Trying.. ..is an illusion!

When you do it, you did it..
When you did not do it, you did not do it?

The above, is reality.

This is the illusion, when you did not do it, rather than admitting, that you did not do it, you say you tried?
See?


BTW: I am better than you! (HA HA)  :grin: :thumbup:

If you did attempt to do something and were unsucessful you still did not do it, but that is not the same as not even making an attempt. So saying you tried is still just as real as saying you did not do it (they mean the same thing but tried means a little more).

nothing because you would realize that you just couldn't differentiate between the liquid and solid

Gomp, I would like to see you pole vault 30 feet in the air, without many attempts aka trying.

Trying is a word that represents the model of "trial and error."

my wick will burn out.

"why try, when you in doing did not fail?"
