Curiosity, Problem Solving, and Play

@PhilosophyTweet shared from The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, by Virginia Postrel
It is in curiosity, problem solving, and play that we discover who we are. These are the very qualities and activities that make the future unknown, and unknowable. On the verge between centuries, the dynamist promise is not of a particular, carefully outlined future. The future will be as grand, and as particular, as we are. We cannot build a single bridge from here to there, for neither here nor there is a single point. And there is no abyss to cross.
