Prickly or gooey

Question of the Day, July 19, 2011 – Prickly or Gooey People

prickly people separate concepts, religions, people, into differences.
gooey people join concepts, religions, people.
are you more prickly or are you more gooey ?
explain what the advantages of both mean to you,
and what balance of them, that you choose, and why….

I don’t particularly like or agree with the definitions of prickly and gooey offered, both seem rather superficial.

For me, what is important is taking the inquiry to sufficient depth to find commonality that links all, then coming back out in acknowledging the health in diversity.

To me, both prickly and gooey are surface level phenomena, and it seems to me that the vast majority in this group are interested in the multi-dimensional depth below all surface level phenomena.

Perhaps we have our prickly or gooey flavours to the way in which we investigate the depths, and that is just a matter of style – either works. The key seems to me to go into the depths to find that which is common.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see

    Ted – this is a very healthy route.
