– And this has got me wondering today; a Wikipedia article on “Learned optimism” mentions a soldier killing some non-combatants & feeling okay about it because of “Learned optimism.” It makes me wonder about our inherent, untaught thoughts/values/reactions & how might they be good-enough for what we’ve been through & are going-through.
– Heard this lady on NPR talking about science Saturday, and she said something like: science isn’t about putting things into boxes; things are connected. And I was just floored – like, if I was there in person I would have jumped-up and cheered & said, “now say that again, and expound upon that idea for a minute!” I think she was from the White House Science Thing; she was also talking about some 19th&20th-Century female scientists.
