Xenophon wrote in The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates: “(…) he [Socrates] would accept of no gratuity from any who desired to confer with him, and said that was the way to discover a noble and generous heart, and that they who take rewards betray a meanness of soul, and sell their own persons (…)” Many years ago, it was wisely thought that teaching for pay was a bad thing. Paid teachers will always be tempted to make what is easy seem to be difficult. I once sought science-fiction stories that taught science. I found that such stories were becoming scarce. My culture didn’t seem to value teaching or learning unless it leads to profits. Both of these reasons are why this science-fiction book is free.  a psych-rhet experiment  (PDF file) updated Jan `1 2015 The Psych_Rhet Experiment ver 1v5

A being from another planet would probably be mechanical, because it is possible to turn off a machine for ten thousand years.  An intelligent electro-mech might have the following viewpoint– xeno-datagathering report PDF file

I don’t know what ‘enlightenment’ means, but these ‘koans’ may have some wisdom in them.  Koans For The Western Mind PDF file  

More Koans For The Western Mind  “We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat less ignorant than it was before he entered it.” Thomas Henry Huxley

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an allegorical tale first printed in 1900. What was apparent to readers then has been obscured by the mists of time and, sad to say, by propaganda. The original book by L. FrankBaum is available for free at http://www.gutenberg.org and worth reading if you either liked the movie or if you like history (especially once you ‘see through’ the allegory). The following (large PDF, many pix) is a guide to the original story and no6ody’s explanation of some of the symbolism.  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz allegorical allusions partly explained (PDF file) updated Jan 1 2015 Seeking the Allegory of Oz with lots of Denzer pix ver1v05
