Do you think life is more than a play of creativity?

By that I mean... is human life significant beyond the human experience of it? Does human life have eternal repercussions? Is human life “serious”? Or is human life just another creation of physical nature expressing potential and its many fluctuations, to be experienced and honored/treasured (or no...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

it seems ignorant and absurd when a man calls any woman a whore, as an insult. It seems like a very primitive mentality It seems like this insult bothers you quite a bit. At least in terms of that, it seems pretty effective, so maybe someone who's looking to insult you shouldn't stop using the word...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

since ancient times, prostitutes have been consistently damned as extremely wicked and the lowest of the low. For thousands of years they have been characterised as unclean/diseased, obscene, depraved, vulgar, devious, duplicitous, cunning and mendacious, etc; And today, in 2019 nothing has really ...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

I've never understood the mentality of calling women "whores" as if that's some terrible insult. Well, you're not trying very hard if you don't at least understand where the mentality comes from Yes, I get that. My post was trying to make the collective point that: a) women are held to different (a...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

now that you ADMIT that there could be ONE SINGLE PATH to get somewhere, then we can finally start MOVE FORWARD, (along that path?). Why? There is NO WHY to what could be done. WHAT there is, however, is NOW a possibility. Do you think there is something we are supposed to do with this POSSIBILITY?...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I'm acknowledging that anything is possible -- but a single path just doesn't seem likely to me. I have KNOWN this for quite some time now. But what does not SEEM likely to you could in FACT be thee Truth. What is it, exactly, that you have KNOWN for quite some time now? Thee Truth, to me, IS there...

So, there you go Lacewing (!) ; the next time you want to insult a male you find highly offensive
Thank you for the suggestion. It seems I've been blessed with an extensive and creative vocabulary of applicable insights and insults... and it's good to use and enjoy one's gifts, which I do. 8)

Re: Re:

If there is zero intent to reciprocate (play by the same rules) it's a powerplay. Yes, it is. It's very noticeable to me when people play a "higher power" card as if they are a voice of some higher stance -- a deceptive denial that they are thick in the stew themselves. It is a lie and it is unbala...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

If there is a Universe of endless possibilities, then obviously there could be one single path to get somewhere. I suppose so. But a, "I suppose so", comes across, to me anyway, as a very strong resistance to thee Truth. I'm acknowledging that anything is possible -- but a single path just doesn't ...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

Dachshund...thanks for your thoughtful response. In the West, the term "whore" is a term of abuse applied to women. A "whore", in the vernacular, is typically taken to mean a female prostitute. To call a woman "a whore" is to express an intense contempt for her; it is a particularly rancorous and bi...

Now that Walker and Lacewing have finished having their lengthy bun-fight, I wonder if I might refocus discussion on the OP ?
Great idea! Just now I've got to run out the door, but I look forward to seeing what you've written and then responding when I can.

False, you wanted to become one with the universe...this is what the universe presents. Accept it or not, it is your choice.
