Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Essence of learning

We tend to think we know everything, but do we?

“All the efforts of the human mind cannot exhaust the essence of a single fly.”


The humble mindset recognizes we don’t and discovers why learning is a way of life. A way to live amid the overwhelming amount of information in the digital age. For as much as we think we possess the knowledge of something, it’s intriguing how much more is there to know.

What is the essence of things? An abyss of learning possibility which implies greater depth and broader horizons. The next time you think you know anything about something, dare to go after it’s inexhaustible essence. Even if it’s a mere insect.
