Today at work, a 3rd grader was staring pensively out the window.
I walked over and joined him.
“Are you wondering why we’re on this planet? What our purpose is?”
“We’re on this planet because if we were on any other planet, we’d be dead.”
Hm. Touché, 3rd grader.
“It is amazing how long and how energetically we can discuss the unknown. If I were feeling philosophical, and this almost never happens, I would wonder aloud about how fundamentally human that is. The raw energy we dump into the unshaped void. The strange fish that return with us, home.” – Tycho Brahe
