ROLF! Too true! I have a bloke on the other forum who always talks about Muslims - same things, day in and day out. Sometimes you get people who become obsessed with notions of "zero point" as regards the universe (or something). Day after day, the same things said, over and over. Somehow they find the repetition comforting or interesting.
For such personalities every day is Groundhog Day.
If I did we would probably be the first two people on this or any other philosophy forum who agreed with each others' take on reality. So I wouldn't take it personally - it's just what happens when people spend a lifetime looking through their particular eyes - they develop their own take on reality.
Actually, I am also very interested in the idea of "seeds" - the initial state that sets the parameters for future development. I'm also interested in the relationship between the core or nucleus of entities and their boundary with the environment.
Too right. The entire concept of "losers" is:Seeds hoping to set Greta straight wrote:If there exists the possibility that our consciousness (our mind and soul) will survive the death of the body (the metaphorical “seed pod”) and awaken into a higher context of reality...
...and if in this higher context of reality we will each be able to endlessly evolve with an ever-growing and ever-fruitful purpose...
...then what I am suggesting is that whatever it is that made the gift of life possible for us in the first place will also make sure that no human will be denied this amazing destiny.
In other words, it’s either “all of us” or “none of us.”
1) an effect of time, the misconception that conditions now are fixed and
2) a concept that only comes to mind to those lacking in maturity. So one doesn't need a higher mind to see beyond that petty competitiveness. Plenty of older people and "old heads on young shoulders" have moved past such schadenfreude.
