I just sent this post to a bunch of my friends as I agree with most of what you’re saying here and the way you’ve presented it is awesome.

I think mental health, so-called is a greater danger than illness, in that it's so widespread. We are degrading the environment, including the social network, to a point that we may not be able to eat or even breathe, in tne future, but "what, me worry?" Al Gore and others try to spread the word, but what impact is it having?
Maybe it helps, but you don't have to be bipolar to come to your senses. Jesus was a great leader to say the least, and what he did was fast for forty days and forty nights; native Americans fast on vision quests for four. Mohammed instituted Ramadan for the specific purpose of inducing empathy among his followers. The Catholics have Lent.
In precivilized times, I think nobody had to deliberately fast and pray. Nature sent droughts and winters--some months used to be called "starving moons". And in those days there was no job security and nobody was insulated from uncertainty or the need for sudden decisions.
