  •  Actually there's great value (13+ / 0-)

    To be had in understanding how fundamental "realities" about human consciousness do in fact change over time...and these examples presented in this diary illustrate how understandings about something as basic as what constitutes a person vs. property are not in fact universals at all.

    You may not see any value in it personally, but that doesn't mean that other people, with an eye toward understanding the way human beings make the conditions of their existence meaningful (and to some degree real) over time and in different places.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
