Embodied

Observing infants and toddlers it appears that their main mission and source of joy is learning what it means be in their bodies in the physical world. As we age we become capable of abstract feats such as writing novels or creating machines that are nearly as omnipotent as God Himself. Yet it seems unlikely that our core task would somehow change, that being physically in the world is no longer job number one. And I say this as a guy who lives in his head way too much.
