Dear Leslie

thanks for that well put from an effective point of view.

I get the feeling some times when a certain point of view is challenged,
and I admit some times I can take rather a radical one, some participants
take it personally.

Many of us seem totally unable to realise that even a spiritual view of
the world is only a view, however if one remains attached to it, it
becomes personal because one has put some investment in it and because of
this we value it. The best models ever devised by man can overnight be
totally disproved.

And all models of the world are only thinking about the universe not the
universe itself.
