Almost Pointless
    #11285022 - 10/20/09 05:17 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

it just occured to me that researching the unknown is nearly pointless bc its so vast and endless and full of things that can do and would and will change everything we already know that by the time anybody ever figures the shit out, we'll all be long gone.

Fuck, I keep hitting 'edit' instead of 'reply', I need to unplug.

I dig you added 'almost', the gateless gate is the pointless point, understanding is found by way of confusion.

Get the language right, skeptics aren't the enemy of mystics, if there must be an adversary, reductionists are.

I don't really have any beliefs, but instead, I just debunk others'; this is how the scientific method operates, and without it, there probably would never have even been a Shroomery. :haha:


It seems that you believe that since I do not subscribe to your wild imaginative beliefs, that I must have somewhat of a dismal personality...:hehehe:

Your belief that life has no meaning isn't a belief of your own?

I don't exactly believe it, as I don't think there's any way for humans to know anything with absolute certainty. :monkeydance:


I do have theories, though. :satansmoking:

does pointlessness somehow detract from the fun and fascination along the way?
