    The Universe is Mental?! Many would agree with that...

    Here's a thought for you Aragorn. The future is written in stone? Probably true, but who wrote it? You did, I did, Wind did. That's the secret. I intuitively agree with Number 2. Number 3 brings to mind ... Separate but Equal. True or False? Both right!

    I'll tell you what is funny, I was out jogging one day in the predawn hours and I saw a 'large figure' ahead of me wearing heavy garb and carrying what looked like a rope. I was alarmed but as I passed him, he jumped about three feet off the ground, I didn't burst out laughing but I had to work to squelch the urge. It seems he was out walking his dog.

    In many cases, people live their lives on autopilot completely obvlivious to this, that, and the other. That's a bigger problem than neuroticism. The neurotic at least limits the damage on the world to oneself. The obvious other end of the scale is the personality disordered.

    That's not entirely true, because the whole "woke" movement was born from neuroticism and is still primarily driven by that.

    There most certainly is, and it's everywhere nowadays, not just in the USA.

    Ok, I give, but on that note, I believe that the 'folks' central to 'vocal wokeness' ARE the personality disordered. My daughter is about as woke as most people get AND she applies it everyday in her work to 'help' patients. She never 'castigates' anti-woke people for being unable to process the 'root meaning of it', she is just aware of it.

    I've considered this before and concluded the big is composed of the little with the same human failures. Witness Sparta and Athens.

    Further, it is not feasible given the population density of the world today. The analogy can be applied to the notion of the Gold standard of economics.

    Those people got big mouths.
