The word 'curiosity' comes from the Latin word "cura" meaning "Care and Cure". So can I deduce from this that my 'curiosity' or careful exploration of something is a healthy attribute that may cure what ails me?


Curious Human

"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education." Albert Einstein

 Barbara Marx Hubbard was curious about the atom bomb in 1945 when she was just 15 years old. She asked the Universe this question: "What is the purpose of this new power that is good?" This simple question asked by a curious young girl many years ago has led her around the world into a rich variety of experiences. She is 82 years old today, an author, innovator, futurist, and leader. She tells us that the purpose of this new power that is good is part of humanity evolving into a new consciousness.

Are you curious about some aspect of life? What is your question? I'm really curious to know what kinds of questions people are asking of life. Write me at
