If you haven’t stumbled across this video yet, please do watch it. Its stunning. If it is real (and I refuse to believe it isn’t), it raises questions about nurture vs nature that I find very intriguing, especially when you contrast it against this. Both acts seem impulsive and cavalier, motivated more by novelty and blind optimism, yet the results were very different.
This seems to be a topic that a friend and I revisit daily and while ultimately I am a believer in nature and nurture, the nuances, the amount our environment and experiences can and/or do influence our behaviour seems impossible to determine, yet impossible (for me!) to stop asking..
And what if they actually were in opposition? Nature V Nurture..
