"What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet."

Romeo and Juliet, act II

My name is Michael. That name is a label, a symbol that stands for my social identity, but not my essence.

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth [creation].
The named is the mother of ten thousand things…

The mystery of the “Way,” [our essence], can never be explained or named, but we can live it… For the Taoist, nature and spirit interpenetrate. In spirit there is nature and in nature, there is spirit {our essence].

Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, 400BC

Of Course the Predators Ate Him

Fight-Flight is a fear-startle reflex emerging deep in the sensory motor brain, the so called ancient ‘reptilian’ brain. The pursuit of egotistic gratification turned predator, sexual or otherwise, is not fight-flight, rather, patterns of violence embedded early in the formation of the ego or social-emotional self-image, what we generally refer to as ego.

Nipping The Roots Of Violence

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails
And what are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And everything nice… Really?
