I consider it an error in scientific communication that, most of the time, merely the polished and flawless results of natural research are displayed, as in an art show. And exhibit of the finished product alone has many drawbacks and dangers for both its creator and its users. The creator of the product will be only too ready to demonstrate perfection and flawlessness while concealing gaps, uncertainties and discordant contradictions of his insight into nature. He thus belittles the meaning of the real process of natural research. The user of the product will not appreciate the rigorous demands made on the natural scientist when the latter has to reveal and describe the secrets of nature in a practical way. He will never learn to think for himself and to cope by himself. Very few drivers have an accurate idea of the sum of human efforts, of the complicated thought processes and operations needed for manufacturing an automobile. Our world would be better off is the beneficiaries of work knew more about the process of work and the existence of the workers, if they did not pluck so thoughtlessly the fruits of labor performed by others.

I think this is a good definition of a human being. Always discontent with what they have, they spend their lives looking for more. And that is actually a good thing humans have. But, as many other things, it can be used correctly or misused. When they thrive to improve themselves as species walking the path of love and sharing, they can overcome any limitation. But while infected with this need for self-gain and self-satisfaction that destroys the balance of the world, they will always remain in this “dimension” of limitation, fear and despair.
But the time will come when we will regain our balance either through an immense amount of suffering, as we like to live today, or through the relaxed and truly free path of connection.
The most adventurous journey to embark on; is the journey to yourself, the most exciting thing to discover; is who you really are, the most treasured pieces that you can find; are all the pieces of you, the most special portrait you can recognize; is the portrait of your soul.

The modern pleasures that humans constantly seek really are like bubbles. They put so many effort in doing them, in making them the biggest, in make them fly the farthest but in the end they are just bubbles. They are fragile and ephemeral and for a time beautiful to look at but they surely will disappear before you wanted, they blow up before you expected and in the end just you remain, and who are you without bubbles?
Look for the truth, even if it denies your very existence.
