    It was a nice meet. My writing and view, which could be considered irreverent of the human condition, was nicely subdued by the wonderful depictions of the beauty of the human condition as expressed in Helen's story and Jacquie's poem. Nice work by Ed and Don, too.

      So, if I understand you correctly, then the past (irreverence) is affecting our present day world. But then you use the word suffering as if caused by irreverence. My view says that irreverence is a by product of suffering . Irreverence, such as a lot of comedy, eases the pain of suffering. The unfortunate thing is that it also masks the beauty of the human condition when used; but then so does the suffering.

      IMHO, we become immersed in our day to day emotional responses. Although it addresses the issues at hand, irreverence tends to hijack the inclination to resolve emergent conflict. This creates an uneven platform for the following generation, which challenge will elicit a new round of emotional responses, some of them irreverent. The suffering accompanies each generation in some measure of discontent. There is always a parallel, accepting, non-suffering group. Each group finds relief in comedy, and other more sensuous alternatives. I feel the human condition is ever more complex than ideal, yet ever beautiful at the center, and eternally seeking revelation as it expands.
