I think it’s important to remember that all subjects are man-made. We subconsciously know this, but don’t really internalize the fact that there are no categories to anything in the universe. We need to see the universe as a unit and not as the illusion of categories we create. Every place and time is connected.
One of the problems with school is that it doesn’t teach you how everything connects. We learn individual subjects of fragmented knowledge, but to truly understand what we’re learning, we have to relate all of the subjects together to form a more complete reality. Although it is important to delve in one subject and be an expert at it, it’s equally important to learn how the systems interact.
Words and numbers
concoctions of our minds
to explain the world
and through it, ourselves.
