An explanation of survival and success?

Everyone is required to read the sacred texts. Everyone. The language is based on a three (or two) consonant root system. And the texts are written in a script that only uses consonants. 

Discussion of meanings is encouraged and the discussions too are recorded and scholars read those too. So an embedded way of thinking and perceiving for everyone is general literacy and analysis of possibly encoded meaning – does PC mean PeaCe or Politically Correct or aPaCe or … might WLL mean WeLL or WiLL or WaLL or … 

What is the text saying about how to act towards each other today, here.

And is a mind/brain trained in an oral culture, adept in remembering, does that mind differ from a mind/brain trained to read, to believe the written text?  What kind of values and skills develop?

Keeping the sabbath

Well kept, shabbat is an instance of what a tikkun'd world would be.

Support us - text $10

Social and political participation is horizontal and brief - +1, thumb up, sign a petition, text $10 … - are today's ways of helping rise all boats. Counting how many likes, how much money donated, … depersonalizes, turns participation into a counting contest … The interface between caring and doing is not who, but how much.
