      Thanks, Mary.

      Yes, I also feel sometimes that doing philosophy and contributing to Existlist can be a comforting retreat from the difficulties of everyday life and the disharmony in the world.

What has me presently interested in Bohm's unpopular tilting at assumptions about thought is that although he takes his cue from quantum non-locality, he fully expects that creativity and imagination of the artistic kind will begin transforming our system of thought. In Quine's appropriation of Neurath's boat, he reinforces how daunting a task is epistemology. I realize that I change attitude or position as inexplicably as an electron.As much as I'd hate to conclude this, it is perhaps merely indulgence and distraction from the horrors in this world.
