===So, what is Rialian up to these days..(at the moment, at least?)
===Currently reading some NLP stuff (The site linked is an old one, but has some really good info.
===Good stuff…but always with the caveat that it can be angled a bit too far into the mind of “marketing”…which is a mind that is to be avoided..(in my own way of seeing things…). Hey, Total Quality Management (TQM) has some good ideas and concepts…but it tends to be a failed path.
===Practicioners that get INTO IT tend to become a bit meglomaniacal and turn their tool into a religion….that said, it could be that it is once again a case of the more dysfunctional noting a tool and “taking it over”…much to the detriment of serious work. I have seen it happen enough times to know that this happens in many contexts. (Reiki is a good example of this…but it can also be seen in other, more socially focused endeavors.)
===In other words, there are maps, people that are honorable in the making of maps, people that follow maps, people that worship maps, and folks that make maps to fit their need to have people follow their maps.
===Myself, I like looking at the maps and finding the places between. Landmarks are nice, but all make their own maps in hologram, keeping track of the maps they make and honoring each.
