Turtles All the Way Down


Just like the Native American creation story, the more questions I ask the questions I have. This class has made me ask questions about the most basic concepts that under any other circumstance I would have never questioned, which I take as a sign of a class well done.

How was the world created? Why do I believe what I do? What is intelligence? Can one person influence an entire culture? Was our present culture inevitable? Where did these beliefs come from? Who is making the decisions in my brain? Who is I?

Turtle, turtle, turtle…
