Ah that's great, let me know how it turns out please Ormuz, sounds like you found yourself an interesting line of work.
What is Curiosity?
Curiosity - Say a gentleman building his home out of lumber, he has some family helping and they won't stop complaining about all the splinters
they're getting from the work. Curiosity
is the gentleman, when he gets a splinter, he examines it, yet he's not pulling it out. He starts to
think, " Isn't it amazing this tiny piece of lumber started out as a tree, then the wood was milled and made usable planks which this splinter,yet
even smaller broke off from this plank"........ He then pulls out his splinter and tries cutting it smaller, smaller, smaller, this man cuts it so
small he can barely see it and yet he's still Curios
to cut it again and again.........
That man is curious, one could assume if he kept o this path maybe he'd discover cells or made another break through. Curiosity
evolutionary advantage imo.
It is what makes people great, Curiosity is the first caveman that finally got sick of dragging meat and supplies around etc, thought there must be a
better way, this caveman starts slowing the group down by trying all different ways to carry or pull his share. The leader of the hunting pack is
irritated and chases our Curious
caveman off and returns to the hunters to continue..... Our Curious
caveman continues walking back to
the cave alone meanwhile he's still shifting his share all over his body trying to figure out a better way, when he slips on a smooth rock and nearly
falls he gets angry and kicks it and watches this smooth rock roll across the ground. He drops his share of the meat and runs over to the rock staring
at it Curously
, slowly he places his foot on the rock and moves his foot all over with such ease..........
This caveman was curious, while others wanted nothing to do with his fumbling around etc. One could assume this man could possibly go on to develop
the wheel. Why? Curiosity
set him apart even in his time.
Through my studies i've come to understand curiosity is and always has been essential to human development in almost every way, mentally, physically
etc. I can be like einstein and be so curios i do thought experiments in my head and produce results, or physically i can be our caveman and
physically step on a rock and instead of kicking it aside and cussing like the rest, he places his foot the rock again...
It's beautiful and can be applied to pretty much every invention and revolutionary line of thought because no one would have ever wondered if there
was more or an easier way. Curiosity Rules...........
Curiosity (from Latin curiosus "careful, diligent, curious," akin to cura "care") is an emotion related to natural inquisitive behavior such as
exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in human and many animal species. The term can also be used to denote the behavior
itself being caused by the emotion of curiosity. As this emotion represents a drive to know new things, curiosity is a major driving forces behind
scientific research and other disciplines of human study.
