Equivalence of Ideas

First, two political points in international politics:

Then two things I found today in philosophy that make me very happy. In both cases, it's that I found names and philosophers sharing my thoughts, and having written on the topic better than I could. Independent derivation of ideas for the win.

I am both a bit disappointed and happy to find that my ideas are not novel; the best part of that discovery is reading about how others created them differently. With ideas like this, I am worried both by the sterility of not reading widely enough, and the gravity of having read the ideas of others before synthesising my own versions of the ideas. Unavoidable, really.
