Each of us can only plan for what we already know, the constraints of our limited knowledge restrict what we can imagine - we often cannot see beyond our assumptions <lucas/philos.htm>. To overcome these limitations we must rely on being taught new ideas by someone whom we trust, or by stumbling onto new discoveries by accident - in both ways we expand our mental horizons and thus see new possibilities that were previously unthinkable.
