One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If weve been bamboozled
long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. Were no
longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured
us. it is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that
weve been so credulous. (So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the
new bamboozles rise.)

Yes, many primitive people still believe this myth...But in todays technical
vastness of the future, we can guess that surely things were much different.

One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with
Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just
to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldnt
be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending
to be so outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he actually didnt
understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid. He was
renowned for being quite clever and quite clearly was so -- but not all the
time, which obviously worried him, hence the act. He preferred people to be
puzzled rather than contemptuous. This above all appeared to Trillian to be
genuinely stupid, but she could no longer be bothered to argue about.
