As we march forward towards the peak of human accomplishment, let us, even if for only a fleeting moment, assess the true drive that motivates our progress. Technology has brought comfort and efficiency to every aspect of our lives. Medicine is able to remarkably manage physical suffering. The internet has brought the unprecedented speed with which to make informed choices. And yet, as if scrambling in the dark, happiness and fulfillment continue to elude many of us. An inner voice whisperingly insists, as if yearning, that there must be more; a larger purpose, a more meaningful role for which each of us has arrived to this world. Some look for answers at museums, where glimpses of past civilizations are preserved as part of the human heritage; others investigate the arts – classical music or cinema. And many look to revive education as the means to help our youth discover life’s meaning. Exploring these faculties through the lens of philosophy, a love for wisdom, kindles a spark of wonder and joy – so essential to persist on the path to Discover, Awaken, and Transform into what lies in our potential. We invite you to join us as we embark on this voyage of hope, at the start of the new year!
