Tales from the cosmos: curiosity did not kill the sagacious – El Tiempo

The brand new expression was “sadness killed the sagacious”.

When they tell us that curiosity has killed the sagacious, we understand that they are warning us of the dangers of curiosity and, in a way, erecting a barrier so that we stop wondering what moves us. If science was guided by the famous expression, it would certainly have failed.

Devotion to science equals curiosity. Scientific curiosity is the main engine that pushes us to understand little of nature, little known or understood but undecided to discover and understand.

It is the same curiosity that accompanies us very closely in the first stages of life, when we receive new stimuli in early childhood and embark on the exploration of a world that opens up in the presence of our puzzled observation. We are observers by nature and this is one of the most important tools we can use to memorize and capture the basic skills of interacting with the environment. As we grow, we seem to lose a bit of that innate curiosity.

Satisfying curiosity takes time and effort; Therefore, basic research requires patience and dedication.

Adults who dedicate their lives to science have never stopped asking questions and trying to get to the bottom of things; They are not satisfied with the answer that things are like that, period. Scientific research is then a sport of creativity and curiosity that has allowed us to understand how the stars shine, why the window turns red during total solar decline and many other mysteries that have accompanied us for millennia.

However, there are still a lot of questions to answer, probably more than yesterday as each answer brings new questions. Instead of being an inconvenience, it’s perhaps the most fascinating thing in science, because when it seems like we have the last word on a nail, it opens up a whole new set of mysteries to solve.

To paraphrase Einstein, it is important not to stop asking questions. These questions, which most often fall under basic research, lead to great discoveries which, in turn, lead to remarkable changes. The advances in technology that surround us today are due to characters who simply wanted to know more; it is the utility of a useless knowledge. Satisfying curiosity takes time and effort; Therefore, basic research requires patience and dedication.

The best thing for science is that the phrase “curiosity has killed the evil one” is falling into oblivion. After all, the catchy phrase ‘care has killed the smart’, referring to the fact that too much medical care could harm you, was a phrase first used by British playwrights Ben Jonson and William Shakespeare in late of the sixteenth century.
