WHAT IS “NORMAL”?

“What is ‘normal’?” people ask about human behavior – sometimes seriously, sometimes as a joke. It’s a good question, but to answer it properly – I mean when the question is serious – one has to think in terms of intelligent design. Thinking in terms of unintelligent evolution leads to no answer which works for everyone. Or if an evolutionist does find such an answer, it is only because his careful observation of a universe which could not have simply evolved forces him to.

In terms of the design paradigm, “normal” – in the way I’d phrase it – means “operating according to factory specifications”. Much of the problem people have with each other is that they don’t know – or sometimes care – that “factory specs” differ from one individual to another and one group of people to another.

Unknowingly for most of my life, and knowingly and systematically for about the last 5-6 years, I’ve been seeking how different people and groups have different “factory specs” and how to explain the differences. I ought to start posting here again about some of the tools I use to explain those differences, and how diagrams such as the above summarize my own “factory specs”. (יוחנן רכב)
