A while back I wrote about the joy of solving problems. In fact I claimed that solving problems is what most people spend their lives doing, even if they don’t realise it. If that sounds like drudgery, I intended it to be the opposite. Solving problems is what gives our lives meaning. It’s one of the things that makes us human.
But don’t concern yourself that this is unsustainable. Don’t worry that we are selfishly solving all the problems and that future generations won’t have any problems left to solve.
Because the more problems we solve, the more new problems there are available to us. The more we know, the more we know that we don’t know.
That’s one of the things I’m doing with this blog, of course. Finding more questions I don’t know the answers to.
