Thanks for this post William.  I am wondering if you might not give me the citation for the Nietzsche quote about the birds and nests. I am doing research on a project “Eye Spy a Storm” in Augmented Reality and the citation is just what I’m looking for.  I would not mind the Stiglitz as well.  Thanks for sharing.  Renate
One of the first things to hit me when Istarted thinking about the topic was the relationship perceivable in theearliest lyric poetry between life and art. Nietzsche nd others derived the artof tragedy from it. Updating a bit I began to think about the (little) I’veread on biolinguistics and the proposed relationship biolinguists find betweenknotting procedures used by birds in creating nests and what we could considerknitting procedures used by humans in creating tools. Today’s *Guardian* (theBritish paper) carries an article by Joseph Stiglitz that expresses hope thatthe deep sociological stages of globalism will be met and worked through bypeople in a variety of disciplines. No easy task....... An economy of mind perhaps. Thanks for yourideas! Best wishes, William
