The wisdom of Native Americans knows two kinds of people.
It is the Pirscher (active makers) and the dreamers (visionary event erasers).
It is destined to form a creative unity (4) for both the Pirschers (1) and the Dreamers (2) as soon as the time is fulfilled (3).
“The world is divided into two classes, those who believethe incredible, and those who do the improbable.”

There are two types of wolves (humans).
Pack animals and lone wolves.
- The lonely are either offended or lost.
All these wolves are dangerous:
鈿?the offenders because of their resentment,
鈿?the lost because they lie,
鈿?and the pack animals because they hide behind theothers.
But I imagine a pack of wolves, a pack of outcasts and lost people who have found each other and learned to livetogether.
And then there are the two wolves in me and you
In his 2010 book The Fingerprint of God, the American brain researcher Andrew Newberg explains the history of the two wolves from the point of view of the neurologist:
- Man possesses two brains,an older (selfish) and a newer (peaceful), symbolized here by the evil and the good wolf, which perform different tasks, depending on what is to come 鈥?fight/competition or cooperation.
The selfish “evil wolf” lives in the limbic system, where he feeds on aggression and fear.The peaceful, cooperative wolf lives in the front-loaf,the striatum, and in the anterior cingular cortex, where he lives on empathy,reason, logic and compassion.Since the human brain cannot distinguish between poetry andtruth, between fiction and reality, people feed their evil wolf even when they look at suggestive news about acts of violence, because they too 鈥?as well as hateful ideologies (fundamentalism, authoritarianism,right-wing conservatism, terrorism) and fear-ridden religionsthat worship a cruel, authoritarian and vindictive god 鈥?stimulate the amygdala,which is filled with feelings of Anxiety, guilt, fear and anger are connected and, among other things, have the task of triggering fight-escape reactions.
Then there are the idealists and the nihilists.Examples:
- Idealist: It is a Miracles that I have not yet given up all my ideals, because they seem absurd and unfulfillable.
But I stick to it, despite everything, because I am still the good in man believe .

Then there is the 10-10-80 formula as explained here:
- When asked by a journalist what she had learned from the Holocaust, Susan Sontag (1933-2004) answered in a television interview with a message that was astounding to me:
鈥?10 percent of any population iscruel, no matter what happens,
10 percent are compassionate, regardless of thecircumstances, and
鈥?the remaining 80 percent can be moved in both directions.
