    Is this such a bad thing?
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Oh not at all. I don't see anything wrong with feeling a kinship or connection with anyone, except for maybe violent or murderous people. Feeling connections with others fosters bonds if it's mutual, and if it's one way is useful for self understanding and grasping at ones identity more firmly (though it can lead you astray if it's inaccurate).

    Nothing wrong with that.

    From the Tao Te Ching: "He who is in harmony with the Tao is like a newborn child."
    Matthew 18:2-6: "2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me."

    Religious literature is full of references to childlike wisdom. And yes, that includes appreciating LEGO trains.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    I'm drawn to them because they're an "anomaly". It's really boring to see a masculine man being masculine because it's expected of him. When a woman does it, it's almost empowering and refreshing?

    I am starting to sound like a feminist.

    "In education, we feel, something must be amiss and the way to sort it out is, of course, to have targets. Quite an interesting idea, this idea that you know what it is and you aim straight for it and you get it. Targets and algorithms and systems and checklists and procedures and guidelines. And this is all about making sure you have the right product; but somehow this doesn't seem to be working.

    And one of the problems is it suggests that education is about a thing, which is inserted in another thing, as you insert a widget into a machine. But it's not like that of course; its about a relationship. Education is about a relationship, it's not a substance. And that relationship cannot be legislated for, because it is about all sorts of things that can't even be described.

    A manner, tone, an enquiring mind, and openess; a model of what a certain way of being might be, for those who are still in the process of becoming who they are. - Ian McGilchrist"
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
