"Many of us ... do not think that harmony is the great goal, or unity or peacefulness, [and] actually quite like hard questions for their own sake, and enjoy ... the life of the mind. To the question of how to live, the answer is "by disagreement".

No - he has the terminology wrong. Humans need challenges to overcome and competition in order to survive. Keeps us on our toes, keeps the survival rate up.
Notice how many people retire from the workplace, and within a short time die from lack of challenges in their lives to keep them going.
To the question of how to live, the answer is "by meeting challenges constantly".
On the ohter hand . . . . I guess that is just what he said

The most practical computer tool ever created (according to some :roll: ) is a cut-and-paste function.
Map didn't you already know this notion that theory is not relevant to "your situation", that it won't "help you in your present crisis"?
