Adventures In Humaning goes literary this week. We read and discuss a poem by Sam Foss (1895) called ‘The Calf Path‘. This is a poem about how it’s in our nature to take the path. Frank and I have a meandering conversation that includes references to and the topics of:
- Escape Adulthood
- Science in general – how we tend to science the heck out of life
- And how we receive the conclusions of ‘science’
- Question even what you believe to be a credible source
- Even though you might not want to be the expert…
- It’s sometimes valuable to get your hands dirty to understand something better for yourself.
- Kids & school. Our education system is a calf path.
- Medical doctors, their path, and their constraints.
- You are put in a box, risked for insurance, and medicated like others despite your uniqueness.
- We tend to create solutions with no problems. Especially around the topic of cholesterol.
- But there is value to the calf path, it is our human nature, maybe a simpler, more ancestral path would be easier on us.
- Frank mentions the Weston A Price Foundation.
