Why are we not putting all of our efforts into discovering our universe and our place in it?

Most of us have what we need, so why are we so absorbed with things that lose value quickly and in our mortality which can best be understood with discoveries that have yet to be made.

      I feel like the earth is naturally "happy". The earth adjusts, adapts and continues to sustain us in spite of our poor stewardship at times.

      Perhaps it would be helpful to be more like children with curiosity, respect, unconditional love and recognition of the gifts the earth gives us? It feels to me, like most of the discovering we need to do is in ourselves.
