The Shape & Meaning of Things

The Shape & Meaning of Things

As dads we play a heavy role in the grand scheme of things. We’re a major part of shaping people who shape the world that shapes people of the world with shape-ness and world-ness.

As such, no matter where you were before you were a dad, there’s this thing in us searching for “the way of things.” Like a magnet has a charge of sorts built into it, when your baby flops out of your woman’s body it begs questions like:

  • holy sh*t, what’s this life all about?
  • OMG! G!?
  • holy sh*t, that’s weird looking.

No matter what you “believe,” sh*t gets real when you meet your baby. (For more thoughts on this I recommend this post on The Future & Our Kids

That’s why I like this video so much. Give it a watch, but first, read the description:

This striking Radiolab video made by Everynone was inspired by Radiolab’s Desperately Seeking Symmetry episode. Filmmakers Will Hoffman, Daniel Mercadante, and Julius Metoyer III play with our yearning for balance, and reveal how beautiful imperfect matches can be.

Good, right?
