I simply had wisdom to share, so I shared it. It may be said that the wisest man must be found, that he does not come to you, but did I ever say I was
the wisest man? And, is there a thing wrong with me sharing wisdom with my fellow human beings? Wisdom is wisdom, and the mode of delivery has not a
thing to do with it's validity.
You say I will 'figure it out as I go through life'... That is a foolish statement. What amalgamation of events, what amount of outside experience,
can bring one more wisdom than is already, and infinitely, theirs?

Knowledge is extremely important in the struggle to understand what is inherently real. A call to reject the effort to gain knowledge in favor
of a pursuit of raw ignorance defined as wisdom sees pretty obvious in its fundamental intent. This isn't the Dark Ages. Not yet anyway.
Why struggle to understand what is 'inherently real'? Your own philosophy says that nothing in this reality is inherently real. So why, then, have you
placed so much importance on the illusion? How is an understanding of the unreal beneficial to you in any way? All things are nothing. The only real
reality is emptiness, nothingness. You are studying nothingness. You won't find much of value.
