Notes on life, art, photography and technology, by a Danish dropout bohemian.
When you drink the water, remember the river.
This is collapsing the areas of life into one. Things like "Save the Whales" to the exclusion of almost everything else results in the actual loss of the individual. He goes broke.While East and West seem to emphasize different areas, ignoring or concentrating solely on one area is the road to loss.
This is why the East has lost out to the West. Take scientific achievement alone. The Chinese were first in a lot of things, but not in the most important things, and they never capitalized on them. Sort of like the Borg who can only absorb the knowledge of other civilizations but never come up with anything on their own.
This wouldn't be possible anywhere else. The Chinese are able to take advantage of the fact they all look very much alike.
