    Ours is characteristically the kind of if-it-isn't-this-it-has-to-be-that, dichotomized, either/or thinking that philosophers from earlier times have cautioned can lead to a simplistic misreading of reality. And, indeed, psychologists today have discovered it is the mark of a lower or less psychologically evolved stage of cognitive and emotional development. - Riane Eisler

    "I was afraid of this," he murmured, trying to stay out of purple prose territory.

    ETA: Wait a minute! How is this in "AW Meet and Greet?" I musta pushed a wrong button somewhere.

    Can a Mode move this to AW Roundtable, where I (really and truly) intended to post this?
    Ello.

    When I dissect brains, I like to have options.



    But seriously. Isn't this why we "media" in the first place? So that we can experience inside ourselves what it's like to *i-dunno-yadda* in real life? So now we have the science to see it.
