Which fantasy universe map do I put on my office wall?
The depressing component of scientific literacy is identifying the limitations of what we are capable of in this lifetime. Indifference towards the flawed system allows the survival of hope for sustainability and happiness during a brief lifespan. We seek answers from the omnipresence of science and religion, but at the root of both is human beings meandering through reality to sustain an impure and selfish version of an isolating experience. Science simplifies the complexity of the universe to digestible portions journeying towards a valued explanation of just how meaningless we really are.
conscious thoughts are the brain’s paramour.
