Re: Fear

Does fear come from the assumption that there is a "someone" who can lose something? Not necessarily. "Fear" is just a hard-wired emotion, not something created or done by anyone. Fear is just a handy thing for a biological being to have when it needs to feel motivated to protect itself... naturall...

Ahhh, you guys are very amazing. [ok] And while I can appreciate the perspective of those who don't like Christmas, my very first response was to explain to my friend that Christmas could also be seen and experienced as other more pleasant things, not just the bad stuff. Yes, we can arbitrarily give...

I really like how all these pictures don't have any "apparent" people. ... was that intentional? :-k Christmas, hmmm... that's an interesting concept... lots of beliefs and expectations attached to it... :roll: and you notice how we always put "merry" in front of it... as if that's the only "package...

Re: Self Protection

If engineers were confined to the math used two thousand years ago...you wouldn't feel so safe when in those tall buildings. The pyramids of 2000 years ago (some say "5000" ... some say "12,000") are still standing, and are still a mystery to our current engineers. Even with our "modern" knowledge,...

Plain to whom? Toomby, that just looks like a "trick" question... and a pointless one at that... [aberaber] Of course there is never a "whom"... even when the "no-whom" supposes s/he's a real "whom" s/he's still not actually a real real "whom." But when a no-whom plainly KNOWS that s/he's a no-whom...

Um, I just checked... and somehow IT's still t/here. ;) But as to "time" ... well, I honestly can never be sure that "time" is always t/here. :roll: My impression is it's pointing to an eternal moment.

Now is always in the past. (bumper sticker) toombaru Well, I'm not usually the type to argue with a "bumper sticker" ;)... But I thought there's no such thing as "the past"...
