A Manual for Humans

10/4/2019: I was asked to deliver a keynote address at a medical meeting this coming June, 2020. It is a meeting on shoulder surgery of which I was one of the pioneers in arthroscopic surgery. I chose the topic of “There is a distinct advantage to not knowing anything”. The implication is that we should be without bias or prejudice as we approach problem solving with curiosity. It got me thinking about expanding upon such. It then occurred to me that each of us born with the distinct advantage of not knowing anything. Then via environment and or conditioning start to learn. It is at that point we need a manual for human life. Fortunately, there is one, the Holy Bible. Unfortunately, I and so many ignore this manual and venture into learning from the world, the flesh and even the devil. God forbid.
