The pursuit of ignorance
What does real scientific work look like? As neuroscientist Stuart Firestein jokes: It looks a lot less like the scientific method and a lot more like "farting around ... in the dark."

TED talk inspiration: Explore how a lack of knowledge is a tool of discovery, and indeed, a crucial and necessary one. By acknowledging that we "really don't know all there is to be known", we hope to re-frame the idea of ‘not knowing’ not as failure or inadequacy, but as a path to exposure to new perspectives. We wish to embrace curiosity and to encourage openness to ideas that are "beyond Z," beyond our own preconceived notions of what our "alphabet" is limited to.
How simple ideas lead to scientific discoveries
