    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I guess I view it as having six in one hand, half dozen in another. It's truly a matter of the grass/greener syndrome. My brother just came back from Ghana and was telling me about how emulative of the British the rich in Accra are and how even the poor seek to have as many trappings of the West as they can lay their hands on. Everyone sees the other situation as better.

    In terms of quality of life, I'm quite happy where I am as I surf the internet...I mean work in my climate controlled office. I think I'll head to Chipotle for lunch!

    *smiles* I'm not stupid enough to think that I'd be able to survive with the current mindset and body I have, in the wild. I'm very aware that I'm a spoilt little girl when it comes to the comforts of the 21st century, that I'm also in no way genetically build anymore to even try and survive in the wild. And as much as I resent the society we've build sometimes, I also am very much aware that I'm dependent of it. Doesn't take away the yearning though. A movie like Avatar just kinda...makes those feelings surface more, I guess.

    Actually, I should clarify.
    I'm not sure what "nourishing one's idealism" means exactly.

    Movies (and other art forms) definitely can nourish my thinking/understanding as well as my imagination/creativity. I also have aesthetic tastes and can appreciate texture and nuance.

    But those seem to be less personal than whatever "idealism" stands for.

    It was more an experience for me. Escapism... or, less negatively, projection into another world, via the characters and immersion in the 3D experience.

    I just happened to care about the world and people, and I actually had feelings stirred in me due to the size and newness of some of the world, they flying, its beauty at night, etc. I just let myself feel things and respond as if I were in the movie, rather than trying to dissect it all.

    I'm an evokateur -- I expect art to generate some abstracted amorphous but intense feeling state in me that pulls everything together holistically. Art that doesn't resonate in some way inside is boring, bland, or meaningless. It's sort of the same thing I experienced during decent worship services, especially if I was playing piano and creating the mood myself. Transcendence of some sort.

    "Idealism" sounds more specific, like affirming your faith in people or how certain values will triumph or something. It's less about that and more of a holistic immediate experience that leaves me feeling connected with everything.
