OPTIMAL BALANCE


Is “right” and “wrong” open to interpretation? If so, who are we to judge? Can we look to science to find a place of equilibrium – a place on the spectrum between extremes where there is perfect balance? Is it possible to achieve an optimal environment for us and our children or is the creation of such a civilization merely a fictional, mystical Shangri-La?

Pondering borderline imponderables... I love this video. Perhaps where the common good prevails, the spectrum of morality shines the brightest? The Golden Rule as an ultimate guide, but even this is subjective, isn't it. Oh, this is getting far to heady.

I think we should take nothing for granted or as a given...not what is "right" or "wrong" or even the "common good", especially when so much dodginess takes place for the sake of what is considered "common good". And even "logic" doesn't always suffice when considering where the line should be drawn. We are indeed pondering borderline imponderables!
