Introduce yourself here <-----

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

I guess it depends on wither that something is a thing defined by how it looks or if it is defined in some other way and just has a typical appearance in association...

I was going for the first part there...things are also necessarily defined or recognized by their physical characteristics; e.g. water is wet and has fluidity...fire is hot and blazes. As for the second part, that is more difficult as we tend to interpret and give meaning to things which are not what they appear to be. For example, is the door opening to allow us in or to let us out? :lol: OK

All this Koan-talk....

I think I'm about to reach enlightenment here. My Yin is establishing a workable arrangement with my Yang.
Humble yourself or the world will do it for you -it was either Russell or Whitehead. I can't remember which.

When I was young, I use to think the world was a messed up place so i was pissed off a lot. But now that I'm older, I know it is. So I just don't worry about it. -John Lydon (AKA Johnny Rotten).

Anarchy through Capitalism -on a flyer thrown out during a Kottonmouth Kings concert.

First we read, then we write. -Emerson.

All poets are damned. But they are not blind. They see with the eyes of angels. -William Carlos Williams: in the introduction to Ginsberg's Howl.

You gotta love that moment when the work is done and all that is left to do is drink your beer and sip your jager and enjoy what you've done. It's why I do and love it.

I refuse to be taken seriously. -me

You're no fun at all. :P Is it really all that easy to determine?
Stand before the 'door leading in' - stand before the door leading 'out'.........what do you see...what do you feel? See if you're perspective changes. Remember, what you see and act upon determines your destiny...so what side of the door do you choose to stand in front of? Did any of that make sense :lol:

speaking of no fun, this thread is for new people, there's nothing for you here. Get out or ima spank all of you. :P

Yes I do realise the irony of me posting here again, but I am providing a service.

Don't look at me like that, you know I'm right.

Ah fuck it I'm gonna get drunk.

I was dragged into hell by a poster called Cartesian Fart, whom I trusted at the time, but he abandoned this site long ago, so I assume he was but a devilish enticement into the circles of hell. :D

Yes, the devil takes on many usernames. For some, the name is Chance. But the end is always the same.

I wonder what circle of hell Dante reserved for the intellectually curious and creative.

Postby Lollipop King » Wed Feb 08, 2012 11:26 pm

Hi,
my on-line name is Lollipop King because I'm sweet, colorful, large and I love being licked...especially by chocolate princesses.

Recently I've been emasculated and feminized, returning me to my original state of helpless sexiness.

I've also learned, through experience, that if you ridicule and erase, it goes away....as if by magic.
I think censorship is a must, particularly when I am forced to confront hurts me feelings and makes little people sad.
Little people is what I call children.

I like children because they love to lick lollipops.

To be upfront and honest, I have to admit that all my posts are a gimmick and i do not really believe anything I post.
Sure, I come off as a racist, sexist, weak lollipop, with a fragile sugary center, but who in his right mind would actually think I am being serious?

I just want oh hang out, share my insecurities, learn how to be a real woman and just have fun....you know fun.

I don't know that is how i meant always the same... i mean that the earth can be above or below me either way I feel appropriately oriented... I don't know that what you said made sense... I would think that I tend to look at such as a painting in many ways yet my natural perception is such to see things neither left nor right or both in recognition of relativity.
