VIKTOR FRANKL ~ MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING

~ TLITS-TSITFMITS ~ To Live Is To Suffer – To Survive Is To Find Meaning In The Suffering

~ [S]HWHA-‘W’TLCBWAA-’H’ ~ [S]He Who Has A – “Why” – To Live Can Bear With Almost Any – “How”

~ SWFYPBYHFTTAI ~ Success Will Follow You Precisely Because You Had Forgotten To Think About It

~ NSRIAESCFADR ~ No Situation Repeats Itself And Each Situation Calls For A Different Response

~ NPOECTFYWYHE ~ No Power On Earth Can Take From You What You Have Experienced

~ AOTSIPOAAROTOTS ~ Actualization Of The Self Is Possible Only As A Result Of Transcendence Of The Self

~ TMOLACBINCTB ~ The Meaning Of Life Always Changes But It Never Ceases To Be

~ ACTLTIOMPTOP ~ A Challenge To Live Thoughts Instead Of Merely Putting Them On Paper

~ LAI-YWLFTST-AHAAWTFTAYAATAN ~ Live As If – You Were Living For The Second Time – And Had Acted As Wrongly The First Time As You Are About To Act Now

DAVID BOHM ~ ON DIALOGUE

~IPATC-TWT-THTBATCSIC-STTSITMDAA-RTS-CFAATTO ~ If People Are To Cooperate – To Work Together – They Have To Be Able To Create Something In Common – Something That Takes Shape In Their Mutual Discussions And Actions – Rather Than Something Conveyed From An Authority To The Others

~ IWKOTTTWITSFOC-TWAGTEIISOW-AWAGTMAPS ~ If We Keep On Thinking That The World Is There Solely For Our Convenience – Then We Are Going To Exploit It In Some Other Way – And We Are Going To Make Another Problem Somewhere

~ TDIBAAETTMBW-TITP ~ Thought Defends Its Basic Assumptions Against Evidence That They May Be Wrong – Thought Is The Problem

~ ABNFADWBFPTSIAC-SAGADFA-IAFDC ~ A Basic Notion For A Dialogue Would Be For People To Sit In A Circle – Such A Geometric Arrangement Doesn’t Favor Anybody – It Allows For Direct Communication

~ IP-TDSW-WAL-A-WAA ~ In Principle – The Dialogue Should Work – Without Any Leader – And – Without Any Agenda

~ IMBUTHAFTGTGG-WKAWOIFAW-PWBTLRTDLALOTD ~ It May Be Useful To Have A Facilitator To Get The Group Going – Who Keeps A Watch On It For A While – People Would Begin To Learn Really To Depend Less And Less On The Facilitator

~ TWOSHBOTBTWCFWL-B-MWC ~ The Whole Of Society Has Been Organized To Believe That We Can’t Function Without Leaders – But – Maybe We Can

~ IIITUTADGINATGOSK-WANTTCAH-TIMHAAB ~ It Is Important To Understand That A Dialogue Group Is Not A Therapy Group Of Some Kind – We Are Not Trying To Cure Anybody Here – Though It May Happen As A Byproduct

~ ITDGWANGTDWTDAA-TIC-OWANF-WMHAESWWANOTDA-NCTAC-OPIRRCCIT-IYWTCTAP ~ In The Dialogue Group We Are Not Going To Decide What To Do About Anything – This Is Crucial – Otherwise We Are Not Free – We Must Have An Empty Space Where We Are Not Obliged To Do Anything – Nor Come To Any Conclusions – Our Purpose Is Really To Communicate Coherently In Truth – If You Want To Call That A Purpose

~ PWCTAGWDIAA-NIFACWOP ~ People Will Come To A Group With Different Interests And Assumptions – Negotiating Involves Finding A Common Way Of Proceeding

~ AGDOWNITCTBDTTFON-PAGNRTGITDIWTFHWTCTBAD ~ A Great Deal Of What Nowadays Is Typically Considered To Be Dialogue Tends To Focus On Negotiation – People Are Generally Not Ready To Go Into The Deeper Issues When They First Have What They Consider To Be A Dialogue

~ TPINTEAFDGF-BR-OTLLETMAC ~ The Point Is Not To Establish A Fixed Dialogue Group Forever – But Rather – One That Lasts Long Enough To Make A Change

~ ACIALORAPAI-STWCLT-BIOWIWHAC-WITWS-MSPAV-OIFA -~ A Society Is A Link Of Relationships Among People And Institutions – So That We Can Live Together – But It Only Works If We Have A Culture – Which Implies That We Share – Meaning, Significance, Purpose, And Value – Otherwise It Falls Apart

~ D-FPTRWIOEOMWCTACOJ ~ Dialogue – For People To Realize What Is On Each Other’s Minds Without Coming To Any Conclusions Or Judgments

~ ITCITL-EWOWTCC-YAITGWTS ~ If You Can Influence The Leaders – Either With Or Without Their Conscious Cooperation – You Automatically Influence The Group Which They Sway

~ BPUAOC-O-MANO-TPCSSAWMOGE ~ By Playing Upon An Old Cliche – Or – Manipulating A New One – The Propagandist Can Sometimes Swing A Whole Mass Of Group Emotions

~ TL-WLTATAPC-WDSOIICBMTTTOI ~ The Leaders – Who Lend Their Authority To Any Propaganda Campaign – Will Do So Only If It Can Be Made To Touch Their Own Interests

~ EAAMBCIOTPIIC ~ Events And Activities Must Be Created In Order To Put Ideas Into Circulation

~ TLISTBAUEABTSC ~ The Law Isn’t Supposed To Be About Unspoken Excuses And Behind-The-Scenes Calculations

~ DWYLISF-BWYLIDBWYT-ATIOAPWIF ~ Doing What You Like Is Seldom Freedom – Because What You Like Is Determined By What You Think – And That Is Often A Pattern Which Is Fixed

~ T-‘P’-IIALAYKOPIATTBYT-THTBISSAOIC ~ The – “Problem” – Is Insoluble As Long As You Keep On Producing It All The Time By Your Thought – Thought Has To Be In Some Sense Aware Of Its Consequences

~ TOSITHM-P-P-TCAMSTYCSTROYT-YHTSYI ~ The Point Of Suspension Is To Help Make – Proprioception – Possible – To Create A Mirror So That You Can See The Results Of Your Thought – You Have To See Your Intention

~ ITB-PWTEO-ITSTIOTD-TWWWI-A-ATSTKEO-TBTTEO ~ In The Beginning – People Won’t Trust Each Other – If They See The Importance Of The Dialogue – They Will Work With It – And – As They Start To Know Each Other – They Begin To Trust Each Other

~ TOOADINTAT-O-TWAA-OTEO-R-IITS-O ~ The Object Of A Dialogue Is Not To Analyze Things – Or – To Win An Argument – Or To Exchange Opinions – Rather – It Is To Suspend – Opinions

~ IWCSWAOOOM-TWASACC-EIWDAE ~ If We Can See What All Of Our Opinions Mean – Then We Are Sharing A Common Content – Even If We Don’t Agree Entirely

~ IMTOTTOANRVI-TAAA-WCJSSTAOTM-TEU-NTWHCI ~ It May Turn Out That The Opinions Are Not Really Very Important – They Are All Assumptions – We Can Just Simply Share The Appreciation Of The Meanings –– Truth Emerges Unannounced – Not That We Have Chosen It

~ IWAHDAADT-EPITGTHADC-BWWRTITOPA ~ If We All Have Different Assumptions And Defend Them – Each Person Is Then Going To Have A Different Content – Because We Won’t Really Take In The Other Person’s Assumptions

~ TINPIBPOC-TNRCOR-ISIR-YDNTBP-ISHTPY-TTIPSDAI ~ There Is No Point In Being Persuaded Or Convinced – That’s Not Really Coherent Or Rational – If Something Is Right – You Don’t Need To Be Persuaded – If Somebody Has To Persuade You – Then There Is Probably Some Doubt About It

~ TINRTHTAAITIETIINR-TPSOAAOOAOITIIOTETIMNBR ~ There Is No Reason To Hold To An Assumption If There Is Evidence That It Is Not Right – The Proper Structure Of An Assumption Or Of An Opinion Is That It Is Open To Evidence That It May Not Be Right

~ TDNEFO-IMEFSE-PFAMFMOTTM ~ Truth Does Not Emerge From Opinions – It Must Emerge From Something Else – Perhaps From A More Free Movement Of The Tacit Mind

~ EIOFWP-WWAW-CPIADB-OTATT ~ Even If One Faction Won’t Participate – We Who Are Willing – Can Participate In A Dialogue Between – Our Thought And Their Thought

~ GPHTTA-ATANTT ~ Generally People Hold To Their Assumptions – So They Are Not Thinking Together

~ TINPITDFTPOAAH-WWTBFOHAAAWM-WWCLABTA ~ There Is No Place In The Dialogue For The Principle Of Authority And Hierarchy – We Want To Be Free Of Hierarchy And Authority As We Move – Where We Can Let Anything Be Talked About

~ TPITGPTCTKEOA-AKWTA ~ The Principle Is To Get People To Come To Know Each Other’s Assumptions – And Know What They Are

~ MOOT-IIGF-INI-IOITWC-AIPU-WPIU-ACFP-FF-FS-FN-FB-ASO-WSCPOIWWL-AWMROP-BS-IACFTP ~ Most Of Our Thought – In Its General Form – Is Not Individual – It Originates In The Whole Culture – And It Pervades Us – We Pick It Up – As Children From Parents – From Friends – From School – From Newspapers – From Books – And So On – We Select Certain Parts Of It Which We Like – And We May Reject Other Parts – But Still – It All Comes From That Pool

TWYES-DOHYRI-O-MI ~ The Way You Experience Something – Depends On How You Represent It – Or Misrepresent It

~ NWDSTOAAATNOOO-B-TAA-TWWST-TWWET-A-C-TTTWWTD ~ Normally We Don’t See That Our Assumptions Are Affecting The Nature Of Our Observations – But – The Assumptions Affect – The Way We See Things – The Way We Experience Them – And – Consequently – The Things That We Want To Do

~ WHGTL-S-TOT-TSWIID-WCABATTRIOWO-WCABATTRIPWO ~ We Have Got To Learn – Somehow – To Observe Thought – To See What It Is Doing – Be Attentive To The Results It Produces Within Ourselves – Even – Of How It Affects Perception
