With any new or novel scenario, it is nearly impossible to know for certain what to believe. Speculation abounds with the estimations of risk being assumed or seemingly imposed. Opinions are formed and shared before validation of experiment is final. As an individual, we should look for and act upon what of the original speculation and opinion we will come to believe and act upon. We shouldn’t want to be wrong from not learning.
When right and wrong couldn’t possibly be absolutely determined yet, you may still need to act with what you have before you. You may as well be as informed as you can be with a mindset to continue learning and applying what you are learning.
When there is no absolute and proven solution yet and we know there may not be one for some time, there appears to be chaos. From chaos comes growth if we will genuinely learn from it.
With any risks we face, it is best to adapt and modify to your best advantages through time until there is nothing left to be learned. Something appearing or professed to be true one day may not be true the next. Act accordingly to adjust with what is being learned to evolve as you continue learning. Learning will often take considerable time, remain informed.
“It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong. — Rihard Feynman —
