Does information contain answers?
    #2121675 - 11/19/03 03:17 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Well, there's a lot of information out there, but does any of it contain any answers?

Answers to what?

Depends on your questions, of course.

most of the times people (including myself) answer their own questions.  what I look for most of the time is others people's responses because you can integrate their knowledge with yours.  it's a fun affair :smile:

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

Well no you could download the whole internet into your brain but unless you understand the information then the data is useless

Nah, there are no answers. I mean, sure, you can answer questions, but you can never stop the questions, so you never actually end up at a point where you actually have the answer to anything. Information is nothing.. explored.

but you can never stop the questions

One can quiet the mind. Silence is a good answer.

silence in general kicks ass, for me at least.

constant noise bothers me at least. notice how people beg for input all the time? like the TV for instance. this computer (for me) can't stand to even think about stopping the constant babble in the mind. clarity I suppose is there to help with why silence would be good.

silence i don't think answers any of the questions, but just puts questions in their place for a while.

Can you read a DVD without a DVD player ?
The information is there, the tool to read it is the player but the reader is the one who has the answers. We also structure the information to find faster and better answers, in fact we are the ones making the questions.
How about when answers are given and you try to find the questions ?

answers to what?

information is data, which can be used for answers, but you have to find a question first.

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.
