4 billion people in world don't have addresses (est.) per MIT

Good morning, ma mere,
How was your day yesterday? Did you go to symphony, hear music otherwise, or go to one of your book groups?
Both 'The Desiderata' and Stanford philosopher Richard Rorty's talking are also kinds of songs :) as is Jefferson Airplane's 'Surrealistic Pillow." Richard Rorty kind of roars as well. But in the KQED talk -
https://youtu.be/Fx9Pu2ZYcKQ - he speaks of both hope (at 30:30 min. mark) ... "as coming from utopian dreams ... got married to a certain person ... same for a nation ... we dream dreams " - a career, partner and family - and imagination (at 31:50 min. mark), - and I could read World University and School here, as well as a realistic virtual earth.
Rorty also speaks much about freedom (and is quite against religion for good reason here too) ... but I'd like to suggest that secular non-theist Yoga (Angela & Victor inspired too) offers freedom as well ... and re Rorty's thinking? ... a different expression of freedom ... Rorty is a Stanford prof of comparative literature, and a significant philosopher / public intellectual (in 2000 and 2006) here.
Glad to have heard back too from Stanford researcher Helen Blau Ph.D. (who's about 70 yrs old, English, and has a Harvard PhD) - to this email in this blog post:
Thank you for your warm and thoughtful message. John Ramunas is my ex student and postdoc with whom I think you would greatly enjoy talking (cc:d).
So glad you enjoyed my talk and our work.
She gave a stellar talk at Stanford Medicine on telomere extension - which may be related to questions of extending life.
Sometimes I feel disconnected, so I appreciate getting such communications, and positive forms of connecting.
Soup was delicious last night. Hope you have a great day and talk with you soon. On with book and Stanford today ...

Have sometimes wondered too what in "The Desiderata" - http://mwkworks.com/desiderata.html - a "wholesome discipline" means ..
"Take kindly the counsel of the years, ...
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself."
And I can construe this as a bit of daily Yoga exploration - both asana and perhaps as philosophy.
Just listened too to Stanford Philosopher Richard Rorty's talks here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/11/northern-cardinal-doubt-toyota-humanoid.html - and re philosophy too. The first one is with a Dutch interviewer and touches on ecstasy, very unusually in philosophy -
https://youtu.be/bTSdyxKyHrU - and the second one is with a SF Bay Area interviewer - https://youtu.be/Fx9Pu2ZYcKQ (embedded above) - where both interviews are pretty inspiring. Rorty is amazing in a variety of ways, and you might enjoy these Youtube interviews as well, and there's also a label for Rorty here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/Richard%20Rorty. (George A MD, a Lacanian psychiatrist, let me know both about The Desiderata and Rorty's 1979 book "Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_and_the_Mirror_of_Nature. I think Rorty was informed by the '60s too, and in far-reaching ways. And you might find his thinking fascinating in these interviews because of his political insights especially, M.
Am enjoying presently Jefferson Airplane’s Surrealistic Pillow
https://youtu.be/cEY9deRvV2w ... which you might as well.
Some further thoughts about implementing an universal basic income here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/12/palau-stanford-ethics-experiments-in.html :)
Am keeping my fingers crossed ... Started cooking a lentil soup I like this evening. Should be done in 20 minutes. Back to whole foods, and hearty natural soups.
By song, - and getting World University and School for this - I don't mean my blog, but that could contribute to this idea. It's an idiom for a very low price https://idioms.
thefreedictionary.com/buy+ something+for+a+song and https://idioms. thefreedictionary.com/for+a+ song and https://www.wisegeek.com/ what-does-it-mean-to-get- something-for-a-song.htm (but not necessarily an euphemism, I just learned).
Hoping you had a good Saturday! How are you?

Happy Advent season, M, by the way (and all the lovely Xmas song it brings).
