My Linked Notes

    I want to share a really cool antidote from [[The Power Paradox]] about [[Charles Darwin]]. Keltner writes "He carefullly wrote fifteen hundred letters a year, or about four a day, to collaborators who included missionaries in remote parts of the world, a French neurologist working on facial musculature, MD's reporting on when patients blush, fur trappers, gardeners, zookeepers, and pigeon fanciers. Darwin's writings are an expression of many people's ideas from all walks of life."

    This builds on what I wrote about on [[2020-10-18]]. The real power of [[Charles Darwin]] was not in his own mind, but in the incredibly rich environment of ideas he built for himself by engaging with so many people.

    There is a crazy antidote from [[The Power Paradox]] I can't get over. [[Charles Darwin]] used to write four letters a day to people around the world. He used to hand write four letters a day and I can't hit send on a text message to ask how my friends are. What is happening?

One last thing
