Though you have not yet stated this, it is true that people do not live their lives with the thought of death everyday, and when most consider it they tend to resort to some fantasy about eternal life.
Until you have experienced the prospect of death in the face you never really know what that is about.
You are somewhere in between; I doubt you have faced the prospect of death in any immediate stark and unavoidable way, but you do not accept intellectually that you have any prospect of an afterlife, and this is what all this angst is about. You are definitely disappointed that you will die one day, but have not come to terms with that fact.
How wrong one can be.

Indeed how wrong can you be?? Quite a lot it seems.

I have experienced death in the face .

Tell me about it!


As for disappointment about death -again wrong.

What the fuck are you bleating about then?



Your problem is that you don't listen to what people say because it gets in the way
of what you think.
Have you ever asked yourself do you think what you think you think.
It is not only me that has recognised and identifies a collection of contradictions in your statements.
If I were to be kind this might only be because you are in the habit of hyperbole, with little care about over-exaggeration.
If I were less kind I would say that you are just plumb confused and angry about a loss of faith.

Here let me correct this for you:

I have decided that you are as intellectually gifted as Arising and so I am casting you into the wilderness with him .

I see that you have a habit of sidestepping the truth of your falsehoods.

You are cast out into the wilderness also with Arising and Chaz Whyman.
But do not confuse the theology ; it is not the 3 wise men, but the two clots and the
brat.

I see that you're not only ignorant but have a head of granite as well, thanks for ensuring I'm in good company, relatively speaking, as you are, apparently, an ignorant, self fellating coward.

You didn't last very long did you?
Falling at the first hurdle.
I thought a person who such delusions of grandure to have the head of Jesus would have had more confidence.
Maybe next time you crash into a Forum you should have worked through some of your more basic contradictions - or at least allow your self the humility to accept the views of others who have had the nous to have pointed them out to you.

Are you sure? Knowing what you do not know is still a form of knowing.

We have to clear our consciousness.


Let reality flow freely through us.



Stay out of the way.




Watch.


And understand.


Realize that what we identify as our selves is neither a beginning nor an end.

Everything flows.

Then the power.




Be still & know.

You find some of the more awesome gif's Bill. I also like the moon/stars/clouds gif. I can see philosophical content within them, if one cares to consider possibilities.

"What is the value of your life?"

Post by henry quirk » Mon Mar 11, 2013 3:13 pm

The value of my life (to me) is directly related to how successfully I defend myself and defend my autonomy.

As to value given 'me' by the other: pffftt!

'That' only matters if the other attempts to use me as he or she see fits (a use I self-defend against).

In other words: my life is as valuable as I make it.

But most relationships in which we 'use' one another nearly always include reciprocity. In these cases you value to others is a measure of the use to which you put others.
