: Hi Josef
: I did not say "don't respond,"
: I said you might not want to read them.
: Hi, rat. Well, I guess I lumped them
: together, "might not want to read
: them" pretty much includes not
: responding. Responding without reading would
: be trippy. :-)
: You said in response to my post: "My
: own (yes, we don't agree on this) take is
: that we think entirely too much, that it is
: a tangled mess of conflicting thought that
: messes up our simple natures which are
: intrinsically social, responsive, and
: essentially "good" by all measures
: we know."
: I took that as a suggestion that it was not
: so useful to analyze these things, which of
: course I am constantly doing. And I agree
: that there is merit to your view. I think
: your view is worthwhile, at least as
: worthwhile as mine.
: Despite many, many years (ten?) of both of
: us sincerely trying to communicate, we don't
: really agree on some essentials, and
: continued effort seems to lead to a sense of
: conflict. One rather defining difference
: seems to me your use of value judgments,
: "am I doing net-good", "you
: may be right; I may be wrong",
: "your view is worthwhile as mine",
: etc. In reading posts I tend to 'listen' for
: reality as I experience it, my value
: judgment seldom going beyond what's
: useful/not useful to read or say.
: After so many years of missing each others'
: points, theres's no good/not good,
: right/wrong, or worthines/unworthiness I can
: see, but I can see it really isn't very
: useful, we have afterall given it a good
: college try. I'll leave you to it, with real
: respect, rat...
Thanks for your thoughts josef.
