A few months back I expressed my views on the level debate. It was and still is my assertion that as children we are at level three ( If three levels exist)and it is the process of aging that regresses us. Richard admitted that he saw my point. I believe that was how he put it. Be that as it may, I have considered this line of thought further and believe I was wrong. Possibly if any levels can exist their are only two. I did a two and half hour interview the other day for a news paper. The main topic will be the web site. The editor and I discussed this idea of levels and how what I present allows people to access the thought processes that they used as children. And the value of such research and entertainment. The fellow took allot of notes and I saw his eyes well up a couple of times as I ran my psychological dog and pony show past him. ( This is the typical response when I discuss this with people especially when they have children) I do this intentionally to elicit the response. It is the response of sorrow of having lost what is most precious and the possibility that what was lost can be easily found.
