the mind of a philosopher is formed when he is young.
when we are young we are all philosophers.
"but why mum?" is all we say until we are about 6 or 7 years old.
mum usually breaks of that habit one way or another.
and if she doesn`t do it then the teachers will.
like alan watts, i never felt that most of the answers my mother provided me with really answered the questions i had.
or my teachers.......well, except occasionally when mr. harris was stoned. or because mrs. kennedy actually cared. or because mr. archambeault actually was a geologist who helicoptered into the rockies to find things, instead of just reading shit out of a book and then getting pissy because we couldn`t memorise the facts like they did.
so yeah, the philosopher`s mind is formed out of curiosity that stays fresh each day.
so when i asked my mother where we came from i wasn`t asking for a biology lesson............
