"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the most fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Anyone who is unacquainted with it and can no longer marvel, no longer be amazed, is as good as dead, his sight gone." - Albert Einstein in a 1932 recording he called "My Credo"

Labels 

@Noah
Labels externally applied to others, especially to further out-group bias, often function as a means of dehumanization.

Labels that capture a person's sense of individual identity, especially when they provide better framing *and* social group identification and inclusion, can be life-affirming.

We are shaped and formed by language. It's part of how our brains work. The problem isn't labels; it's how they're used.

TY @stackingstones for recommending it to me!
