In the article “As We May Think” I read this quote on page four
“If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.”
This quote is something that resonated with me. After having an internal conflict a few months ago about what qualities I found important about myself. It brought me back to a Ted Talk video my friend had shown me, which ultimately helped me find resolution.
Both Vannevar Bush and Ken Robinson talk about how society has praised certain qualities. Regardless of how society has changed over time these qualities remain most valued. They point out some of the fallacies in our beliefs and structure that should be revised to further advancements.
