    I like the rules, and I strictly adhere to #12, extending it to whatever dogs, squirrels, raccoons, foxes, etc. will let me pet them.

    I’m forcing myself to read Maps of Meaning ATM. Joseph Campbell, if JC was an admitted psychopath. But hey, didn’t all of us as undergrads fantasize about stabbing a fellow student seated in front of us in the neck with a pen?

    Jack: I’ve watched enough YouTubes of the dude to convince me he’s… unhealthy. As for the stabbing bit – I have no trouble with Peterson’s insistence that we’re dark and dangerous. I think he’s right. But qua philosopher/psychologist the guy just does not cut it. I’ll stick with Adam Phillips.
