Alan Watts: The Chinese Farmer

Scientific thinking is about the limits of logical efforts. We organize and plan our life and try to create ideal situations, yet the larger picture is not accessible to us. The mind maneuvers, craves, thinks and plans how to obtain what we want and avoid what we don’t like. But we can’t control the future that way because there are too many factors. Every step we take is an interesting experiment.
