Anonymous said…FOTH:What is “normal?” People’s minds function differently from one another--thankfully.That is exactly how my brother, who has a masters degree in clinical psycology, told me many years ago when I asked.People’s minds function along infinite continuums, in a matrix of many dimensions. If not for minds functioning at the extremes we would not have Beethoven, Stephen Hawking, or Mother Teresa. Of course there are some folks we see as bad that we would not have either. If what you define as “normal” is being near the average point on all continuums, we pay a heavy price for normal.Again; thanks to all who served.And thanks to FOTHMike
Mike, I agree with what you're saying there. Unfortunately, I suppose there will always be a tendency amongst societies to try and force conformity to some imaginary “middle ground” which they define as average, typical or “normal,” as so many are quite frankly afraid of things they don’t understand--including thought processes that may not be like their own. It’s a shame.

FrRichard, thank you, and I regret that I did not have the opportunity to thank your brother for his service, and to welcome him home.

Yes, I think they have a lot to learn from each other.
