Psychologists have discovered that the biggest challenges humans
face are dealing with death, love, and loss.
None of these three things can be dealt with by the rational mind.
They can only be dealt with by the irrational mind.
That’s why people who are slightly wacky, or religious, cope with
these big things much better than scientists do.
For years we’ve been saying, "Be more rational, be more practical,
be more scientific."
And now we’re saying, "No, hang on a minute. Let’s be a bit sillier.
Let’s think about faith and belief."
Seeing things that we’re not meant to see is actually what we’re
supposed to do..."
