Science is beautiful too!
Science gives us so much knowledge. We, humans, want to know all we can about ourselves and the world around us. We live in a time where we can learn so much through certain forms of educational media, and our educational systems. Being curious enough to ask questions is a start.
The experience of living life raises a whole lot of questions. Why things work as they do, and do not____. Relationships in particular raise many questions such as, “What is a good relationship anyways?” Why did my relationship fail?” Both of these questions involve who we are. And there is a lot more to who we are than we often think about. And the mind is where it all begins.
How we understand ourselves, and what we believe as being true about ourselves affects others we interact with because of what we say and do. When and if we take on responsibility for those words and actions matters.
Regarding this and other thoughts and conclusions, not everyone as they grow up gets to be a part of a dialog about what it is to be human and communicate well. The psychology of who we are is not discussed so we understand the role of the mind and body. Regarding my folks I know it was not an in-depth conversation with me or my brother. My observation was that the folks dealt with what happened to come up. I think this was a lot of my own parenting, with the twist of what I did think about and influence my kids with. I think this is basically how it works.
I think in general people get bits of info to think about here and there; unless they get involved in higher education or through what they personally discuss, read and watch.
But what if we did understand better how our minds and bodies work, as well, as how good communication would benefit us?
The world does not afford equal opportunities. Why? And how can we change that? Why can’t we improve more things about our world? Why can’t we become more inventive? What happened? Why can’t we encourage new ideas that help people become all they can be?
Whatever we do to change the world around us, it needs to be more local to where we are all at. It feels too big and overwhelming to be global about what is more intimate, ourselves. The feeling is we are ungovernable and that I because of what we allow to influence us. We need to slow our reactions to things down and think about things before we take action. We need to care about others by making connections, or life won’t feel like it’s worth living. If change is to happen it begins with ourselves. It means being happy and having hope.
The sciences are the beginning to how we can understand ourselves and the world.
