      Your welcome! I don't even remember where I got that picture... I wish I could credit the artist. You could say that lady is my alter ego as a worshiper of Storm Spirit. =)

      Excellent question.

      I don't actually have any "hard" beliefs about what may or may not happen to our awareness after we die, so the technical answer would probably be "no". But in addition, when it comes to my religion, I don't separate objective existence with subjective mythology. So from a religious standpoint (that is, the standpoint of my whole life), the answer would be "yes".

      So..., yeah, yes and no, just to be COMPLETELY confusing. I don't really have the words to express these thoughts except in art.

      You did not know I was the infamous Sterling Archer? This only shows that I am the greatest spy in history ;)

      I watched it. All that science is beyond me, but I want to caution against the idea that there is a right or wrong picture of the world--science builds models, and each model is only as good as its usefulness, and this one too will be replaced one day when something more useful comes along.

      I'll watch it after work today. Thanks.

      The context in which things do not exist when not observed is simply in how we define and use the idea of existence. For instance, Bertrand Russell's teapot (as a metaphor for "god"): the burden of proving such a thing rests on the one making the claim about such a thing. We cannot and should not be making claims about (the existence of) things we know nothing about. I do believe in an objective reality, but not one distinct from what we know about the world (or in other words, "there is no ontology without epistemology.")

      Hah it's cool, I pretty much just walked out anyways. The whole things is just such a pain because all the people you usually agree with are suddenly blinded by their own righteousness and just don't get it.

      That's okay. I posted it in a different thread anyway.

      It's just worth posting in more than one place. :D

    20. Sha'irullah

    There's always a way, some have to work harder than others - but by doing so they come out stronger. It's a trend that I've noticed: People that have pulled themselves up from being completely money-broke ended up being better with money, saving more. People that have pulled themselves up from loneliness and low self esteem ended up becoming more confident and independent. People that have pulled themselves up from lack of motivation became better at time-management and more schedule oriented. Etc

    We all have our puzzles in life, figure out yours.
    Enjoy the journey. Grow. Become.
