    Have you ever read Bertrand Russell's idea that there are two modes of existence, the possessive and the creative?

    Its a little like Erich Fromm's having or being modes, although Fromm's is a little different, at least I think Fromm's explains the experience economy a bit too (as in "having" experience being a thing people imagine they can "possess", which Russell didnt live long enough to analyse and even Fromm only saw the start of among rich people in his day).

    The later, the creative, is kind of like the creative mode. Its in a book called Political Ideals but I think its a misnomer, its politics sure but its more a kind of philosophy or world view determining more than just that one thing, if that makes sense. Anyway, just thought I'd mention it.

    @Lark
    No I haven't, but you made me curious so I started Political Ideals a few days ago. Thanks for the response.

    Most of the time mathematician, then surgeon or actor. Or a postman - an idea of putting letters in the correct mailboxes was appealing to me. Later, in my early teens, I stopped having dreams and started planning instead. My goals haven't changed since then, so now I'm studying theoretical physics and probably will publish a book one day. So let's say my childhood dreams came true.

    I wanted to be a fighter pilot.
    And then, I learnt you had to study math real hard to do that job.
