    only when people realize that their own mind shapes what they are looking for will the realize what the nature of their own comprehension.

    It's realizing that your very inquiry and 'observance' has created or influenced production and interpretation.

    then, derivatives
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    It's interesting. When we first find an object we like, we think of it in dynamic terms and once the object moves into static field, we soon get tired of it. This may explain Ne in the conscious/subconscious block and why LSE like to experience new things and often impulsively, being a subconscious thing, get themselves into relational problems. Many things must move into static fields, even relations, far too quickly for them and they get tired and want to experience something new. The key and solution would be to try to find a way to associate people with static things. There must be objects a person values so much that they make static...isn't there? Or, is the nature of dynamics such that one never ever wants anything static.

    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Just read the whole thing... so basically there is no bad/good, but just an overall whole? Sounds kind of like yin/yang philosophy. Guess they do incorporate "East Asian philosophy" as they say.

    But one thing I'd like to point out. THE WEST DIDN'T INVENT SOCIONICS. If anything, Pirsig should go argue with the Russians.

    Sounds like very hippy, liberal, feel-good, love-each other euphoria. 'There can be no good/bad, man, you can't judge my opinion, you don't know me mannnn' expanded into a non-drugged up, more formal argument of 'Because we're all made of atoms, we're all living creatures, and should not rate the quality of each other's thoughts but rather appreciate each other for our collective processes.' ............ Pirsig should get bitch-slapped with a dose of reality, imho.
