"the greatest disaster of mankind is the endowment of the power of reflection; that is, searching for the significance of life, the meaning of what is known about himself and the capability of reflection as a thinking self"
--Yang-Eun Chung, Professor of Psychology at Seoul National University
When I read this the first time, I couldn't believe my eyes. So, is the tragedy of men and women the ability to be self aware?
Obviously this it tied to an earlier post of mine (Is this incoherent?) but I also believe there may be some connection between this and Robin's point about "Childhood".
