Dear Chris,


No.. my emphasis is that all three favour object thinking, 'left brained' to use a 'lite' term. I note that here and later your emphasis is on the fundamentalist-psychosis link. Ok. Lets discuss this.

I do realise that the linking of fundamentalism with psychosis will generate 'tension' but it is a fact that both mental states share the same basic characteristics which are also characteristics of child-mindedness.

Perhaps it is the playfulness of fundamentalism that can attract the depressed/aimless.


Thanks for your response. I think I understand better what you were saying. :-)

However, 'left-brained' children and psychotics? "playfulness" of fundamentalism? I think we inhabit different planets.

Take care,


P. S. If there are any children in your neighborhood, keep a close watch on your chickens. ;-)
