Hear, hear, Amos. I accept your generous and well-intentioned response. Yes, I too long to get back to larking amongst the Elysian Spheres and experiencing peaceful and creative co-existence with other beings. This earthly realm is far too conflict-oriented for my taste. When I first arrived here as a child, I naively expected that everyone here would love everyone else, be harmless, help each other out, etc. It was one hell of a shock to find out soon enough that that was so often not the case. I've been troubled about it ever since. The fact is, I just don't relate well to cruelty, aggression, hyper-competitiveness, and other forms of insanity.

What fascinates me about Chongo is that he accepts the world as it is, takes for granted that he is going to have to deal with all that negativity, and still remains mostly cheerful in spite of it. He even enjoys the ongoing struggle for "survival of the fittest"! I admire his grit. Or his optimism.
