Answer: a paradox. :wink:




u hit it on the head.....
did u just read under my name?
i was gonna start a line of questioning to incenuate a paradox, but it seems unnesisary at the moment.
that and it feels like no one has given the oportunity.

Ha! I wasn't going to bother with the question because there is no answer. Then I saw your little sig under your name and it seemed perfect.

A quandary.

Truely, you are a subjective experience. That is as far as we can determine, as the experience exists right now, even if it is a delusion. From this, we can try to draw conclusions about the experience from experimentation, observations and logic created by spending time in the experience, and thereby gain some possible knowledge about what you are.

Nothing is absolute, but that which is subjective can be studied and known since it has no philosophical problems we'd have with something claimed to absolute, objective or exist outside of the experience.


--------------------
So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

there is no reason for existence. yet it seems to be here.
coherence seems impossible. yet i seem to construct things(and i myself seem to BE a construct).
the universe apears infinite, and yet it appears linear.

can anyone explain the force of will?
why do positive an negative attract?
i have many questions. it seems none have answers.

....at what tempo does the universe play?

"coherence seems impossible. yet i seem to construct things(and i myself seem to BE a construct)."

by implication you are a paradox (as discussed earlier) - i'm curious, if you want to share, what do you find paradoxical about yourself?

Watch out for the trap!
Trying to answer the unanswerable is an indulgence and distraction, carried to extremes.

Carry out many of your experiments in action. You don't need all the answers to find yourself in the zone. :heart: :heart: :cool:

Your ego sets traps if it's anything like mine. :wink:

I suspect they are unanswerable because they keep getting asked and no one gets any farther toward an answer IMO. Tell me what is the meaning of life? :wink:

I'm saying to act. Rather than think. Your experience will show you your truth.

I wish. With the money I could drop out and buy land in Costa Rica, quit working, cut the souls off my shoes, climb a tree and learn to play the flute.
