On Being Wrong

This is a rather interesting video on a rather unusual subject. For the realization and then the admission that one is wrong there has to be at least a few moments of doubt. Doubt (vicikiccha) is usually thought of only as a hindrance (nivarana) by we Buddhists. But it is worth reminding oneself of these words of the Buddha in the Kalama Sutta. ‘Uncertainty is good, it is good to doubt. Uncertainty (should) arise in doubtful matters’ (A.I,189). Anyway, enjoy the video.
