A Place to Think

forest-the-sun-morning-tucholskie-158251

It often happens to me that on a leisure walk in a wooded area, I find inspiration for thinking.  Perhaps a result of solitude, or even the limited company I may keep; it could be the monotony of the flora, and the continuous sounds of birds and other critters that inhabit the forests I frequent.   I have often encountered thoughts about difficult notions that in seconds become clear and easy to grasp. I have faced abstraction in ways that my otherwise busy day doesn’t permit.  I am learning to embrace this process, I can, if necessary tackle complex ideas anywhere, and this is important… however, for the sake of complexity, I will take more walks in the forest.

Do you have a place in which you find it easier to think?

Weekly Science Quotes

"Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence."

Louis Pasteur

------

"Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that's precise, predictive and reliable - a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional."

Brian Greene
