On a rather interesting note in the news I came across this piece about " The Hobbit " being released for viewing in China : ( I think it would be fascinating to know what their impression of " Tolkien's " work would be given the differences in cultural background. ) At last, I watched the Unexpect...

Too much attention paid to the misfortune of others leaves little room for compassion. ALOberhoulser, Nowadays, I'm thinking a lot about compassion and Campbell's idea of 'joyful participation to the sorrows of the world and asking; Is-this possible for ordinary people/most of us? Can-we generate t...

Mystery - an unknown with an answer Mystical - an unknown with no answer Beautiful, Romansh :) Yet, I think that probably some human perception is required to make a story. Namely, a story has to reflect a human perception about how certain events are following one another. And there seems to be th...

Music is dealing with such deep archetypal material, and those who play don't realize this.

... "No coincidence, no story." Made me think of Roms beach story... I think it is important not to imbue mystical qualities into so called coincidences. I'm not saying you did, just in case someone else was tempted. ;) http://edge.org/response-detail/10211 Rom, May-I ask you why -as a proud esoter...

I'm reminded of the word unique to German - schadenfreude - and how that concept has become viral (it seems to me).

"To feel envy is human, to savor schadenfreude is devilish." Arthur Shopenhauer "Compassion is an unstable emotion. It needs to be translated into action, or it withers.

So important that sometimes people can even tolerate authoritarianism :( Majority rule is often listed as a characteristic of democracy. Hence, democracy allows for political minorities to be oppressed by the "tyranny of the majority" in the absence of legal protections of individual or group right...
