Childishness is not a value, it is a disvalue. Child-likeness is a great value. To be child-like means that the circle is complete: the man has lived life, lived and loved, experienced all that was available and has come to conclude that th...ere is nothing more valuable than innocence. He has known -- known that knowledge is futile, so he has dropped knowledge. He has known all the cunning ways of the world -- he has been cunning, he has been deceptive, he has been deceived, others have been cunning towards him -- he has known all that, but he has grown-up and he has come to conclude that that is just useless, meaningless. Deceiving, deceived -- all is a game; it does not lead you anywhere, it is a dream. He has dropped all those games.
