Re: alternate universes

Have you ever imagined your "other life"? The one you would be living if the train hadn't derailed that time, the girl had walked the other way, the scholarship had come through, or whatever potentially life-determining event had turned out differently. What would be your ideal alternate life? How ...

Re: The Art of Peace

When life is victorious, there is birth; when it is thwarted, there is death. A warrior is always engaged in a life and death struggle for Peace.

... There is leniency for those POWs who are tortured but military personnel are encouraged to withold any truths as long as possible. Besides, if I were being tortured I would rather die than give up any info that could get anyone on my side killed... I'd have thought the point is that you won't d...

Re: Poetry here.

Pretty good. The end bit is a bit weak though, talking of the destroyer, it'd have been better to have ended it on a positive, upbeat vibe somehow, instead of being about the readers' demise. It may be a reference to Shiva and/or his derivatives, which places ego first on the list, which artistical...

Re: (Artistic) Taste

The earth is roundish, the planets are, the sun too. We spin around. Balls are in lots of sports. The ball, or roundishness is the religion of the universe. In that, it doth be a main thing (to quote palin). You say, the spheres move only to balance. Balance what? Why is the earth a ball? Because i...

Re: Philosophy is actually dead because...

Philosophy needs firm empirical grounds from which to operate and this is what science provides. You’ve said this at least twice.
