The more you learn, the more you realise that the world is not black and white. This contrasts strongly with the world we live in as children, where adults show us how to easily to put things into categories like “good”, “bad”, “right” and “wrong”.
The other day, I made a bet with a classmate. He argued that there were four rows of seats in one of our lecture theatres. I thought that this was preposterous, as all of our lecture theatres had three rows of seats on all sides.
One of the things that I value most is integrity. I don’t mean it so much in the ethical sense, but more towards truth and reliability. You might think of it along the lines of “I am my word”.
Many of the things we do, day to day, are the same. We like to think we’re special and creative, but I think it’s important to see how robotic we are as well.
“What is value?”
This is a question I was posed with a long time ago. From time to time, I like to reflect upon what value is.
