    Nice word play, Rad. The owls came first in the dreams...

    The power was already there but you don't put anything into the outlet until you know the wattage.

    My 1st thought is that with affluence societies move away from 'spirituality' because they don't need it. Who prays or meditates when life is so good? With changes such as the development of nuclear weapons, climate change, continuing war, and natural disasters life becomes a challenge, and because spirituality and religion are intergenerational customs the comfort of 'faith' and 'hope' are lost from one to the next. Answers exist for the 'lack' of existential relief but it is a discovery process and many don't have the ken to 'discover' them. Thus spending time on the psychiatrist's couch becomes a common phenomenon, such is life.

    It's easy to be a philosopher...

    Funny, I put this search in google: Did Epictetus have any sense?

    this is one of the returns:

    “The question at stake is no common one; it is this: Are we in our senses, or are we not?” — Epictetus

    That name is just funny. Epictetus. The possible auto-corrects are myriad. What senseless fun.

    I recall a woman who is atheist and made the case for the Golden Rule being a good moral barometer for life. She didn't have to believe in God. It just makes perfects sense and is good and ethical.

    I don't think she needs any therapy.
