Satoru: Are you asserting that fearful or apathetic students are ideal ones?
Tim: I dunno. I just wrote the poem – that doesn't mean I understand it.
Melissa: By inverting this poem, the message seems clear. Ideal students are inquisitive non-conformists, right?
Liao: Why do we need this notion of "ideal"? Is that concept necessary?
Too often our thinking gets in the way of perceiving. Why not look
at others without even considering whether or not the fit some ideal standard?
