FOCUSING : THE POWER OF PHILOSOPHY

I've been thinking about that.

First there were 2 powers:
Focusing and Philosophy
-   when the monkeys didn't know about Focusing.

But now there is only one power.

If you started a club at the age of 10,
to study the 2 powers,
at the age of 50 or 100
you would learn about the power
as one power.

I should make it clear that
there were never 2 powers in the first place.

A PHILOSOPHER REPLIES

Dear Ewan

I was very interested in your philosophical musings, and it is very
important to me for my mental life to be one with itself and one also with
my bodily life, which I think is something like what you were saying.

Dear Rob,

Please tell Ewan that it is true that psychology and philosophy were never separate. The trouble is that when two large groups of people never talk to each other, they acquire different habits and there are many steps in between them which they don't know about.

Hello. I hope you're fine.

Sincerely,
Gene
