Example text

Human diversity of thought has two dimensions, individual uniqueness overlaid on specific types of talent. A certain pattern of abilities and perspectives is found repeated in every group. They all need someone who can get things done like hunt, cook, make and fix tools. They need people to bind the group together by mediating disputes, speechifying and leading. They need people to inspire by playing music, lending an element of beauty to crafted objects and inventing stories. They need people who can imagine what is not, think mathematically and remember the many details of the past.

An insidious form of hatred arises from a conscious assumption that people are basically separate from each other. This seemingly obvious and abstract conception of the kind of thing people are deeply affects the character and direction of an individual's personal identity. Once a person envisions themself as being in essence an isolated creature instead of being with others part of something larger, they set forth on a treacherous journey. The temptation to make comparisons between their own worth and that of others begins to look like merely a benign, logical and practical response to reality.

Human beings will only think when they are inspired to do so, not ordered. Each one must decide for themself that their own uniqueness is of value, that they should nurture and play with the thoughts which bubble up inside. Living amongst an openly tolerated diversity of ways of thinking provides the invaluable suggestion to a wide variety of individuals that it would be worthwhile for them to think for themselves, in spite of the fact that their thoughts so often seem to be mundane and insignificant.
