There remain among us many still who are unmoved by what Goethe called "the best part of man [humanity]." These (the uncurious and unawed in the face of the unknown) remain, even now, in the condition of those prehuman apes who are concerned only with economics, sociology, and politics, hurling bricks at each other and licking their own wounds.Me, I prefer to be evolved enough to have wonder, to believe in that beyond which can be seen and measured, and to take joy in this amazing universe in which we live. I will not wait around patiently for these folks to evolve. I'll be looking over the next hill, peering under the next rock, peeking through telescopes and microscopes, and doing what I can to help those who become collateral damage in the brick throwing exercises.
Hope to see you there!
