[1] I believe that we humans live in an inexplicable and subjective milieu of individuals, genetically, necessarily and unalterably attached to one another.  The lines on our maps are arbitrary.  Our patron Saints are Galileo Galilei and   Charles Darwin. Our flags are the genomes of the species.


Addy Pross  [2] gives us sound attitude: “Each individual is part of a nuclear family, which, in turn, is part of an extended family, which is part of a local community, which is part of larger groups of the human organization.

The survival of the community requires far more than the individual. Reproductively speaking, individuals are incomplete. Biologically speaking, our individuality is actually non-existent.” That’s why a new pregnancy catches our attention. That powerful and compulsive news resonates with our fundamental selves.
“Just as importantly, we are also emotionally incomplete. Various psychological elements also connect us to the network. We obsessively need to be with others. We think of ourselves as individuals, but we are really just components of a network.” [Our “lifeboat” is not just many individuals, but an ever-expanding living network.] “The irrepressible force of life leaves no stone unturned in seeking ways to extend the invaluable larger Life [of which we are the stewards]. We obsessively need to be with others. We think we are separate, but we are one. We think of ourselves as individuals, but we are really just components of a network. [2]

Life has a purpose! The purpose is the process. The process is the product! ccr

What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,”

    But how do we find their e-mail addresses? Just a few of them can be seen in your category field.

    I myself continue to have conversations with the talented and impressive Australian young female writer Jennifer Calvert.

    Thanks to you, and to your International Blogging Network, KK, I’ve already discovered her, before her coming public breakthrough. She’s is a real word juggler – or, maybe, rather, a coming Queen of the Global Word Society (GWS).

    If someone wants to send me a mail, here’s my mail address: But I doubt anyone wants to do it. Who can stand a militant atheist and blasphemous anti-theist? It is, I suppose, equivalent to buying a one-way ticket to Hell. 🙂

      My readers: bbnewsab discussed a facade! I’ve been discussing the entire spectrum of human frustrations, yearnings, aspirations, nurturing, literature, music ,visual arts and philosophy; from Molecular biology to elephants to the rover on Mars; both fictional and non-fiction in depth book reviews (he has been known to re-blog MY posts numerous times on his on website!!! We have exchanged views and debated the infinite and the ins explicable on nearly a daily basis! I challenge each of you to be as “Snake-charmer” after my lead! I will give you a money-back guarantee that he is a gentleman and a worthy debater who feeds on idea-challenges! S/ The Grand POO-BAH

    Is emoticon #5 a sand glass (hour glass) or a wine glass?

    If the latter, then I say: Cheers, KK!

    I think you’ve been very lazy, Charles, not posting their email addresses and making us look for them. I will go with BB, with whom I’ve recently exchanged emails. (First time, so it should count.) And I like militant atheists…

    If you want to know Greece from inside, M.L. Kappa’s blog is a good start to follow. Her blog posts from Athens and Greece are full of love. She is always in good spirits although her country is in the middle of an protracted enormous economic crisis. I like her attitude: to see all the possibilities instead of having focus on all the hurdles and difficulties.

    BTW, Greece is a rich country in many ways (if we don’t talk about money). M.L. Kappa taught her blog followers the other day, that there are even alpackas to be seen in Attica, belonging to the surroundings of Athens (but don’t hug them, they spit 🙂 ). It’s almost like reading about the hippos in Colombia; see: .

    Read about the “Greek” alpackas in this wonderful & beautiful post by M-L- Kappa: . And enjoy also all other bounties M.L. Kappa serves her guests in that same blog post.
