    You're correct. What's good and not so good depends upon many things. All sorts of things, and would require a lot of discussion. Understanding varies. We'd probably agree on what's good and what's simply a part of being human - as imperfect as a any human is.

      as imperfect as a any human is

      I think Hawkings expresses a great deal of things very well, I like these about imperfection and intelligence:

      “One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn't exist.....Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist”
      “[In the Universe it may be that] Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare. Some would say it has yet to occur on Earth.”
      Stephen Hawking

        Saying I'm addicted to reading and writing is rather safe, I admit. Other addictions remain for others to guess at. I've escaped the addiction to other things that I have a tendency to, both genetically and culturally. I'm connected to my family (who isn't?) and my home.

        I would say that I'm interested in evidence and detection. I like what I heard my son once say (he may have heard it elsewhere), "I have interests, I don't have hobbies - hobbies are expensive."
