There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein.    

The miraculous does not have to appear miraculous. Bridie.

Discovery is seeing what everybody else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.       Albert Szent-Gyorgi

We are dependent. The more dependent we are, the more humane we become. Responsibility for our own actions strengthens as Nature takes its course, and   interdependence takes on new forms. We are now beginning to worry about this planet, and can we still depend on it to feed us all? Methinks we should be worried!

‘Progress is impossible without change,and those who cannot
change their minds cannot change anything.’

The accuracy of any new cognitive constructs rely on their external expression 
conforming to reasonable  standards. Where factual knowledge is clear and recognizable
it creates a basis for mutual success.
Success which can be shared by philosophy, and science.

The accuracy of any idea can only be shown by its duplication by another mind, however its construction changes.
Its validity will only be disseminated through its useful acceptance universally.
It in effect cannot be contained by any one person, that would  be a nonsense.

 The consciousness of a general idea has a certain “unity of the ego” in it, which is identical when it passes from one mind to another. It is, therefore, quite analogous to a person, and indeed, a person is only a particular kind of general idea.Charles Sanders Peirce, “Man’s Glassy Essence” in The Monist, Vol. III, No. 1 (October 1892)
