Sure reading can be confusing; or cause more confusion ; so read more on the topic; eventually it will become less confusing ; and then ask questions to help clear up some confusions.
Reading is what gives us depth . Reading as in a book ; not Internet reading.

And I read magazines just for its exposure to new ideas and thoughts on any topic.
