Half a Sandy?
Hi eveyone, I guess when they name a storm (Today's is Athena) you have to pay attention. I will be there for our meeting with anyone that can make it. If it's a smallish group we'll enjoy a less formal discussion and get to know each other better.
Maybe we can redo the topic again for the full group next week or on our next scheduled date of 11-21? (November 21 is the day before Thanksgiving. I'm not sure if that is good or bad for attendance?)
Here's the question to everyone: Do you prefer to redo the topic "What are Passion's Values" on 11-14 nor 11-21? If I get a good response either way that's what we'll do.

Our venue is open and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. Don't forget your "readings" of yourselves and those you know and meet before our meeting as to our human nature. What's your interpretation? Good, bad, both, a blank slate, or something else?
Also, remember this Meetup group is about exploring each other's new ideas (however heretical!) and creating new ideas together regarding morality, politics, and culture, so be prepared to talk about them if you desire.
See you Wednesday!

Regarding readings, we have none at this point because we'll be discussing our own ideas regarding life and future possibilities based on our experience, not other people's speculations made into truth.
In the next week the best "reading" we could do for our first Meetup would be to take a reading of ourselves and all the people we have actual experience with as to human nature. Based on your experiences, not what you have been taught or what the news and entertainment media portray, are you and these others you know "good," "bad," or neutral, as in a "blank slate" upon which the individual is written?
These catagories may seem simplistic, but they are the foundations upon which our ancient, and still active, social systems stand. We'll talk much about these fundamental distinctions at our first Meetup 11-7. Looking forward to meeting all who come!
