      I can't read the word "satisfaction" without thinking of cumulating tension
      in an effort while longing to have this tension coming to an and, and then
      rejoicing of this feeling we were longing to, and then what we were longing
      for, the end of a time of higher tension as what seems the BEST to us
      happens. Feelings of satisfaction are to me of infinitely numerous kind, and
      more or less limited in time, from relief after an intense day at work to
      getting one's society in the black figures after long years of being in
      debt, or having one's children making of you a granddad or mum, a.s.o.

      So I assumed that in typing "So we'll be unsatisfied" you were just
      concentrating on this idea of being imprisoned in unavoidable rituals
      inherent to our chosen ways of living...

      Nowadays, because of the apparition of new kinds and varieties of
      occupations, moving technological context prevents from popularizing
      specialised schools, so employment is based on interviews, and diplomas are
      just a proof of ability of working hard and seriously, and less on special
      formations than before. This leads to enhance the amount of professionnal
      opportunities and so there are more chances for anyone to feel that (s)he
      gets multicompetent and lives several lives in the same time.

      And eventually & anyway this - your very conclusion:
      >
      >So obviously we have to learn to live in the limitations of being
      >human and not God - we have to muddle along as best we can accepting
      >our partial view-point on things -

      (yes, yes, say it again: a process I do describe very well in last e-mail)

        Surely the words of a middle-class white boy....

        I rejoice, though, JL, in your opportunities. Obviously most people
        don't share them.
