Are you an avacado or an onion?
    #3779531 - 02/14/05 06:41 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Are you an avocado? That is to say there is an essence surrounding you, experience has contributed to it. And your outer self is what constitutes the image others perceive of yourself. But take away the outer layer and there is a solid, hard, core that defines you. Something inseparable and everlasting.

Do you believe you are so?

Or are you an onion. Each layer is an attribute. Religion, profession, ideology, affiliations. Peel away all the layers whom make you who you are and what do you have? What is left once you peel away the layers? Nothing.

Which are you?

Judging by your response, it sounds like you are describing what one would find if they were to look inside your head.

That would contradict.

If you look at this beyond face value.

I am a walking contradiction, so there is no contradiction between me and the contradiction. Do you understand?  :shrug:

How can you believe in having a spirit and not believe in having a spirit at once?

In an attempt to sound intelligent you are making yourself look like a fool.

The spirit is the pure awakened energy of our natural state , While it is seemingly existent, when attemtping to find it, in essence it has no form and is completly empty and devoid of self-existence. Hence oniocado!

I am the cosmic fool spreading the cosmic joke!

I refuse to allow my intelligent and complex self to be reduced to a simple, mere fruit :P

I'd like to think of myself as a mushroom. Capable of inspiring, I am mostly made up of water. My deep roots help let me develope fast.

I am more like a carrot, or possibly a turnip.

Many of you fail to see the implied dualism.

Involving other fruits/vegetables destroyed the symbiotic metaphor.

Are you a potato? You are the one called spud are you not? It does not destroy the metaphor, but enhances it with true individuality we all possess.

This isn't a question of individuality, it's an attempt to describe nature and whether or not a soul exists.

There is nothing subjective about it. Either we have a soul or we don't.
