Boundaries. They are everywhere. Really, look around you. I've been thinking a lot about boundaries lately, and must go back to Lexi's dissertation to refresh myself on some typologies, wide-ranging references, and hypotheses. Then I'll couple with Vickers' Venn Diagram and the systems idea that boundaries are two-faced, constraining and enabling.
Most fascinating in personal and interpersonal life is the way people are with their boundaries, and those of others. Games like the Prisoners Dilemma illustrate the dance of attraction and repulsion, cooperation and competition, and all the manifold ways that people develop a moral life. By that I mean a life that doesn't always put self first, not consumed by lust for fame and fortune, not addicted to ego, but manifests human compassion and loving kindness to all.
