in my fractal transformation from psychotherapist/academic to programmer ... beginning about age 42, in 1985 ... from early Berkeley BMUG meetings, to starting my first company, Technical Document Design ... to Cricket Software, to IDD, to Emerald City, to Adobe, to BHP Australia, to WildTangent ...

i have seen every type of person, worked with humble geniuses, and loud divas, and, all i can say is that ... to my old man's one good eye, at present ... they all look like ... people ... in the sense that their essential humanity eclipses the outer styles, and personae.

imho, parenting, schooling, socialization, modulo the flavors/timbre of the times ... attempts to pour our somewhat malleable social self into certain common behavioral/experiential molds, but, then, oh glory !, our intrinsic nature, our visceral primate core, struggle to fit in the mold, or, in the case of people like myself, perhaps like you, to dynamite it, and transit morbio inferiore [1] to another shell !

but, i am not saying that any of this is virtuous WTF | :WTF:

[1] morbio inferiore an actual valley in Switzerland which, because of the mountains, is always in shadow. in Hermann Hesse's novels, "The Journey to the East," and "The Glass Bead Game," a metaphor for the spiritual darkness that is a part of personal transformation.
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
