“Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer
I believe that many men do mistake the limits of their vision as being the absolute limits (which is as good an explanation as any I’ve heard for how some of the fundamentalist views I occasionally hear espoused can still be held by more people than I care to think of) but every man? If this was true than the only way that we could expand our limits would be by random chance and never of our own volition. How can you expand a limit that you don’t know exists? It is only because we know that Reality is so much bigger than we can imagine that makes it possible to continue expanding our fields.
