I am going to try to answer these in several ways, but let’s start out straight up, like my eggs and not like the man with a knife tattoo asking for gas money in the Pavillions parking lot on several sequential days. I don’t know what you’re up to, but it’s probably no good and you make me uncomfy.
When was all right in the world, and how can I get there? Winky face.
Paul, thanks for the lofty question.
All being right in the world is something to strive towards and never achieve. Like me getting an A in college calculus, but much more weighty. Sounds discouraging, but it helps drive innovation in both the social and technological senses. We totally live in a world incompatible with the world in “Imagine” by John Lennon. I can bore you with the specifics on that, if prodded. It’s first semester curriculum at UC Berkeley — so is missing class because the bell tower is playing Beatles songs, man.
You can’t get there, but you can pilgrimage in the general direction.

“Imagine” never anticipated the iDevices we have today.
I wonder just what John Lennon would think of all of us iDevice Users of this world?
He’d probably own the lot himself. John Lennon was big on “Imagine no possessions–for those who live south of East Beltway.”
I don’t know how old Paul is, but I can tell you the world went to hell in a handbasket when President Kennedy was assassinated. I’m telling you we never recovered. Has anybody here seen my old friends John and Martin and Bobby…sigh.
Yeah, and when you come right down to it, it is pilgriming in the right direction that makes all right with the world, And, Sheila, yes I remember and the Paul Ashely is referring to just turned 81.
Find joy in acceptance and striving for the next step…what ever that is
