Wisdom? - Ed's journal
Is it possible to become wiser, without having been hurt along the way?
Does living in utopia, mean that no one is capable of really appreciating consequences of actions?

Two different questions, I think.

Sometimes it's possible to learn from others - although those lessons aren't always the ones that make people pay attention.

As for utopia... there's a point of view that agrees with that suggestion. Or there's a point of view that without that appreciation, it wouldn't really be utopia. That then links back to some of the religious views about free will and imperfect worlds...

Will the answer to either question bring any satisfaction or benefit?
