february 17

Given your thoughts on the interviews over the weekend, and your personal perspective, please comment on the following quote:

Those who merely know about things, or only think they know, live in a state of self-conditioned and culturally conditioned somnambulism.  Those who understand given reality as it presents itself, moment by moment, are wide awake.
-Aldous Huxley, Knowledge & Understanding (1952)
