Phew!  Lot of reading there, Jbee.  I've bookmarked it for later consumption.
I remember you doing this masters some time ago (or perhaps I remember you telling us about it).  What was the result?  What was the title of your thesis?

I was looking into of a thesis in concern of children and nudity, but that had been covered so well, I saw little to add, unless I did a study to add to it. I ended up doing mine on transpersonal energy, which was part of my reason for the trip to India to monk out in alternative therapies.

The result? Got a sheepskin and more credibility. Got educated. Studied many fascinating topics, my idea of fun and grew in many ways...I suppose I justified my existence for a few years.  ;D

Nice that it was fun!  I guess there's little point in doing additional degrees unless you are entirely motivated to do one.  Writing theses is HARD!  I found it so and my wife, who did an MA just after she retired, from a burning desire to establish that she could take elements of her career specialism to greater depth, had a hard time making the thesis.  A friend who did a PhD as a mature student also had a helluva time with the thesis although both wife and friend were driven on by their deep engagement with the topic by the thesis completion stage.  I had to advise both of them to stop fiddling about with ever more finer bits of research to polish their work to a fine patina, as it was killing them and both works were great anyway!  They were both their own worst enemies.  They both graduated with distinctions! :)

It was work. It took time. The senior, who was also head of department was an academic ass. Crossing the t's, dotting eyes was his main concern not content. I finally had a professional clean it up and he was still complaining about sentence structure word choice. I think it had to do with my unorthodox take and topic.  Hazing is not unusual, I've been told from several sources.
