Reflection in Satire

Satire is good. Truth is even better.

The way - Jacob Needleman Interview

Savants as Exemplars

How do we know? How do we know that normal is good and abnormal is aberration? Why wouldn't a savant be someone who has been given the gift of focus on one acute area of human capability with others regressed? What are we REALLY capable of?

In light of these thoughts, Stephen Wiltshire provides a fascinating study. Stephen can (re)build Rome in a day (well, 3 days...).

"The point is, that you can’t be too greedy" - Donald Trump

"Greed is good" - Gordon Gecko

"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false
teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies... And in
their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long
ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep." - 2nd Peter, Chapter 2, verses 1 and 3

Relax, then do it...

Relax into the problem.
Then, relax into the solution.
We expect solutions to come in the front door. Sometimes solutions come in by the back door, and the side door; sometimes, even down the chimney.

Robert Fripp
