Life Lessons

I stumbled on this blog entry by Robin Hansen an economics prof at George Mason University that poses some interesting thoughts:
Food isn't about Nutrition
Clothes aren't about Comfort
Bedrooms aren't about Sleep
Marriage isn't about Romance
Talk isn't about Info
Laughter isn't about Jokes
Charity isn't about Helping
Church isn't about God
Art isn't about Insight
Medicine isn't about Health
Consulting isn't about Advice
School isn't about Learning
Research isn't about Progress
Politics isn't about Policy
I first ran across Robin Hanson over half a decade ago as a leading figure in the transhumanist movement. So... Robin has been out there being spectacular or making a spectacle of himself for a good many years. His writings are always interesting.
