What do you miss by amassing mathematical knowledge about the stars?
The feeling of kinship when you return home late and everything is quiet and all you can see are the stars. They have shifted but you still recognize some constellations you probably can’t name.
What do you miss by analyzing the chemical composition of food?
That chemically identical pizzas can taste very differently depending on who you are with, what the weather is like and how much you have been craving a pizza.
What do you miss if you structure your day to do everything as fast as possible?
All of these things and more. Logic tells us how to do things quicker or for more money. But it has surprisingly little to do with felt truth.
