More about boxes

I thought more about my post yesterday. I think people like putting stuff in boxes and labelling them because if they can define it, they believe (perhaps erroneously) they can control it.

It's perhaps because of the way we are educated. As engineers and scientists, we are always taught to breakdown a problem, identify and classify and solve it bit by bit. Our analytical bias is probably due to the system making us think that way.

Kids have no boundaries because no-one told them there should be any. Indeed, if you look at who has the greatest imaginations and see possibilities instead of roadblocks, it is our children and not us.

Perhaps we should learn from them as much as we want to teach them.
