Throughout our lives our experiences and social interactions shape our modes of being and our opinions. For some of us these opinions become rigid, mentally isolated from the flux of being which originally gave them form. This inflexibility will cause conflict to arise in this shared world of ours – but do not fret. It is not difficult to change somebody’s mind. All you need is some patience, a little time and a mad surgeon with some serious blades and a co-operative or sufficiently restrained brain donor. Never give up on people. And if you’re really ambitious you can follow Ghandi’s advice and “be the change”. Change a mind, change a life (or two).
