Three blind men find themselves in the presence of the Great Elephant. Each, trembling with fear & awe, stumble forward & reach out their hands to discover its nature for themselves. One takes hold of the tail, one a leg, one a tusk. And each is overcome with joy at having directly discovered the nature of the Great Elephant.
The blind man holding the tail announces, ‘The Great Elephant is a broom that cleanses & sweeps all before it.”
The blind man holding the leg is surprised, & protests, “No, the Great Elephant is a magnificent pillar towering above us, guarding us & keeping us safe.”
The blind man holding the tusk is astonished & shouts “No, you’re both wrong. The Great Elephant is a plough that furrows the earth that we may grow crops & have plenty.”
And they fell to fighting & there was no peace in the land.
‘Arrogance diminishes wisdom.’
