>I never said you thought there were devils in human forms.
That's true; though you make it sound like I claimed you did.
I feel a sudden urge to tell you and everyone else on the
list that I never said you thought it was prudent to ward
off demons with a necklace of garlic cloves.
>You wrote -The Devil is a biological pattern.
>My guess Pirsig would have written is "The Devil" is a biological pattern.
>Thus my joke about the quotation marks going along way.
It was a joke? I didn't realize you were kidding:)
>To my interpretation of Pirsig there is a biological level.
>It is society that thought poorly of "the Devil".
>He is telling society that this "Devil" is the biological
>level. This is what you are saying to me.
>He must think poorly of the biological level because its
>at the biological level.
Is this your caricature of my interpretation?
>No I don't think its necessary to go that far.
>I already explained that I don't think insanity is
>just biologically based but that doesn't mean that
>it can share some biological manifestations.
OK but I'm less interested in what you think about this than
what Pirsig thinks and means.
>Maybe its more of a lack of your imagination Glenn.
>It was a joke Glenn, referring to the famous Nixon quotation
>marks in "i am not a crook".
Shoot. I didn't pick up on that. Nixon. Of course.
>Yes, Glenn I have a personal agenda to slander your name at
>Geez whats a matter with ya-possessed by the Devil or something.
OK, I'll use my imagination and take this as an apology...
and as a compliment too, while I'm at it.
P.S. I changed my mind about your offer to research the etymology
of "acausal". Could you go off and do that and give us a complete
report as soon as possible? Thanks.
