Why is it............
    #3989686 - 03/30/05 12:29 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

people who claim to be ego less have huge egos about this accomplishment?

people who claim to have found non judgment are very judgmental about judgments?

people who claim to have found neutrality are not neutral about people NOT being neutral?

people who claim to be in the NOW are someplace else?

people who claim to know nothing can know they know nothing?

And why is it, the cosmic joke keeps getting more funny by the day?

I wonder if it was designed to crack us up and out of our shells.

These are just generalizations. Go ahead and add more if ya have them. Life is funny!

Are you one if you don't even realize it? I think anyone who comes off as one doesn't even realize it or see it. That's what is so funny about it. I wondered where I may come off that way and not realize it and how to avoid it. I want to watch for making self claims. That's the the only way I can see to avoid hypocrisy be default of our own self ignorance.

Im just going to play with words a little.

If you claim to have no ego, that means that you want people to recognize the fact that you have no ego, which points out that the you have an ego that wants recognition.

people who claim to have found non judgment are very judgmental about judgments?

If someone claims to have no judgements then they are making a judgement about themselves not having judgements.

people who claim to have found neutrality are not neutral about people NOT being neutral?

neurality is a falicy

people who claim to be in the NOW are someplace else?

Thats becuase they are thinking about the NOW as aposed to being it.

people who claim to know nothing can know they know nothing?

People can never know nothing becuase the principle of the mind is to know. If they know nothing then they have no mind

And why is it, the cosmic joke keeps getting more funny by the day?

It's a common problem on the spiritual path to confuse thinking with being. :mushroom2:

Funny egghead! Especially the one about not doing crack.

Nice addition Ice, it would seem when we are talking, we are in a thinking mode and out of a being mode which could explain a lot right there.

That people stick to categorizations rather then just accepting everything?

When one accepts everything... one accepts nothing, for everything contradicts itself in the end, thereby affirming the utter nothingness, (re: nullness) of one's true understanding.

Down with cookie-cutter templates!

:thumbup:  :lol:

Glad you caught it... see my point? We needn't be so focused on categorization for it isn't applicable in all circumstances.

If you can quantify my entire personality in terms of numbers, if you can denote, decode, and write a synopsis of what I'll do within a given situation, and suggest that you can predict what will happen afterwards...

By all means, denote my personality by a number... until then, as long as we cannot predict beyond a doubt what one will do within a given situation, their is no need to stick to our old fabled ideas that a categorization is a determinant of one's actions.

His reply was still funny

As for your why is it addition? :shrug: All I can say is is that you are not a claim maker yourself so maybe that is why. I know I have made them, even though I think I reference them as experiences I have had, not states of all time being. Even still I am not sure how well I live up to them 24/7 so I decided best not to make any as to not by a hypocrite by default of self ignorance.

There are two types of people in this world:

those that categorize other people

and

those that don't!

BTW, exclusive, did read the post called "Who's with me?" You will find some there.

People can say they know nothing but to know that is to know something. It's just funny stuff.

Nothing is always something... it's not funny :lol: it's fact. Describe nothing, and I'll show it's something.

That fact is funny!:lol: Nothing is something-nothing. I can prove it. The word nothing is in the dictionary. That makes it a word in the dictionary. That alone makes nothing something.

Nothing might conceptually be something, but nothing itself is nothing. Its the absence of something. One might say the absence of something is something, but beyond a conceptual semantics game, nothing is nothing. Or something. :grin:

Their was another post dealing with this concept, it was brought up by someone that the English language doesn't have a proper term to denote what nothing is.

They surmised that the best description of such is "nullness".

True, semantics are great... but really, nothing as it were, beyond a void/absence/deficiency/detriment of something still exists because it can be described by its characteristics or the lack thereof.

If it exists and can be described, it's something.

Actually, it needn't even exist for it to be something now that I think of it.

Example: my god is in an empty cup of coffee can't you see him? It doesn't exist, but if I play around with it long enough, and can make a working application as to why my god chooses to live in my cup of coffee are you to say that my god is nothing? It most certainly is something, and it's in my empty cup of coffee. ~Lunacy

Its not because you can describe what "nothing" is, that it actually is something.
"Nothing" is a concept. I like the word "nullness", or "void" is pretty good too. Its a hard thing to conceive, because being able to conceive it makes it become something that exists.

Its kinda like, we are the process that makes a "nothing" turn into a "something". But if you delete our role in this process, then nothing really is nothing..;)
