Welcome back! In this episode of Applied Curiosity Lab Radio we chomp on a Curiosity Bite exploring what we owe our distant descendants. What’s our duty? What’s your duty?

What duty do you owe your own distant descendants? Is this different than what we collectively owe future generations?

Do you owe distant descendants good intentions? Are good intentions enough?


Discuss, debate, and dissect with us!

The lens is – and always will be – curiosity. Each week, fun informal conversations center around one delectable Curiosity Bite designed to give your brain the time and ideas to think about thinking, to flex your curiosity muscle… and maybe even… revolutionize the way you think.

This week’s Curiosity Bite:


What do we owe future generations? 

What do you own your own distant descendants?

In this episode…Curious Questions asked and answered:

Do you owe future generations something different than you owe your own descendants?

How distant do your descendants have to be before you stop thinking about your duty to them?

How much do intentions matter?

What is a sense of duty?

What do you wish past generations had done for you?

What do you do when you see someone sleeping on the street? Is this the same thing you did 10-years ago?

Do you contemplate death in a healthy way? Do you contemplate death at all?
