I think the way to describe Stone Turners (or at least what I hope it can become) is to compare it to The Great Debate. TGD is focused on questions that most people are aware of and takes an adversarial approach to answering them.

Stone Turners will hopefully focus on aspects of existence that don't get looked at because they are accepted as givens. An example would be jokes (how do they work, what assumptions lie beneath the surface, what does laughing at one say about me?). Another would be our forward facing eyes. The group image is actually of a New Caledonian Crow using a drinking fountain. What's fascinating about these birds is that they are observed using a range of tools not seen in other crows, even though their raw cognitive abilities aren't different. What they do have is a straighter beak shape and more forward-facing eyes, which is what researchers currently believe might account for the difference. So there's territory to be explored there about our natures and how they might result from such things.

So, by nature of the questions we're asking, I hope Stone Turners will be more exploratory and cooperative, as opposed to adversarial. Maybe it won't lead anywhere. Maybe it will just lead to bullshit. But my experience doing this kind of thing on my own is that questioning what's given has led me to some fruitful inquiries and improved my mindset.

Our Current Western Zeitgeist

I wanted originally to bring it to one issue but I guess we could talk about anything really that has changed in the the public's general mindset.I wanted to talk about LGBT issues. I reckon it started in earnest in the 1960s. Then it started getting noticeably more open about twenty years later. However, even in the 1980s it was common for homosexuals to be shunned or even beaten, by citizens and not by a law. Now there are laws in some places against simply stating your opinion on it.

Thoughts on this Dune Quote?

What do you guys think about the idea being described by Frank Herbert in one of the later Dune novels?"All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted."See More

June 27 - Chat not functioning

Currently the chat, and active member list do not appear to be functioning on any browser, for any users. I have notified Brett, and did not see anything on Ning's site regarding an issue, so I don't know what to expect regarding a resolution, but wanted to push out a general notice. Hopefully they'll get things running again soon. I'll post updates here, if I learn of any. See More
