Ben: “I'm going to major in computer science”
Friend: ”That’s the stupidest thing ever, you can learn to build computers from a trade school like Devry!”
That’s when Ben realized to think for himself. He wanted to build a limitless machine, his friend was talking about building a washing machine.
Thinking for yourself in reality is extremely difficult, because as a human, you want to be liked. The easiest way to be liked is to tell people what they want to hear, what they think is true.
