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

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

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