It’s been such a long time.. Reading Sophie’s world makes my head spin with a lot of ideas.. I would have written this a long time ago.. but i just haven’t found the time..
anyway.. i would just be dropping by.. i would just want to share something about what i have read… the questions and insights here that are really philosophical are written/ found in the white envelopes mailed to Sophie Amundsen.. I just hope that i finish reading the book now.. i’m already on berkeley’s chapter.. and i’m excited to find out what is going on with the “Hilde Moller Knag” thing…
Who are you?
Where does the world come from?
Is there a basic substance that everything else is made of?
Can water turn into wine?
How can earth and water produce a live frog?
Why is Lego the most ingenious toy in the world?
Do you believe in Fate?
Is sickness the punishment of the gods?
What forces govern the course of history?
Is there such a thing as natural modesty?
Wisest is she who knows she does not know…
True insight comes from within.
What came first – the chicken or the ‘idea’ chicken?
Are we born with innate ‘ideas’?
What is the difference between a plant, an animal, and a human?
Why does it rain?
What does it take to live a good life?
So that’s it.. all of the questions and insights from the little white envelopes.. until sophie and alberto have to meet in person.. and the letters stopped appearing.. huhu…
