I sense an assumption here that everyone in the world wants to attain a
higher plain of existence as defined by LO principles. Perhaps this is a
valid assumption that a higher plain of existence is desirable, but I
observe that the LO values are not universal.

I have a nephew who wants to live in relative isolation in the midst of
wilderness -- a quiet life. He learns and is fed by natural surroundings
and a simple life. A library is not his source of information or

I cannot argue with his choices, sometimes I yearn to step out of the rush
for knowledge - to rest along the way.
