Conflict,Collaboration, and the Concealed Mind 
Howard Ross
“It was as if light came where there had beenno light before, the intangible world becamea shining certainty. The horizons of my mindwidened to bright destinies where the racewould still be swift, the battle strong…I showed immediately in many ways that agreat change had taken place in me. Iwanted to learn the name of every object Itouched, and before night I had masteredthirty words. ”
Helen Keller,
“My Religion”

The procedure is actually quite simple. First youarrange things into different groups; of course one pilemay be sufficient, depending upon how much there is todo. If you have to go somewhere else due to lack of facilities, that is the next step. Otherwise you are prettywell set. It is important not to overdo things; that is, it isbetter to do too few things at once, rather than toomany. In the short run, this might not seem important,but complications can easily arise. A mistake can beexpensive as well. After the procedure is completed,one arranges the materials into different groups again.Then they can be put into their appropriate places.Naturally they’ll be used once more and the wholeprocess will have to be repeated, however, that is a partof life.John Medina, PhD
“enables linguisticinterpretation to take place…enablesperceptual interpretation to take place(and)…structures consciousness.”
John R. Searle,
“The Construction of Social Reality” 
We perceive it as exciting or scary(perceptual interpretation)
We create words (“exciting” “scary”) toidentify what we are experiencing(linguistic interpretation)
And those interpretations create amindset that we have about roller coasters (structures of consciousness).Background
What assumptions do we have abouthuman behavior?
We freely choose how we act
We make choices based on preferences
By and large our choices are rational
Preferences are relatively consistent and stable
The outcomes of our choices are mostlycontrollable
People are responsible for the choices theymake, and therefore the outcomes
We see the world as it is
