I am often stretching myself to open to concepts that seem larger than my human brain can fully understand at the moment. Because of this, I have had to become conscious about actually integrating what I learn “in theory” into my own experience and then actually put it into practice in my life. If I skip this step, it can start to feel like what I am studying is separate from “real life.”
I went to the Boston Museum of Science yesterday for the first time in years. I watched kids play and experiment with their senses at the Take a Closer Look Exhibit.
The exhibit description read “Exercise your powers of perception to see what you can discover when you pay attention to your senses, and learn about ways technology can extend our reach beyond what we can perceive on our own. Explore the world around you using sight, hearing, touch, and smell. To supplement our own bodies’ capabilities, we have developed technologies to help us extend our senses — to help us perceive things that are too fast, too small, too far away, or invisible to the naked eye.”
