We possess our bodies I think. However, if we think our bodies posses us, then we will live in struggle with it.

Fun question.

How did you come to think of that? What do you mean when you say the self? The body, or the mind or both or something else.

What about the people who are obsessed with their bodies or possessed with other spirits trying to gain control of their bodies? :lol:

Without entirely understanding your meaning I'd say there really isnt any possession in the universe but instead a great deal of co-existence. Some of that is symbiotic some of it isnt. That is to say, if you see your corporeal aspect as having two pieces a physical (body) and ehtereal (soul or what have you) you might say that they coexist in a symbiotic relationship. Meanwhile, can we say that our solar system posses the Earth? Yes, in the sense that it is a charachteristic of the system it lives in, but no in the sense that it is a concious choice on either sides part. What a fine question, deff.

It doesnt really reduce to that. Sure 0 = 0, but 1 = 1 is pretty reduced. I dont see your point though.

bring both numbers to one side of the equation...

1 = 1

0 = 1 + (-1)

0 = 0

:cool:

That just means its a balanced equation. Besides, if you were 0 instead of 1 you would not be posting (assuming we are dealing in units and not binary).

I know, but I don't mean this at all in a mathematical sense.
(despite my 'equation' above)

What I'm saying is...
