Ignorance is Bliss

Simple Mind
"My grandmother used to say life was so much easier when you were simple minded. It's taken me almost my whole life to understand what she meant." Brian Andreas

This quote reaches back to the "Ignorance is bliss" philosophy. And I'm beginning to think there is truth in this maxim. It goes with the "What you don't know won't hurt you." What I don't know I can't care about. What I don't understand I won't pay attention to. Suppose this all relates to my underachieving tendency but I've been thinking that dumbing down might not be a bad idea.
