  1. “…there are patterns of patterns of patterns of patterns.” Glorious. Do you think “Hamlet and the Piraha” in maxadaland is an aspect of Thibault’s thinking? of Vygotsky?

  2. i think so. in fact, whether deliberate or not I suspect most of reality however we process it is involved in these patterns of thinking?

  3. …genetically inherited patterns that adapt to evolutionary needs…culturally dependent…why Eskimos have multiple…highly definitive words for “snow”…
