It seems to me that there are two major areas of understanding that we need to grasp as a species and explore, but the majority never do, being so wrapped up in the mundane task of living day to day.
We need to understand what goes on inside us and what goes on outside us.
I know that seems like a rather stupid and obvious statement, but I make it referring to Philosophy and Physics and how they combine and where.
I want to see what the Kierkegaard’s, the Kant’s, the Nietzsche’s see along with the Hawking’s, the Einsteins and the Feynman’s. It’s a lifelong quest I know, but it’s one I undertake every day with baited breath while dealing with the mundane politics of Socialism, the equisit words of Plath, the philosophy of Buddhism and the unending wonders of my partner and daughter / step daughters. Each has it’s own importance and I hold each dear to me. It’s the juggling that maybe teaches me the most.
