Okay, maybe a serious response Mashy - 15/01/2003 11:41:10 PM

Of course, you are thinking, are you going to use any weird phrases in this post, Fan, because if not... But bear with me. To delve deeper into silly vaguenesses, I'd like to just get some sort of discussion going on why we wandering blobs of sensual-cells think what we think, and why we are so adamant against other viewpoints.

Okay, first of all... what do I think? I don't know; you'll have to be a little more precise about your topic. "What do you think about everything?" isn't going to get a response. Too broad. Give me a topic. Of course, if you're not online any more, you can't. And if you do it later, I might not be in the mood any more, so... ehehe. You have missed your only opportunity to pry into my brain.

Also, the manner in which one defends their viewpoint against a contrary viewpoint, often only leads to the other person defending their viewpoint in a more adamant manner. If our intent is to show the clarity of our thought, I find it amusing to note in doing so we often only make the other person see their own as more pertinent. It seems as though we are all blind forces forcing another force to feel more secure in its own blindness.

Usually I don't bother defending myself. I don't care about my ideas very much, which is why I'll never be an author or philosopher.

I guess what I'm trying to get at (In my 11:30, green tea-sipping, He-man pajamas-wearing manner) is this: I see all sorts of people arguing just the way I'd think they'd argue, based on prior experience; on a particular issue, I can usually discern who is going to think what; people I know do not surprise me by what they think, and it makes me wonder: why does one person think this, and another that? Is it due to intelligence level, or just some soft swirling at the bottom of each of our metaphysical identifies, telling us bear left here, swing a right here, this is the way to go, follow me, I know they way, I've been here before, this stump, this pink house...?

Yeah. It's hard to surprise people when so much has already been thought of. I mean... all most people can do is believe one thing or another, never think of something new on their own. Nietzsche was probably the last guy to come up with an original idea. Too bad.

Quite honestly, I wonder if we've all turned our road-maps in different directions, while searching for the homely-hamburger shack of blissful agreement.

Hamburgers are yummy.
