I'm not changing the title. Each diary is new, and I think a set title helps people find a blog - there are so many. "Life" refers to my life, and I doubt if adding "my" would change anything, AND I live in Wyoming.

My "paradigm" should you wish to call it that, is based on an integrated p.o.v. That is, I'm not religious or political, therefore those belief systems have much less influence on what I see around me. I honestly take people as they come: I don't care what religion, political party or social class they belong to. I listen to what others say and observe behavior. I am disappointed if someone professes a moral code, and then behaves to the contrary.  

Each of us has something to say about being human, and being listened to SINCERELY and attentively is the only true equality that we have. We cannot listen sincerely if our beliefs are so narrow and out of touch with reality, that our brains are consumed by the desire to be "right."

My perspective as a scientist is that like all other life on earth we are entirely biological;  we act mostly from an unconscious, but trustworthy, brain that is the result of evolution, just like other mammals. We also have a weak, but clever conscious aspect of the brain we might call "the driver" - it needs trained; that's why all cultures educate their children. Only this aspect can be trained to be rational.

If I think of anything else, I'll let y'all know. Right now my unconscious brain is telling me I'm hungry and thirsty.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    But what do you have to say, being a Wyomingite? Besides the fact that you are hungry and thirsty?

    I'm a Wyoming native too, BTW. Still here. Not going anywhere yet.

      What do I have to say about living in Wyoming? Plenty! I'm a writer and photographer. I'm in love with Wyoming. I moved here 16 years ago at a stressful point in my life. After a few months I started to get worried that I was "running away" from...civilization. Then I discovered that one person's "running away" is another person's "running to." The WOS (wide open spaces) are 1 block away. I disappear with my camera and the dogs. it's HEAVENLY.

    This Idahoan is staying put too. Outnumbered and surrounded- pretty much like the commandos.

    Right many are called, and damn few are chosen.

      Yes, in times like these, being in an out of the way place feels good. I wish that other Americans could accept the perspective: "Don't get your shorts in a knot over nothing."
      Sorry to say, I think a lot of people enjoy being in a frenzy 24/7. Being upset and self-centered has become a career.
