Seeing Things as They Are

When I saw this video two thoughts occurred to me that I thought would be useful for anyone who attended the Schuitema Personal Excellence Programme:

  1. How improbable and irrational it is to account for life on the basis of random accident.
  2. How deeply connected the skills of seeing things as they are and learning not to stand out are. If the octopus was human I am sure he would tell us, ‘in this world he who stands out is prey.’
