I thank you soficrow ,indeed thoughts become facts of Life and we must always choose the good ones.
Thank you so much. I especially liked the water photos you linked from the Daily Mail. Amazing stuff. Also - just had to copy the pic with caption: Thoughts become live - choose the good ones.
I understand your point of view but still....
I admit I read your words and looked at it from a viewpoint based on Logic and Science and I was completely frustrated in that not one of your statements associating words such as SHAPE to other words....made any LOGICAL SENSE in any way.

I guess that more wakeup calls are needed.
You mean this definition?
Do me a favor...as you seem to be a person who is not trying to piss anyone off specifically...and because of this I am desperately holding back on my responses as I cannot accept your illogic...could you PLEASE attempt to explain this last statement of yours in some form of Associatative Logic?
And, indeed, most humanists are nontheistic, have a non-absolutist approach to ethics, support death with dignity, and value global thinking. But such views are not central to the philosophy. To understand just where humanism begins, as well as discover where such ideas fit into the overall structure, it is necessary to present humanism as a hierarchy of positions. Certain basic principles need to be set forth first—those ideas that unite all humanists and form the foundation of the philosophy. Once this is done, humanist conclusions about the world can follow—conclusions which, by the nature of scientific inquiry, must be tentative. Then, after that groundwork has been laid, appropriate social policies can be recommended, recognizing the differences of opinion that exist within the humanist community. From this approach people can see humanism in perspective—and in a way that reveals its nondogmatic and self-correcting nature. The central ideas of humanism, then, can be organized into a practical structure along the aforementioned lines. Even though all humanists don’t communicate the philosophy in this way, it is fair to say that most humanists will recognize this presentation as accurate.
We humanists think for ourselves as individuals. There is no area of thought that we are afraid to explore, to challenge, to question, or to doubt. We feel free to inquire and then to agree or disagree with any given claim. We are unwilling to follow a doctrine or adopt a set of beliefs or values that does not convince us personally. We seek to take responsibility for our decisions and conclusions, and this necessitates having control over them. Through this unshackled spirit of free inquiry, new knowledge and new ways of looking at ourselves and the world can be acquired. Without it we are left in ignorance and, subsequently, are unable to improve upon our condition.
The visual system is the part of the central nervous system which gives organisms the ability to process visual detail, as well as enabling the formation of several non-imagephoto response functions. It detects and interprets information from visible light to build a representation of the surrounding environment. The visual system carries out a number of complex tasks, including the reception of light and the formation of monocular representations; the buildup of a binocular perception from a pair of two dimensional projections; the identification and categorization of visual objects; assessing distances to and between objects; and guiding body movements in relation to visual objects. The psychological process of visual information is known as visual perception, a lack of which is called blindness. Non-image forming visual functions, independent of visual perception, include the pupillary light reflex (PLR) and circadian photoentrainment.
The visual cortex is the largest system in the human brain and is responsible for processing the visual image. It lies at the rear of the brain (highlighted in the image), above the cerebellum. The region that receives information directly from the LGN is called the primary visual cortex, (also called V1 and striate cortex). Visual information then flows through a cortical hierarchy. These areas include V2, V3, V4 and area V5/MT (the exact connectivity depends on the species of the animal). These secondary visual areas (collectively termed the extrastriate visual cortex) process a wide variety of visual primitives. Neurons in V1 and V2 respond selectively to bars of specific orientations, or combinations of bars. These are believed to support edge and corner detection. Similarly, basic information about color and motion is processed here.
Do not fear give shape to your thought....
I fear I will have to respond in a....BLOW YOU OUT OF THE WATER...type of statement which I trying VERY hard not to do.
