Double Blind

A recent story on NPR aimed to prove that people can’t tell the difference between a Stradivari and a Guarneri.

The story reinforced for me the something I’ve began to think about the majority of people out there: we’re largely faking it.

People can’t tell the difference between good wine and bad wine, good music and bad music, good literature and bad literature, and good ideas and bad ideas.

What does this say about humans? Our enormous brain is adept at tricking us into thinking something that just might not be true.

And that is the truth.
