With DNA, the ability to find out a lot more with a lot less has increased our ability for identification.
When the faith is strong enough, it is sufficient just to be. It's a journey towards simplicity, towards quietness, towards a kind of joy that is not in time. It's a journey that has taken us from primary identification with our body and our psyche, on to an identification with God, and ultimately beyond identification.
There are terrible, terrible memories of September 11th, things that I saw, people that I lost, the devastation, the identification of bodies.

Football spectators appreciate a bit of loyalty, and we're seeing that less and less. There are echelons of football, as in society, where some players are clearly mercenaries.
