Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

There were those who wanted to stay out of WWII. Personally, I don't know how I would have felt if I were alive then. I'd probably be interned. *flashback to alternate timeline* Queequeg travels back in time and arrives in pre-WWII America. Overtaken by culture shock, he unsuccessfully attempts to ...

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

Life of the Sramana is radical. Takes really true courage. To walk away from everything you are attached to... and drop out. Those are brave men and women. Undoubtedly. Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. ...But suppose it was WWII that American youths had chosen to drop out of—some kind of Beatnikish revo...

Well...

People with a decent hold over their own minds can be remarkably resilient and defiant. Even fearless... Not that I want to get targeted by cointelpro.

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

People need to be shown how to get into their minds. See what is there. I'm pretty confident the mindfulness craze is an expression of the impulse to look in. That yoke is off. People are just getting used to the freedom to look in. For centuries they were warned against it. Told that the good stuf...

Re: The Fastest Growing Religion In Birmingham Revealed

Just because the yoke of the Church is thrown off doesn't mean the mind will blossom. Now its just a poor mind set adrift. That's the West for you. Impoverished life of the mind adrift, grasping at whatever seems solid, which for the best of them becomes some sort of materialism. Its a lament. Barb...

Re: Chinese Scientists Have Put Human Brain Genes In Monkeys

honestly this is a nightmare scenario. It's similar to the recent story of a maverick Chinese scientist who claimed to have genetically altered an infant female. These people are literally messing with genomes. It's what Frankenstein was about, only a lot more real, and a lot scarier. They're going...

Re: Readability of Usernames

Hi all, so there are some users with usernames in Asian characters, which is perfectly fine, but, being unable to read these characters, - I don't know how to address you, (of course I can copy&paste your name, but I still have a feeling I don't know your name) Is the cut and paste option so bad? I...

Re: time traveling?

In astrophysics time is not separate from space, hence the term Space-time. Dropping out words will change the meaning. I think what you're refering to is ATrophysics :quoteunquote: (think high entropy). Many simulations have resulted in desertification, if you catch my drift. :spy: Djinn emerged f...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

Attributing those stories to the "mainstream news sources" doesn't make them fact, I agree. Where is the collusion? and putting those words into the mouth of such a bogeyman like the "mainstream news sources" says a lot about you. I'm the resident right-wing Buddhist fanatic. All the regular poster...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

I don't think either of those points you make stands up, and the way they are framed suggests you've got a narrative you already believe, so not really two options. Sure. I'd be interested to know 1) what sort of narrative you believe is being implied, (for my own edification,) and 2) what you woul...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

I'm curious... How do you figure the rule of law is not normative and functioning? How the law functions for the lower socioeconomic classes is an issue that could arguably be dismissed as having always, and perhaps that will always, exist—so it's an essay I'd save for an IM to those interested.

We don't have open warfare in the streets, and its not because we're all cowed in fear.
