Most people have heard of the theory of “Six Degrees of Separation” which refers to the idea that everyone is (on average) approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person on Earth. This theory has been around since 1929.
I think it is close. I have long believed that we are all connected here. But I think every happenstance is also connected. I don’t like to label it “separation.” Rather, I like to use terms that focus on the associations and alliances.
I mean…. we are not merely a pile of fallen brick rubble. No. We, and all the events in our lives, are like a building… standing together. And within that structure are all sorts of comings and goings…..
So I tagged it “The Seven Levels of The Sticky-Gooiness.”
I will just do a quick example from the top of my head.
1. Livia Drusilla, the Political wife of Emperor Augustus, was born on this date in 58 BC. January 30.
2. Then, 1,991 years later….. the first episode of the “Lone Ranger” was broadcast on radio station WXYZ in Detroit, on the very same date.
3. On that same… and very popular TV Show…. the “Lone Ranger” was played by Clayton Moore.
4. Clayton Moore, was born Jack Carlton Moore in Chicago, Illinois. He became a circus acrobat by age 8 and appeared at the Exposition in Chicago in 1934 with a trapeze act.
5. The exact same circus which appeared at the Expo……was also known The Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.
6. The Barnum and Bailey Circus (who, by the way… employed 1,991 people that year)…. was based entirely on the structure and curriculum of the Circus Maximus, which originated in Ancient Rome, in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills.
7. Livia Drusilla, the Political wife of Emperor Augustus, was born in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills.
And there you have it. Full circle. Seven Stages of Goo and Sticky, aka… “The Seven Levels of The Sticky-Gooiness.”
I learned how to do this from watching the recent Presidential Political Debates.
