As a psycholinguist I spend a lot of time listening to narrative. My psychological models are based on how male brains and female brains communicate with one another, how they are in relationship with each other and themselves. People play rolls they see themselves as characters and they are both writing themselves into a story, there own story.

He sheds tears over this, and those tears of bubbling fire fall into the vast ocean, From those tears the Prince of the Ocean emerges – by them he is sustained. And he hallows the name of the Holy King, agreeing to swallow up all the waters of Creation and absorb them when all the nations gather against the holy people, so that the waters will dry up and they will pass through on dry land.

Negative liberty is freedom from interference by other people. Negative liberty is primarily concerned with freedom from external restraint and contrasts with positive liberty (the possession of the power and resources to fulfill one’s own potential).
