Curiosity depends on an open mind. Rod's points are indeed lucrative because as long as you can "practice" curiosity, you do not have time for narrow-minded griping, a major depressive episode, etc.

Those other things depend on a closed mind. Discussion, and mainly contradictions, are what open the mind and provoke more curiosity.

I am surprised, gardenergirl, that you doubted Rod especially on the point of major depression. If you are not in remission, but in the crux of major depression, your brain no longer sees other options as valid and rejects them out of hand. That is the epitome of a closed mind- curiosity and major depression CANNOT coexist in a closed mind.

I think that Rod is suggesting that we continue to open our minds, consciously and sometimes with great effort, because to do so would make it harder for depression to take a hold of us.

Did I get you right this time, Rod???
