Blindness

Blindness
When I do a Sudoku puzzle there are always a few obvious numbers, that I get easily. But then it becomes hard. You might say I am blind, unable to see a solution to what is right in front of me. The answer is there, I just can't see it. If I am persistent and continue to work at solving the puzzle my eyes adjust to my thinking and the solution is revealed to me. What I am saying in a round about way is we are blinded by our thoughts. Learning helps us to see what is hidden.

What if a blind person went through life only believing what they could see? Would the person be smart if they waited till falling off a cliff before changing their path? What approach do you take to see the cliff that  cannot be seen?

Which leads to the question what is real and what is a creation of the mind?

What happens when education goes wrong?
