My Shadow Asks: Quora Questions
These are among the many things my shadow ponders. Whether 'rightly' or 'wrongly' only the Shadow knows...
At this point, my shadow distrusts the Quora platform entirely. When we were invited to take part in the forum to earn pennies for our thoughts, My Shadow believed the forum wanted our input. After several hundred questions we asked, we realized some alterations had been mysteriously made to the questions we asked.
We assumed the legitimate questions we had queried were deemed offensive or not in the spirit of which Quora intended. We, of course questioned the questioners to little avail.
This brings my shadow to one last question for Quora to ponder.
Why do you ask for questions and opinions from real people from all walks of life when you fully intend to alter both question and answer to suit your particular political, philosophical and social justice warrior outlook?
In Maslow's “A Theory of Human Motivation”
Through life, we collect volumes of assumptions and stereotypes learned through education and personal experience. U name it. Assumptions are everywhere around us, in everything we do and say. Who has the time to research every little thing as it happens?
Both assumption and stereotype are survival mechanisms. Survival depends upon past learned assumptions.
Stereotyping fast-tracks the response time
My Shadow Mourns
My shadow longs for the days of the Weekly World to return Bat Boy to this great land who will at last restore harmony and peace, rid the world of nuclear arsenals, stamp out hunger, pestilence, plague, plaque and bureaucrats. Our heart aches to see Bat Boy one more time. We need you Bat Boy!
Golden Rule AKA Ethic of Reciprocity
While studying the history of the Golden Rule it occurred to My Shadow the meaning of Zeros and Ones.
We will attempt to explain:
Somewhere within ideology there exists a mean, a center, connecting point where extremes merge.
Extremes of Zeros and Ones eventually converge to provide a balance to life.
The ideology of the Golden Rule is considered A universal ethical principle, a law of reciprocity. The Golden Rule concept exists in some form in most religious and ethical traditions.
A simple folk rule, A Golden law, easy to remember, easy to apply. A code of conduct which can be applied to interactions between peoples of many cultures with shared history of similar Golden Rule ideologies. Think of the Golden Rule as a "love your neighbor as yourself" sort of sociological survival guide which gives a distinctive advance to cooperative human groups to survive and reproduce.
