I tend to think of the Fool as being right on the edge of a cliff — is that a different symbolism?

Would you consider the character of Mike from β€œStranger in a Strange Land” to be a good representation of the archetype of the fool?

Perhaps more towards the beginning of the book. I think he takes on more qualities of the magician later on after he…well…becomes a magician

If I grok it, doesn’t the Fool have a bit of “I know it’s gonna be messy but I’m going to jump in anyway.” ? I think you’re right Ben, if he knew up front he probably would do differently but he just jumps in without any judgement or preconceptions. Let’s experience what happens because that’s what it’s all about. That and watersharing. Didn’t read it in there, thanks for pointing it out! Now I’ll prolly actually finish the book. πŸ™‚
