A focus on logic inhibits our humanity.

"…So we're more open to hearing what people have to say and suddenly maybe broadening our Horizons. I think if we look at these personal experiences as storytelling, we're bringing back something that has been long lost to a degree, and it introduces again, reminds us to wonder. To be curious, it also reminds us that the world is not black and white. It's not always logical. There are not always answers. It is much more nuanced and complex than that.…"

There's little room for complexity & wonder.

"…I'm also wondering about poetry and poetic craft because I have a poetry assignment to do today. So that's what's on my mind. But I think the more you ask questions, the better, because like I just said, nobody knows everything. So seeking to understand as much as possible is a beautiful thing to ask why and wonder. I think people should never stop asking questions because there's always more to learn.…"

I agree 👍

Welcome to Swell!

"…Yes. Yes. I almost think that when people think they know it all or they have all of the answers that they don't entirely realize how much they've impacted their world. And if they added a bit of one wonder how much more it would expand. And I think also that wonder opens the door a bit further for empathy to wonder about someone else and their experiences. And I think that along with what you said about anecdotal stories and so on, you're absolutely right.…"

Yes! @liora

"…And I think that that distinction is important, especially when trying to understand why these personal anecdotes are so effective at bridging that gap. And I think they are effective because of this inherent connection that people have. This capacity for empathy is sort of from my understanding, I guess, triggered by hearing someone else's vulnerability. And I think if someone's willing to share what's happened to them, then that's a beautiful, valuable thing.…"


"…I think you touched on another really key component, and that is the vulnerability. You know, the authenticity. Because a story without those things is just a story. It's not as likely that we're going to really deeply keep connect with it or that person without those other aspects.…"

"…I mean, think about historically, like we used to think that the world was flat. Well, now we know that the world isn't flat, all of these different ideas and things that were at one point considered facts that were then disputed. And I don't know, I just don't believe in fact, I just don't think that it exists. And I think we're doing a lot more harm than good when we rely so heavily on facts. So I really appreciate this conversation.…"

"…So it matters of. I guess we could even say the soul and the mind. These two need to coexist. One cannot exist at the other. At least. That's my opinion. But great post. It's.…"

The soul and the mind.


"…But then he plays it for you a third time, and you realize that is not at all what it said. And he really gets into the point where history helps to define some of the ways that we see things, like our experiences as well as how very different our senses are and how we see color, how we see various things, how different our brains process that information coming in.…"

Facts & perceptions. @Izzy


"…I always think, though, that if you were to take all of us and squish us together to create some sort of an entity called society, that where we're at now. We sort of lost that equilibrium we hold in high esteem logic, science, critical thinking, et cetera. But I think we've gotten to a place where we feed ourselves delusions.…"

Equilibrium. Honesty. @Wuandurful

"…Like, I don't learn the most in school or I don't learn the most in classes where a professor is just lecturing at me about all of these definitions and theories and whatnot I learned the most in discussions. I learned the most in conversations with others in which they share their personal perspectives and experiences of the world.…"

Promoting humanity by listening to each other


"…Yes. I don't know if you've heard this or not, but I've heard it said many times that if we want to broaden our Horizons, to travel, to immerse ourselves in various cultures, to have those conversations, and you know, while we can't do that because of the pain, pandemic and sometimes other reasons, money, time, et cetera.…"

Yes! Talking to strangers! @Izzy
