DD said the World is so 'troublesome'...

Postby vlim » Thu May 19, 2011 9:58 pm

While combing my dd's entangled hair just now, she said 'the world is so 'troublesome'. Why do we need to comb hair and why do we need to earn money? Because of the need to earn money, we need to waste so much time in studying!'...After hearing that, I was :faint: ... then I told her, because we study then we will be good even to invent things such as machine to make clothes. She replied,'Then why can't human be naked like animals..'..Again I was :shock: ..and I told her then human will have fur like animals which come naturally to protect us from cold (which I think make sense).... :lol: ...and thereafter she is somehow convince that STUDY is important.... :idea:

I agree with your DD that the world is full of troubles and hence "troublesome". We indeed spent alot of our lifetime trying to solve these troubles. Sometimes we create more troubles trying to solve one but most times we try to minimise the trouble only, ie. we find a solution that is less troublesome to solve the troublesome trouble. In this way....we still ended up making the world troublesome because for each big trouble, we create smaller troubles, we still end up loading the world in quantity-form, MORE trouble, hence "troublesome". So she is perfectly correct! :wink:

So vlim, the reason for humans having to study is because we don't have fur. :D

Humans need to study because humans invented money and thereafter all the troubles started. To solve troubles, we need money. To get money, we need to study :lol:

vlim,

think your DD is speaking the highest truth in human existence,
back to the basics, technology and more comfort do not necessary
improved the living standard of people , city life become a cold place
compare to country living. :imanangel:

Baby are born equipped with the "purest of mind" but thereafter
a lot of the wordly concern crowd out the "good" as we guard our
own creature comfort and spaces and so on and so on and so on...
and we arrive at the 21st century and the world is still in trouble
:hi5:

My son said the same thing!!!

DS - Mom, why can't people live simply?

Me - We live simply, don't we?

DS - No, we don't. I mean live simply... like cavemen.

Me - Because cavemen have to spend too much time to look for food.

DS - But if we all look for our own food, then it will be simpler because there will be no need to have merchants and importers and trucks. Everything will be simple. No one will want or need anything except food... and since life is so simple, I don't have to go to school and learn how to deal with complex things. I just need to hunt.

Me - Ok. Over the June hols, you strip down naked and go to the garden and stay there and hunt or food. If there is not enough in our garden, then you go outside (still naked) to get food. You can get snakes, monkeys and rats.

DS - I don't mind, but I don't want to be the only one naked. Why can't everyone agree to be a caveman, so we can all live simple lives?

Me - Why you wanna live a simple life?

DS - So I dun have to go to school **eyes big big and a bit red**

Me - Awwwwwww... tomorrow you pontang school ok?

DS - No... I still must go to school.
