A nice benefit of being free to be wrong is it liberates you to try out more ideas. If you aren't committing yourself to a position for the rest of your life, then you can try the position out. Life is so much more fun when you can try out lots of different ideas.

This is a great. I’ve really enjoyed reading through these.

The paragraph on the professor in grad school reminds me a bit of an old Walt Whitman quote, from his “Song of Myself,” that goes:

“Do I contradict myself?
Very well then, I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)”


While I don’t think Walt was referring to fluctuations based on revised data analyses (at least not explicitly), the humility of his sentiment still seemed relevant..
