Life is like an onion, ?

If you peel away all layers, to find its centre, it is nothing that you find! :P
All layers in the ?onion? we call life, are touching each other. 
All layers are the one?


:laugh:

After I peel them, I like to fry them. :hellfire:

what a coincidence...

funny, funny indeed!

I heard it from my sister, but I kind of took it out of context, and in to it all.. :P h?h?
I can go forever on this one.. hehe

If you ever meet me and we talk, do not bring up "the onion" effect..
it tingles in my head.. :P haha
one layer, one mirror, one force.. magnetisms, is but its mere potentials, thus more so, a limit.. :wink:

if "skeleton" is a 'layer', one might see, how the various parts coincide, creating what I referee to as the onion, as this universe.. right here.. right now.. layer's touching all layer's.. they called it God, the creation of (hu)man? I ramble..

What a beautifully mess?

wonder if my "cocky-style" will blossom, or at all take rot?

Sleep, I will! sleep!

Not sure, but as i was getting ready for bed, it came to me, that maybe the "onion metaphor" was related to that the surest way to find nothing, was to peel away all the layers of an onion,...

much like what my dad told me when I was kidder..

"spit in one hand, and wish in the other.. then see which hand you got full of what?"
-Heard it from my father.. :wink:

anyways.. Sleep tight.. whatever that's suppose to mental-image-bring-to ZzzzZzzz...
