I don't know. Maybe you should ask yourself seeing that you took the time to come here and start your own thread.

see... i'm thinking that you can actually learn alot from thinking and talking and bouncing ideas off of people. you just can't learn everything.

the truth is, most people come here to find confirmation for their beliefs,
which is why they get so upset when people challenge them instead.

some are here just to share and learn
others want to deconstruct beliefs that they feel are "illogical"
and then there are those who come to ask "why are we here?"

I'm sure there are many other reasons for people coming here.
I come here mostly for entertainment.

I've been reading the various threads with interest these past few months...although I am mostly a lurker in this forum.  I come here to stimulate my mind and to dwell upon ideas or reflections that I ordinarily wouldn't have thought about.  I feel like many people here, although their views may differ, are all born of the same womb, so to speak.  Weird, but thats how I see it.  :smile:

maybe you shouldn't generalize and think a lot of people on here think they are "experts" though I don't doubt some think they are. instead of asking why, ask why not.  why not come here and express and share ideas. it isn't really about "knwoing" just learning. I come here because people here make me think, and that's a good thing! what's wrong with sharing ideas?  to me that's one of the finer aspects of life :smile:

We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

This is referring to the Tao. Most of the time, in most circumstances, we cannot know the Tao. Only those who are beyond speaking, beyond thought, like a mountain or a tree for example... only these know the Tao.

So settle yourself down and sit in silence and see what it tells you.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

What's the point of doing anything?

Why ask questions if you think you already know the answer?

I don't think the phrase "Those who speak do not know" was meant to imply that we should all be eternally quiet. The world would a pretty empty place if such a piece of advice gathered popular following.

A better way to express the idea behind that phrase would be to say:

"A wise man who knows he is wise is a fool." Those who take pride in their virtues are not virtuous people. An act of virtue done in boast is sin.
