We live in a profoundly mysterious universe. While there is much about it that we know and continue to discover, there is much more about it yet to be learned, countless mysteries to explore. Why are we here? What is man’s purpose? What happens after we die? Is there life on other planets? Is there one perfect soul mate for us? Does God exist? Does Satan exist? Is there a Heaven and Hell? And then, of course, there is the eternal mystery of babies.
We have learned much about babies, but it seems that the more we learn, the more we find we have still to learn about them.
What can a baby see and hear? How does a baby explore the world? How do they communicate? Why do toddlers have temper tantrums? Do babies dream when they sleep, and if so, what do they dream about? Do babies experience pain the same ways and at the same levels as humans? How do babies make sense of the world? These questions and more are answered in this timely and thought provoking essay.
