Your brain’s special faculties: music, humor, spirituality,
mathematics, eroticism, art, nurturing, narration, gossip! These
are fine spirits to pour into the cup of life. Blessed you are if
you have a vintage bottle of any of these. Better yet, a cask!
Better yet, a vineyard!
Be not afraid to grow. The mind’s cellars have no ceilings!
What other capacities are possible? Imagine a world with all the music dried up: what poverty, what loss. Give your thanks, not to the lyre, but to your ears for the music. And ask yourself, what other harmonies are there in the air, that you lack the ears to hear? What vaults of value are you witlessly debarred from, lacking the key sensibility?
Had you but an inkling, your nails would be clawing at the padlock.
--Nick Bostrom, Letter From Utopia
