Question: What is your question?
Adam Bly: I’d say how can we live in a world filled with unknowns, be comfortable with unknowns, but at the same time not be paralyzed by them and be able to take action, be able to make decisions, be able to effect change, but be able to overturn them based on new evidence? How do we achieve a comfort level with that in the 21st century?
