Nature of the Thoughts::

A rather interesting thought there!
I'm not sure if I could really describe myself as either ignorant or non-ignorant, but I can certainly say that a hell is created when trying to be non-ignorant. In my case it's trying to get people to see things from an alternative perspective as opposed to the popular one, and also insisting that people treat others with respect. All that comes of my efforts is a barrage of abuse and being labelled as a 'freak'... that and plenty of silent treatment. My head really does hurt.
Many times I've wondered how people can live with being so ignorant, and I've often wondered what living as ignorant would be like. I just can't do it, though, I have an overwhelming compulsion not to go down that road.
I don't know if any of this is relevant or even makes sense, but I just thought I'd add it.

I understand that. Except a lot of my friends (and folks close to me) marvel at my ability to see all the sides of something. I most often take the opposite stance as someone I'm having a conversation with just to be contrary. I can't says that I've ever been ignorant but I can't says that I've ever been non-ignorant in all things. *shrug*
Walking the middle of the road is always tough. But to me its always paid off.
