"You don' know nuthin. All you know is you been laid, relayed, parleyd, and that you are f$$@ed, flustered, and far from home."

Yet string theory has been invalidated anyway. Physics has moved on.

Yeah. YARN theory.

String theory needs more yo-yos.

To die, is far different than anyone supposes.

I refute it thus.


Mourir, c'est partir un peu.


Al, la petite mort.


It sounds like you're talking about the jungian collective unconscious. As much as I would love the idea that we're all psychically connected and thus on some level telepathic, it sounds like complete hokum to me.

You just lack the capacity to tap into the wavelength.

Here, let me activate the Brain Tumbler. It should help redirect your subconscious.

Forgive me for playing the American pragmatist, but what is one supposed to do with this perspective?

"All men by nature desire happiness," says the philosopher. How does this lead us toward happiness?

Spoiler:
Perhaps the ambiguity of the verbal tense of YHWH is represented in the Revelator's phrase, "Who was and is and is to come."

It stands to reason that tenses could be a problem in describing a trans-temporal being.

I don't know what anyone else is saying, but I'm talking about orgasms and lysergic acid deithylamide.

Not or, 'and'.


Ok. We're all on the same page, now.

I'd be much oblidged.

It leads wherever you might decide to take it. It may help you in building perspective towards your place in the world and your role into it. It doesn't change anything of the choices you make in deciding whether this world is better or worse off for your presence. Or you may choose to ignore it in favor of whatever single-minded pursuit you decide to engage in.

No one can lead you to enlightenment. One can merely be shown a variety of doors and pathways and it is up to you to navigate your own course.


I navigated deep into an abyss. It was less harrowing than this domicile.


I thought I smelled something funny.


The origin of why I enjoy the line 'I refute it thus'.. Which is one of many anecdotes in my personal favorite zen pocketbook.


We are all telepathic in the sense that through our senses we can learn what someone else is feeling and perhaps guess at their thinking. This is a very short range form of telepathy, if you want to call it that. In no other way do we have what people describe as extrasensory perception, and, of course, this is not ESP at all. As for collective unconscious, these are things related to our biology. The reason we are afraid of spiders, but nobody really has a phobia about AK 47s, is because of biology and evolution and not because of collective telepathy.

We are not ants, with a specific role to fill in the collective whether that role is to flourish or suffer, live or die. We are humans, utterly diverse in thinking and goals, and the collective has no enlightenment to offer.


I'll have to see if I can find it, but there has been an experiment that yielded results for something that could be called ESP. They were able to measure some level of synchronous brain activity between people in different rooms, but there was no meaningful exchange of information that could be measured though, so it wasn't ESP as traditionally described.


On Sissyl's argument, (and quite a few others in the thread) I declare anthropocentrism.

Ha! I knew you were going to say that.

Might I suggest you look at multiple personalities and quantum physics.

Multiple personality is when someone has multiple selves in a single body.

Physics is horribly flawed and only works in certain restrictive circumstances. Quantum physics is more accurate the problem is people try to use standard physics with it.

On the anything imaginable is possible argument. Might I point you to a planet discovered about 2 years back. It is a dense gas planet with what appears as islands of rock floating on the surface of the gas, an earth like atmosphere, and plant life.

Under standard physics such a world shouldn't be possible. Under quantum physics it is highly possible.

Multiple personality help the theory of oneness simply for the fact that a person can willing create them.

And finally a quote from the father of the electric age:

"All that exists is but an illusion of our understanding. Where I see blue you might see red but call it blue because of you being trained to call it blue."
-Nikola Tesla

Link?

Cause I don't think we've found life outside of earth. Or gotten clear enough details on any planet to see anything like islands of rock floating on gas.

We've got mass estimates and spectrometer lines, not much else.

I am a slumbering god, dreaming of the world.


No athropocentrism here. I just don't do new age.

Multiple personality disorder is a very insteresting concept... because it is only diagnosed in America, typically bad american MOVIES. In other words, it's b!$@*+~$. Severe personality flaws and inconsistencies can naturally exist, but the rest of the world doesn't call that MPD.

As for floating islands of rock, I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to see that link.


I can't do floating islands of rock, nor can I do plant life, but it's time to teach you kids some real culture.

NSFW!

"And we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever."

Hells yeah!

Insufficient evidence for the claims being made.

And you're not getting my bud light

This kind of reminds me of that one rule from Hybrid 0.3 that says that explosions have surface area. Either that or the 4 SIMULTANEOUS DAY TIME CUBE.


I refute the 4 simultaneous time day cube thus.
