    To much of a answer (?) with to much personal information for a slight comedy dig

    Notice that - unless I refer to it by name - it does not recognize I'm speaking about it.

    I was afraid you were referring to me. I didn't wish to acknowledge that for the implication of your statement.

    Are we doing a comedy like Dante's inferno? If so then it's perfectly acceptable as a string of text conveying personal information, which was in question, obviously. Otherwise, I'd have chosen not to put up for review.

    To answer a point in your original posting, the disconnection between people is a predominate factor contributing to miscommunication, or maybe misunderstandings. Interdependence required even for the most staunt individualist, whether rugged or business oriented in corporate America. Toxicity, although toxic is not limited to any one particular type, but is rather a product of perceived injustice or one of selfish ambition. I'm sure other factors play into the toxicity, but the stated is a starting point for attached truths.

    Sometimes it just feels good to step away from social settings. To make it clear, I'm doing very well, and have found places between now when I first became homeless, who make the transition between home dweller and land dweller easier and more pleasant than it would be otherwise. It's not a bad life. I prefer it actually, hence the whole individualistic rugged type sensitivities.

    Well, one can try, but again - this is a text only format, so emotions you are experiencing when you are writing it don't come through. Works better in person.
    Great!

    It's sufficient to suggest an attempt, despite the text only format. For example:. Jesus just before being apprehended, as the story goes in the literature, he ridiculed a friend for an attempt to prevent the apprehension. He drew his sword and cut of someone's ear. There were, I guess, about 12 of them (his friends) against a Roman search party in pursuit of Jesus in effort to take him unto custody.

    Jesus and his friends had two swords and against such odds I'm sure it unlikely that any would survive had the ridicule not been utilized by Jesus.

    With that said, and Jesus willingly going, I'm nearly certain the concept of Jesus giving his life to save his friends rings true. Although, text formatted minus the emotion, this articulation of the event likely gives a more practical picture of the meaning behind the reality written about in the bible, namely that Jesus gave his life for his friends.

    An earnest attempt at understanding a string of text is beneficial for an accurate understanding. That's what I was suggesting.
