Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

Look at some of these women and tell me you could concentrate on the board with those eyes looking at you. http://chesscraft.blogspot.com/2011/09/14-most-beautiful-and-hottest-chess.html No problem. Don't all women flirt? You can bet those ladies won’t lose situational perspective. At least, not wi...

Re:

Okay, now that that's all cleared up... Free will (choosing, self-direction) is (as) real (as the nose on your face). Your experience of yourself in the world confirms this. So: why do so many here deny what they know in their bones is true? I don’t mean to sound simplistic, but I don’t see a flaw ...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Yes Walker, that last quote is almost identical in comparison of meaning in Descartes “I think, therefore I am,”..so yes, I agree, you are right, well spotted, I would never have seen that amazing coincidence myself...good job! Are you serious? (I’m trying to think of a response that would cause me...

I don't see the connection.
Winston Smith, the protagonist of Orwell’s 1984, was named after Churchill.

Why do you suppose Orwell did that?

(Haven't seen the Gary Oldman movie about Churchill. Is it any good, or is it a pack of lies?)

Re: Music

Evil old warmongering bastard should have been hanged for war crimes and disposed of in a dumpster, but I do love this melody (not the sentiment). Good depiction of how pathetic 'hero-worship' is. Just look at the stupid, credulous faces, weeping over a mass murderer. If anything, idolised leaders ...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Thanks DAM. How do you ... or anyone ... think that last quote compares or contrasts with Decartes’, “I think, therefore I am,” if that is the proper translation. A synopsis is one more layer removed from the source, but it does save time for the academic gathering information. If one does not have ...
