Philosopher and software developer Clif High says:
In all experimentation, as with life, which is THE Grand Experiment after all, two rules apply: first, that all things are difficult in the beginning, thus most of your mistakes are made early in any process; and second, Stupidity Can Hurt.
So watch out in the early stages of any new activity, when we mostly operate at the stupid level.
I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.
Thanks, Asklotta, for giving me a “nice” remark to replace my old, impolite saying: “There’s no help for stupid.” Your words are much kinder. Since kindness, even in the face of self-selected ignorance, is my goal, I appreciate the help. Hugs.
