The Importance of Discovery

My latest column. It begins:
What would life be like without discovery? From the moment we are born, discovery plays a vital role in our development as human beings. We discover our limbs and how they function.

As we age, if we are not continually engaged in discovery, how happy can we really be? How content can we be in life?
