It is an open question, not the only one, but a question as to how we learn something.

My mother recognized me for my galactic wanderings and philosophy when she was in death throes, and told me she would have difficulty with what I knew. And then told me when I asked if she saw Papa, said he is just waking up. He died decades earlier. When I asked if she saw our David, she flicked her wrist and said I go out too far. I then knew she was listening to the teachers.

Others we have said goodbye to at different altars and bled quietly. No directions are written for parents whose children die. Who wishes to author that book of experience?

July 01,’86. . . quantum, sumus, scimus. . . We are what we know. Knowing, my friend, is different than thinking. To know means you have gone the route, foot by foot.
If we do not understand the wind, we will be caught in the whirlwind.
All times and every time. . . There is no philosophy possible where fear of consequences is a stronger principle than love of truth. . . .john stuart mill’s theory was burned it into my brain and then my heart. .
