Great Movie About Idealism
The danger with beliefs is not you're going to hold wrong beliefs, it's that you hold beliefs at all. Therefore, when you fill your mind with a lot of ideas about what's true or what's false that than obviates the searching for deep direct experiences. You're not willing to let go because you're stuck in a paradigm lock. People like to think that they can represent reality with ideas without recognising their ideas are apart of reality. There are limits on what you can represent with ideas. Representation is not the real thing and as simple as it sounds a lot of highly intelligent people forget this. That's where a lot of stuff goes wrong because if reality was simple and not complex, and reality was intuitive and not counterintuitive than this strategy might work. Except, what humanity has discovered time and time and time and time and time again is that reality does not work in the way we assume. Reality is filled with very weird paradoxes and facts that are completely contrary to anything we assume and that many of our speculations that this is contrary to direct experience. Your speculation about reality are always suspect and could always be overruled by direct experience. The movie isn't perfect but it tries to open your mind to new possibilities.
