Life begins to feel like early school years. Pressures to conform. Others mainly desire you to go through the motions, as they do. Motions. The motions should mean more.

When a person lifts himself up by putting others down,
keeps himself up by keeping others down,
raises up one to keep another down, or
keeps one up to keep another down;
when a person does any of these things he has long lost
and now hopes only for delay and stasis.

"Give me a child for the first 5 years of his life and he will be mine forever."— Vladimir Lenin "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."— Proverbs 22:6

"The National Government will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life."
"I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

I tire of my praxis. We answer small questions, solving old problems in slightly new ways, same answer just reworked with new technology. This powers cycles of economy, round and round, leaving little left over for non-capital producing praxis. Humanity's march has always been slow, but it needn't be.

I hear people talk about dieting as if it were a complicated topic. There are entire isles dedicated to diet books at local bookstores. Amazon has diet books in the thousands selling their dieting angles as if it required several hundreds of pages to understand and implement. Celebrities and doctors pretend to have found new ways to loose weight "and keep it off". WTF people?

Nathan would sniff canned air. After a few seconds of inhalation he would pass out cold, head smack against his keyboard or a little bounce off carpet, just enough to make his hair dance up and down. He was a great guy. I never understood his motivations, but I knew he was a friend.

Cicero wrote "On Duties" ostensibly to his son as a type of instruction on how to be a quality person. This work has been appreciated far more widely than its dedication would indicate, enough so that it was hand copied for centuries, and now an anonymous individual like myself can easily get Amazon to deliver a dual language copy to my door step in two days. I wonder what Cicero would think about the longevity of his work and the diverse crowd of his new inheritors. I wonder if his son ever read it.

Morning. Development cave is dimly lit. Searching the web. Searching my mind. The old urge to run with a posse, a pack of wolves, surfaces and planes other thoughts level.
