Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

thanks, kc, i appreciate it.

i don't know either.....

because the farther i go into looking for the 'original kernel', inside myself, there are just onion layers, one after the other.

i sometimes get the feeling i am protected by some invisible 'governor' that adjusts the flow of novelty, so as not to become overwhelmed...

so there is a feeling of not being able to open the sluice gates completely, even if one wanted to.

just enough to irrigate...

the onions...

i know i'm tired by how many meta4's i mix!

fantastic reply, btw, though i'm still puzzling over whether you meant 'innate' or 'inmate' in your second graph-

works either way, a bit hit-or-myth, huh?

LOL!!!!

I love the original kernel stuff!!!.. that was a real good one.. I felt like if you were thinking in my head (as a bororo would say).. Love it.. original kernel.. a linux one I hope :)

I meant innate.. but actually is not the right word.. because it is cultary innate.. not brain-innate that comes from birth... :)

Your wording is the right actually.. some kind of basic cultural kernel.. Like notions of self and/or community,  sapce and boudnary structures. Cateogrization structures and vertical or horizontal structures/hierarchies. Patriarchal, Matriarchal, bilineal ... family units... this kind of stuff... All of it..

And there are always onion rings about these things..and they are there.. and even when you know they are there youc an not avoid thinking in this terms.. they are still your  onions even if you would like  to change some of them for garlic!!! Geeee

Love it.

A pleasure
