What is apithology’s biggest challenge long-term?

This too is a challenging question.

The answer is counter-intuitive and the biggest challenge is (possibly) … having ‘good intentions’.

Apithology is a discipline of inquiry that looks with humility at vast complexity. It recognises that the practice of humanity-caring requires a dedication similar in scale to the scope of its questions.

In having ‘good intentions’ to make shorter-term benefits easily available, there is often a desire to simplify, promote, and make initially difficult concepts easier to grasp.

It is not clear that by making humanity benefiting ideas simplistic that anyone truly benefits. What may happen is the tension of a good question is reduced into our present thinking. The collapse of this generative tension is actually something that negates our very best asking.

In apithology the greatest benefits are gained by staying with our most important questions in a longer-term asking. The habit of hoping for quick answers to ill-framed questions as a form of instant gaining, is probably the greatest challenge facing any humanity-scale inquiry. As individuals we are often not practiced at asking well and waiting for our best (or better) answers.

It is a mistaken good intention that because others (like ourselves) may not be able to hold a worthwhile question, that we feel the need to make new ideas simpler, so there is no unfamiliarity in our asking.

Hoping to make apithology simple, possibly will make it permanently unavailable.
