Ah, so THAT's why my neighbors seem so pleasant.


OK cool.  Daniel your father and I would get along well.  Scheming pleasant ways to get rid of each other.

Thanks for the insightful commentary: it's been a mind opener.  I didn't participate directly in the qualia discussion, but that too is a terrific learning experience.  It's the kinda thing that has kept me hanging out here for nearly three decades.

Fun parting thought: if a person artificially acts pleasant long enough and consistently enough, can that cause one to become an actual pleasant person?
