You were born curious. All humans come into this world with an innate desire to explore – taste, touch, hear, smell, and see everything within our reach. To be as succinct as possible, we are all, every single one of us, natural scientists.
No! Despite cultural evidence to the contrary, science is not a separate, exclusive, elusive field where brainy researchers conduct baffling experiments in rarefied environments.
Play is our fundamental mechanism for experimentation and every part of learning. At the end of the day, our inherent passion for information drives that playfulness. Science is art. Art is science. Curiosity is the key!
Without the desire to explore the possibilities there is no innovation, ingenuity, or revolutionary ideas. Science is life. Life is science. And - curiosity is the key!
Imagination, vision, individuality, and poetic genius, cannot exist without the compulsion to create. Life is art. Art is life. And, wait for it – curiosity is the one, and only, key.
Tragically, the coercive systems within our society are designed to obliterate all sense of inquisitiveness to, purposefully, produce obedient, compliant, docile citizens, who are not provided the tools or environment to learn how to think for themselves or create change.
When you take away the opportunity to question, explore, and create, not only do you remove the artistry and eloquence of science, but, eventually, the beauty and intentional merits of life itself.
You can make a difference by investing in DRC – the environment deliberately designed to instigate curiosity and creativity, and to generate outside the box - free thinkers. Thank you!
