  Just as an aside, I'd like to note that one of the peculiar social
"pathologies" of modern man is that geniuses tend to be loners, reclusive,
antisocial, and of a particular "superioristic" mentality OE become
reclusive, antisocial with manic need to satisfy group action ... but tend
to be limited in the friend department. It seems that pair bonding and
friend making is an aspect of the "median" range of human intelligence
(above 85 or so, and below 115 or so). However, I am not a firm believer
in IQ, since it changes with age and knowledge, and of course how many
times you take the tests.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
