Challenging Your Expression Abilities
    #4693572 - 09/22/05 02:30 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I have devised an experiment in which I hope everyone will participate. Our usage of language is so ingrained that, when forming words, we select the letters without much conscious awareness. We might consciously choose the words we are expressing ourselves with, but as long as the words we are using have been used by ourselves countless times before that, we will put no thought into the selection of letters that make up those words.

Thusly, I wish to see everyone post a 500 page essay on any aspect of trees that they wish to discuss, be it the color of their leaves, physical processes of trees, the qualities of a specific kind of tree, etc. However, you must do so without using the letter "a", and it must remain coherent as well (well, as coherent as some of you UFO proponents can possibly get :wink:).

Even if you do not respond with an essay, I do not wish to see the letter "a" in any of your replies. Using that letter will not respect the original intentions and purpose of this thread, and will contradict the kind of discussion that I had wished to see. Also, I believe that if you do break this condition, not to use the letter "a", then, as recent examples will demonstrate, you will be banned from this forum. :grin:

This experiment has just as much merit as any other recent experiment. If you call my intentions for this thread into question, by the same logic and reason, by the same right, I will call into question the intentions of other, similar threads (perhaps they devised it simply to get Swami banned? trolling?! :shocked:).

All right......

...Discuss.

:thumbup:

Thank you for abiding by the rules. :wink:

Also, it is to be noted that, as the original poster, I am beyond all self-imposed rules, and that I may use any letter that I fucking want. :tongue:

I guess the tree essays do not have to be 500 words long, either. It can be simple as "trees like... rule homie". :grin:

Trees...rock.

Point...understood.

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna
