    In the usual spirit of sharing, I present the top 10 questions on my mind:

    1. Is there any way God can be portrayed which doesn't make him look selfish?

    2. Will Transitioning affect my ability to date women in a negative fashion?

    3. What should my stance be on the subject of mass religious animal sacrifice?

    4. How does one explain the unexplainable?

    5. How important is being a good storyteller in daily life?

    6. Why is it that whenever I link a video of two people being in sync and being happy with each other, people call it awkward? What is the epitome of two people connecting?

    7. What will I shape up to be in my road to eventual progress?

    8. What would RF think if I ever listed my 6 or 7 pages of triggers and how it affects my dating life?

    9. Why oh why, does the universe exist in such a way that the best people aren't single and have already been snatched up?

    10. What is my natural smell as a human being, considering I've read about how everyone kind of has a natural smell?

    Great questions! Fascinating to read them. Thanks so much for sharing. It's always interesting to learn how someone thinks.


    EDIT: Three questions I have honestly been thinking about today. (1) Should I buy some chocolate ice cream, (2) How does one demonstrate top-down causation -- not just correlation, but causation -- in emergent properties, and (3) why do we humans so often find it so hard to keep sexual relationships simple, honest, and healthy?

    Here's a few thoughts:

    Yes: God is love. Love must love. Love means always putting the long term benefit of the other ahead of one's own. Manifest God (Christ, Prophet, Avatar) suffers for creation to lift it up/redeem it.

    How many women are attracted to other women vs how many women are attracted to men?

    With laughter as this rendering of Hafiz says:

    What is Laughter? What is Laughter?
    It is God waking up! O it is God waking up!
    It is the sun poking it sweet head out
    From behind a cloud
    You have been carrying too long.
    Veiling your eyes and heart.

    It is Light breaking ground for a great Structure
    That is your Real body— called truth.

    It is happiness applauding itself and then taking flight
    To embrace everyone and everything in this world.

    Laughter is the polestar
    Held in the sky by our Beloved
    Who eternally says,
    "Yes, dear ones, come this way,
    Come this way toward Me and Love!
    ...

    Yes but it's inexact as the same-gender community exists in such a way that it isn't as selective, from what I can tell.

    1. Model your deity after the best human examples - e.g., the purported egolessness of a Buddha.
    2. Joke question.
    3. What's your stance on meat eating?
    4. Through experiencing it, which may explain it to yourself, but forget about "proving" it to others.
    5. Important if it makes you happy and pleases your audience.
    6. Jealousy?
    7. Depends on your viewpoint and the methods employed.
    8. Please. Just please.
    9. Pathetic fallacy. Or make your search more intense and specific.
    10. Juniper, sage and pine

    Yes

    I don't know.

    That's up to you.

    One can't.

    It's not. But it is fun time to time. It can get old though.


    Perhaps there is a lot of people with Aspergers that view your links.

    Most of the time the epitome is lies.

    Solely up to you.

    If you truly have that many triggers you need therapy. Take it from someone who has a lot of triggers.

    Because life sucks, then you die. The End.

    No way I could know that without a sniff. A persons smell has many determining factors including their immune system, bathing habits, humidity, temp, etc which all effect the different kinds of bacteria that grow on your skin which produce aromas on their own as well. There is a reason why sourdough bread taste better from San Francisco than Denver for example.

    Why would you want to date women in a negative fashion? Does it really matter what they're wearing?
