Evil illuminated me, but then there is no evil

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 33 years old. I have lacked peace in my mind and heart for years. However, due to a lot of circumstances that I will not go into, I had the illumination of my life. I finally understood Joseph Campbell. I finally understood myself. My illumination began when I vis...

I find this thread to be interesting because I have thought about death quite a bit. All of this reminds of of of how Plato described how Socrates talked about death in the dialogue called Phaedo. We humans are very much the same as the old Greek Philosophers and when we all pass there will be peopl...

There are many things I can say, but I shall restrain myself. I restrain myself in memory of Joseph Campbell.

There was an episode of Star Trek(original series)called Dagger of the Mind. I do not remember the episode greatly, but I remember that for some reason Captain Kirk's personality was split in some fashion. His evil side arose and was tryinf to destroy to good Kirk and take over the Enterprise. Long ...

I read the local newspaper just about everyday. I make my way to the local coffee shop and buy a small house blend and sit at a table to read the paper. I find that there is more gossip about the people running for president than anything else. I sometimes feel cheated after spending fifty cents(Ame...

Human beings seek love so that they may find meaning and purpose in life. This emotional tie allows for the raising of children. I believe that what drives the whole program is natures desire to reproduce. Love sustains natures all empowering will and love is nature as well. The disire to reproduce ...

Violence

Violence is woven in the human Psyche much in the way the desire for reproduction is. Religion,science, general education, and philosophy does not rid the world of this scourge. I find it interesting when I call violence a scourge because really I am saying that nature is a scourge. Let us consider ...

Susan and Wag, Thank you both for answering this thread. I must admit that I am a bit befuddled as to why there is interest in this thread. My thoughts and feelings are based upon the fact that I do not really care about this issue. However, I do agree with Susan(that is my mother's name-Very lovely...

I accidently posted my second post four times. :lol: One topic I missed was the minimum wage and why it should be raised. 1. Welfare and medicaid looks far more appealing than the current federal and state minimum wages. Who would want to give up security(government aid) for independence based upon ...

Hello Transtar, First and foremost, I will say that I respect your opinions. However, I disagree with them. 1. You said and I quote," The government is too big, bloated and needs to be cut down." If you remember George W. Bush was elected in 2000 and his second term is almost up. My point, we have h...
