    Sure, at times I am lonely and I enjoy the company.

    It does seem to me that attention has superceded money. And we no longer pay each other in money, rather we pay one another in attention.

    And of course attention is vital for personal growth.

    For instance, babies who are not paid attention, die.

    So I would suggest you continue to try to knock me off my high horse. Her name is Tricksy.

    All fair and good, but there are ways about getting attention without having to come off as completely condescending and bullheaded about it.

    I mean, there is bad attention and good attention. Usually, babies survive best with the good sort. If they are paid bad attention, they could still die from lack of all that is good.

    Does Tricksy like sugar cubes?

    Well it is interesting about babies. Even if they are well fed and physically cared for, they will literally die without attention.

    And even bad attention will keep them alive. As long as it is attention.

    Tricksy is a high strung skewbald pony. She is hard to catch but, as you guessed, she has a weakness for sugar.

    Well yes, they would die without attention regardless of being fed and physically cared for [isn't that some sort of attention, in a round about way though? ]

    The sort of bad attention I meant was that kind of 'shaking the baby to shut it up' attention. That can result very poorly :/ Poor babies...

    Ponies are notoriously high-strung [well, most, so I've heard- they've got bad attitudes sometimes] but a spoonful of sugar and all...

    What were we talking about again?

    Attention is the name of the game, and attention can be either positive or negative.

    Attention is attention.

    You either pay attention or you get a free ride.

    It seems to me that most are paying their dues.

    You bring up your pony Tricksy rather frequently, Victor, so naturally I'm curious. She seems like she must be very important to you considering how much you talk about her. What breed is she? How many hands? Do you have any pictures?


    I'm tempted to say "pics or it didn't happen!"

    I feel enough INTP tonight to have a go at the OP.

    The idea of anything being a "cure" is misleading. There are no external cures for what ails us psychologically. The healing takes place from the inside out. And it is not a "cure." It is a change.

    People who detest all forms of psychology? (Don't see any present in this thread) It seems odd to find them among us. Chances are that their efforts at a "cure" have failed and they blame the external factors without searching for the wounded pieces within which have resisted healing.

    Well, I am rather fond of her and sometimes she is fond of me, but mainly when there are no other horses around to keep her company.

    Sometimes she will put her head on my shoulder and go to sleep. And I can tell you that a horse's head is very heavy.

    When she puts her head on my shoulder, I feel like Charlie Brown when Snoopy falls asleep on him - I don't dare move.

    Sure, hate is merely the opposite of love - it is indifference that is the killer.

    So I assume you have a king sized bed.
