Life is to promote my neighbors' welfare- -not by competition, but by collaboration and sharing. Human intelligence is the capacity to apply love to the details.

"Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence."
"We know that physics cannot be taught. We will occupy you with techniques, hoping you will catch on to physics in the process."
Helmut Fritsche
Professor of Physics
University of Chicago 1967

by Kent V. Busse:
We experience for ourselves the road traveled by philosophers throughout history. Each, including me, points out a different set of landmarks. If you say "I have never heard of that before," I am doing my job.

I am not the classifier like Aristotle or the enumerator like the Buddha, but I set my plow as deep.

I am not a scholar cataloging and analyzing previous great thinkers. I am a creator who may be analyzed by scholars.

The purpose of the material is the thinking you do between discussions. Learn to see every issue from every viewpoint.

Envision your best future self. Your thoughts become actions that create a new world.

There should never be lineages of Ernstraudian philosophy as there are of Buddhism. Ernstraudian philosophy is not a fully parsed, ordered, classified, and recorded academic system. It is not a destination. It is a journey, a tool for crafting who you are. There is no orthodoxy. If studying the materials has helped you mature your own unique world, you may regard yourself as Ernstraudian.

"We see things not as they are, but as we are."
H M Tomlinson
"I am the one who sees things as they are not--(yet)."

Wait a minute! You're getting ahead of me. I love to give speeches, but that has to wait until I clean up the other items on this list. I've gone back to the beginning articles to make them presentable and consistent. The format is pretty stable now. Speechifying comes later.
