What humbles

Question of the Day January 27, 2012 ~ What Humbles You?

What humbles you?

Most things.
The amazing complexity of my body, or of a single cell.
The mechanisms of biochemistry.
The night sky, and contemplating the enormous distances and energies involved in those tiny points of light.
The fact of my consciousness, derived by a series of recursive processes of evolution by natural selection across several different domains.
Other people, and how they respond to the trials of life.
Infinity, Mandelbrot sets, and a host of other mathematical constructs.
The vastness of time of space.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money

  1. “Other people, and how they respond to the trials of life.”

    I have found this to be true for me as well.
