Recently a lady told me her son's theory as to why Los Alamos seems so screwed up. Goes like this: We have very smart people who live here. Their job is to think. They work at their job of thinking 40 hours or more per week. They think. A lot. So when they aren't at work, they simply stop thinking.
With that in mind, here is a Reading List which will require that you think ----
Irving Rein: Rudy's Red Wagon
Alan Watts: The Wisdom of Insecurity
Lao Tse: The Tao teh Ching
Henry David Thoreau: everything he ever wrote.
While you read this, try to apply what you learn to life in Los Alamos.
