220px-William_James_b1842cWilliam James, the “grandfather” of American psychology, once said: “We add both to the subject and to the predicate part of reality” and “[that] enhance[s] the universe’s total value.”  What does this mean?  To me, this simply means that the universe enriches itself through self-awareness.  Too grand?  Too mystical?  Too anthropomorphic?  I don’t think so.  Not grand enough!  Not mystical enough!  Not anthropomorphic enough!
