The consolation prize you get, instead of a rich and fulfilling life
We all have it… unnoticed, unidentified, undistinguished, sneaking past your conscious awareness, the strings that make you a puppet on a string, robbing you of your life, using it for its own purposes… laughing at you. I can hear the laugh.
The racket. The insidious, ubiquitous racket.
It is a machine… and it is powered by an unfulfilled and unfillable desire, I call The Itch… the itch that cannot be scratched.
The desire for attention, for significance, for winning every transaction, for love, for filling your gaping hole inside.

It seems that the body of a human is a vehicle for two “entities”, the Selfish Gene and the soul.
The Selfish Gene… that is only interested in preserving itself… the genetic material, even if and even while the family, the environment, the world is destroyed.

I cried. I am still crying. Big learning here… even though I don’t know what it is… Hopefully by the end of the article I will.
I just spent a few hours listening to really smart behavioral economists,
At the end, when they thought the microphone was already off, the interviewer and the interviewee said: “we should do this every day, we could get good at it.”
Then I watched the movie Two Popes… cried a lot. Identified with the two Catholic priests… surprised myself with that.

Learning is humbling. Especially humbling is learning about yourself, and learning about your need to change
Your Precious “I”, (whether you believe it or not, whether you know it or not, the precious “I” is in every single person,) and it wants to have and retain the self-image unchanged, the self-image that says you know everything. It wants to keep the self-image where it is superior. Where you are OK.
It is easier to see it on others than on yourself.
Every learning means that you, by necessity, that you didn’t know something.
