3 Sides to Every Debate
    #1406639 - 03/24/03 05:46 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

1. Your side.

2. The other person's side.

3. The truth.

Exactly... No one knows #3 because everyone's ego causes him or her to think from only his or her own perspective. 

The truth is like the Loch Ness Monster.

The truth...

is out there.  :wink:

maybe thats that cruel joke that all of us always seem to fall for. we always think we have the truth but when really, its not really ours its just theres and we fuck it up all the time when we say something about what the truth is. maybe thats cause we can communicate to eachother that truth and therefore we are forced to some how subjectively interpret and distort the truth, like what you said. heh... Its out there. OUt THERE -- :ooo:------- :shocked:------- :confused:---- >>>>>>> . . > . . . .        .  ..    .

Do you think if we could get rid of ego or minimize to the best of our abilities, we would better understand the Truth? It seems that the only truth would then be experience, right now, which is kind of what I have been thinking lately... hmmm...

Hey man, I gotta know. What's your avatar from. That little radish has been bugging me for weeks. I think I used to play a game with that little guy in it.

He, he. It's one of those onions from Super Mario Bros. 2. I have no idea why I chose it. I saw it on some video game website and it brought back old memories of a good friend and I staying up late to beat the game.

thats what my mom believes... of course, she also believes that #1 and #3 are more similar than #2 and #3.
