Passivity is proper to domesticated animals.
It can be imperfectly imposed on humans by threatening violence.
It may be achieved by an all-encompassing system which defines existence.

" Consider your origins," Dante wrote.
"you were not made to live as brutes but to follow virtue and knowledge"

Knowledge is neither information and expertise
nor an instruction manual.
It is an investigation of the human as a whole being in search of doubt; an unlimited desire to understand.

The domesticated animal is unable to welcome doubt, let alone assume it.
Human strengths - Language, imagery, memory, character - are therefore converted into burdens. These tools, which promise virtue and knowledge, become a fearful prison.

"Some manners of the ignorant are: the answer before he hears, the opposition before he understands, and the judgment with what he does not know."
Ja'far Al-Sadiq

"The world is soft and beautiful like a snake but there is a fatal poison hidden inside."
Mūsá al-Kāżim

"The reason why the world lacks unity, and lies broken and in heaps, is, because man is disunited with himself"

"Repel the thought, for if you don’t, it becomes an idea. So repel the idea, for if you don’t it will become a desire. So fight against that desire, for if you don’t, it will become a determination and a passion. And if you don’t repel that, it will become an action. And if you don’t replace it with its opposite, it will become a constant habit. So at that point, it will be difficult for you to change it."
