Re: ARE YOU A HOARDER?

. Appreciate your response. Actually, within this original post, I was attempting to build a philosophical bridge between the outer manifestation of hoarding of items and the inner experience of hoarding unneeded thoughts. ...but perhaps both are related? Letting go of unnecessary thoughts from with...

Re: FACECROOK

. BAT is an advertising revenue model and it has nothing to do with the harvesting of one's personal data for profit by third parties. Yes, I agree with that statement. I was using BAT as an emerging solution to what we are exposed to in the Facebook model. You must have misunderstood an earlier pos...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. I remember a member here that had a similar dream such as you. In composing music. Is that you? We told them to just go ahead & compose. I asked them to compose something, put it on Youtube and allow us to enjoy it. That was over a year ago I believe. Would you do us & yourself a favor right now &...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. You use a lot of words. In this medium, that usually doesn't bode well. I'm not trying to prove you wrong or right. Your experiences and the subsequent interpretation you have committed to are perfect for you. If the point of this thread is to fish for support of your opinion, I hope you find it. ...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. All due respect, think you are a bit confused on knowing yourself and labeling your functions as a human. I am, in no way, discounting the horror that you must have felt at one point. I think I understand you. Connotation of a few words only - perhaps separates you & the responses that you have ha...

Cryptocurrencies are volatile, seemingly irrational, and, at this point in time, totally based upon speculation of future promises. ..........................

Re: ~ The Philosophy of a New Emerging Asset Class ~

Re: ~ The Philosophy of a New Emerging Asset Class ~

. Thank you for responding. I think this is a fascinating & important topic and I was a bit dismayed initially that this thread received little response. You hit it right on the nose. Almost reiterating my original post. The more this new emerging asset class comes into existence the more I see it a...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. Couple of things I would like to review you upon. First: In essence, your views are in-line with the vast majority of humanity. Humanity agrees with you. So, I strongly oppose your assumption in that. Thing to keep in-mind is that emotions are immediate. Waaaaaay faster than the intellectual funct...
