What Inspires You?

I love inspiration: I think it’s one of the most important and underrated aspects of human experience. That sense you get when something wonderful, something amazing takes your breath away, drops your jaw and makes you go “Wow!” I find inspiration in many things: art, theatre, music, the natural world, the fantastic discoveries of science, the vastness of space. But the best inspiration, for me, comes when something is not just astonishing but also represents my deepest values. When I see my Humanist beliefs mirrored and expressed in a beautiful, compelling way – that makes me go wild. Recently I’ve been watching Symphony of Science compulsively, have put Jason Silva’s videos on repeat. There’s even a video of Jason Silva autotuned by Symphony of Science!

So, what inspires you? Where do you find your values reflected and supercharged? What makes you excited, rapt, and proud to be a Humanist?
