Curiosity is Essential to Survival

I wrote this piece for SquarePatch.org today. I’ve been thinking about what is essential during this pandemic and crisis.

Curiosity is essential to survival.  Grazer uses the example of early life tribes that had to use the power of story to share experiences of new discoveries.  Fire. Water. Discovering that you can boil potatoes. Or wondering if cougars were cool to hang with (not cool!). In our evolving as humans, it’s been curiosity that has helped us discover, invent, and protect.  We’ve had to learn how to survive our whole lives and curiosity has been an agent, a discipline we’ve needed.
