Hi Mike,

Yes, I'm back, etc., etc. You said

***We cannot expect to live in peace and prosperity until communication (of true information about justice and cosmology) is greatly enhanced, both in quality and in extent of circulation.***

I think this is exactly right! All the differences I see in this forum, and everywhere else in the world around me, seem to arise from failures in communication. For example, Aurino and I usually agree when we can get down to the meat of any issue, but our "kneejerk" views of your post are diametrically opposed. I think there is no basic disagreement among the three of us on anything you wrote, but I am sure there is a huge amount of misunderstanding.

I think that is a microcosm of all the conversations on this forum, -- and a microcosm of the human condition as a whole.

But, I think there is hope. I think much of the solution to misunderstanding can come out of patient civil discourse. And I think the real bright spot on the horizon is the vast improvement in the "extent of circulation" of ideas, this being provided by the internet, and in particular by John Huggins. John, you make the "smart people's" forum look sick. My hat's off to you.

Warm regards,

Paul
