Please don't misunderstand, I am a big fan of your site and I usually agree with most of your posts, but this one in particular strikes me as a bit off. Perhaps you can clarify your stance a bit for me?
If we have access to all knowledge in ethereal form, why would we consciously throw ourselves into ignorance when incarnating in order to 'raise awareness' of a particular issue? It seems to me that having knowledge to begin with would be good enough, wouldn't it? Why do we need to simulate ignorance in order to gain knowledge in a simulation if we already had that knowledge to begin with?
My thoughts on this issue are complex and it would take me some time to explicate on my particular viewpoint (time which really should be spent on a math assignment that's due tomorrow morning
), but if you could clarify a bit, I would be grateful.
