What keeps me young? Now there's a question.
In a nutshell, caring what happens, or culling it even more, CURIOSITY.
Hah, this is the first time I've tried the colors on the new a2k. Such fun, soooo much better than before. At least in concept.... let's see if it works for me on this post.
Yep! So, curiosity and the pleasure or at least the learning that follows.
Be careful with the colors, Osso; large groups of people can get superhysterical
for using them; some may accuse u of giving them headaches or driving them blind.
I have empirical evidence of these allegations.
If u will all excuse me for getting a little metaphysical on u:
I recognize that with time, our bodies change; we all know the cycle,
but I still feel that the kid
I always was remains inside propelling n steering
this body that has grown fatter, older n uglier, but that kid is still in there, in charge.
For what its worth,
I believe that the same as radio waves r intangible, odorless,
weightless, inaudible n invisible, so also is the life spirit within,
comparable to a radio wave that finds its way into a radio, or comparable to
driver who enters his car. The car gets older, but he 's still in there driving.
In time, he might opt to get out and get a newer model car, but he is still there.
I think we all know that a fundamental principle of physics
is the Law of the Conservation of Energy,
which holds that energy can be neither created nor destroyed; merely moven around,
concentrated or dissipated.
Does this apply to conscious life ?
People who have returned from death (usually in hospitals with defibrillators)
have told us that their existence and mental tranquility have continued
uninterrupted by the deaths of their material bodies.
During the last years of Thomas Edison, he turned his attention
to survival of death, by visiting hospitals where some of their patients
were known to be reaching the ends of their earthly lives. With their consent,
he put their beds upon scales of weight. It is alleged that at the moment
of their expiration, he observed a loss of weight.
How shoud this be interpreted ?
Permit me to submit, for your consideration,
that there IS
a difference between a human body with life
as distinct from a dead corpse. Call me superstitious.
Some people have returned from deaths at young ages; only a few months.
THAY reported that while out of their material bodies,
thay were not limited by the mentally feeble qualities of babies;
i.e., their spirits were fully adult, or timeless.
In my (humble) opinion,
time does not apply to us. Does a radio wave fall into decrepitude from old age ?
If our cars wear out from old age, we keep on going.
One way to look at it is that our spirits are born young, live young
for many decades, and die young no matter what;
its that good old Law of the Conservation of Energy! Praise be unto it.
I apologize for the long post.
