Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought with Buddies! Seven Theses on Individualism

Seven theses on individualism

1)Some people think if they know themselves deeply they know all humanity.  Others think they are unique and if they know themselves deeply they know only themselves.  I think both are wrong — if you know yourself deeply you know many others but not all.

2)But maybe if you know yourself REALLY DEEPLY you will know more and more people.

3)But there might still be two people x and y who are so different that they will never know each other, and you might be one of them and I might be another.

4)But if you got this far you are probably one of my special buddies!  Hey, buddy!

5)Introverts know about the world by looking inwards and extroverts know about themselves by looking outward, but since what you see when you look in and what you see when you look out are part of a single reality, introverts and extroverts are basically the same.

6)Just because the world is part of a united reality doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some pretty weird places in it!  And not everybody can go everywhere, although everybody can go somewhere, and for all I know there are places nowhere can go.

7)And that’s just the way it is
