TEDx Institut Le Rosey – 4 november 2017

“The horizon: a line between earth and sky between the known and the unknown. A line that both marks our limits and at the same time calls us to go beyond what we know; a line calling us to the unknown and undiscovered.

Yet wouldn’t it be easier to opt for the security of what we know? Why struggle? Why take risks? Why not settle for the here and now? We know what we like and we like what we know.

But we are human beings. It is our nature to be curious and creative, to imagine, to invent and to change. And there will always be those amongst us who look beyond – socially, politically, educationally and scientifically.

And what lies beyond the horizon? Another horizon, which we shall never reach but never stop attempting to reach, following “knowledge like a sinking star beyond the utmost bound of human thought” (Alfred Lord Tennyson).”
