I only asked you a few questions ImaFungi, i dont think the discusion qualifies as an argument. And yes i think i can see where you are coming from in some areas all through i do find your posting style a little hard on the eyes.
As to the Know thyself statement, you realise this is and old greek proverb, nosce te ipsum in latin, the proverb is applied to those whose boasts exceed what they are, and that "know thyself" is a warning to pay no attention to the opinion of the multitudes.
I here lots of new-age nutters spouting this "know thyself" crap all the time, when its plainly obvious that they know nothing at all, or if they do have half a clue as to what is going on and how things work there version is so fragmented and full of disinformation that it borders on mind control. So its not personal mate, im generally intrested.
So i ask you again, by knowing ones self as you say are you not simply confusing knowledge of oneself with confidence in your own actions and abilities?
