We are surrounded by the horizon in wide plains and on the sea around the earth. Perhaps thought the people in the past there is the end of the world. With our present knowledge we have intellectually a horizon in to the great universe, into the greater reality. With us people there is also something like the horizon of our experiences, of our thinking. Our history of ideas happened till in this time of the possible knowledge of the greater reality still more or less in the limited horizon of the restricted world of our experience, of our thinking. This is obvious at the intense ideological fights in the modern time.
With seeming progressive ideas arose power struggles as in the case of earlier wars of conquest: The own made-up and experienced world should be the world for everyone or even for everything. In earlier power struggles the dialog was missing for the mastering of problems. In the ideological fight is instead of spoken with each other one talks at cross-purposes or is spoken against each other instead of with each other. Is this due to the good will? Do we meet each other rather hostilely instead of kind just with ideas? Or what happens into us during ideological confrontations or also at a different thinking?
Our egocentric natural state has an effect also in our thinking. If this isn't conscious to us, this impairs our dialog ability. We then aren't capably or perhaps not ready to accept additions or necessary corrections to an otherwise useable knowledge. Our knowledge is and remains limited always. Our horizon also is and remains always restricted. From this arises that we can constantly learn. By dialog our horizon can be enlarged, be more greatly. The lack of dialog ability leads to the common know-all attitude which then can there be with trifles, which hardly are mentioning. Unfortunately, there are prominent know-all attitudes to in to the arts subjects and to the denominational world.
We also should learn this, how and where with arts subjects and denominational confrontations arise which burden the humane intellect and behaviours. The greater horizon of the great reality could be the line of sight for helpful dialogs. Predominantly monological instruction lacks the necessary addition by the dialog and can cause an egocentric confrontation. To experience with each other the still greater horizon, the still greater reality in the dialog probably leads to the enrichment with teaching joy and learning joy.
