    Default The Beauty of Nature

    Today I wanted to share with all of you, a glimpse into -- what I believe -- one of the most inspiring minds of the world: Richard Feynman. In this video he talks about the beauty of being lost in the uncertainties in the Universe, and I have come to the realization that if I adopt the attitude which he portrays in this video, it may be easier for me to accept that there is not necessarily any ultimate purpose to my existence, but I can live with that... as long as I doubt and ask.

    Choice quote from the video: "I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong. [...] I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose.”





    Hope you guys will enjoy the video as much as I do.

    EDIT: Here's another one on curiosity that is equally amazing.
