The Pile

We think we know.

There is a common purpose

To most of our technology.

We assume

Then

That we know it.

As in understand

How it works.

Few of us

Can explain

How anything

Actually works.

 

We are all ignorant

Of most everything

Relying rather

On the community brain;

Its the diverse specialists

 

Our hubris

Requires certainty

Of things we know not.

 

 

 

Sometimes groups

Don’t help

As they rely on the same

Assumptions that they

Truly know

Groupthink

Amassed is a

Pile of anecdotal knowledge

Claimed to be fact-based

While a myth.

 

We are all ignorant

Believe that first.
