Closing Statement from greg dahlen

well, I enjoyed hearing about people's different projects. The most useful abstractions I got from the conversation came from Fritzie Reisner, who clarified the difference between formal, academic research and informal home research, but also suggested they might not be so different; and Carolyn mcauley, who made me think about what is an experiment, and what experiments do I, and others, do in our personal lives.

          Jan 23 2014: then are you also a hating person, Lilly? What were the comments when you said all humans should be fed first? What were the comments when you said there should be no borders or flags? I probably feel hate from time to time but it is exhausting to maintain hate for lengthy periods of time.

          Jan 24 2014: well, I suppose there is some love in saying "I love my border and flag"?

          feed the hungry, well, maybe they really disagreed with you, maybe this is what they really think.

          Well, how often do you feel love, lilly, or do you even believe in love?

          Is there anyone who is free from emotional pressure?

          Jan 24 2014: but you don't see any love in the world, lilly? This keyboard I am typing on was not invented and made with love?

          Again, you don't see some love in someone saying "I love my border and I love my flag"? Even though the love also leads to some hate.

          Jan 25 2014: but lilly don't you make an independent decision as to what ideas you will follow and which you won't? Just because your culture presents a value does not mean you adopt it?
