I agree to this as well : We are actually "part of the system", this we are unable to truly view it from the outside.

When of my best experiences of school is that heated Philosophy discussion we had, upon the question whether people are REALLY able to invent something truly "new" - or whether humans are merely able to "invent" something based on something that has always been there before.

In the end, this discussion is uninteresting for me. My interests like elsewhere - plus, they are not helpful when i ask myself : "Why did my cooking go wrong this time ?"

Philosophy is imho great - but there are still more pressing problems to master.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
