the differences make things interesting!
constant change..
you stick with what works..but some day it wont because everything around will change..change,change change..change your underwear :nut:

change is good.

I watched a episode of Scientific American Frontiers where they where studying the heart.
If you listen to your heart when at rest  it sounds fairly regular.. but actually in a timed elapsed EKG we see that it indeed is constantly shifting and varying ..subtley yet definately..

even stranger if you put the readings into musical notes a healthy heart plays a perplexingly beautiful melody..while a un-healthy heart is a repetetive song..comparable to pop music :thumbdown:

what we are actually seeing is proof that change is healthy and whats more the basis of life!
constant subtle changes on all levels..some for the worse..some for the better ..but all for LIFE

EKG ==> ye mean an ECG (electrocardiogram)?

I'd think it would be pretty boring around here when everybody would be like myself :smile:

It's indeed the diversity that's so interesting yet sometimes difficult to cope with. It's often, because yer different from others, that you will feel (intuitively) excluded from the 'rest'...

Our quest for discovery fuels our creativity in all fields, not just science. If we reached the end of the line, the human spirit would shrivel and die. But I don't think we will ever stand still: we shall increase in complexity, if not in depth, and shall always be the center on an expanding horizon of possibilities.

The core of every human is the same; the desire for peace and happiness. But, metaphorically speaking, since we speak different languages, miscommunication results in misunderstanding which leads to confusion. "Intelligent" and "rational" (yet closed minded due to embracing illusion) people dislike confusion and so an imaginary power struggle is created. I call this idea of power the illusion. It is non-existance yet exists when you put yourself and what you think you need (power, money, pussy, pot, government) over the positive existance of others.

If we all mastered ourselves we would ultimately learn embracing peace is the only way to achieve a utopia.

Sounds boring, doesnt it?
yep...we've got a lonnng way to go...

As the life of a candle,
my wick will burn out.

I don't recall the name of the philosophy, but there is the idea that everything is the same. I appreciate this philosophy.

Would you clean horrid-smelling sewers and doing unspeakably grotesque tasks related in sanitary-conductions deep within the drains and pits of toilet-garbageness for 8 bucks an hour?

communism?? if so


my experience with comunism can arugue it is not good. although looks good on paper people who study to be doctors (For free) have no desire to work because there is no access to better drugs because there is no compitition. and they can make more money workign at a hotel for tourists.

peace

When in the US Navy, I applied for Conscientious Objector status and my Secret Clearance was illegally pulled (and reinstated shortly before my discharge). I went from being one of relatively elite radar crew to cleaning urinals and toilets every day for six months. At first I resisted the "punishment", but with a Zen-like mind shift was able to perform the tasks in a happy fashion and actually took pride in my work.

The proof is in the pudding.

I'm glad everyone isn't like me.  I'm a pain in the ass, as I'm often told, and if everyone was like me, I'd shoot myself.  :grin:

And all the people that WEREN'T like me would have a party, because they wouldn't be burdened with the (many) likes of me any more!  Woohoo!  :lol:
