    There have been cultures that are not competitive and probably there still are. I think the Navaho culture was one. Children are discouraged from being better than the group and cooperation is the norm. I understand they work well until they are attacked by the trained killers of a competitive society. Then the children are sent off to boarding schools to be trained, brutally if necessary, to accept competition as the superior way of life.
    Ironic, as humans would never have survived or evolved except as a cooperative group.

    “… fear of my own existence.” Excellent description. How odd that he’s been practically forgotten. Thanks for bringing him back so memorably.

    In my experience, the figs show up gradually as one travels the road.

    Well, I never saw Eliot’s roots described quite that way. Very creative. I especially like Michelle Annes’ jello. But I have a strange sense of humor. Best wishes.

    Whenever a bureaucracy gets on something like “merit based raises”, etc, it becomes a way to keep the higher paid, experienced workers from getting raises and someone who challenges the authority of the higher ups, suggests new ways of doing things, etc, had better be independently wealthy. I saw it 3 times in my career, and the only way to do well was to become like sheep. That also meant it was fine to check the box without doing the (much needed) work. My evaluations dropped for A’s to C’s every time.

    I almost agree with MeGoNow, but the problem is not with Zen Pencils; the interpretation is fine. I don’t agree with the idea the the “other” has the key. My sister and I have been successful in our long lives and would hate to live as the other does. We like each other and are amused with the awareness that we probably never would have met if we hadn’t been raised together; we don’t live on the same planet.

    This one sure produced more action than the ones that I liked and so did everybody else. not enough to disagree with I guess.

    Many authors say simply that they had to write. A woman I knew said that, when she had young children, she got up at 4 am to have writing time before they woke up. I guess many artists have said the same. I know of an inventor who lost his marriage because he couldn’t drag himself out of his workshop.

    It’s interesting to see that there are no arguments against the idea and yet so few people in the world who live as though they believe it.

    This is pretty much the opposite of some of the others, and also valid. Living is a sort of kaleidoscope venture and you present it well.
