In law trouble

net2-a09a8926.jpg

While browsing the Net, I encountered a kind of board where people put their story or accusation, complaint etc in their life.  People may also dumping their frustration or showing off their successful plot or revenge etc as well.     M m m —–  Then suddenly, I realized that there is one of the life’s heaviest paradox of which I’ve been able to avoid as a single monk. 

While growing up, whether as good boy, bad boy or good girl, bad girl regardless, whether they got any qualification and gained any good social skill OR NOT, almost of all in equal term, they get marry or became a in-law of the husband or wife.   Then naturally, the drama starts between those newly joined members and old families.    Elder brother’s wife may take advantage to be a senior position and bully even steal a things with an excuse of I just borrowed it as in the same family and just forgot to return etc. etc.    The more audacious win.   Even if it was an obvious crime, Police is not very keen to intervene the family matter = giving an impression of free to go.  (If Police try to prosecute, suddenly the witness change etc, because of the pressure from the close ties etc. etc. —— Police knows those entangled emotional situation too well etc. etc. )

You may choose your spouse but you can’t avoid your in-law.    Unlike to get a job, you don’t need any qualification or intelligence to become in-law as there is no test or interview.   Even worse, so-called commonsense may not to be shared by others neither no enforcement.   They can say, that’s who I am, its my right to be me.    So, hell opened. —– And the very hell is where they thrive.   They grab what ever they want and getaway in a midst of chaos.  

For introduction, or a match making party, at least a kind of selection of school or society, still in reality, most of the people find their spouse mostly by chance without knowing any detail of the person let alone its relatives.   And suddenly those people may come to your room with spare key.   Asserting that they have a right to demand and do so as a relatives (even if they are only in-law).

Their logic is, as the declaration of human right says, everybody got the equal right to claim their share of happiness.   Especially among the same family, the happiness and the wealth has to be shared equal.  Therefore your expensive jewelry also belong to me etc.   So, I don’t need to ask you because, it IS mine.   Don’t you understand ?

Everybody got an equal right to get marry to almost anybody yet still, all the trouble might be caused by “who the person IS” which has been almost out of scope when he or she start their relation (they were hot in love and believing nothing else is a matter, don’t interfere us). —– So does, anybody has a freedom to choose own life-style as it is their own business and their right — Then suddenly the floodgate opened as a in-law.   It seems it is a most convenient excuse to an uneducated EX-hooligan to start bullying, make the younger in-law to easiest target.   —– If you see the hi-school  boys, girls, in the town you may understand how such in-law was going to be mass-produced.   —– it’s a trouble isn’t it ?    To have the individual right and the freedom and the peaceful social harmony in the same time seemed to be impossible.   But, that’s what the world is.

Karma – Fate – (3)

This is yet another 8150 story.   On my life, the sign 8150 is regularly appear here and there = nothing special or I would say, they are a kind of road sign, OK to go.  Yet still, it may seen quite odd or even a supernatural phenomenon to others eyes.

In the world, there is a kind of people who proclaims that they ARE the chosen people though, it seems if it was a case they seemed to have far more share of the bad fortune all through the history.  =  It doesn’t seem that the God is anywhere near to their side.   From the eastern view, the idea of a personified God speaks same language and negotiable, sounds too odd, in comparison to the absolute eastern Heaven.   They are more like a children’s bed time story.   Yet still, you are free to believe any story.

Lord Buddha, as the enlightened teacher, he didn’t believe a God kind or after life as they are too irrational, and banned the magic kind of deceptive practice to his followers.  (Its mean, Tantra’s “Magic words”= Dharani is not the Buddhism, neither all sorts of Mahayana fantasies are nothing to do with the original teachings.  (They are the stories borrowed from the Veda = Brahmanism / Hinduism.)

Yet still, the belief of the Dharma and the Karma is in the teachings.   So, where those two seemingly conflicting idea reconcile ? —– In fact, they are the real phenomena and its rules.  They themselves exists like a phenomenon of lightning or thunder, they exists without the imaginary god of lightning or thunder. = Such Gods are nothing more than a children’s story.

So, does it mean, the Dharma and Karma are just the visible phenomena ?  or actual occurrences ? —– the rules  rules behind = invisible.   Those ruler IS the western equivalent of the God, but the Rules or Heaven is almost the abstract, —– we only see its sign.   And in my case, the sign was the number 8150 (and its variation).   When I see it’s there, I feel a kind of approval of me doing it.   Still, to find the address of the seller in China was also 8150 (in fact 518000) frightened me.  (By the way, the mysterious lens I talked about also having that number —– its mean, I was right to speak out)  😀 —– So, what’s all those mean ?  Even though, the Karma is abstract, it IS watching us and ruling our life.  It is not an imaginary existence.  It’s real.   (at least on my life = I was born to have this life while possessing the palm line which is saying the same = So, its benefit is, I don’t get ill or get accident. Except getting old.   😀 — getting old is a nature of the Karma ) —– I wouldn’t boast such as that I was chosen but I’m actuary seeing the Karma / Dharma is with me. —– though, as an honest feeling, it is a bit bothersome = leave me alone.  I want to have a bit more naughty life away from their watchful eyes.     😀  )

Most beautiful Face 2018

The magazine, TC Candler announced the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018 which selected Thylane Blondeau as the top beauty.

And this is yet again Ai Shinozaki = she was listed in there 84th, the bottom of  4 other Japanese. 

(Something distinctive of the Japanese standard of “Beauty” or “Pretty” often reject the big-mouthed face like the western “Gorgeous” face. —– simply Japanese hate talkative = noisy person to be in their close proximity. = We wouldn’t deny their existence though, don’t come close to me = leave me alone, don’t disturb my peace.  In reality, there are lots of talkative active women presenter in the TV = no problem we can just switch off the TV) 

What peculiar the choice of Ai Shinozaki is —– she is not a typical Japanese beauty, far from it, she is rather indistinguishable = you may miss her in the cloud.   But that is the strongest point why she was chosen to be the top of most untold lover of Japanese men.   Thousands, millions of men are the Otaku, loving their 2D character (= the character in the printed comics) hate 3D real existence of women = hence stay alone, never get involved into the relation. 

For most of the western man’s concept, such mind-set couldn’t be understood = without the physical meanings, it would be no use to think about the relation.  But it seems, the love can be a purely an imaginal existence in some cases. 

Many years ago, when I went back Japan to see my mother, she told me that the mother of woman-A came to tell that A will going to get marry.     ? ? ? — A was one of my secondary school classmate.    Why her marriage was anything to do with me ?   To be other than a classmate, nothing else has been happened between us.   We’ve never been a close friend let alone any relationship.    Yet still, in her mind, one-day when I come back from England, then court her hand.  —– can anybody hold this belief for 25 years in a totally isolated mind = no attempt to make any communication, never came to see my mother asking my address and attempt to write a letter.  But just waited as an innocent maiden.  I’m not telling you a horror story, neither bragging or boast funny story.   It was just a simple fact happened many years ago.   So, I’m wondering that in her 70s, how woman-A is thinking her life?  And myself, if it was happened what kind of the life we could have together. But, the Karma kept me woman free and made me live as such.  This is what Karma mean, it is beyond of anybody’s choice.  We can not bend it. 

Like all other instinctive reactions, the love was created in the old cortex of the brain, Amygdala.   When certain visual signal (or other significant signal) hit the Amygdala   ! ! !   Oh, I love it (or him or her) = Love at the first sight.   And it was the instant seclusion of the Love hormone, serotonin, dopamine etc —– with those chemical effects filling all corner of the body = the body was immersed with love.  Finger was filled with tingling sensation, other parts was filled with hot blood etc etc.  Such reaction has the same pattern like when we saw a deadly snake, then our body would be filled with adrenaline and get hi-tension. —–

Funny things about the visual pattern which hit hard the Amygdala.  It seems that the pattern was pre-loaded, but it is hard to trace the origin.   (could be even DNA originated subconscious.) —–  Try to find such pattern,  I collected 50,000 photos of faces and sorting them —– I found the pattern which attract me though, I couldn’t find any relation among them, let alone its origin.   Even funnier was, such pattern creates the soft spot in the mind = it seems this soft spot is the all source of the trouble.   Such soft spot blinded our eyes and override the rational thinking.   (Simply, we often turn the blind eyes to the cause of trouble = then it will come back hard)   Life is hard = So, why not to have a dream on 2D beauty —– they wouldn’t betray you.   😀

Been watched ? ? ?

(This is the back screen of my D850 camera)

When I lived in the north London, on one of the hilltop.  From its window, I could see the horizon (in fact it was the hills of North downs / Rochester and Dover direction) and a New Year’s sunrise.   But now, here from a corner of south London I could only see the sunrise over the roofs.   Warse still, this year, I could only see the sun behind the cloud.  —– So, the first picture of the year was the cloudy sky.  Then I noticed that its number of the photo in the camera was 777/777.  Other than that fatal number of 8150, I’m not fussy the number like 666 or lucky 7 still, to see so many sevens, its reminds me the zincs of the Gurdian God is watching.   It might be a message of an encouragement for the New Year / This Year = since I still need to push the  2 complaints against the Council.    This sign looks very good !

110 Pentax Lens on A7R

OMG, —– I found a EOS 620 body and a tiny Pentax 110 (both of them were broken junk state) for hefty £5 in the odds & ends box of the City Camera Exchange, Strand Shop.  (They got the best junk in London as well as the latest expensive cameras, and if you feel hungly, you can have the best lunch or dinner in the Simpsons, only few steps round a corner.)   😀

EOS body may be used as a display dummy for my (Canon mount) homemade lens, and the tiny 110 Pentax lens, should make a good fun to test it. 

To test this Pentax lens on Sony A7R body was very easy = just mount the tiny lens on an A7R body cap — Infinity focus was happened to be almost straight.  (but there is no Iris as the camera was designed to give an Auto-exposure by Aperture and the Shutter speed combined system.  = So, the lens works as a 24mm F2.8 only lens, and the focus works very well. (If your finger is small enough to pinch its small lens front)   😀

As the lens is rather bright F2.8 = focused depth is quite shallow yet still, the image where focused was very sharp and crisp.   Though, since the lens was designed for 110 Instamatic size, image circle doesn’t cover the 35mm full screen of course.   (and I wouldn’t attempt to make it Retro-focus with a concave lens to spread the image.)

Don’t to be fooled, even if the camera, lens were such small, like a children’s toy,  Pentax seemed to designed its lens with their full force. = image was such crisp = I would say, too prosaic !  The lens showed no chromatic aberration, in fact it got no aberration at all.  (May be in reverse use, lens may work as a pretty good macro lens. —– I’ll test it on future.)

Still, such small lens on the small mirrorless camera is very comfortable and CUTE ! = I wouldn’t complain the dark surroundings.  Its a own character and a part of fun.

Procure a Bribe or Extortion ?

Following this story (extract from the letter to the Leader of the Council) ~~~

 ~ ~ ~ Because of the matter seems to be potentially explosive, I decided to write direct to you.

The matter is a behavior of one of your staff Ms. N * * * * resident officer of  * * * Estate.

This woman started to visit me a year ago.   Since I’m not a British (Japanese / Ex-Journalist), live in this country since 1975 alone, (and now I’m * * years old) she might be worrying about what could happen when I die. So, asking me my emergency contact again and again (more than 5 times while all of my relatives are in Japan therefore no point to repeat the same question if not a cynical joke mocking me “lonely death” ) (You can check her past entry to her tablet or the report to her so-called manager)

~ ~ ~  Yesterday (21st August 2018) she came again and made the same question with a pretext of a tenancy check. And asking me, if I found where to put my Art pieces, and said “Give me some” then started to mention that the fire and safety check would order to dispose my things as a fire hazard or obstruction to fire-escape, as I’m having a lot of half-finished sculptures or the material for those work. (On top of that, as I am a well-known photographer / camera critics, I got many cameras / collection of vintage cameras etc as well. )

Here the serious question is, is it your normal practice the council officer ask the tenant to give away their possession under the threat of “Fire check” while hinting an eviction ?

Isn’t this nothing but an extortion ? Or asking a bribery isn’t it ? ~ ~ ~

(It seemed that the Leader of the Council handed the matter to the Strategic Director of Housing — and from him to the senior (or manager) of above mentioned Ms.N**** )

So the man came to my place to talk about Ms.N’s “Give me” matter though he only managed to say an useless character reference “She is not a kind of woman to say like that.” = Of course she wouldn’t ask him a bribe = He is her boss, not a tenant.  The trouble was this man was a kind of person telling me that the dead room plant was caused by me kept open the window. (and exposed the plant to the outside sub-zero air ! = What an ability this man got to fabricate a story, what an imagination ! = If it was the case, the temperature indicator could have gone down to a single digit and able to make my freezing story far more dramatic. —– While using costly electric heater who need to open the window ! ) 

When I mentioned that the conversation has been sound recorded.  He said it’s not legal to record without a permission.  Yes, same as a security camera we can make a recording in our home unless it was made somebody else’s private moment like in the toilet.   As those council officers visit was a part of their official business, they can not claim a privacy.   Anyway, the officer’s words of Procurement of Bribery is in the public interest.  (Even a criminal evidence) 

And what this man could utter was the same intimidation, the Fire and Safety check against my possessions.   (I’ve been having the same possessions since I moved in here 17 years ago —– they only started to fuss about after Ms.N visited here a year ago = seemingly as a seer pretext of harassment. = And here it was used as a red herring. = The matter is not the safety issue but the Council Staff asking a bribe. )

So, there were few more Emails ~ ~ ~

~ ~ ~ Dear Ms.N * * * *  (22 Aug’)

Another day when you visited ~ ~ ~

Incidentally, about my art-pieces, you asked me “Don’t you sell ?”—– When you made this question, were you aware that those works has been listed on top of the Google’s search list (try such as >> St.Lucia, art figure    or  >> Yoshi, Zappa

Therefore, the value and the price of item may accordingly. So, your peculiar question to me “Give me” —– was this words made with the full knowledge of the situation which I afore said ?   Or were you ignorant to those matter ?

All the best

Yoshi ** * *

~ ~ ~ a mail from Ms.N to me (13 Sept’)

Please note that I find your allegation of asking you to “give me some” highly unacceptable.

I asked you whether you sold any of your pieces because you informed me you have a blog with many followers.

I have at no time asked you for anything what so ever.

I am happy for the council to investigate this matter fully.

~ ~ ~ ~

 ~ ~ ~ ~ to Ms.N * * * *  (14 Sept’)
.
Ho, if it was such “highly” unacceptable, why you didn’t say so when you visited me
and asked my phone number 5:00 Pm, yesterday ?
On that time, you had enough time to think while you waited me to fetch the number. 
You hadn’t been realized that the matter was such serious until you were told by your manager (may be today).
Since, you to say “Give me” was such natural reaction in your mind, you didn’t think about its seriousness at all till today.
I would say it too late for you to start to argue.  See the date of my Email to you = you had over 3 weeks to think.
If it was not true, you could have started the argument at once, couldn’t you ? ? ?
.
Yoshi * * * *
.

—– So, seemingly the battle goes on. (I wonder how they can argue and escape from this situation ? —– But as a matter of fact, the Council may not able to suck a rotten apple because of a resistance from the Trade Union ( = They would say, it is nothing wrong to receive a present as between a good friend = why she has to be singled out ?).   And the council boss may not lose his pension because of this, anyway.)   Further more, even if the fire safety chief ordered me to remove my possession, they wouldn’t take Court action to enforce it.  And neither me needs to follow.  = So, on the surface, the battle may just go on and rotten situation would just carry on = It’s a farce.       

—— I really wonder, isn’t any honest, decent people working in here ?  (Or is this an inherent culture in the south of  Themes ? —– as some cynics say = home-grown Banana Republic where a bribe is the local currency.   And as such, = superficially separated wife and the children as a self-proclaimed victim of a domestic violence,  get another flat at once together with a benefit,  then rented out one of the flat for a good money = every neighbors know it, council staff knows it, still no problem as everybody is a good friend. —– Once I staid such flat for a week. (I learned a lot.) The guy who owns it has yet another flat in the next council as well, with a different ID as a homeless.) 

The fundamental trouble here IS, even if somebody in the council suddenly developed a cancer and died, nothing would change = just other same kind will take over the job and the same situation goes on.  —– made me even more depressed. (That’s why not so many blue sky outside shot appeared in here, either no new sculpture created = other than the tinkered junk.)

1085th Post or yet another 8150

I noticed that on this blog, I published  1085 posts.  And this very  1085th post was that Southwark trouble, which went up to the Ombudsman. —– As a matter of fact, this IS the second time me to deal with Ombudsman.   On the time of the first occasion, the issue was potentially I could send the MP to impeachment.   One local politician who helped me to configure the complaint half the way, suddenly became aware of the grave implication, then dropped off the support while saying Oh, I don’t have time. —– Funnily enough it was the very moment this politician and the Party lost their political fortune.  So, the party lost local election, and that politician lost the seat too and never able to come back.  (It took another ten years for this party to regain the power in Southwark.) 

Why 1085th was so much the matter, you may say. = This IS yet another strange phenomena of 8150 jinx.  It IS a kind of omen and the intervention of the fate (what Buddhists call Karma) which is telling me the significance of THE MATTER.  It could be a warning of a risk or a notice of their support.   Since I received this sign, I’ve been dealing with this current Southwark trouble with utmost heaviest priority and the caution.  So that, while dealing with the matter, I could find the crucial information or the evidences as if it was placed there for me to use.  (So the sound recording of the visitor’s words has been kept.)   In the other hand, if something became too difficult to access, such as Mail Daemon started to say “Couldn’t find the address” = such coincident was in fact a message “Don’t go there”.    Or, other side manage to make own mistake and blow up the scandal ( = such as demonstrated the Hacking and managed to perform the Extortion.)  —– (In the past, I found quite few people who has been implicated, suddenly died, such as Paul Foot etc.= Sound dubious though, as it has happened, it must be the proof of what the person did = the consequence of cause and the effect = So, I’m pretty thrilled, who come next ? —– I’m not playing with Karma, I just watch and analyzing how it works. )

———— There are many strange stories in the following “Related Post” or among the  collection of “8150 Story” in the right column category. —– (In principal, unlike Tantra sect, I don’t believe the super natural phenomena in the Buddhism, yet still, I was said to be borne under the protection of the Fire God (hence I don’t get ill neither meet any accident, so does the 8150 follow me), though, I don’t have a power to make share price up or pretty girl drop her pants ( = how shame = when I made this joke, one of my friend said to me that I was a luckiest man because I’ve been avoiding the worst possible trouble in our life in its first place —– though, Mahayana says, that the trouble itself IS a part of our Life) = power of Zen or Buddhism only works when we have absolutely no mind / no thinking / no intention while doing the work in due in our life.)

平常心(対話から)

これは友人とのメールのやり取りの抜粋です(青字は友人)

ーーー で、かつての人生の思い出、その追憶の駒々はどんな栄光や贅沢よりも、私にとってのかけがいのない宝物なのだ。それが宝物かガラクタかは、ひとりひとりのホンネで決める、というより、決まってしまう事だ。

そんな個人ごとの宝物を死ぬまで保持することがいかに大切かを共感する人々は、決して少なくはない。

この心理をわかってくれるときが来れば嬉しい。そして、先輩が意図していること とは無関係に、このホンネの欲求に先ピンホール写真が寄り添ってくれるから、ありがたい。

ピンホール写真にやすらぎを覚えるのは、私の場合、心が覚えていて、時空を超えて再現したい、あるいは、せめて心の中にだけでも再現し再体験したい愛しき何かへの入り口を感じさせてくれるからだ。

  おたくはものすごい思ぃ入れと追憶の中で生きてて、おそらく禅も同様に思ぃ入れ、思念の形だと考ていると思う。しかし僕の禅には思込みの分は無現にやっている事、そこでの無心が僕にとっての禅であり解脱なのだ。つまり、何か特別な思い方とか観念が禅なのではなく、何の思いも無いのが褝なのだ。

何の思念、知的作意なく発想された事は、実は潜在意識、情念の深層からの呼びかけに外ならない。で、それを黙々と追求していくうちに針金彫刻ARに付いたベス単なんて物が出来上った。これが僕の禅であり自在だ。

同様に何故かボケた映像に引っかかる。待てよ、これどっかで見たぞ。いつだったかは解らない遠い昔、ひよっとしたら夢の中だったかも。---で、ツァィスレンズの向にそれを発見して以来、僕のレンズ行脚が始った。ピンホールはその一駒だ。

        *******

  執着を捨てることを良しとする賢人は古来多かれど、「自分に正直に生きる」「嘘をつかずに生きる」ことではじめて安らぎを得る人も多い。しかし現実には本音をいつわり、偽の自分を生きて幸せを装う程、器用に振る舞えない人のひとりであることをさんざん自覚させられてきた

  正直も否も執着と言った感情どころか、そもそもアタシはあまり自己である意識が無いので思いつくまま 勝手に生きさせていただいております。これ禅で言う自在。

で、自在についてもう少し書くと=これは孔子サマの言う「己れの欲する所に従えども距を超えず」と同様なもの己れ、己れの生きざま、思考、撰択の全てが一致しているなら、つまり己れとして生れたそのもの、つまりルマ、ダルマに沿ったものであるなら、それがー如であり、それが正しい。

  正直であるの無いの云々と考えているお宅はまだ正直の外側をうろうろしているだけで正直になり切っていない。(本当に正直なら、それについて考える事はない)

『俺以外の誰でもない俺は、俺である事を考る必要はない』

だから禅は考えないし(無心)自己である意識の必要も無い(無私)。只生きるだけ。---で、これが自在でありその心を平常心と呼ぶ。

お宅がごちゃごちゃ悩んでいるとしたら、お宅は悩むように生れたのかも知れぬ=それがお宅のカルマであるなら、そう生きるのが正しい

(禅とは冷いもんです 😀___/\___ 

Mug shot (1)

I’m not having any project or mission with my Mag lens still, I’ve been carrying around this lens the most.  Because this one is probably the most typical of my fuzzy homemade lens, together with a good capability of close-up shot (since its used be a magnifier.)  And to explain what and why this lens, often I demonstrate the effect of the lens by taking picture of the person.   Naturally I got a collection of portrait of those people I met in the town.

The closer the subject, the better the image quality, still it keeps fuzziness.  So, where ever I click, the product showed my fingerprint. =  That’s I like. —– When people take picture, the result looks all same.  Since, shoot same subject and use more or less the same camera = inevitably the result became same.  That is not a kind I was born to do.  = If I make something, its got to be totally unique, and nobody ever conceived kind (so, it should come to the top of google list, such as “yoshi Zappa” “Art figure St.lucia” etc ) —– (Why people are eager to sell their name is, nothing other than the name makes the difference of the work.) —– it’s hard to be an artist.

Self — Phenomenology

I found a talking post in the Youtube, a TV presenter introducing and discussing the topics in the new book = what he found the interesting point in the book.   In this time, while referring to a book introducing the Phenomenology, the presenter picked up that a person expose real self when the person made a mistake, havoc or failure. (Phenomenology is a study to observe / analyse “What was happened” in such “Event” —– so, this technique has been adapted to the Sociology, Psychology etc)    This TV program has been talking about such as a popular misunderstanding, misconception, etc, = give a second thought or new idea to the many daily topics and even an introduction to the Zen kind.

So, what interesting in the matter of Self = “Self would be exposed when the person encountered a bad event” = this IS the same Phenomenon, the “Selfless” in the Zen, but viewed from the opposite direction.  We or a person IS living Selfless as the human norm.  But when the peace of norm was broken at the event, we may get into a panic, or get angry etc and “go into the emotional response”.  These responses tend to reflect the personality = “Real Self”  (Broken something may be a financial loss, inconvenience to live without, or a loss of the precious memento, even a crisis to lose the job with its responsibility = in any aspects, it was the big shock to the Ego, Greed, Sense of security, even a matter of own survival.  And as those emotion is often beyond the rational control, the person act from the deep subconscious = it’s exposes hidden “Self”.  People may interested in to know their “Real Self” though, when actually faced such own response in the moment of “The Event” it would surprise, or even annoyed the person.)

Imagine a situation, when a USB cable was broken — some might shout “F***”, other may get upset “What a bad luck, why today, Why me” or blame the self “Why I was so careless to pull the cable” otherwise, even started to laugh “What’s a day, how silly”   Or, just go to the spare parts box which has been kept for such event. —– Certainly, they were the reflection of each personality.  = When usual kind of the signal was going into the brain = because of the signal was just usual, those signals were ignored by the emotional region (in the limbic system) therefore the daily task would be carried out as a routine, almost automatically, without any emotion.  So, it was seen as the Selfless in the Zen teachings. (Nevertheless, even in the “Selfless” state, all the brain is still functioning just as normal (hence all the bodily function too) BUT only without the Emotional reaction. = its mean, without Ego, Greed, Envy, Fear etc = all the psych emanated from the Emotional region = therefore the tactical response, proper repair etc to the breakage will be carried out with cool rational thinking.)

Though, in a context of the human life, strangely or NOT strangely, those “Emotional Person” was seen as a “Lovable person” and the Selfless calm person was seen cold. (Because, the people can relate to those emotional person for helping, listening, advising, even despising and teasing.)  Life is complicated and hard.  😀    —– Which type you want to be ?
