Have you seen the movie: "IQ"?
I saw it on T.V. once.
It's a presumably make-believe story: it's about 4 gentleman (Einstein, Bohr, and two others also top scientists) who help a garage mechanic meet the girl of his dreams (who happens to be a very serious scientist).
They do this by helping the mechanic portray himself as a hot-shot physicist as the girl seems blind to his qualities; but might see him more favourably if he looks like a scientist.
It's crazy but hilarious; has interesting discussions about "time"; is an interesting story of the issue of the potential problem of say supposedly excessive seriousness in science.
(But hey, why not be serious if you want : freedom; be serious, or not serious; you are alive...)
Amazing how serious nursery rhymes can be.
Regarding "commitment to a hospital": please read books by Thomas Szasz. See www.szasz.com.
When will, say, people be freed from notions of threats by alleged thought policemen, imaginary or real?
I refuse to be "a jackboot in the human face forever" to roughly quote George Orwell. If you are not into nursery rhymes, O.K.; but why is it supposedly going too far?
"Unless you become like these small children, you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven"? I don't think that means you have to go in for nursery rhymes; it's about a state of mind; a non-coercivenes; where numbers are not compulsory say?
Jesus Christ washed the feet of His disciples; He arrived as a little baby. Surely we can learn from this, not to be afraid to be innocent?
Why do we have to be important, to count with numbers?
Are we not God's children?
I do not like coercion; so you are right; nursery rhymes are not compulsory; but they are not compulsorily thrown out either?
"How do you like your reality to be served, Sir?"
one could say ?
