Curiosity Threshold

I am writing this post while I wait for the 5 PM show of “Celestial Fireworks” at Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium, Bangalore.

The exhibits at “Science Park” which is part of the planetarium property, make the kids awestruck. I remember being curious at that age trying to know why certain things happen in a certain way.

What happens when we grow up? Do knowledge and education stop our curiosity? At what point did we stop questioning things around us?

I think there are many levels of curiosity. Each with a certain threshold. When we surpass a threshold, we need to simulate ourselves to be curious about the things in the next level.
