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 substratum?

Or should I phrase it as: Apparently what is it that the apparent dinosaurs apparently appeared in, which was their apparent substratum?

Like the police and the reporters use of the word 'alleged'.
Hi Richard.

I seem to remember you from the "past".

:lol:

Haha.. and there's another pointer to why no one can ever really be "enlightened"...
because the "request" for enlightenment is simply un-complete-able. ;)

Um... or maybe the "mis-configuration" is more accurately described as a non-configuration? ... for no one? ;)

Hahahaha ... now that's REALLY funny... :lol:

But yeah, even an "internal error" is Absolute Perfection. :D

Well, I'm not usually the type to argue with a "bumper sticker" ;)...

But I thought there's no such thing as "the past"... (except as a story) :-k

So does that mean there's also no such thing as the NOW? :?
maple3 wrote:... is it the "next NOW" yet? ;) :P
Does anyone remember those "Mom, is it soup yet?" commercials?

Of course, they are also in the the non-existant past...

...still fun though [bigsmile]

Of course there's no such thing as the NOW, in the same way there's no such thing as time.

The now is just a concept in our minds.

My impression is it's pointing to an eternal moment. (whatever that is :roll: )

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:
empty-and-full wrote:My impression is it's pointing to an eternal moment. (whatever that is :roll: )
Okay then, go right ahead and change the name of IT from "NOW" to "eternal moment" (if that's what floats your "conceptual" boat). But however you label IT it's still the very same Undeniable Unavoidable Un-escapable NOW (aka "whatever that is". ;)) :P

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, it's also clear that the KNOWING doesn't annihilate the KNOWN "plain."

In other words, it "could not be plainer" that the PLAIN doesn't need an actual "whom" to be KNOWN... because a no-whom is wholly sufficient for the KNOWING to be "plain." :P

Hummmmmm...........anything "known"..........has to occur within the realm of duality.


It has to be experienced within a subject-object arena.
