Odd before it’s even

This freedom is much more valuable than we realise, because to reach intelligent answers, you often need to ask really dumb questions.*
(Rory Sutherland)

The myth of the hero told people what they had to do to unlock their own heroic potential.**
(Karen Armstrong)

Dumb can mean we bring some asymmetry into the world, looking for someone or something to match it and bring some evenness.

Maybe I’m doing something dumb, but I’ve got to keep trying.

(*From Rory Sutherland’s Alchemy.)
