It almost sounds like a faulty ball bearing on Voyager (at 17 min mark). lol

I always imagined these planetary giants would give us diverse sounds.

Thanks.

Name a school yard play ground game that doesn't divide us and pit us against one another. "Swings"? Okay.


You got it, bro. They basically turn us against ourselves. Unity is not encouraged...


Neither is individual achievement, except in grading and sports. What they teach is conformity. All the desks in formation facing the central authority of the teachers desk. Later changing to a podium, a pulpit, a news desk, a formation, a parade...

I see the desk configurations in smaller more intimate university classrooms as being like a round table format. And Kindergarden classrooms are a mixed bag.

I think "tag" is the nicest schoolyard game that isn't competitive. You're actually running to try and touch somebody. That's kind of sweet in a way. I bet you were good at not getting touched.

Naw, I was too big and slow. 'Tag' was still competitive, singling out one person as the subject. Useful lessons for later on,

picking on and bullying weaker kids. Tag, you're "IT".


An alternative way to look at tag, is that if I am tagged "IT" and find a good hiding spot and you and others were unable to find me, I have shown that I bested you all at the game.

Thats hide and seek, a different play on 'mob' mentality. Usually, tag is played on an open field, there is no hiding, once you're "IT".

Either or, the hunt for or evasion from the "villain" is all against one.

Further: The primary lesson taught by tag is you can't get away, its no fun to be "it" (singled out). Its better to be part of the chase. Same with hide and seek. Its more fun to be hiding, instead of the lone defender.

Those sounds are produced by the enormouss magnetic field generated by Jupiters sheer mass.

Creepy nonetheless.

Neat images. Kindergarten though, is preparation for more controlled environments of 'higher grades'.

Bg difference between private and public schools, too. Even better, home schooling.

Less dogma, politics, and conformity training.

Oh, I was remembering my wins and it was always playing hide and seek. Although tag does show one's prowess, or lack thereof, at speed and dodging. But, does any unification in play or sport have to be associated with a 'mob' mentality? What about a 'team' mentality?

I didn't feel it as 'creepy' but rather 'awe inspiring'.

Singly or in teams, doesn't matter.

They always reminded us, Its just a game. But its not. It teaches us to compete, singly or as a team against each other and later, against whole other cultures and peoples (for conquest).

I felt raw power. If you were there where the voyager probe was, you would be bombarded with lethal doses of Ionizing radiation. But you wouldn't hear or feel a thing.

For me, both, singly and in teams. But even when singly, it was for the entire school's reputation as well as my desire to test myself and reach the goals I set out for myself at that time - athletically speaking.

God forbid we should develop our 'athletics' doing something together that doesn't involve competition.

How about a nice hike?
