There might be several reasons for us to "mask" our inquiring minds. I
said for us to mask, because might bias is that we are able to turn that
mind back on at certain age, but choose not to doo it! A partial list of
potential causes could be:

- Our parents who constantly ask us to stop asking "why"!
- Our teachers in school, from K through College, who demand compliance and
conformance, and present themselves as the only source of knowledge, etc.
- Our managers who insist that we are paid to work and not to think.
- Our churches that prensent us with ideas that cannot be questioned.

Any others?
