Some time back, Gene said: "People always, always, always, do exactly
what makes the most amount of sense to them at the time they do it!!!"

On the one hand it explains everything, and on the other nothing.

And my thought:

Rol, you are very astutue. Yes, it explains everything and it explains
nothing. And I would ask, what is more important, an answer, or a basis
for understanding which could lead to many answers?

When I finally stumbled on and accepted the above as a truth, when I ran
into situations which seemed to make no sense at all the truth caused me
to pause and ask, what am I missing, what point of view haven't I seen,
etc. etc. etc. I seem to have developed a far greater passion for
understaning than for answers. Answers seem to be quite transient, correct
today and absolutely wrong tomorrow. Understanding seems to provide a
basis for longer term appropriate interactions with environments.... it
promotes answers, and it promotes transformed answers when the last ones
are no longer appropriate....

I am enjoying the journey....
