I want to write this book about history.
I want to use quotes:
But there are some quotes from people that aren't famous awesome philosophers but people that live and eat still and have blogs.
I like what Jereme Dean wrote about Idea and perspective. He commented, "Perspective is unique, ideas are not." And go on about how perspective and minutia became important in writing.
But Jereme Dean is a not a famous writer or philosopher and not taken seriously by a community of people who take themselves very seriously.
Also Tao Lin wrote a really good line on his blog, I cannot quote it, because he deleted the blog post. So does that quote really exist or doesn't it, because it is deleted and now exists nowhere. Maybe it is exists on a word document. And Tao Lin isn't taken seriously as a real human being either by people who take themselves seriously.
Bernice who I live with and doesn't have a blog, she doesn't even have myspace one day told me a really good thing about how people get paid more based on the amount of magic they do. Like an engineer gets paid more than the coal minor because in terms of tribal economics and our own the engineer is doing magic and the coal minor is doing a form of hunting.
Which could also apply to professions like teacher and office worker. Reading for a long time was done mainly by priests so people view reading as some form of magic.
What I mean by magic is the manipulation of nature. Those who manipulate nature more get paid more. In our terms, those who are more skilled get paid more. But in tribal terms those who use the most magic, the shamans and the females who did the crafts and cooking had more tribal power.
Most people do not know but females had more power in tribal societies, it wasn't until people had time to sit around and make calenders that they figured out sex made pregnancy. Which came shortly after a society took on agriculture and ownership. The men ran the farms and became more magical than the women, and therefore more powerful. Even though they think it was women who detected the possibility of agriculture.
But that all comes out of a conversation with Bernice at Chili's on some random Monday.
So has anyone ever read a non-fiction book where the author goes, 'One my friend Bill made this great point and I had to add into this about book how teenage suicide became sexy during the Clinton Era?'"
