Curiosity Dethrones Unruly Dogma

Victor Hugo once said, “Nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come.” When an idea is a prevailing concept, it reigns like a King. Ironically, this maxim has a fragile characteristic. The reign of ideas whose time has come can defend against new ideas. 

I listened to an interview recently with a geologist named Robert Schoch, whose work is challenging the prevailing belief about the origins of the Sphinx in Egypt. He beautifully quoted Victor Hugo and added an important thought. He says that the second strongest thing in the world is an idea whose time has yet to come.

This notion is worth keeping in mind as we grow our perspectives. Strongly held beliefs will likely be strong right up until they’re obsolete. Our only chance, then, to not fall victim to an unruly dogma is with the natural checks and balances of curiosity.
