Have you ever read stuff about 'dependent origination' - it's budhist but not supernatural in any way, just reasoning about how each thing's origination is dependent. I love it - it 'feels' deeply true AND I think it holds water on the reasoning front.

When I think of language, how much it's needed in thought and concept then I remember that the language I use is the gift to me from countless generations. When I think about language and thought it's a gift again best wrapped by oliver sacks in discussing deafness - but how many gifts did he recieve before he could wrap it for me and so many others?

There's not an act or a part of my being that soley lies inside me.

So yeah - I like interconnectedness!!
