84170 - The colander

N. Lygeros

Sometimes we can’t see
how important are
very simple utensils
for our mind.
A beautiful example is
the colander.
We think that it’s important
to keep in mind everything
but it’s wrong.
The important thing is
to know what we have
to keep in mind
in order to contribute
to the evolution
of Humanity.
And for this task
the paradigm of the colander
is fundamental.
It works like a specific sieve.
This is exactly
the role of the polymath.
He’s not a join of Knowledge
as the society consider them
but a colander of Mankind
because he knows
what to retain
to create a trace
for the future
with its essence.
