A BIG reminder of the value of background knowledge.

Today I started rereading “The Absolute……” from hereon called TATDPI (oh well I guess that is not easier) and in the first Chapter was imagining RP dealing with a lot of information for which he probably does not have any experience. While Alexi provides some explanation, it seems that the whole notion of “water on the brain” and the characteristics that go along with it might need some explaining. More than that though, the whole notion of the “Res” and what it really means even today in some places. There is a great video of current conditions on the res and how a running coach addressed many of the issues-alcoholism, drugs, dropouts, violence, unemployment, poverty. This or parts of it might be a good start.  Any thoughts?
