Burp

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.

Hmmmm, just saw this:
An irony I just recently realized is they woo you away by whetting and feeding your Why? appetite, and then they insult you when you expect an answer that actually satisfies it. Edit: That, or they are trying to give you hints to solve the riddle because they don't want to spoil it for you.

Now, I believe I know who you are.
A change of monikers to escape the focus, and a past.

Why? is a human question.
There is no why outside human brains.
'Why' expresses a need to be given a purpose and meaning.
'Meaning' is all around you, if you properly define the word....and 'purpose' is something only you can provide for yourself.

if your purpose is something other than seeing the world as it is, then you do not belong in philosophy, but in spirituality or religion.
If you need another to validate or give you a purpose then you are asking for a leader, a mentor, a lover, or a father.
To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods

I gave my virtual history in the Username change request thread. I am no longer She™️ anywhere… not trying to escape anything. It’s just an old version. I changed my mind in too many ways. Different species now, so to speak.

As for the rest of what you said… if you just wanna make sh** up, then you are not a lover of wisdom. Philosophers are those who want to get at the real. We never fully get at it. There’s always More to discover.

I have an appreciation for folks with a certain set of thought-untangling skills… seeing as mine come at me so fast & furious they collide & twist & before you know it … rats & spiders everywhere … It’s embarrassing when it comes time for expressing them.

I have not stayed physically in shape & I practice hygiene when I have to go somewhere (rare) or can’t stand it anymore. I am here strictly to scratch nerd itches among those of similar bent.

I don’t trot. I prance. Get it straight.

An ancient cow.

Your memory must be as bad as mine.

Sometimes a blessing.

Don't know what kind of female...but definitely a girl.
The way you post is a giveaway.


On a scale of 1-5, 1 being “not a wit” and 5 being “not a planck sphere” - how much does it matter?
