Pursuit of Knowledge

There is a tree in the garden that is forbidden. It is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Knowledge is power.

But I am discussing the pursuit of knowledge. We ate that fruit a long time ago and know what is good and what is evil. As a filmmaker, I feel it is my duty to expand my horizons so that I have the broadest palette to work with. More than duty, necessity. But I have a limit. Horror.

Fright is normal in films. Comedies, cartoons, R rated dramas all have scary moments. The nature of the buildup, and the nature of the reveal changes, but its always there. But sometimes there are things that are not worth learning about. Either because they will add no value, or the price is too heavy. I have discovered my limit today. I am so glad I discovered I had a limit before I finished the inner argument I’ve had before. Wow. NSN. For those who don’t know,  I am glad for you. For those who do, you have my compassion. I refuse to step over that. And now I realize, that I need to throw out the trash and get some better material. I have a lot to learn, but I don’t have to learn everything.
