Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem?

So here's to the perennial quest for resolution. Cheers!

Just do not get Escher or Bach involved.

Maybe death will give us the answer or at least we will all be a part of the answer, if we equate death with nothingness and life with something? Just a random speculation, maybe I'll just read Hofstadter book? I give up, for now.

It most certainly will; as you will find out if you completed your contract as you desired initially upon incarnation; good thoughts (read Hofstadter for fun).

When something separated from nothing it was the birth of time.

I had nothing to do with the outcome of the Cards vs Cubbies Game today: NO; (that ball that hit the ivy direct did not stick in the vines should have been a triple).

Back to your initial premise "to be naïve is a good thing" (based upon what ideology) as guilt and denial for the true 'naïve' is not a thing considered AT ALL (no comprehension).

Naiveness, like evasiveness, and perhaps passiveness hurts the brain less and hearkens unto a state of innocence.
Either Melville or something I just made up.

Naivete (have been accused of often being) is everything compared to evolving an evasiveness or true word "Cunning" as is the custard base it profligates to outsmart or outthink another. This is a word idea forum/for fun. I like Melville; Conrad and Edgar Allen Poe, you know the others.

Is death a philosophy of thought?
I would say I thought naught of the thought I aught.

The roaming WORK is dangerous as is not "HOME" based (odd; I have no idea where *home* is: makes this thing I call grafting/surfing an unknown very frightening potential) but still familiar/safe enough. This is getting into the existential realm of idea forms.

Only if one thought ones physical death aught have brought the cessation of all thought; (killed eternal idealization forever in its being-ness).
I DONT THINK SO.

Reactive personality formations are entertaining, from the level of reactive personality formations. Self reflexive reflectivity. I thought so! And Lo! So IT was! or wuzn't wizend wozent
