  1. Thanks Andrea Andrews Cooper had a big impact on my life. I think The Amsterdam News is no longer in business.
  2. http://amsterdamnews.com/news/2019/oct/31/joyful-launch-party-following-her-fathers-footstep/ @Troydo you have the book "“Following in Her Father’s Footsteps,”
  3. Plus I am less interested in a kind of back and forth argument. In that way perhaps I'm more closed.
  4. Yes but I am rarely impulsive. However most I have met Aries seem compelled to action. I had a variation on that. I was having a cup of tea at the Brooklyn Moon Cafe sometime in the 90's I had thought why do you think you are always right. It occurred to me that I never thought I was wrong until events demonstrated the fallacy of that idea. So now I try to consider that I could be wrong even when I am certain that I am right Part of my interests is that I like to know stuff including people and myself.
  5. Would you say the same about Pioneer?
  6. How is my following your orders, proof of my intelligence. Plus why do you think I care about your opinion of me.
  7. I have studied Astrology and Tarot, but I have also studied logic. I also have a rule I don't argue with people who can't think abstractly or who lack empathy. @Pioneer1 I have stated what made me feel free and you are attempting to negate my statement. In this and other comments you lack a sense of proportion, or you seem oblivious as to how your words or actions would effect someone. Finally I can respond or not respond how I choose. Your demands and puerile attempts to psychologically or emotionally coerce me are laughable. You can not conceive or even entertain the possibility that I may know more than you about anything.
  8. Causality is magical for the primitive, whereas for the modern it rational. That being said my belief system is more aligned with pre technological world view. So even though I have been culturally educated\endoctrinated as a modern. The central place in my belief system is occupied by sympathetic magic.
  9. Yet it does appear that I knew how you would respond. Yet it took you two days to arrive at the same conclusion. You have to see for yourself. Yes and your statement shows you had already made up your mind. Therefore you have preempted any possible exchange of ideas. This is not a new dynamic however my response or lack thereof is new.
  10. Then it doesn't matter whether I respond. What you fail to realise is that my response was in line with this comment before you made it.
  11. @Troy that's a fairly close description of my process. I think abstractly and I also think about the best way to comunicate based on the setting. However in the past two years I realise that I don't communicate all the details that a casual acquaintance might need. I also like to be parsimonious in my communication. Pioneer appears either unable or unwilling to understand a point of view. I heard a quote most communication is either manipulation or indoctrination I am not interested in being the recipient of either tactic. Sometimes a person won't understand and sometimes they don't want to understand. I have no bets in that game. you may be projecting here Troy. The only reason I ask a question is to understand the miscommunication. I have little to no need for agreement or consensus. Slowly I am starting to see my own beliefs and drivers. I have no interest in arguing, and little in communication.
