I've got another question for humanity. Suppose you knew everything about a flower, from the quantum level, to the cellular level, to the macroscopic level. Every nuance there was to be seen here had been explored. Would you still see beauty? Would you see even more beauty as you unravel the mysteries of the flower, or would the flower become boring, mundane, and ugly? Do you learn then, to observe the beauty of the universe, or is knowledge itself simply a drug, the high you feel from learning, which dissipates and with it removes all beauty.
If you’re lucky enough to have a passion – most people aren’t – grab it. And that’s what you do for the rest of your life. It might take a while and it might not be easy. But grab it and you’ll be happy. Fuck the money. That’ll come or it won’t. But you’ll be doing what you want to do and that’s what life is supposed to be.”
