Ladders and walls

art by Jenny Holzer

`One often thinks one is climbing towards a solution only to eventually discover that the ladder has been leaning against the wrong wall. Sometimes this happens because one didn't look where one was going, or receiving the wrong information, or because one addressed the situation with an invalid preconception.

~Conclusion: If you don't realize you've picked the wrong wall. Then when you've reached the top you're convinced it's the right answer.

How would you ever know it was the wrong wall?Wouldn't once you realize its the wrong wall, you go to the right one...you dont just convince yourself the wrong wall is right?

who wants to be stuck on the wrong wall...with no solution?
