Re: Things You Really Need to Learn

Hi Stephen
Here's something related to your list of things we really need to learn. It's from the mind of Gregory Bateson (don't know if you've heard of this fascinating man):

His thoughts are focused on a different level, but also touch on some of the things (they're not "things", of course) that you mention.

The list is an excerpt from "Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity". This is not intended as criticism, but I find your list more self-evident - other people could also have come up with something similar. This doesn't make it any less useful, of course. Bateson's thoughts are much less obvious, but profound in their implications for how we would live in and relate to our lived environments.

Enjoy - it's brilliantly conceived stuff.
