Synopsis 360° – Beyond Knowledge

Reading the newspaper recently, I caught myself humming the lyrics to the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever.” (Hey, I was a child of the late ’60s.)

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone
But it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me

Nothing is real….
Misunderstanding all you see….

I closed the paper.  It’s a challenge these days to walk upright amid the exhortations that the November election was stolen, that young children are being cannibalized by crazed Democrats in the basement of a pizza parlor, that voting procedures are being narrowed in numerous states under the guise of “election integrity,” and the incessant charges from the left and the right that the right and the left are “canceling” books, people, toys, internet speech and…. (Note to self: better not, er, cancel that subscription to Headspace.)

Truth? Fuhgeddaboudit! Today, there are only polarities in the courtroom of “I’m right, and you’re wrong,” political duelists at 20 paces.

It’s enough to imagine yourself as the subject in Edvard Munch’s painting, The Scream. The antidote, explains Mac Bogert, our host for the June 1 installment of Synopsis 360°, is to think differently about thinking. To think less about knowledge and more about understanding; to think less about certainty and more about uncertainty; to think less about “I’m woke!” and more about “I’m discovering!” Click here for a Session Preview.

Join us on June 1st at NOON Eastern for “Beyond Knowledge,” some reasoned conversation designed to help us untangle our pesky cranial hairballs.

Until June 1st, it’s back to the Beatles!

You say yes, I say no
You say stop and I say go, go, go, oh no


You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello, hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello, hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello

  1. Hmmm. I’m less certain about that, Mark, than you might think. I feel that I need to bathe more in the light of uncertainty and see what develops. I need to explore “maybe” more than “is.” Great that you’ll join us on 6/1, thanks.

  2. Jeff, my concern, of course, is that we’re preaching to the converted. “To think less about knowledge and more about understanding; to think less about certainty and more about uncertainty; to think less about “I’m woke!” and more about “I’m discovering!”

    That’s nothing more than correct, sane, and commendable. But the folks whose agendas preclude them from doing any of those things will be completely unfazed by them.

    Nonetheless, I’ll see you on June 1st.
