Tools are meant to be used by humans. I think that we learned to think by using them. By using tools, our hands made a connection to our brains and then our curiosity gene dove in and our minds grew because of this. We discovered so much about the world poking about in it with our hands. And by using the power of the wedge, we learned to do all sorts of things from carving to cleaving to sawing and planing.
We are humans and that means we need to keep making that connection between hand and heart and mind. We need to make things whether it’s building furniture or creating a great meal. We need to keep that connection alive between our hands and our minds. Typing on this dang keyboard does not qualify. Building something does.
