Yes I agree Brain, in fact I would say that all of us seekers are totally unique and independent and naturally resist being herded. In fact I believe that is why we like to visit your weblog. Your Church of the Churchless is a breath of clean fresh air, free and open with no fences. Like an open woods. Ha! Like the 100 Aker Wood in the story book of Winnie the Pooh.

He He He --- That really fits doesn’t it!? Yea Brain, you have a daughter, -- I have 4 daughters. You know about Winnie the Pooh too. --- So perhaps we are all cartoon characters. Let me see. – you would be Rabbit and we always come to your house for a party. You are the brains (Brian –> brain:-) Very good! You are our organizer, our guru, the best speller of all, very decisive, pushy, - -a take charge kind of a guy.

Then let me see, who else fits? Ok, of course we have Tao. He is like Eeyore , the old gray donkey who likes to eat thistles. No wonder he is always so depressed. He is intelligent and next to you the best speller, but he always has a big problem with his tail falling off, and his house falling down. And he wants to be noticed, and above all hates to be bounced by Tigger.

Tigger the tiger. Ha! That's me, that’s ET ! “T - I - Double Guh - er" Tigger is bouncy very active and fun-loving. Hmm. Yes, and I am a tiger in Chinese astrology too. Tigger is all about bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, and fun, fun, fun. He loves to run and bounce and his favorite thing to do is play detective!! That fits too, I am a runner and I have the seva of being the International Tape Detective on the RSSB DAT Team. Wow! How this fits. And I am always getting in over my head like Tigger who says "That's what Tiggers do best!" But then I am always up beat and positive and manage to get out the situation just fine, like Tigger. And Tigger always says "That's Re-dikorus." Changes words around just like me. And I very much love his little song about being the only one:

The wonderful thing about Tiggers,
Is Tiggers are wonderful things.
Their tops are made out of rubber,
Their bottoms are made out of springs.
They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy,
Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!
But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is...
I'm the only one.

Well, enough of my funny analogy. I will leave it to the other visitors to decide who they are-- Piglet, Roo, etc.

Anyway, before my digression started I was thinking that the Universism’s challenge – the herding of cats, can be best handled by having a very loose structure, with few rules, in other words don’t try and heard them at all. Just like you do not herd us here. People come here to learn, to be inspired, to get a breath of fresh air, and as all good teachers know in order to learn it is best accomplished by having plenty of space, lots of interesting stuff to play with and as few rules as possible. That way we just have a party at Rabbit’s house and we all learn and just have fun.

That’s my thoughts, so as Tigger always says;

"T-T-F-N, Ta Ta For Now!",
