    So, from the womb of a no-child that was once-child, came the ability to regain ones life and to loose ones child-hood-oncewas.

    But this is a story for another imagine-nation.

    And it will be writ. By the children and for the children.
    I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree with this. Adults take care of children for a reason, not the other way around. While I agree that there are definitely many things we as adults can learn from children and that it's wrong to stifle their natural creativity too much, adults have a more complex brain that children do. The adult brain even differs from an adolescent brain, (which is the primary reason that I think that adults having sex with teenagers is completely unacceptable). We formulate these concepts so that we can discuss them with greater clarity and hopefully greater tolerance of people's differences. Also, I'd like to add the English language is actually quite simplistic compared to some other world languages, so to dumb it down even further seems quite unnecessary. Language is constantly evolving (otherwise it's dead, like Latin) and there's nothing wrong with adding "jargon" to it.

    Since children are protected from physical abuse by lawful mandate, we must deploy psychological warfare. Have you seen these little fuckers?

    I wasn't being serious. My post was sarcasm, through and through.


    I think it's good to analyze and categorize things - especially the human body.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    That's because you have an MD from Harvard and you have a God complex.

    ...from those children of the enlightenment, an adult arose and was named Carl Jung.
    Even in his own words, Carl was not a man of the Enlightenment. He, himself, says his work, "Personality Types", was not based on evidence and reason but he received inspiration from a 'guide'.

    Carl was an ardent follower of the Führer. And Führer in German means 'guide'.
