Re: A Unfair Banning

There are threads where I'm way more radically crazy than that one. There's one out there called "Astral Posession" that's my personal favorite. Of course, in that thread I was 15, and now I'm 18, so some of my change might be attributable to simply growing up intellectually. :D [ Post mad...

Re: DONALD TRUMP - Who Is He, Really?

The US president has the power to deploy the armed forces (which encompasses everything between ground troops and thermonuclear missiles) without answering to Congress or anyone else for 60 days. Pretty scary power for one individual to have. [ Post made via iPhone ] https://www.world-of-lucid-dream...

Re: A Unfair Banning

How did he liberate your mind? He demonstrated the irrationality of my religiosity (which raised me from the intellectual slumber of dogmatism and initiated in me an explosion of curiosity and desire for knowledge), demonstrated the illusion of free will, the ego, among other ideas, as well as intr...

Re: Being a Well Liked Person

You're not really corrected, Summerlander. A girl who likes me for who I am is one in a million, probably. But I'm not going to change who I am for sexual purposes. :|

Re: A Unfair Banning

"It's not that it's too smart" Quite right. I'm not any more "smart" than you all (I don't even know what "smart" means); I only like to read and bear witness. Despite Summerlander's flattery. :) And, frankly, I wouldn't have the will to bear witness if Summerlander had...

Re: The Shocking Truth

I think John Searle alludes to something like this in his book The Mystery of Consciousness. In the way that Strawson put it, I can't fault it. We are consciousness and the only way to find it in the world is to be it. It's already found, in the Strawsonian sense, and to look elsewhere is to look f...

Re: Being a Well Liked Person

Not a categorical truth. I once dated a girl who liked my shyness. :P

First Attempt at Space Exploration

I've been obsessed with space exploration in lucid dreams for quite a while now, and when I randomly became lucid--dream induced lucid dream with no apparent motivator; I simply snapped and realized I was dreaming; I haven't been practicing lucid dreaming at all recently--I was standing in the foyer...

Re: The Shocking Truth

It was probably my failing to read scrupulously enough. I don't have a lot of time these days and have to read and write fast! :P

Re: The Shocking Truth

I love your contributions, ThePurple. Don't worry about finding something on-topic to say if you don't want to. Your piece about the horses is beautiful, and I bet you have tons of miscellaneous thoughts to share. Aldous Huxley was the man, and I've been meaning to read his Brave New World, as I've ...
