I'm sure Hitler had an open mind when he read the SD, otherwise he 
wouldn't have read it in the first place. In this case, an open mind 
doesn't necessarily lead to enlightenment.

The Kalama Sutta is the best teaching regarding the nature of the 
open, yet questioning mind. It gives clues as to why an individual 
like Einstein interpreted the SD in one way and Hitler in another way 
and why the results were totally different.

Ponder this, what is the esoteric meaning of an open mind? An open 
mind is not necessarily useful if there's a lot of impurities getting 
in the way of clear communication. The final result can end up 
distorted. Using an exoteric example, we can use the analogy of a 
radio station and a radio to compare how our minds interpret 
information. Depending on the strength of our antennae, we might get 
a clear channel and then again, we might just end up with static. 
This "quality of consciousness" can be compared to where the level of 
our frequency is at.
