Jan 14 Intelligent people need answers that make sense. S. Hein

I thought of this when I thought about what I might call "unsolved mysteries" - like why Gretchen Helmig never paid me back the 1,000 dollars that I loaned her. I think I know why, but I am not sure. She has never explained. The last time I tried to talk about it with her was over the telephone. Before the days of intenet, and she literally hung up on me.

I also have a lot of unanswered questions about Priscilla. Why she stopped talking to me. Why she started valuing someone else's life more than mine so quickly. There is pain from not knowing the answers to these questions. Dogs and cows, don't ask questions, at least as far as I know. So they are not in pain when they don't get answers that make sense. Maybe it is not fair to say that less intelligent people don't need answers that make sense. Maybe they just are satisfied with answers that don't make sense to someone more intelligent, more aware, more knowledgeable, more skeptical perhaps or, maybe more emotionaly intelligent.
