Who knew?!

My friend Alex McManus believes that we carry 3.5 million years of knowledge in our bodies.

Above everything else, we are learning creatures – and there is so much to learn.

Everything is knowledge or potential knowledge to us, whether natural or made.

Learning is best served slow but, as with so many areas of life today, it is in danger of speed.

The best learning is slow because it not only provides information to be converted into knowledge but when we live what we know then it turns into wisdom:

‘So when we say, “save the earth,” we’re talking about saving ourselves.’*

(*Billy Moyers from Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers’ The Power of Myth.)
