11:38 AM Is status a natural outgrowth of the construct we call society?  Lawyers want to make partner; those in finance want to become directors and managing directors; professors want tenure; artists and performers want awards – the list is virtually endless.

But was it someone wickedly genius who came up with this system or did it evolve on its own, as the population grew and something was needed to differentiate John from Joe from Josephine?

My instinct says this is a phenomenon too sublime for anyone to deliberately invent, but as soon as I think that I consider the artifice of religion, which rules the lives of practically every person and yet was the construct of a few wicked geniuses.

So who knows what the truth is.
