About Ben

Bio

Hi all, I go by Ben, Human growth and evolution is incredible and when you truly think about how far this race has come, it leaves you with a feeling of fascination, but i believe we still have a long way to go, not in terms of our physical evolution but the evolution of consciousness. Stay curious. Surround yourself with people who can further your thinking and open your spectrum, this will ensure our natural evolution. This is how i see TED and this is why i believe TED is truly a beautiful thing. Like red dye turning a bucket of water from clear, drop by drop, I think step by step TED can change the world. Much like my good friend and fellow TEDer Dejay Davison stresses, we have lost touch with nature, by combining one of natures greatest creations, the human mind, with nature itself..

I'm passionate about

The human mind, and consciousness. The effects we have on the universe as the universe has on us.

Talk to me about

Human ability, human consciousness, nature. Talk to me about anything, I thrive to learn.

How do we teach morality at a primary level?
Palak, this is a great question and one that very much needs to be addressed all over the globe. I think the answer lies in environment, and it comes down to the parents to create such an environment for their children so that they can grow up with and develop their own sense of morality, it's in us all but for children especially in the stages where they have no choice but to learn from their surroundings (environment) it's essential for the parents to lead by example. When a certain lesson is forced upon a child or anyone for that matter, it usually only generates negative reactions, but if a lesson is all around you, it becomes a sense and you learn from it instinctively. Imagine, if all parents of this generation knew that..

Strange questions that humans have not yet found an answer for!
I think from the time we're brought into the world until the time when we're ready to leave the confines of the environment from which we were moulded, is the time where we MUST be curious, we have no choice, we know nothing other than what we're being told, so we're constantly yearning for more information to establish our own sense of our surroundings. The question you brought up "why do we become less curious" is such an important question we all have to ask ourselves. Once we have our own idea of how things are, is that really where life stops? No, we had no control over the environment we were brought up in therefor we have no control over what we've come to know as life. We become less curious as we become more content with "that's just the way things are" Each one of us though, has the power to stay curious.
