I Wish Humans Had More Wisdom

What is wisdom, who is wise? 204 People

    What Would the World Be Like If We Valued Wisdom More?

    The Deeper War On Terror Lies Within

    Yesterday we heard from a very dear friend in Tokyo. Her apartment was broken into Saturday night. Three men entered through the window, they tied her up with duct tape and ransaked the apartment, looking for money or drugs. They cut open and ripped apart every possession she had...

    A Strange Mixture

    Humans are a strange mixture. We have such incredibly advanced brains with processing and reasoning capacities far beyond the most advanced super-computer, and yet we have such base instincts. We're ruled by such primitive emotions as fear, anger, greed, lust. It's almost as if a...
