How Science and Religion answer the Universe's Big Questions with Joosung Kwon
"It’s almost like this religious devotion to it because one of the things that I think appeal about religion is that there’s this grand narrative to life. There’s Good and Evil, and it makes life really epic in a really mundane way. I think that’s a very human thing, to want story and understanding. These kinds of questions, Why are we here? even if we’re non-religious, are still there."
- Joosung Kwon
Joosung Kwun was one of my best friends from high school.
After school, we went our separate ways, not really communicating except for a few messages back and forth on social media. Just a few months ago, we reconnected after not having seen each other in close to 15 years. It was a wild experience, spending time with someone that I was so close with, so long ago.
It felt like it had only been a few weeks since I had last spoken to him, the only difference was that we both had two completely different life experiences to share with each other. We spent hours catching up, sharing stories, talking about life, and exploring the deeper questions of the universe. It was truly a special experience.
Joosung is now a very successful documentary filmmaker living in London. I’m so grateful we were able to reconnect after such a long hiatus, and I’m excited to share this conversation with you.
