Scientific mindset

by joetwo

To have a scientific mindset

Means you can’t pass a hole in the ground

Without peeking inside

Or play with a toy car

Without taking pieces off

Until, eventually, it no longer works

Different types of bugs

Have to be examined at close quarters

Then placed with others to see if they fight

Poking, prodding, sniffing and dissections

All part of the trade

Before there is even training

Before there is theory and hypothesis

There is curiosity

The innate tinkering of a child

Harnessed, and given better tools

Yet the same, the same wonder

The joy of a world to explore
