Wichita State University TEDx Talks – Replace Fear of the Unknown

Replace fear of the unknown with curiosity. A TEDx Talk from WSU Professor ED Baker.

Professor Baker opens by describing a world with endless possibilities. A world where the unknown is filled with positive outcomes.

Next, Ed goes on to speak about fear of the unknown and why that fear exists.

Tools Of Survival

The Professor discusses the tools of survival needed today. He contrasts technology tools of today to weapons like rocks and guns. Tools of survival from battles in the past.

He asserts that survival tools of the future will focus on the following: 

  • Curiosity
  • Creativity
  • Connections

Curiosity, Creativity, and Connections in Children

The presentation addresses that children are not yet afraid of many things because they have not learned to fear. As a result, they are curious and take deep interest in everything around them.

Children desire to make connections. He later states that connections are critical to innovation.

The original quote from Alan Watts:

“By replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity, we open ourselves up to an infinite stream of possibility. We can let fear rule our lives or we can become childlike with curiosity, pushing our boundaries, leaping out of our comfort zones and accepting what life puts before us.”
