The Ice Skate Tao
    #2413281 - 03/10/04 02:00 AM (13 years, 15 days ago)

Jack Kerouac, a great man, wrote this.

THE ICE SKATE TAO
It isn't time that dulls the
edge of the blade, it's things.
My ice skates haven't been used
since they were sharpened in 1938.
They're still sharp, no ice has
rubbed the edges. He who ignores
things has made time disappear.



Any thoughts on the Ice Skate Tao?

You can postpone your death indefinately if you spend all of your time trying to avoid it. But then you miss out on life.


Oh, and I really like The Dharma Bums

On the Road Again was good also.

And when you realize this you can join the Homer Simpson Program, go to Las Vegas, get drunk and marry cocktail waitresses.

And remember, no matter how much it fucks you over, never speak ill of The Program! The Program is sound!  The Program is rock-solid! :lol:
Peace.

You may not have seen them cause you're overseas, but they have these "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas commercials."

I was watching "Real Time with Bill Mahr" and they parodied those commercials by showing many graphic riot scenes from Haiti, and it said, "What happens in Haiti, stays in Haiti."

Nei, still God. You must understand that God doesn't "see" things. I know of the commercials and everything, and I even have experienced them, as God, but I haven't "seen" them 'cause that would require eyes. :grin: God doesn't have eyes, he isn't in physical form, so There.  :tongue:

:lol:
Peace.  :mushroom2:

So basically you instinctively know what goes on on these forums, and you can type blindly?

He died of cerebral hemmorage induced by drink at the age of 47. God damned beatnik.

Oh, me as in the physical person can see and etc. etc. with no problem. But I'm ALSO God and he isn't physical. :grin:

So I might not have seen the commercials, but God has experienced them and has the images in his head. I am still God but it is more of a symbiotic relationship... you have to understand that this all lays outside the realm of logic. :wink: Divine intevention! Divine intervention!  :nut:

Myself, on topic, I would definitely prefer to use those damn ice skates! They were made for skating on ice, damn it! Skate on them! :grin: Life isn't something to stand by and admire it, it is to live it! :lol:
Peace.

Well, it was things that killed him. Time is a non-lethal idea.

Does ignoring things cause time to disappear or does it just cause the sensation of its passage to disappear?

Time is a squirrely concept.  :wink:
