In One Sentence...
    #11168339 - 10/02/09 08:12 AM (8 years, 4 months ago)

respond to the last poster.

Please keep this thread to one sentence responses. Try not to respond to people other than the last poster. If you have more to say than one sentence, then let it go, my friend. Let it go.


The first post is:

Knowledge and Understanding are tools for overcoming obstacles - they are not good in and of themselves.

Good lies in the motives behind seeking the truth, behind the reason for gaining the knowledge.

If good lies behind the motives and behind the reason for gaining the knowledge, then what of that which lies in front; the means?

Means are sometimes outside of our control, leaving us to question what our purpose is and how we can best use our means and knowledge (knowledge which isn't always gained with full understanding of how it should be used) to fulfill this.

Indeed our circumstances are out of our total control, but the good lies in that small amount of control that we think we have.

Does thinking we have it mean we really have it?

We all have the choice between doing what is good and what is bad.

The ego chatters in the back of the mind, creating these worthless illusions of opinion.

No, it is not.

I do not, nor will I ever manufacture or distribute a substance which is illegal in any country.  Anything I post is purely for entertainment and scientific research purposes.  It is all theory.  Nothing I post is serious and it is generally nonsense.  With that said, LEO's can go to hell.

By its own definition, it is false.

EDIT: Changed "very" to "own".
