Why?
    #2037535 - 10/23/03 09:16 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Why do you post the things you do? Why do you come here everyday and persue what you do? Do you ever ask yourself why you ask the questions that you do? Do you think your life has some sort of purpose? How do you feel about yourself and the rest of the world? Can you say that there is a need for living in a symbiotic relationship with the rest of the world? Do you think that you affect this world?

Why do you believe what you do? Do you know what you know?

Why ask why? Why ask why about why? Who gives a shit? I dont know. How do you feel about people who ask you why you do the things you do?

Questions in the norm can be easily taken care of with answers.

To question in my mind is to wonder. To kind of step down from a world of answers and normality and imagine. I remember when I was little I could only imagine the possibilities. I was a thinker from the beginning, well from what I can remember.

A better question.

How?

Peace.

I'm here to teach, learn, and hopefully make a difference by helping people.

I'm here because I'm a cyberkid who prefers virtual reality over actual reality at times, especially intellectually speaking.

I've learned more out here on the internet (and on the Shroomery alone) than I've learned from my friends here in real life - I can say this with complete confidence..

I think this activity is so stimulating because we're all interacting with people from all over - we get such different perspectives out here on the internet that just cannot be found locally, IMO.

In short, like Shroomism, I'm here to learn, and I'm here to spread and refine the information I've learned


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

i like it when people ask me why I do things. It allows me to think a little differently than I normally would. I come here to learn, and maybe offer up words of wisdom. I like communicating with others as I think it is one of the main "purposes" of being here, for me at least.


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. 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

I think thats why i am here, like you , and shroomism :smile:

Today is my one year shroomery aniversary! :heart: yay . love this place.  :heartpump:

want to say my thanks to all the mods who make this place run like it does, for being a place of open minds when compared to the rest of the world. Thanks to all the shroomerites who are here to contribute and help other people. Ive learned a lot through this place, and some people on here seem to continually amaze me with their constant ability to make me think.

Its also been a year since my first mushroom trip. I would also like to give thanks to the mushroom, although i dont understand you mushroom, and you scare me sometimes, what you showed me i cannot give an accurate detailed thanks in words.  :thumbup:

I like people to challenge me, it makes me feel like im alive. Like there are people out there who care enough about talking to you to ask you why you do the things you do.

i come here to learn, to develop opinions/ideas through discussion, and to feed my curiosity about life. i ask the questions that i do because they occur to me. however, if you were to ask me why these things occur to me, i couldnt tell you. i feel my life has a sort of meaningless purpose. what i mean is that while my life may be insignificant in the long run, i still feel i have a purpose. i have no idea what purpose i will serve, but i dont see anything wrong with that and feel i will understand my purpose when it comes time to serve it. just as everyone in this world effects me, directly or indirectly, greatly or mildly, i effect everyone. i believe what i believe because of the life i have experienced. all i know is what i experience, the rest is just theory.

Just from experience.

Someone breaks something and the other person gets angry at you and asks... 'Why did you do that!?'...

Get past that...
How do we fix it?

Side Note - Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? ... Maybe my lack of 'education'... What other one word questions are there?

Peace

I felt like this too before, a rather meaningless life and existence, bombared by the simple questions that seem to nullify my existence. But still i stood, without wind, without word. Till the void that existed began to fade as well. I thought i would give my life meaning... I wanted to have meaning to my life, and i might not ever know why. Cause maybe its just a biological necessity.

I'm here to provide Clarity  :smile:
Yes I enjoy it quite a bit.


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

I am here... because Talkbass forums suck. :grin: Seriously now, they do.

I don't know, learn new ideas, express important thoughts to me, communicate with other crazy people, pass the time...
Peace.

:redpanda:
If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
