Yes, Evasius, I would say that you're probably right in that I am a little different from the rest of my family. Yet how would I adjust to that? I
know that I am different from my family. Are there ways that I could cope with the rest of my family with this difference that I have?
Harman, I am more spiritually inclined. When I was younger I had a chronic ear infection, terrible eyesight, allergies, and I was on medication
because my parents thought I had ADHD. Now I'm not on medication, I can see perfect with contacts, I have perfect hearing, and I view the world in
an entirely different way since I can use all of my natural senses. I believe more in spiritual things because I believe there is an alternate plane
of existence that has been guiding me throughout those troubled times when I had all of those problems and I still believe that I am being guided by
this alternate plane of existence. My parents really don't care for that kind of stuff. My Mom is too engrossed with teaching math to care about
religion, my Dad is a scientist so he has to be objectionable, and although he is religious, in that he is Jewish, I don't go to services regularly
with him. My family seems to like to talk about how they think religion is a myth. They also can't conceive of a plane of existence beyond our
current one. They don't really care for much spiritualistic stuff and religious stuff.
Harman, can you tell me what you mean by how you are atypical in the sense for the surroundings in which you grew up in? What do you mean by that?
