  2. Modern philosophers

    Any thoughts of who might be our modern day Socrates, Aristotle, Hippocrates, etc? People who seem so far out there, yet may be considered intelligent and admired 500 years from now?

  3. The thread about Nothing

    So sue me, Seinfeld! I walked up to my science prof one day and said "Mr. Bogarth...Space." He looked at me and smiled and said "I know." How do we conceive of the endless or 'nothing'?

  4. enlightenment

    I put this under philosophy because, although enlightenment is often considered to be a religious experience, it is a mental transition. What do you think enlightenment would be like? Divine wisdom and understanding. How could it happen and what would life be like to continue living in the world...

  10. a woman's tears

    A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him. "I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry for no...

  11. Post Change your strategy

    One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read:" I am blind, please help". A creative publicist was walking by him and stopped to observe he only had a few coins in his hat, he dropped a few more coins in his hat and without asking...

  13. Half full or half empty?

    Is your glass half full or half empty? I'd say mine is on the way to being full. A work in progress, so to speak.

  14. Money

    Why must everyone be obsessed with money? I understand that it makes the world go round, but, does it really make you happy? Some people revolve around money. Why? I am a religious person and money to me is like a symbol of a God other than our God as a people. So why do people trust in money more...

  15. What is Freedom?

    Since buzz brought it up. ;) I responded that it is a state of mind. I think that the only place we can know true freedom is in our minds...but that is not so easily attained either.

  17. I must confess

    I must confess that I don't have the faintest idea what my purpose is or what's going on, and I never have. I became comfortable with that mystery a long time ago - that I would never know how any of these things fit together in any explicit way. -Gary Snyder I must confess. I have often...
