I just wanted to note the loss of the last two days. I was going to make it three, but here you have me.
Loss comes with life. If you are lucky, you lose less. But loss remains inevitable. Is loss a failure? Or the foundation for success? In the end, you decide what it is. By the story you tell yourself about the loss.
So, in our story, I had got to my vision, as the culmination of our history. How we emerged to cover this planet. And are now ready to act as one, all 7+ billion of us. And got stuck at how to explain the steps from here to there.
The laws of biology are more flexible than those of physics, yet must operate by them. All matter is governed by the universal laws of physics. Chemistry describes the laws of physics at molecular level, or perhaps best thought as a dance of electrons between different Biology, or life, uses chemistry as its basis. And must always follow the laws of physics. In our brain cells as much as in the stars from which we were born.
I have been meaning to say something about the different domains of human knowledge reflecting a single reality. Physics, chemistry, biology were the three sciences I was taught at school. Mathematics is not part of this triad, but is vital to them all. Then you have the human sciences, such as anthropology, sociology and economics. But are these not built on biology? It seems only recently has economics changed the assumption of human behaviour as rational to being beset with cognitive biases.
One of these insisted I produce this; just to keep myself on track to designing tomorrow. Despite, or perhaps because of, its loss.
