According to Google, the second definition of Spectrum is "used to classify something, or
suggest that it can be classified, in terms of its position on a scale between two extreme
or opposite points" Examples are "the left or the right of the political spectrum"
a wide range" and "self-help books are covering a broader and broader spectrum"
Collins: A spectrum is a range of a particular type of thing.
Spectrum of People
Recently, I had a chance to observe a skid row environment up close and smelly.
It was dirty and unpleasant. The “residents” or homeless people are a miserable lot!
They live in tents, there are no restrooms in sight.
Later that day, my friend and I interviewed a doctor that worked a few miles away.
While there was a security guard there, it was a very nice environment. The doctor was
an intelligent and charming lady.
In each environment, incidents involving injury to some extent occurred.
One end of the Spectrum
The skid row person, who as not homeless at that moment, was suing the place he lived.
In my opinion, his attorney dreamed the entire case up. The injury did not take place
where it was alleged it had. The incident occurred on public property as recorded by
This was the low spectrum in my opinion. Between the victim and the attorney, they
appeared to want something for nothing and were using the courts to try to extort funds.
I would define that as criminal intent (so far they have received nothing).
On the Other End of the Spectrum
The victim here had hurt herself. She was not asking for money from someone else. She
had personal integrity. It was clear no one was at fault beyond the person herself. This
was a correct resolution.
Any Group has Both Ends of the Spectrum
To take an old example, there were said to have been twelve apostles to Christ.
At one in of the spectrum was a fellow named Judas. On the other end we have Peter.
Now someone else might choose another apostle to represent the top. This was merely
Since no one is exactly the same as anyone else, depending on what points you
consider, every group with have a bottom and every group will a top. They may all be
great Saints or lousy sinners but there is still a spectrum.
Doing Better in Your Life
Life could be considered a spectrum. Normally as a person grows and expands in life,
they could be said to be moving up the spectrum. There are many aspects that will
change. A common example would be a child who is dependent on it parents.
The child grows up and becomes a young adult and becomes self sufficient. Later the
young adult marries and soon has a family to be responsible for.
In my opinion this is moving up the spectrum.
Then at some point, they perhaps they start doing drugs. This would be moving down the
spectrum. Their survival would be lessened by drugs. If they have a spouse and children,
their survival would be lessened severely.
Or if someone commits a serious crime, that would be a rapid plunge down the
spectrum. The person could become a homeless criminal on drugs and just about hit
the bottom of the spectrum.
Those people who once had bright futures, by their own choices, wind up on skid row
homeless. They are not at the bottom of the spectrum. They could be dying in a hospital.
In my opinion anyone can turn their life around and start up the spectrum.
You can Make a New Beginning in Your Life.
Anyone can change and start doing the right things. Anyone can get rid of the negative
influences in their life and become productive.
I'm not saying it is easy, just that it can be done. If you need assistance, contact me.
Helping someone spot what condition(s) and what the solutions are to handle them is
exactly what I do in life.
Improving the conditions of others is my destination and purpose in life.I have no
products that you need to buy to get better. A little true knowledge can go a long way.
I also do not ask that you believe anything!
You are worthy of help as I know you have already helped many others and life probably
Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK!I believe that is true!
