Wonder

November 14, 2017

I love Dr Who but the best monsters and special effects are on Blue Planet II and they are all natural. No computer generation. It's all there.

 

For example have you seen the Cuttle Fish? Okay, I've seen them before but have you seen how they flash and ripple with ever changing colours and patterns and shape hypnotising crabs.

 

I've made this point before but there are certain things those who lead us ought to read and see and hear before they pronounce on some issues and Blue Planet II is probably one of them.

 

It brings on the sort of wonder leaders ought to have about the world, as much as the rest of us ought to have too. It brings value and a richness to our experience that we so lack at times and dull our existence in doing so. And if it doesn't bring on a sense of wonder or doesn't offer a richer experience than we have to worry seriously about competence. I'm watching how a Gupta and Octopus, two very different species, work together to catch prey. Amazing. Or the dolphins and humpbacked whales who meet in the Indian Ocean and behave as if they know each other and play and socialise.

 

It's all there, how to live in the world. Just need a wee sense of wonder and an hour or two to be amazed. Best training for leadership there is.
