    “We” have lost our way. Until we begin to understand who we really are the abstractions will continue to move away from us in the form of abstractions of abstractions .ad nauseam . Make no mistake life begins at conception- the closing of difference. As rational paradigms we, both male and female are difference closed. We express (open difference) to acquire (close difference) This may seem clinical and cold however: take time and think here, we are an aggregate of levers, mechanisms and machines. Technology is the proof of science. The use of it is now in the purview of the state. Also, considering the confusion that exists between ethics and morals people in general take advantage. Ethics is an abstraction of morals and so can be mapped onto morals. However morals can never be mapped onto ethics. Context is of the utmost importance and when we get it wrong we suffer needlessly. Context is a conclusion. Understanding complexity is foremost .
