I know I'm wrong

May 1, 2022
I just don't know what I'm wrong about. Obviously.

I’ve been forming opinions for more than 42 years now.

I’ve been changing my mind about my opinions for almost as long.

If the pattern holds, I can be very certain that I’m wrong about something—probably many things—I believe today.

But what am I wrong about?

I don’t know. Obviously. If I knew which things I was wrong about, I wouldn’t believe them any more, and then I wouldn’t be wrong!
