overarching thing I have learned here is not to trust myself. Let me explain.
We all have an idea of who we, as a person, are. We believe that we know ourselves, we believe that we know certain things, and we believe that, at
the end of the day, this is ourselves. Our reality. But through my interactions here, I have learned that I've ultimately learned nothing. Now, my
view of who I am is suspect. What I think I know is the first place I look to find things wrong before I make a post.
Not that I'm saying this is a negative thing. I'm just more conscious of my own personal shortcomings. And my own biases when it comes to what I
think I know. It has taught me, above all else, a measure of humility.
What have you learned here?
