“Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them.”
— Salvador Dali
This project proposes to seek answers to specific questions from subjects at intervals; i.e. 4 to 6 years; 13-15 years; 27-30 years; 45-47 years; 58-60 years and then those between 70 to 100 years of age.
The significance of the study will be to verify if indeed the mind grows significantly in wisdom between the intervals.
Wisdom will be identified by looking at past and current philosophers and how they defined a wise person.
There is no budget. Persons who wish to participate please respond to this post. This may be the FIRST research study completed totally online if there are enough participants. Each person will be assigned a random number and only I will know who they are. I would hope that your grandchildren, children, and you, if you fall into one of the categories or if your grandparents or parents are over 70 and would answer the questions would participate.
After this post, the participants will respond to an email address; not on this blog. However, the results will be written up and shared on this blog.
If you are interested in this project, perhaps you would feel better emailing me at:
P.S. The University of Chicago is involved with a wisdom project. I know all of the folk are writing more scholarly papers than what I am proposing, however, I still feel this has some merit.
