People search for the meaning of life, but I believe it does not matter as long as whatever someone does helps the human condition in some way. We have a responsibility to make things better, and I think ultimately we need to be able to leverage our way out of a reaction to the nature of things instead to directing our fates. How do we change our perspective of life and death from a tragedy to that of a comedy? Who doesn’t want a happy ending?
How do we do this? Maybe there is some philosophy and religion, but we each have a set of skills that we can use to make things (at least a little bit) better. I have abilities in architecture, engineering, writing, and art. How should I use these? I have a feeling many of the coming posts will be at least partially about this.
