This is a film about the nature of curiosity starring the ever curious SETH GODIN.
This film was shot in 2007 at Seth’s place. It opens thus;
‘What’s a fundamentalist? ‘
‘A fundamentalist is a person who considers whether a fact is acceptable to their faith before they explore it.’
The antithesis of curious.
Taking this definition of fundamentalism into the realm of our everyday relationship with the world, we may discover that we each have the capacity for fundamentalism.
Each at times using our judgment, knowingly or unknowingly, to adapt our attention accordingly.
Let this serve as a warning. For such an adapted view of another renders us blind. It might be the cause of perpetual conflict.
‘… it’s easy to underestimate how difficult it is for someone to become curious. Over and over and over again the curious are punished.’
But, is this reasonable enough grounds not to be so?
