En cierta ocasión Demócrito comió en su mesa unos higos que sabían a miel y empezó de inmediato a indagar en su espíritu de dónde provenía tal dulzura inusitada. A fin de esclarecerlo, iba a levantarse de la mesa para mirar la situación del lugar donde se habían cogido los higos, pero la camarera, que había comprendido la causa de tal agitación, le dijo riendo que no se esforzara más por eso, porque los había puesto en un recipiente que había contenido miel. Demócrito se irritó pues le había privado de una ocasión para investigar, y hurtado una materia para su curiosidad. «¡Vaya!», le dijo, «me has disgustado. Sin embargo, no renunciaré a buscar la causa como si fuese natural». Y probablemente no habría dejado de encontrar alguna razón verdadera para un efecto falso y supuesto. Esta historia de un famoso y magno filósofo nos representa con suma claridad la pasión estudiosa que nos empuja a perseguir cosas de cuya adquisición no tenemos esperanza. Plutarco refiere un ejemplo similar de alguien que no quería que le aclarasen aquello que le suscitaba dudas para no perder el placer de investigarlo. Como aquel otro, que no quería que su médico le librara de la alteración de la fiebre para no perder el placer de calmarla bebiendo. Satius est superuacua discere quam nihil [Es mejor aprender cosas superfluas que nada (Séneca, Cartas a Lucilio)].
