I do, however, find discussing individual experience quite useful. This is
what it means to me is quantifiable, whereas this is what it means to
everyone is not.
This would seem to be ultimately the only rule that fits my own life experiences to this point. After all, the only person I can really speak for is myself. And even that is questionable, since sometimes what I thought I thought is often not what I thought at all.
This is exactly the point of view I was attempting to project in the “ACK” thread... only my own take on it so far. Of course you know that I haven’t been yet, but I’ve certainly seen enough to make me know for certain that I want to be there (get to know me and I think you’ll better understand). But I fear I didn’t communicate it well enough, or some didn’t understand what I wrote. If I upset anyone, please know it was not my intention. I hope you understand this.
I feel that Burning Man will be, at least for myself, another one of those experiences that defy description. With the things I’ve been a part of so far that fall into that category, suffice it to say, “It simply is”. And the more it is discussed here, the more I ‘m unsure that I like the term “burner”. It seems increasingly more narrow, at least to me. Does that make sense?
Perhaps I will just stick with Brothers and Sisters...
