Be Kind to Moth
A short comic based on this post that’s been going around.
Please be kind to our tiny friends? Moths are really harmless, and despite the fact that people freak out over them eating holes in your clothes? Only very few species do that, and it’s not even the adults. It’s their little babus who you’ll see munching away XD. Moths are harmless in pretty much every way shape and form, and things like candles and bright lights confuse their internal navigation systems. A moth in your home flying towards a light is literally terrified and confused. So be nice the the little cutie and just bring it ouside? :)
moths pollinate at night and are also food for our ever-valuable and vulnerable friends the bats!
Be nice to moths.
This is why I don’t understand people who are scared of or think moths are gross. They are adorable fuzzy babies and need to be protected at all costs!
When I was in Costa Rica last month a gigantic sphinx moth flew into my face and it tickled Moths are lovely
The problem with experts is that they think they know it all; ignore data that don’t fit their points of view; and extrapolate from the past on a linear basis. If some disruptive technology hasn’t come along in the past, the assumption is that it won’t happen in the future. What’s worse is that experts often try to block technologies that might up-end their roles. After all, if things change too fast, they will no longer be experts.
The role of the traditional expert is really evaporating. Another way of explain this is with Dave Snowden’s Cynefin framework. I think it us pretty obvious that more and more areas of human activity are moving from being just complicated to becoming complex and thus signalling that the causal relationships are not any more given in advance and can be learned about just-in-case. In a complex world the causal relations have to be explored by interacting and probing.
This would imply that tomorrows experts are more similar to psychotherapists than car mechanics.
