Science expressed in a new way...math expressed in a new way...geometry expressed in a new way...and there is no argument about them because they align and work together and only someone who says 1 + 1 = 3 fails in what is right in front of them. I do not mean to thwart you in your efforts, only to show that no matter what you believe you are aware of, there is more that you have no idea about...not through disability but through denying there is more to see.
The first paragraph above references something I have been playing with for a long time and is maybe at an end to such playfulness, but it also pertains to defining what is real and what is not. America is about to have a vote about the next president and the current president has done a wonderful job in showing the world what a rogue can do, but is doing central-oriented things good for the wider world? All depends on whether the wider world likes individuals doing central-oriented things all together. I reckon such introspective assumptions about value and worth means everyone is stuffed, and if that is the way to go? Better to not give a damn about anyone and just do things for the doings sake...
...but maybe those who partake of mushrooms or such likeness could offer a better way to go forward...all because they see things a normal person does not see...and reckon there is a different way forward...firstly with science in its ways and then with art in its ways, then empathy, and then with mortality, and offering that we only live a life time, so what do we leave behind us?
But you don't know what I'm on about here, again, because Dave reads more than is written and you skip most parts of what is written, and this post has been a waste of your time because I really went sideways with what I am talking about, and really want to offer a virtual rose in response to your post.
Please disregard all I have written...here is a virtual-rose to sniff...I get to have 4 hours sleep before I drive to a friend's house and make sure he is awake to take his medication because he has about 2 months left and doesn't care that he should have taken better care of his health. I feel for you Susan that your eyesight is failing...I wish it would get better.
