    Jan 30 2014: The ideas really make you think. It's great brain exercise. It's just too bad our ideas are boxed in by the ruling classes.
    • Feb 1 2014: Wade,

      Our ideas are boxed in by the thoughts/feelings/actions/dreams we choose to cultivate and hold...
      Some choose to think of themselves as boxed in by the ruling classes...
      some choose to think of themselves as artists by the artful classes...
      Some choose to think of themselves as visionaries who can create new ideas...
      Some can even integrate all the classes into a coherent enriching learning experience that produces a much deeper understanding than what results from the sum of the parts...

      We are bound to our ideas while free to conceive of the notions that changes it all... of course some do need to conceive the beneficial ideas that enable them and everyone a better experience... until some learn better ways they be confined in/by/through the other ways. It's actually rather good that this be so... imagine that only the good be allowed to go out and play... the games there would all be good and fun... even enriching learning experiences...
