oh no no, not my trail to follow. On that route, I go from Jung straight to Joseph Campbell “Power of Myth”, categorize Freud and successors in the modern mythology category, then I switch to the notion of computational ontologies and the broadness of concept linkages possible and back to how human hold multiple contradictory ontologies and somehow manage to communicate with them and how jokes are successful because they depend upon the conflict between contradictory ontologies within humans raised within similar cultural constructs given our media rich society and standardized childhood experiences (loosely broken into ‘generations’ but that’s one of many possible ways to do so)

 Yeah, perhaps I’m not much for psychoanalysis. I mean, there’s Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development, Piagets concrete/abstract, Erikson’s stages (which are lifetime which I remember being shocked as few ever dared do the whole lifetime)….
..and they were useful. But in life, I can’t say I’ve found the notion of any of these particular stages terribly useful. I enjoyed when I’d find some correspondence but I generally treat people the same whatever the age, getting a sense of their humor to know what’s appropriate but it’s very individual as different people have different capabilities of abstraction.
