Check this interview of Dick to Woody, about Woody's own experience with psychoanalysis. Do you find it funny?
Woody is a master of irony and of black humour, which he mixes with ridiculous, pathetic, hilarious situations which usually go through breaking social prejudices. Personally, I really admire how smart he is, and how brilliantly he portrays pure reality and laughs at it, while at the same time he denounces the miseries of human beings in a realistic and funny way...
Of course, it is a matter of taste! Being aware that he has both admirers and distractors, I would like someone to give us an opinion on different matters:
Woody Allen, Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapies, Western religions and believes, prejudices of our times and societies, etc etc etc.
Shall I start?: I believe that anything that helps you to maintain a healthy state of mind and to keep (as much as possible) a clean soul is good, and this "anything" can ben called religion, philosophy of life, psychotherapy, art, culture, and so on. Likewise, any system that goes against the dignity of people, either political, religious, cultural, traditional, is bad.
The problem of energies is growing

Take a look at this interview and to the next part of this same interview, and then, tell me,
are we like yeasts? Shall we end up destroying ourselves, exactly as these micro-organisms do?
Is this related to intelligence? Are we on time to act smartly enough? Let's hope so!!!
