The more we experience, the more we start to understand the world around us — but more importantly, the more we realize what is yet to be seen, heard, smelled, touched, and understood.

In other words, as John Lennon said (and the Red Hot Chili Peppers famously sang): “The more I see, the less I know” — a line that inspired this design.

The better someone understands physics, the more they understand how much is yet to be understood about our universe.

The more seasoned a neurologist, the deeper and more profound their questions are about the science behind our functioning minds.

George Loewenstein, a Professor of Economics and Psychology, noted in his article “The Psychology of Curiosity” that curiosity isn’t driven by telling people to ask questions, but rather by showing them the gap between what they know and what they don’t.

Loewenstein encourages us to “prime the pump” with intriguing but incomplete information to spark inquiry and push us to ask our own questions — a kind of firestarter to fuel our burning curiosities. The idea is, if you start learning, you’ll want to keep learning.

There is so much yet to be discovered.

Stay curious.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
