Well, sure, in nontechnical language. Good place to leave it, really.

Patterns of light and optical memories have a lot to do with whether you wore glasses and if your parents found out how blind you were soon enough.

And keep guessing and speculating about those contents and their taste which are inside that jar


Unrequited love molds character.

Don't knock it, Duck!

Everyone has their experiences, which is what they are attempting to report.

"Never open it and taste the inside contents."

Sage advice, Yogi.

Still musing on "what is Mind" in the Copenhagen airport.

Not expecting any breakthroughs. Weak beer is not helping.

Read an op-ed by David Brooks from The New York Times a few days ago. It is titled The mental Virtues and had some interesting ideas that seemed worth sharing. Posted it as another thread where DMT suggested posting it here. So, if you want to complain, it's his fault! ;-)

I'm curious to see if it will create some discussion and where it will go. Here is the post:

"Interesting op-ed in The New York Times from David Brooks on holding some key virtues (values) in mind for developing of our thinking. http://nyti.ms/1pnBuI2

According to Brooks, these values include love of learning (curiosity), intellectual courage (willingness to hold unpopular views, self-regulation of beliefs and views, critical consideration of information), strength of position (firmly held through critical self-evaluation, but not dogmatic, strength of conviction appropriately adjusted to strength of evidence), humility (not letting vanity or the desire for status get in the way of accuracy), autonomy (thinking for yourself, avoiding merely parroting others thinking), and generosity.

Brooks talks about generosity in these terms, "This virtue starts with the willingness to share knowledge and give others credit. But it also means hearing others as they would like to be heard, looking for what each person has to teach and not looking to triumphantly pounce upon their errors."

And, Brooks summarizes with, "very often thinking well means pushing against the grain of our nature ó against vanity, against laziness, against the desire for certainty, against the desire to avoid painful truths. Good thinking isnít just adopting the right technique. Itís a moral enterprise and requires good character, the ability to go against our lesser impulses for the sake of our higher ones."

Inspired me to want to share and work on doing a better job satisfying those values.

ST reminds me of hanging around the campfire after a day climbing (mostly); seems like it works when everyone in on the conversation is reasonable and respectful to the degree there is foundation present for the leg-pulling, teasing, challenging, and sh#t talking to stay in good fun."

This sounds like reading from Proverbs

There is an old saying.

The heart is never neutral.

The heart is the seat of the soul, the living person them self, which control the mind .......
