We Can Never Leave Ourselves Behind

When we’re out on a walk, studying for a paper, talking to some friends, or watching the news, it’s guaranteed that we’ll bring ourselves along for the ride — as well as all our baggage. We bring our memories, education, upbringing, and culture. We come draped in a swaddle of preconceptions and cognitive biases. We each have our window onto the world, yet windows will only ever have one view.

The Jigsaw Of Many

The Jigsaw Of Many

Haidt’s wisdom is to change this. For however one-directed we might be, our human intellect allows us also to adopt multiple perspectives. We can imagine what it’s like to look through a different window. Like the Indian parable of the blind men groping at an elephant, we each occupy only a tiny vantage point on the world. Truth and reality cannot be grasped by a single mind; rather, they are the jigsaw of many.

“An idea is something that won’t work unless you do.” - Thomas A. Edison

When we see the great wisdom that comes in trying to suspend our assumptions and adopt those of others, when we see the value in stepping away from our biases in order to see more of the picture, we can maybe recognize our limitations and try to overcome them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
