Philosophy Wire: Stay calm…

If and how babies recall what they have learned depends on their mood: what they've learned when feeling calm is inaccessible when they're active and vice versa. This was shown in a study with 96 children aged nine months. [1] Search inside. And you will remember. That once you were not calm nor active. That once you just… were! Difficult to accept standing still, when you are running around in agony. Difficult to understand living, when you are trying so hard to avoid dying.

Oh, poor humans. Don’t you see?
The rope you are trying to balance on, is you!
Try to remember.

You never started walking…

There is no rope…
Stay calm now…
Or you will fall!
