The ‘IGNORANCE IS BLISS' Philosophical Dilemma


“You’re hanging off the highest tower in Jakarta, it’s a thousand-foot drop to your death, so you call your three best friends for help.

They rush out to save you, but they’re afraid if they lean over to help you, they might be yanked over themselves.

So they step back.

You fall.

And live.

But do you wish you’d never tested your friends in the first place?

Since now you know you can’t count on them when it’s a matter of life or death?

Would it be better if you’d stayed ignorant of what they’re truly good for, and gone on being friends forever?”

- Quote/question from movie “After the Dark”
