z my above is only a neutral statement (to me). it is an invocation of my belief that assumptions should be examined carefully and that they should be shared. i find it quite profound, actually, perhaps comparable (but not identical) to some of the primary assumptions in Buddhist thought (as far as my shallow understanding of it goes). 060511

beguiling smiling z, if i harangue you about the_facility_of_simplistic_responses it is because your understanding about these things is "anything but shallow". since i'm never sure if i use that confounded phrase correctly, allow me to clarify. you clearly are a person of depth, and i find you much more illuminating when you elaborate or - rare though it may be in you - ramble. i know you are a fan of minimalism, but some of us need more, and you have much to offer. 060512

z phenomenology attempts to make connective tissue (or at least describe the construct that represents connection) between intentional mind artifacts like meaning and objects in the physical world. at different times people working in this model have claimed that this is both descriptive of an actual metaphysical connection and merely a model of our cognitive process. i find the former in it's expanded version belabored and am, therefore, more inclined toward the latter.

moving the emphasis of metaphysics from the nature intrinsic in things to the intention that i bring to my relationship to them is very rewarding to me. i am left free (er) to examine what i know about them with less clutter and distraction than otherwise. martin buber, in i and thou, get's at this emphasis on the relationship and it's nature too. it is this re framing of meaning that, for me, comes closer to what i feel when i know something than most other ways of modeling reality.

hsg we print this agreement upon our collective consciousness, know? so then, yes. let us spread happiness. design seeds of good intent. winds will carry. then we may dance in propose`d happiness.

if our imagination has no limits not because of many dimensions but because it has no prerequisite dimension, then in that quality is its point. the tiniest dot. the seed. empty sorta. cold. absolute zero. no vibration. therefore no space.

music is to fill the void. it is all a dance. by one pattern or another, beyonduality and other superstitions, it is all a dance or it is imagination left with the feeling of blue balls. and we cant have that now can we? no.

if i may quote anais_nin "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

we shall dance to fill the void. be it laughtor sorrow... it'soul good! deep inside we know better then to be bored. we will always return to that place of imaginetic origin. by prayer, by art, by competition. all extremes lead us home.

a cosmic breath.

to fill the void, follow thisimplessthan:)
1 exhale all the air out your lungs.

2 in the midst of extremeventual panic, you will bear a unique opportunity to gather your own attention with a considerable amount of leverage. take this time to remind yourself that all these things, thoughts, object&etc are merely vibrations of things you bounced off your imagination.

3 play and learn to smile.

pSyche Emptiness eats people.

It devours them from inside out.
It starts in the middle and doesn't finish until it has eaten everything,and then it is still not finished.


What can you do with it?
YOu can only feed it.

Aw-shucks
Dear Stephshine,

its better to feel pain than emptiness...
it's important to feel in life...
pain is a big part of it...
if you don't feel the pain, then how can you know the happiness?

this is not from a sadist view point although i know pain too well...

emptiness ... (or feeling flat) is the worst thing that can happen to you because you have closed your eyes to the miracle of life.

Have a good evening x

We were given a dazzling range of emotions and I think it's all right to experience them.

Emptiness and pain included.

sameolme I save up my empties and when I've got enough, I lash them together to make a raft. I float away on the vast empty
ocean. Clouds above adorn the empty sky.
Void in every direction, inside and out.
