Something you should take into consideration.
    #11182515 - 10/04/09 09:06 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

It is impossible from our current personal perspective to see anything past our own cause and effect . To attempt and put this into some mild perspective a butterfly lives a very short  life . While Beautiful it may be, its average life span is only a few months to a year at best . Man is also like this when comparing his entire recorded history to the age of the earth . Both man and Butterfly can say I've lived here my whole life , but can not see past their own choices and points of view .The generally accepted age for the Earth and the rest of the solar system is about 4.55 billion years  A man may be able to fathom , his children and his children's children , But he can't see his effect on the earth or universe as a whole . What are the possibilities are there ? and what are we effecting ? In that same respect we can claim to have a great yearning for "love" but a great despise for hate . The thing is you need hate to exist to have love , because if you could not "hate" hate , then you could not "love" love .  But still we cannot see past our own inhibitions  and desires proof that we are all trapped within our own limitations . But the sickening thing is that we set those limitations ourselves ! We choose to be trapped !

Yeah a personal discovery.

I say here also often that everyone thinks history begins and ends with their lifetime and personal experience.

See how it works.:satansmoking:

So if I published a book on this topic that sold millions of copies and changed the cause of all our lives , then would it still be a personal discovery ?

I think your a negative person .

What did I do to you to encourage your negativity ?

I didnt say I was better then anyone or anything .

I was merely suggesting the question , at what point does one mans idea turn into a world changing experience ? for example the bible , It was at one time one mans Idea .

The thing is grammar errors aside , you've added nothing of importance to this thread . Your effect on this thread has there by been negative . Its not my opinion its fact , and its right in front of you in black in white . I was just answering your questions from the get go. What do you want to hear ? because I'm sure you tell yourself whatever it is all the time .

If i wanted to deal with such childish ego's I would have posted this in the pub .

Constructive criticism is one thing .

Derailing a thread is another .

Duh. What is your point? You've made an observation that has been made many times, what is your conclusion?

why does this even matter?

And what is there to criticize exactly? You made an observation and most people have already accepted this. So thanks for telling us what we know?

Gee Guess you put me in my place. However you must know that if I added nothing of value to your precious thread you certainly responded to me often enough. I think your feelings are just hurt but later you will realize I did contribute to your awareness.  :satansmoking:
