Perhaps these citations will help you out the most...
It helps to cut off that loud internal dialogue to digest what is being read...I suppose you've been entrenched dug in and waiting for me to post
another thread just so you could troll it as well, congratulations...Friday November 30th arrived after the however long it has been since you've
Perhaps bold text will clarify I DO NOT CARE IF THESE IDEAS ARE REAL OR NOT, none of these things matter to me at all...I had to purge, exspel,
remove, drop, plop, flop this out of my mind...none of these topics are new; so feel free to run and start trolling every post on ATS; with the
quickest reflex of your index finger to quote and snip as fast as you can.
Perhaps that is what you need? Quotes...

As I said; I don't care if this smattering is real or not, you'll find many threads on ATS with bits of all of these ideas;
This type of thing is the exact problem I am describing, in the bits you can't even comment on or consider...Keep cutting and dissecting...it never
ever ends; it complicates you life, my life, all lives...my life would be just fine if I never heard of Antarctica, never saw the moon, never done a
lot of useless things to feed the machine of hate and greed and divide and conquer...so yes debate debunk, get into a tizzy over what exactly?
NOTHING; nothing made up from the human mind, that has zip to do with a basic survival skill, is utterly worthless and pointless and a waste of life.
If you want a real debate; debate what you'd rather not touch in the original post...something that has to from from within yourself not parroted
cites and nonsense from anyone else; from the very wrinkles you created in your brain yourself from extrapolating data and putting it across your own
field of experience...it still won't mean you know or understand anything. If you think you do then may Socrates rise from the dead and bite your
fingers and tongue from your body, in an instant.
Rationality's pursuit of "Pure Truths" derives from the first Greek philosophers who were establishing the concept of truth, against the opposing
force of "The Good". Although rational thought may find truth (or The Truth) it may not be valid for all experiences. Therefore, what is needed is
an approach to viewing life that is more varied and inclusive and has a wider range of application. Originally the Greeks did not distinguish between
"Quality" and "Truth" – they were one and the same – and that the divorce was, in fact, artificial (though needed at the time) and is now a
source of much frustration and unhappiness in the world, particularly overall dissatisfaction with modern life.
Take up your fine razor more sir; and let thine dissatisfaction continue to grow allow the seeds of all this useless knowledge fail you in the ability
to really live.
I know I sound harsh; and that I am picking on you...but believe it or not I am helping you to see the truth of reality and how you are watering it
and growing your very own dissatisfaction. How would I know this? Sir or Madam I was the very same way as you are now...you're decreasing the quality
of your life; whether or not your see this now, one day you will.
Philosophy is sadly a very under worked muscle nowadays; it creates the wrinkliest brain you could ever imagine. The jaw muscle could win a mister
universe contest, and echoed information just reflects mindlessly like a mirror.
Here's a Ted talk; we all love them right? It's about how too many choices can cripple you and lower the quality of your life... I believe it to be
a very good metaphor or analogy for the point I am trying to make clear to yourself.
