This is so right.

I saw this picture today on my Facebook newsfeed and loved it immediately. It is soo right on every level and I just thought I would share...It's now one of my favorite quotes.

So true. The more you truly understand something, the easier the concepts are to explain.

And then there are the people who believe they know everything there is to know. For example, my DH runs a granite countertop business. You wouldn't believe the number of clients he has had that try to tell him how to do his job and truly have no clue what they are talking about. And the same people usually have a spouse that apologizes for them.

We just need an open mind, ready to learn more, and capable of letting go of old beliefs when they are proved wrong. We learn more about ourselves and the world around us by listening, studying, and through trial. A rider learns through practice and guidance from an experienced mentor. We cannot simply explain how to do anything, or why something happens unless we have a deep understanding of it.

I wonder if anyone really understands why red and blue make purple? Anyone can see that they make purple, but why? No one could explain the process unless they truly understood it.

DR, have you ever read his physics papers? If not I'd suggest to do so. I don't think this statement is applicable to this guy, so it's rather ironic that he's the one saying so...

And no, you can not explain simply many stuff in science (especially in math, but I'd say physics and chemistry as well) unless you have enough education in particular field. So I don't quite agree with this statement.

I haven't read one but I'll definitely look into it...I'm not exactly saying that everything can be esplained simply..but that a person shouldn't proclaim that they know it all if they can't tell you about it simply...if that makes sense?

Never thought about stuff in that way but it is very true.

It's quite possible that his explanations in his physics papers actually ARE a simple version of the information, but the concepts are SO complicated to begin with that even the simplified version is not comprehensible to the average person.
