Thank you for your acknowledgement to my assembly of words. I enjoyed writing them and each time I author a post like this I think I learn something
more than had I simply read your thread without replying to it.
If I could suggest anything to anyone who visits ATS as lurkers, but have yet to create an account or reply to threads they are interested in, I would
urge them to create themselves an account and become active in the threads that interest them.
Using the ATS format to it’s full extent can really amplify the experience here, leading to knowledge and understanding that may have never been or
will never be realized by not sharing opinions with others who are interested in the same thread, at the same point in time.
Thanks again for your thread and glad I could be a part of it.

Thank you Laurel, I appreciate your words and confidence in me. I do hope the paper results in something others can enjoy and even add more to.
I am really writing it as a hobby, since my school days have passed by, but I want to compose it in a way that can be seen as having effort an
understanding written into it’s words. That can only be done, in my opinion, with a lot of practice and literary understanding - 2 things I don’t
have a ton of yet.
Thanks again for your reply to my post!

Hi Josephus and thank you too, for your reply.
I agree that Love does hold a huge importance to our existence and the choices we make.
You mentioned the ‘Survivor’ contestant’s words, asserting he share’s a quantum entanglement with his loved one. I believe that is true,
without exception - regardless of those who choose to acknowledge it as truth or choose to ignore it totally.
We can obviously understand verbal language and body language of humans with much more depth and understanding than any other life form we come in
This does have it’s down side, I believe. People develop their personalities, based on what they require, using all the different subtleties of
communication. Developing their personalities this way leads to a uniqueness that separates each and everyone of us.
What can be unfortunate for some and advantageous for others can be the incorporation of deceit into their personalities. Honing their skill to find
the most opportune time to deceive others can be consider a wicked practice. Regardless of the wickedness some may see, it is a trait that is used by
nearly every human, at some point or another.
I am reminded of this when reading your post about the ‘Survivor’ show several years ago, where the contestant lied about the death of his
Grandmother in order to gain favor of the other players in the competition. I believe it worked perfectly for him, leaving the competitors upset with
his actions and destroying any trust he had previously developed.
All of the good emotions experienced can be countered with sad emotions. Even the best and worst emotions can be used as tools to create a path of
least resistance, when someone is so determined and willing to disregard any standard of ethics, in order to obtain what they desire most.
I wonder if behavior like this would still exist in a Utopian society?
