Have we become addicted to the game…to the drama of strife and complaint.

We have to strive for something, don’t we?

Do we no longer believe in the idea of growth, development, and worst: of the ideal of the utopia of the Jetsons.

Have we been sometimes blinded by the darkness and sometimes paralyzed by the light?

Alas, it turns out everyman is an island… then “when the stars become dust colored…wither to flee?”

If everyman is an island, a star in his or her own right then where is the meaning of the whole?

Very simple. The health of the individual most of the time depends on the input of the whole on the individual. Therefore the health of the whole has merit.

Sure it is the case, as long as the individuals are blind to their starlight then the whole is irrelevant….and maybe chaos can awaken then.

Philosophy then is: what is

Politics is: what can be

Metaphysics is: both of these, plus what will be

So when there is no problems to solve we are either dead or alive
