1881. rethinking the rock and the garden

Imagine a rock in a garden.
Science looks at the rock
and poetry looks at the flowers.

We need to rethink who we are as a species
And who we are as a planet
And we need to rethink the relationship between us.

It will be tough because the problems we face simultaneously global warming, increasing population, migrations, inequality of income and other inequalities, quality of life, bad government and a tendency toward war rather than diplomacy.

Are we at the limit of our thinking, or can we do better?

Imagine a rock in a garden.
Science looks at the rock
and poetry looks at the flowers.

Science has a bias toward exploring the universal, the timeless., and the mechanical.  Life is ephemeral, fleeting, Vague.

Where is the better value?
