A Better Synthesis

There is nothing wrong with, and much to be gained by, using our mind analytically, but to use it almost exclusively in this way is unbalanced and has a not insignificant responsibility for the perilous state of affairs on our planet.  Though the odds against it happening seem to be mounting, perhaps a more intuitive way of thinking about he world might help us to recognize and reduce in time our overdevelopment of and overdependence on the ever-growing machinery that is supposed to make our lives easier and better.  We are swept along by technological development so that in our urban environment, many of us interact increasingly with electronic devices and less with other human beings.  In addition, our culture is gradually losing our knowledge of and our direct connection with the natural or unprocessed things of the earth.  With a more intuitive way of thinking about our lives could come the realization that our very survival may depend on the other forms of life our present political and economic systems are destroying.  At the least, a better synthesis than we have now between the analytical and the intuitive, in which the intuitive gets equal attention, seems necessary to our longer-term welfare.

By definition, creativity goes to deep issues of psychology and ultimately what it means to be human — areas that science has always had a hard time investigating.  Science tends to do the easiest things first.  It is nothing if not practical.  This fact of scientific life suggests the magnitude of the challenge that investigators face.
Even so, the importance of the subject and the potential richness of the returns make it attractive.  Big risks can produce big rewards.  It is the kind of topic that might flourish in the decades ahead.

Never My Love

You ask me if there’ll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never, my love
(Ah)
Never, my love
You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never, my love
(Ah)
Never, my love
What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life depends
On you?
(On you)
(Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da)
Never, my love
Never, my love
You say you fear I’ll change my mind
That I won’t require you
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
How can you think love will end
When I’ve asked you to spend your whole life
With me?
(With me)
(With me)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, never my love)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, never my love)
