That's what we need, thought-provoking bumper stickers to distract drivers from their cell phone conversations. Of course there were dinosaurs in the past and they are not here in the present. Hasn't anyone watched The Flintstones? What is it, though, that the dinosaurs appeared in, which was their ...

I think the members understood the original question. It is the answer that gives them difficulty. At least none said , "Who is asking the question?" Plants appear in consciousness.

Amazing how many words are said about silence.

It is there before, during, and after the words and neither touched nor described by them.

Shall I go on?
