One of the most beautiful realisations that I have come to and continue to learn more about is that I don’t know a thing about anything.
I look at a tree for instance, and usually you draw your conclusions. “It’s just a tree”, you might say. But coming to the realisation that it is more than just a tree is profound.
It may look like a tree from where you sit, but there is so much more to it than meets your eye. That tree is a whole system of trillions of cells working together to create a singular tree which is then just another piece of a larger system and it can go on and on and on.
So, what you see may just be a tree from where you sit, but there are millions of other pieces to that tree that you are yet to know anything about. That makes you forever a student of life.
