Hi Mike,

***Just here to annoy you again.:)***

If that is your purpose, you are failing. You do not annoy me in the slightest.

I read what you said about Glenn and his post, and I have to agree with you. Nevertheless, I tried to give Glenn the benefit of the doubt, take him at his word, and challenge him to begin on the course he recommmends. Sort of put up or shut up.

Also, I did not mean to put down the importance of the history of ideas. I only meant that in order to begin finding a reasonable solution to our current problems, we need to go beyond that. You are right that that accumulated history is invaluable to us in our new endeavor.

***Have you read the book, Siddhartha, by the way? Paul or Glenn? Anyone?***

I have not read it.

***The meeting between the ascetic young man, Siddhartha and the Teacher, Siddhartha Gautama, is a fine departure point for reverie on the subject...including their subsequent paths!***

I am not very interested in reverie. I am more interested in some meaningful, realistic, strategic approach to solving our biggest problems. I think that the right kind of dialog on a forum like this just might provide an opportunity to make a contribution to that effort.

Warm regards,
