“The four characteristics of humanism are curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race.” — E. M. Forster
What is a mystery you would love to solve?
Not too long ago, there was a time when people didn’t know what light was made of, or where colors came from.
I’ve been slowly circling my way around the history of color theory, and, to my surprise, many polymaths across history studied color, trying to unlock its secrets.
I shouldn’t be surprised—observing what most overlook and experimenting with how things work is a prerequisite for Renaissance types.
I wonder if curiosity and wonder are built into our DNA? How else could you describe a race fascinated with continuously learning, improving, and uncovering the secrets of nature and reality?
No mystery is too small or too big.
So, what mystery do you want to discover?
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
