Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

a second seems like an hour.

My vision of a real humanity is of pure individuals
relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.
They will be loving to each other,

They will be sharing with each other
all their joys and all their blessings,
but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.
- Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)

as well from as having the perspective of imagination -

inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

When truly necessary, violence met with violence -
but never hate responded to with hate.
