Rich Doyle, a friend and mentor, helped me realize several things: Scholasticism is a place I don’t want to be. There is infinite value in the ineffability of my Being, which I had heretofore characterized as my irrationality. That breaking the semantic barrier is a complex and necessary endeavor but that it will be difficult for others to see. That Feyerabend has been grossly misunderstood for no apparent reason other than an investment in scholasticism. That we need radical transformation of the outdated industrial model of education. And that laughter is a necessary tonic to the vicissitudes of life in a market-prioritizing paradigm.
