@Buttermilk,
That's my boy Sam. I feel sad because were going to have to put him down soon. He has lymphoblastoma. He's the best dog I've ever had.

@neologist,
Wow...ok. I find if hard to make fun of people's beliefs. I think it's insensitive & cruel. But---I have no problem arguing about why I believe the way I do...

@Germlat,
I was always polite to xingu, same as with David.
Though I may occasionally have lapses.

Well, I haven't heard from Mom for over 10 years. Does that qualify?
Come to think of it . . . . I haven't heard from any of my ancestors. I always thought I was a pretty good guy. So what am I to them? Sliced Bread?

I sure could have used their help on history tests.

The human body is like a light bulb. We are not alive, nor is the light bulb glowing. The energy enters a host, creating an animation, like the light of a bulb, or the life of a body, but when that bulb/body cannot hold the energy any longer, the energy returns back to the Universe, but the body/bulb dies.

So, what kind is yours: incandescent, fluorescent, low energy, Led, or else?

I ask because I'm in the dark here, I'd expect you shed some light..

@timur,
"like a light bulb", such words have went over your head, for you think very low - think high.

@One Eyed Mind,
You know nothing about energy, waves and their visible manifestations, do you?

So, how can you think "high" if you have no foundation on which you can speak?

However, I must admit you are good at blowing hot air..

@timur,
I feel them every day via perceptual-inversion tactics. I live solely by the forces of nature and how they expound upon my living experience day after day. He who sees all the world through every creature's eyes, is he who can be anything.

@edgarblythe,
This is of great interest to me and I am forming an understanding for my "self-less" mind. I say "self-less" because according to Buddhist teachings, there is no true or absolute "self" that exist or is material. Here is the logic of what I understand: Where does self live? In the brain? When the brain dies, where is the "self?" Is the "self" in body cells? When cells die, where is this "self?" Awareness is a byproduct of brain, mind--a function of the brain and/or mental components, and our five senses. But, when the brain dies, our mental components stop being. When the five senses stop being there is nothing to perceive or sense. Awareness will then cease. So, where is the self? Self is not a single component of the brain, sense organs, mental components (feelings, personality, emotions, cognition) because the body dies and everything with it--except maybe energy (atoms). Is energy "self?" Energy does not have a brain, mind, material body, sense organs--as we know it. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it comes in different forms, and can be either stored (in a form--e.g., body, mind, brain) or working (exerting to push, pull, move, create), but it is not the body, or mind, or mental components or sense organs in or of themselves. Energy is not aware and it does not have a "self" to speak of. It is not a single component of these factors. So, once we remove all of causes of body and mind, there is no awareness or self that is independent and functioning on its own. That is how I understand the existence (or non-existance) of self, awareness and energy. I look forward to reading other ideas and thoughts.

Our information formula is eternal. Why? Because when and if possible in a cyclic Universe it will eventually repeat. In that sense we nnever ceased to exist nor did we ever come into being. We ARE there!

@Fil Albuquerque,
and you can provide evidence to that assertion?

I think not.
