I found that now I wasn't letting being ignorant to possibilities and probabilities exist in my life. I live with an open mind concerning the panoramic and comprehensive complexities that used to dissuade me from knowing all that which is around and about me. I have mentioned this many times before in this blog, it is like the chapter in Plato's Republic, "The Allegory of the Cave" http://study.com/academy/lesson/the-allegory-of-the-cave-by-plato-summary-analysis-explanation.html, Where enlightenment shows us our ignorance despite our inability to recognize it without a perspective.
The purpose of living an objective life is so that we are open to all that which is logical or at least possible. It was not my intent to bring this discussion around to myths, mores and superstitions but it seems that outside of outright fear, these are the common factors that keep us from having a more open approach to our curiosity. The metaphorical Ostrich with it's head buried in the sand to avoid danger is not so dissimilar from what we humans do when we ignore knowledge and intelligence in favor of the mystical or supernatural. We must all start from a base of understanding so that we can communicate and grow with each other based on the factors known in this existence and ignorance does not possess any value in the concept.
