Exploring Natural Wisdom

THE NATURE OF WISDOM

 

For thousands of years mankind has been on a quest to understand the nature of the universe and our place within it. It has always been understood that there is both an outer quest (for rational, mental understanding) and an inner quest (for intuitive, emotional understanding), but ultimately it is the balance between the two that really matters.

Science and spirituality are essential companions and it is only when we separate the two that we are no longer able to see the full picture.

This is a new network for people who are interested in exploring these issues and who wish to share their knowledge and understanding with others.

The network site is currently linked to the main Sophos site and some pages are still under development. To return to the network after opening any linked page please just close it again.

Please note that, due to other commitments, I have not had the time to maintain this site, but hope to get back to it sometime soon!

It currently links to the main Sophos site that I am still working on so please bear with me as I continue to develop it.

TRUE WISDOM

There is so much talk about wisdom and yet the way that we educate our children is the very antithesis of what it is all about. One of my own favourite Einstein quotes is 'We can't solve the problems of the world using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them'. In Ian Gilbert's new book 'Why do I need a teacher when I've got Google?' he explores the issue of a rapidly changing world where we all have information at our fingertips and how more and more…
