for Bryan, who only likes questions which are thought provoking and/or interesting.
1. How do you feel about aleatoricism?
2. As far as we know, we humans are barely specks of dust in this vast universe, yet most of us feel that our lives are important and have purpose or feel depressed when we feel that is lacking. Why do you think that is so?
3. Have you read any books by Fyodor Dostoevsky? Are you a fan? Why or why not?
4. How do you feel about western vs. eastern medicine?
(me: 1. I hate random "music". It does not mimic nature at all. Nature has order. I like the idea of John Cage's pieces that were written using maps of constellations, but I don't recall that I actually liked the music.; 2. The force that creates life in the universe, which some call God, gives (encodes) living things (with) a desire to stay alive. I think every living being feels it. Who knows if it makes any sense?; 3. Yes. Huge fan. I am very interested in how he looked at the world. His philosophy is fascinating.; 4. X-Rays, Sonograms, and blood tests, etc. are great tools for helping to diagnose problems. However, looking at the whole person and everything that is going on instead of looking at just one symptom and treating it without regard to other factors makes much more sense. I think an integration of various methods is the best approach. Look at everything that is going on. Where it is useful and helpful and necessary, use western tests, use western medicine. Where it is useful and helpful and necessary, use eastern approaches to wellness.)
