What has been the best day of your life so far?
An all too common story, Ousmane. We often regret what we didn't do. I was estranged from my father before he died and for a long time I couldn't come to terms with what I missed. Then I began to accept and trust that he loved me enough to forgive ... and then I started to forgive myself - that's probably when I began to grow up!

Dear Ousmane and Colleen I love your viewpoints and I thoroughly agree that we should simply be grateful for 'now'. It's a great, positive outlook that increases wellbeing and leads to contentment (one of my favourite words/states). Sue

Tyler Cowen: Be suspicious of stories
Messy is good! I think we are becoming too accustomed to 'perfection' as portrayed in films, media and advertising. We seem to have lost the ability to differentiate between fact and fiction. We all need some fantasy in our lives, but not at the expense of truth.

Rebecca Saxe: How we read each other's minds
Great talk, clearly demonstrating the fascination we have for the brain and moral reasoning. I loved the final thought that we will not have a 'paradigm shift' in our understanding in the foreseeable future. Good! There should always be an air of mystery to human functioning ... when we know everything there will be nothing to strive for!

How can we bring clean drinking water to the needy ? For those who trek tens of miles to collect water and carry it on their heads.
Its all to do with the imbalance of power. Those whose every waking minute is governed by the need to get the basic human requirements have no time/energy left to protest. Perhaps it is a way of controlling large numbers of people and keeping them oppressed. I cannot imagine not being able to just turn on the tap - it's beyond my experience, so it's more difficult to empathise. Perhaps raising questions like this on Ted is a small way in which to raise awareness.
