oldschool CxC

The silence on this blog is sad. So sad...

BUT a voice will be heard! :)

The 20th CCHS reunion actually happened. Shocking!
Strange to imagine some of us are almost 40 years old.
Many Culverites had 2-3 kids and were married 5-10 years.

I am behind on the curve there, but it's ok b/c I've never been in a hurry.

My parents split when I was 3, divorced when I was 5, and didn't make marriage look great. My mom & step-Dad seem to have it pretty good though, and have been together 25+ years, but still -- if it takes me another 5 years, it's ok.

I wonder about how many relationships will end in divorce (esp statistically, since this is Los Angeles which averages > 50% marriages in divorce), who from my class has died, who has become super rich, etc etc. I'm not into the gossip per se, but more just curiosity about the human condition. Sometimes I look at humanity like an outsider. They say that's common for left-handed hi-IQ Sagitarius people with ADHD. Sometimes I wonder if all those adjectives mean the same thing?

Evolution -- been playing a lot of SPORE. It's crazy good. Makes me wonder A LOT about 'evolution'. If we look at a room of 100+ human beings, each could have radically different geneology and adaptive traits, some might even have (vestigial) organs and bone structures not found in others (my friend had some of these), etc. But the heritage of Judeo-Christian Western-European monotheism (or some might say duality with devil and deity worship) is that anyone that deviates from an arbitrary 'norm' is deemed a freak, an oddity, someone to be despised and ultimately destroyed.

Other cultures take odd-balls and have them put in high positions, where their 'outcast' nature gives them enormous perspective on their society and culture, and their insight is highly valued.

Sometimes I wonder if the Earth is one of millions/trillions of experiments in planetary life ... that have gone sour?

Or maybe the point is, like the Buddha hinted at, each of us must deal with an illusionary world which is distasteful and troubling, but in letting go of attachment we align with the sublime and begin an energy transformation from inner to outer.
