Simplicity
    #333331 - 06/03/01 07:36 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Helo. I am here for a couple of months. I have noiced that here like on other places people write long posts. Why cant you write it shorter?
Would it loose its sense? Dont you know that deepest thoughts are the simplest ones?
So my adviceto you is to short it as much as you can. That is because I am too laze to read all that taxt for one simple idea. Arguments. That is another topic, but again put that under quote section or something like that.
Thanks for reading and responding.

i don't think all posts can be explained in just a couple sentences..i know what you mean though sometimes its annoying to read long posts, but if you have a problem just don't read them

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

The simpler i get the longer i become.
Lose written language.
Lose verbal communication.
Change communication.

Try to understand one another.

if you want to make an impact for the future, in terms of changing communication, stop using verbal communing in front of your friends, teach them body language, empathy, and telepathy if they have an open mind.
Teaching them will have them use it around you, it will make them more versital and it will pass on to their kids...
If enough people start to do this eventually we will evolve and stop using verbal communication.

Watch a bug, see how it communicates, the ant, with rubbing of his antena.
The bee, how it dances
How mayflys dance in large raves.
and so on

Unlike other forums, the topics that are discussed in this forum are often unusual, uncommon, etc so its hard to use day to day language to describe the idea. If i had memorised a dictionary i could probably write an idea down in two sentences, but then others would need a dictionary in order to unravel the code and find what iam trying to convey, and thats IF i used a dictionary. Using basic english that everyone understands to convey a unusual but simple concept is difficult. Look at those old simple japanese haiku and writings, a simple idea, written in a simple manner, but require long periods of study to fully comprehend.

You want people to talk about simpler things, or you want them to use less words to talk about the same things...

Bertrand Russel had some neat things to say about language and how we use it to talk about simple and complex things. The fewer words you use, the more complex a thing you will describe, while if you use many many many words, you will be describing a simple thing. Think about it: Use one word, say God or Love or something wacky like that. Pretty vague and complicated. Even the single word Pen could mean a million things, it sure dosen't specify which pen it is, what the context we should think about that pen or anything like that at all. While, if you use alot of words, you pin down the context and colors alot more, you narrow your explanatory scope to a single, simple idea. It might be a complex road to get there, but the idea all those words are trying to convey is simpler than the vague idea few words convey.

I thought that reverse relationship between # of words and complexity of the idea was pretty neat and it fit in well with the discussion here.
