: In a way I do, Steve. The part about just

Well, Steve, you're assuming Dao has a perspective, and that you can sense what that is?
I sense what you're trying to say, but it seems to me the only in-synchedness you can ponder is your own viewpoint. Not that there's anything wrong with that. :-)
My in-synchedness tells me that beauty/ugliness or love/hate is purely subjective. How can one morph into the other unless you give them those names? When true beauty is felt, there is no ugliness. When true love is felt, there is no hate.
Caveat: If someone keeps trying to inundate me with ugliness and/or hate, I scoot my lovely ass outa there.
