#93 Charlie: Curiosity and The Thrill of Not Knowing
Release Date: 12/12/2018
Today I plan on doing another solosode with Producer Paul on a subject I wrote on a blog a few months ago, which was titled “The Thrill of Not Knowing.” The ever increasing popular speaker and writer Jordan Petersen once asked the question “What is your friend: the things you know, or the things you don't know?”
I really like that question because I so strongly believe that it is “what I don’t know” that keeps fulfilled. I am an explorer, a wanderer, and an experimenter.
So you can see why I so resonate with Jordan Peterson’s quote above. My greatest friend is indeed “what I don’t know.”
I wonder, is this true for you as well? I have a feeling that curiosity and discovery are embedded in our DNA as human beings. How else can you explain the exponential growth in technology, the sciences and even the arts as we venture into that “galaxy far, far away”?
And then we have the all too familiar dialogue that opens the Star Trek series:
Space, the final frontier
These are the voyagers of the Starship Enterprise
Its five years mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life
And new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before
Wow. The very statement gives me Goosebumps. And it has been true for just about as long as mankind has been around. As a species, we are wanderers and explorers seeking out strange new worlds.
So let’s bring in Producer Paul to talk a bit about this stuff.
