Foolishness is daring to predict the future and daring still to take the calculated steps necessary to realize that dream. But, of course, there are too many unknown variables to get it right from the first prediction. The Wise are able to see the unseen and bring continuity, serenity, and simplicity to the whole process, but all Wise action needs a Fool to get the ball rolling. And as long as you're interacting with other people each day, there is the chance to be both Foolish and Wise in the best sense of both words.
