22. "You think too much for your own good"
Ever had that one laid on you? Remember, critical thinking is always discouraged in the New "Reality". I wish I could disagree with you. My only suggestion is that you study some Zen (Taoism in particular0. Read anything by the late Alan Watts. (actually, check him out via http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlHxz6OkT9M .
Check out the one entitiled "Time" as well.

The film entitled "Man and Nature" is especially appropriate and poi giant considering it was done in 1971). Watts didn't have much hope for the planet 36 years ago but his outlook on it is good. Hang in there.
