Lost & Found Not Confined to Prisons

Can you remember a time when you got lost? What happened? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1515).

Considering the incarcerated, we find fundamentally two inmate approaches and a subset of two inmate modalities branching out from one approach. The two approaches are those incarcerated 1) who have a deep-seated urge to make a difference ("active players") and those 2) who had rather sit aimlessly on their bunk ("the aimless").  The aimless are distinguished from two "active player" subset modalities. These ambitious ones are of two types: 1) those who seek to positively redeem the situation by cultivation of peace through widespread cooperation and enlightenment and 2) those who seek to sensationally torpedo redemption through cultivation of war and rank domination. The latter engage in gang warfare while the former engage in various forms of developmental studies and other positive activities.  The mystery to be resolved concerns the nurture/nature drivers of these two fundamental approaches and crucially of the two "active player" subset modalities.  The resolution of this mystery has implications not only for the incarcerated, but for all inhabitants of planet Earth.
