I can’t remember ever being persuaded by some argument, that caused me to change my mind about anything that I really believed to be true. Some people have started me thinking about something I believed to be true.
I suppose at first I believed things by default, meaning I collected information without paying much, or any, attention to it.
The beliefs remained until I stumbled across some physical evidence that showed me that what I believed was wrong. I reckon that Mind, the conscious me, thinks according to my collection of data.
Can we be persuaded without the presentation, the introduction, of different data. Can we be talked into changing our Mind?
