Philosophy For Us Dummies

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 strongly suggest having the wine first.

Excellent advice.

Don't be afraid...it's not as scary as you think.
And I'm not a teacher - I'm an artist. :lol: I try to paint a picture. We can go flying into one, you know.
We just need to remember to bring our multi-colored paints with us - ALL of them.
Things just need to be painted as IS...or as close to reality as we see it. That way aren't we closer to *your* god?

I wouldn't say that the concept of a god is silly. I may be wrong here but if we humans imagined and dreamed it up, perhaps it does have some basis in reality. It is just the way we choose to conceive of that possible Reality and paint its picture that can get silly. Sometimes we just feel the need to slop so much paint indiscriminately on that canvas that it becomes almost impossible to see. Instead of looking at the canvas and allowing something to reveal itself to us slowly, we have to use up all of that paint and all of that canvas and slop, slop, slop, slop, slop!

Where is my mind at the moment? How can I even answer such a question? Or maybe I just did above. :evilfun:

Well... along with him and LJ/CLD we are on a 'dummy' roll #-o
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?
