I believe that human beings tend to fear what they don't understand. I've been reading your posts for quite some time now. I've done my best not to respond, until now.
I belong to O.U.C.H because I'm hoping that O.U.C.H will help bring understanding and education to human beings around the world that don't already know about Cluster Headaches.
Anthropology is the study of the origin and physical, social and cultural development and behavior of human beings. I had a Professor tell me once, in Anthropology class, that I had to rid myself of all of my preconceived prejudices and my preconceived notions about my morals and ethics, within my culture, so that I could go study the culture of another human species.
It was difficult.
The human species that I went to study believed in killing every 6th baby girl that was born into their tribe. They did this to prevent 'over-population' of their society.
My culture did not believe in killing every 6th baby girl. My culture believed in "being fruitful and multiplying". My culture believed in preserving human Life.
But again, I was simply studying another culture to try and gain an understanding and a knowledge of something different than my culture. I was being educated.
I read your first post to CH.com where you were looking for some understanding and education. This one: Click Here. I noticed that several people that are members of O.U.C.H responded to your post to try and help you gain an understanding.
I'm going to continue my studies of human beings. I find human beings to be extremely interesting. I hope you have a good day.
