Attractors around divisive topics are too strong for most of us to keep us away from hardline opinions and convictions. We serve them up: On the rocks – hold the nuance, please! But common ground grows in the nuance of our shared humanity. So, we must try.
Publishing a jigsaw puzzle on Jigidi is a courageous act. You share a little bit of yourself. This is, in essence, an act that makes you vulnerable as it is for the world to see and react upon. Even in a compassionate community such as Jigidi, this is bravery. But the reward can be profound.
Right now, we watch our societies moving, standing up for equality and against racism. For new policies and raising awareness on systemic issues. No upheaval regarding rights stays only local in a globalized technologized world. This is one of the ways the internet help humanity taking leaps forward. Help us cooperate to find common ground.
The health crisis we are all currently experiencing draws us closer to each other but also entails divisive features. The first because we are threatened by the same matter at the same time. The second because we get the infection from each other and need the same resources to get by (yes, that includes toilet paper).
In this blog post, we pay homage to the CEO we all hold within - he's our personal (overworked) hero through this. And also, we have something to ask of you.
27149 comments were shared this week on 7558 puzzles on Jigidi. Did any of them have you working overtime trying to figure out what on earth the meaning and the intent was with the message?
Chances are a good many of them did.
Have you ever tried? You know - that game where you here happily tap along to a tune that plays in your head. And a friend gets the miserable task of trying to guess the song.
Oh, ye poor friend!
Tens of thousands of people come to Jigidi every day. They share their passions, experiences, and outlooks via puzzles and comments - and you thus refashion your own. This is human creativity at work.
Our minds are built in a manner that allows us to grow smarter throughout our lives – you can help this process along by fighting the urge to do too much business as usual.
