We Never Stop Learning
No Matter What We Think, There’s Always Something to Learn
Imagine an Alien has landed on Earth for the first time. We’ll call him Jeff.
Jeff is confused.
He’s found himself on this crazy planet with these weird looking creatures walking around.
There’s a lot he doesn’t understand.
He looks at them a bit closer. What’s that thing in their hand, they’re constantly looking at?
Why is that person speaking one language, while another person over there is speaking another?
Why is that person carrying a fluffy looking creature in a bag?
Who is this Trump person everyone keeps talking about?
Jeff has a lot of questions!
He goes up to somebody and asks a few questions. The person sheds some light on these matters.
Jeff feels enlightened. He’s starting to understand.
However, he still has more questions. He finds more people and asks more questions.
Jeff decides to buy a few books to help him understand matters better.
Day by day, Jeff finds himself getting to grips with life on Earth.
He now knows much more than he did when he first landed.
But, there are still things that puzzle him.
He keeps reading and questioning. He doesn’t stop yearning for knowledge.
5 years later, Jeff has acquired a wealth of knowledge about Earth. He might not understand everything, but he’s no longer overawed by confusion.
Jeff’s constant questioning has allowed him to slowly grow his knowledge, to the point, where he feels comfortable conversing and debating topics that once dumbfounded him.
One day, Jeff is waiting to cross the road. A young boy looks up at him with an inquisitive stare.
“Mummy!” The little boy asks confused at the creature in front of him, “why has that man got three eyes and no nose?”
The light turns green. The mother leads the child across the road while explaining that Jeff is an alien.
Jeff smiles to himself and strides across the road.
He gets to the other side and stops suddenly!
Suddenly, a thought flashes across his mind.
“Why do I have no nose?”
