I’m not sure we want anything approaching an absolute democracy. I think we need to give everyone the opportunity to participate, but I actually think the process works better when only a few do. The people who are not interested in participating will self-select to stand on the sidelines and take whatever comes. Not everyone knows, or cares to know, what is going on politically. Let those who aren’t interested in getting involved do something else while those who are passionate dive in. We do this in every other aspect of society, why does politics demand involvement from those who really don’t care?

I am fascinated by the concept of learning. It seems so natural but at the same time mysterious. I was tickled by the graph of performance and stress and particularly by the concept of eustress which I had never heard of before. In many ways we create our own reality, forming mental models and making assumptions about what is happening around us. I call this mental model our intellectual soulscape. I think everyone lives in their own intellectual soulscape which is only partially related to the actual physical landscape around them. When we allow ourselves to see how much of our lives are made up of assumptions and self-supporting paradigms we are breaking through the intellectual soulscape. In my opinion, a good thing.
Thank you so much for sharing that. I was deeply moved. There is such beauty in compassion. And simplicity.
