Re: Philosophy of Mind

I forced myself up this morning to study. I studied for an hour or so nothing major but I at least studied. Oh what innumerable causes that cripple us and distract our reason. Just life itself.

Re: Philosophy of Mind

Hey lance4 is this how you talk to your friends? I have used 'realize' as meaning: to make real.

Re: Philosophy of Mind

busbondi, Some people and their small mindedness get on my nerves too. The every day chocks us all. To have to listen to what people have to say about going around in a circle of trouble.
