My birthday is 8. of August. As numbers 8.8. it brings to my ming four round circle like things of which two pairs are more closely connected. The healthy round forms bring to my mind symbiosis and a model of the world. So it is like one form of my paradise theory. I have not noticed it having influenced my thinking, except that I have come to notice the possibility of such a model and on the other hand my childhood environment maybe saw such a view as part of what I might be like because of my birthday.
Late summer is also a time of warmth at the same time with the need to defend the good things summer brings, the loves in one's life from the coming autumn and winter. So that too may have affected my view on what is the task of thinking, theory and work.

As a child I had the last name Hari, so my name Kaisa Hari bought the associations "keisari" = emperor and "tsaari" = Russian tsar (emperor). So I took it to my task to cultivate some of the good sides that people need to have to be good or at least worthy emperors, but I did not connect that to the emperor of China but to rulers of vast areas in general. At the same time I valued grass roots democracy in the Finnish way and not kingdoms as forms of government, much less empires.)

I did not have some role or ways of behaviour emperor like, not even sometimes. Instead I thought of emperors as persons who arrange things that people in wide areas need, who find solutions to difficult problems on wide areas of the nation and do that via thinking, discussing, understanding the world, cultures, different types of people, how they interact, what they need and how to arrange such, etc. So I thought of the position of an emperor like an ordinary citizen who in some task deserves well such a high position, negotiating about the affairs of the state. But emperor managing to do that more often, solve problems, negotiate, discuss, find solutions, support good causes, know things and workings of the nation and it's neighbours well - kind of like a relative for an ordinary person, taking part in discussion about something because one has often something valuable to offer, worthy of that role and partly because he/she is often around. So I thought that emperor needs support, needs to show his/her skilledness again and again and again.)

(11.11.2018 Some people think that children learn especially about names. I think that I learned about many things in life, but here is what I paid attention to in my name:
My first name Kaisa has the associations
kai saa = maybe allowed
kaikki = all
kassa = the person in shop to whom one pays
aina = always
aina saa = always allowed
kaikki saa = all allowed, or: allowed for all
kartta = map
kaitsea = to herd children somewhat like to herd cattle
aisa, aisoissa = controlled enough
keisari = emperor
About how this affected my life, the most important is the word "saa" = "is allowed" which meant that rules of game had to be always obeyed, and so just about evrything was in principle allowed even though often not in practise. The association "kai" = "maybe" hardened this rule via the need of always checking everything. The shopkeeper association made it needed to estimate the total sum, likewise the associations "all allowed", "all" and "always" and "emperor". "To herd children" was with the shopkeeper a milder version of "emperor", likewise "controlled enough" and "map". In my uopbringing my parents emphasized objective thinking with a picture of the whole very much indeed, likewise the culture, school and my parents' interest in science.
