Accepting That The River Is Chaos

Is Balance All That It Is Cracked Up To Be?

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”

-Carl Jung

Everyone creates a philosophy of life whether they intend to or not. It’s an inevitability of living life with a human’s advanced brain. It was thought for a long time that humans brains were advanced because they had more neurons and a bigger cerebral cortex. But it appears that notion is incorrect. Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a neuroscientist at the Institute of Biomedical Science in Rio de Janeiro, measured our brain neurons in comparison to other species and found them to be analogous in accordance to weight and size. One possible and probable theory that explains our brain’s curious ability to come up with pyramids and blockchains is our brain’s plasticity. Essentially, our brains development is less dictated by genetics than other species.
