after going through all of this June of this year and being sold a subscription that expires in June of next year, now they cut the backup down to just 1 Gig and are going to even discontinue the service at the end of this year. 

Looks like i will be looking for a better backup service .  With a company that can keep it's commitments.

Well said !   I especially like your saying, "we champion causes as much to express our souls as to change anything" ... for that is how i feel as well.  

Yet to presume that such miniscule personal give-a-fucks, well expressed, do not matter in the grand scheme of things is to presume that our humanity itself does not matter either.  Me thinks they do matter just because they build on each other ... mine on yours, yours on his, his on hers, etc, etc, etc ...

Well my experience as myself has value just to me.  I can not see how it can possibly be otherwise ... for only i can experience it.   Oh sure you can kind of see it as i publish things like selfies,  but you will experience those vicariously as  otherness ... certainly not as yourself. 

I don't think there really is any thingey called "identity" ... rather there is a process of identifying ... of separating that which is that, from that which is not that.  So perhaps i should have said, "Ego is just the process of knowing who you are".  

now let me go read  shinae's ego

My Ethic with Others

You're your own person, and you do what you do, and feel what you feel, and think what you think, and i have nothing to say about that except to dance with what i can hear from it. The parts of that that i don't like i tend to just ignore ... they are otherness to me. The parts of that which resonate over here i try to amplify and use and even perchance reflect back to you so you can feel them outside yourself. I am always wanting that same attitude towards me, coming from you.
