Hello List,

Didn't think Carol and I would raise such a storm - but maybe
understand why.

First had better say that I'm not the type to have strange
sightings or other experiences, being too rooted in hard physics
and looking for 'nuts'n'bolts explanations - having been a
techy, troubleshooter, inspector and instructor, mainly for NATO
stations but some other nations' stuff in Middle East also.

However, have noticed that, where males and females have
effectively equal education (precious few places in the West or
the East) ie, either in primitive societies with no technology,
or progessive places like parts of Scandinavia, generally the
female viewpoint is more balanced, rational and - importantly -
is more heeded. Old males might do a lot of talking (and maybe a
bit of chest-beating) but the real decisions tend to come from
the (elder) women.

Being male _and_ techie my people-skills are crap, and I know
it, so have learned to make up for that by relying heavily on
female 'holistic' advice and tips - which has maybe saved my
skin a few times.

It's fairly evident to me that many, maybe most Western males
can be aggressive or defensive about male 'logic' and 'common-
sense', while women seem to be more tolerant of apparent anomaly
and weirdness - because that's the way the world can appear when
you don't know all the facts. And none of us knows _all_ the
facts.

There's other reasons to respect alternative viewpoints:

in 'Light and Vision' (editors  C.P. Snow, Prof. Henry Margenau,
Prof. Ren=E9 Dubois) we read - "An examination of most of the data
of vision would reveal no examples of what could be accurately
called 'correct' perception";

Anna Wang Roe of Vanderbilt University said - "We think we know
what's out there in the physical world, but it's all interpreted
by our brains. Everything we sense is an illusion to a degree";

and in 'The Collapse of Chaos', the Profs Stewart and Cohen
wrote - "What we see and hear changes our neural circuitry so
that it becomes more able to deal with those features of the
sensory world. There must be a lot out there that we have never
learned to see at all - it's part of the real universe, but we
can't get it into our brains".


Cheers

Ray D
