Sharing a language is not a connection of any kind. What a gross misapprehension of the world
My point is your notion of human connection, that because people can speak to each other means they are connected, is wrong.
What's your name again? Oh so you are a sneaky wall of water? There must be a connection there, right?
Even though I just explained what my interpretation is, you still get it wrong?
The connection between humans is not language in whatever form, but the level of understanding that follows the use of language, in whatever form.
So again, I ask you, what is your point? That human connection doesn't exist?
You can take it literally of figuratively. No I am not really a "sneaky"(rogue doesn't mean sneaky....) wall of water.
Are there more ways to interprete your name "the misantrophist"?
My point is you’re wrong. What’s your point?
My name refers to two of my favourite plays, actually.
If I am wrong, then there has to be a point that you made, that is correct.
So is there a reason why you refuse to say what your point is?
Is your point that human connections don't exist, or is it not your point?
Love, companionship, family, for instance.
All connections are physical
I noticed you dodged my question.
Physical in the sense of sexual? I'm fairly certain that's not what I meant. It's probably best to keep your mind out of the gutter in discussions like these, if that's at all possible. I speak of family and that's the first thing you think about? Ew.
No, human connections are not actual connections
No, human connections are not actual connections. They are relationships.
I'm merely adopting your terminology so we can reach the same "level of understanding", which is a connection according to you.
Right, but you first said that all connections are physical. Then you said that human connections include, love family, companianship.
So love, family and comapanianship must be physical then. So how is it physical then?
Oh now they are not suddenly?
So it turns out I was right all along, and you do think that human connections don't exist. All over the place much?
So relationships are not connections, but love, family and companionship are, only they are not real connections.
What a hilarious, yet not unexpected turn of events, lol.
Yes, a level of understanding is also a human connection.
Right. A human connection is not a connection in any sense. It is a word used to imply a relationship, not an actual connection. You’re equivocating.
You are obviously backtracking and all over the place.
So again you say that human connections don't exist.
I asked if this was your point 3 times and you first dodged and denied it. Then you said that love, family and companionship are human connections. I then quoted an earlier post where you said that all connections are physical.
This sent you off on a hilarious back pedaling session of which I have seldom seen the likes.
