Ron, I have been looking into Friedrich Nietzsche on the Great Courses. It is particularly true that minutes ago I just finished a lecture about Nietzsche's view of the Greek tragedies. It talked about how the philosophers had to come to terms about the individual and the society in which the individual exists. I got the impression of the somewhat dichotomy between the good of the individual as comparable to the good of the society in which that individual resides. If fact I suspect that some ancient societal influences have made it good for individuals to thrive, as long as the individual can also abide in said society. Rebels are frequently not the norm, then, again, certain political agendas, as we have seen several times over a century of time can, and have been a difficulty for individuals. It is inevitable that a balance is still needed to provide both safety and allegiance for the individual, as well as, provision for society to function as caretaker and provider also for the individual. It is still a needy enterprise to bring that balance to its wholeness.

Another thing, your perception and my perception may not coincide, at the individual level, yet there is synonymity of similarities, to a certain degree. I may not have your collegiate background, yet I have experiences that rhyme with your perspectives. It is true that individuality is apparent and distinct, yet how similar can several individuals become through transference of thought-forms and empathy of a sort?

It is amazing to me that any few people have ANYTHING in common, not withstanding the fact that the gulf may be wide between two or more people. It is so true that my two best friends in high school were my friends; yet the differences were real also. We three played along despite insecurities and stubbornness in our individual viewpoints. I have had many friends and acquaintences and now most of the friends of my youth have moved on with their lives. It just happens that way.

Thank you for caring, Ron. It is good to know somewhat who you are by your posts. I hope we can continue to communicate here.

You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.

Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
