Nietzsche's Lion
    #568691 - 03/03/02 04:22 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

It's rather frustrating (maybe I'm just impatient)...
So many lions not enough beginners, a few dragons...
I think this is because the lion is fashionable, almost trendy.
Dragons would be cooler, though, wouldn't they? So why aren't there more dragons?
I think it has to do with a fear of commitment and ample insecurity. Besides, being a dragon would be too much responsibility. So, we get this lion... the problem is that when progress halts with the lion, we get something less that the lion. We get this sort of seesaw action between sheep and lion (we'll call them, hmmm, wolves). You'll see wolves in packs usually, that's because they like the pretentiousness of genre elitism. Fuckers. If they would only stay on track...

So, am I going to get any input on this?
Or is there something wrong with this pearl?

What about a "lone wolf"?
A salamander?
A platypus?

By the way, what the hell are you talking about?

The urge to self-preservation is a restriction on the fundamental instincts, in a Nietzschian universe. The forms that dictate the existance of life are incredibly wasteful and prodigal, that is their fundamental nature.

Lion? Dragon? What the hell are you talking about?

Seesaw action = sex?

Cross-breeding a sheep and a lion begets a wolf?

What the hell are you talking about?

Give me a short description of the Lion/Dragon thing, and I might throw in something not relating to beavers :smile:

If one could choose between lion and dragon, no matter what the image is supposed to mean, dragon would beat lion any day. I have of course no idea what I really am talking about, untill you enlighten me, and please do. It sounds interesting.

I'm born a monkey (year of the monkey), which gets eaten by both lions and dragons...

Please elucidate
so I can contemplate
and try to formulate
something appropriate.

When you obfuscate
and I cannot translate
it begins to frustrate,
would you please restate?

hmmm.... I don't care if I'm obscure, I'm just fishing anyways.
But I'll give you this:

a child-> sheep-> lion-> dragon-> child (beginner's mind)

Well, I haven't read Neitzche (but I have a few good quotes from him) so I was trying to
find out what the hell you're saying. I'm fishing as well, but more like this:

fisherman-> hook -> bait -> fish -> fisherman (full belly)

I'm sorry if I'm too literal but I'm not familiar with Nietzsche's symbolism. If you don't care
to enlighten me I will remain with an embryonic mind as far as Nietzsche is concerned
and bother you no longer...

You need to work on your drawl a little and pay more attention to your hand movements, but other than that you have Jesse down pretty well..
