One thought on “Coffee and empathy”

  1. I practice a sport that has been reasonably quantified for about three centuries. In physics measurements are a central part of asking questions which can lead to a better understanding, but more importantly to better questions. There is a very deep beauty to this that helps put many things which we can’t quantify (and there are many more of them than there are things we can) into perspective – for me their beauty sharpens considerably.

    Those who concentrate just on what might be quantified are very tone deaf and probably can’t ask very deep questions. It is a delight recognizing how little we actually know – there is great sport still to be had.
