Mind as a telescope

Do you remember that feeling , as a child …when you looked up and thought that the world you live in, is filled with giants …

…that precise sentiment is what defines a mind that is overwhelmed with information and doesn’t know where to begin processing…

As a student of design (architecture), the concept of “worm’s eye view“ and “bird’s eye view“ taught me how to zoom in and zoom out of scenarios . It allowed for a deeper sense of navigation in understanding my work and thinking, to far greater depths than I could have ever imagined …

Navigating (processing) a route or a trodden path is one thing …the ability to navigate the depth and height of unknown concepts is another ball game altogether…

I believe , growth is the ability to balance conflicting thoughts with reason…

…and building your mental dialogue in a telescopic manner where it can zoom in and zoom out at your discretion allows for that perspective to grow …

Good questions scaffold informed navigation…and the ability to zoom in and zoom out …adds depth to that sense of navigation…
