  1. my personal foundation is that i learn, this is the fundamental for me, living is learning. If i am learning then the universe has a trajectory, towards a something. from there comes the querry for meaning in the process of learning. great questions! Wendy

  2. I often think of many the same questions, however when I look at a strangers head, I wonder if all these same feelings could be incorporated in that round flesh surrounded by bone. The brain is more amazing than we know. And your poems and philosophy prove that to me. Keep up the good work fellow human.The real question is what happens to all that thought when the heart stops and the brain no longer receives oxygen? Is it only our recorded thoughts that set us apart from a pile of mud?And does the universe really care?I know friends and family care, but for how long? You are a GEM , hopefully there is a place where you go after this life and get all your answers.CHEERS.

  3. Huum – Lots of questions still about work.

    I’m most interested in your answers to 43 and 48. I’m a little sad by 51.

    And my answer to 56 – every day I come across something I describe that way – most of the time that’s good. Like today – I found a list with 61 questions called 50 questions.

    Big hugs to you…
