Hmm...so, I can begin my stint of interaction in here with the topic, Why am I like I am?, and go right round in a circle of interaction to the post 'The dilution of me'. The next topic is 'The dilemma of crossing the bridge, or what moral code do you follow', which is a lateral thinking problem in its own way...and goes right round to the post offering another lateral thinking puzzle, both about things being killed, either by our own hand or by accident.
I go to the topic of clarifying what I am doing here...to the topic of emotional reactions to things we favour and return to over and over again (the movie topic that got moved)...the topic of meditating to discover how to get rid of attachments to things in our mind...the topic of translating ancient psychological/philosophical texts into music based upon math...a topic about what our ancients have recorded that we are capable of in being happy in life...and then a topic exposing the actions of folk who try to keep others down by having their own issues cloud their judgements...and end that topic by deciding that to do away with the harm that can become a two-way street, it is better that one be removed from the scene so that true happiness can be found...it lasted a week as true happiness and another journey to extend myself was easily found, and in being back, now I just ignore what someone presents their problem as because that's how they thrive in life: creating problems others can decide if they want to deal with it or not. Some 'children' are best ignored completely.
In the dilution of me and in my poser to Tom about the lateral thinking puzzle, I am repeating myself from where I began, and in all the posts I made connected to my topics and in other's topics, folk just aren't sure what it is that I have done...they can't see what I have done...no amount of explanation will do anything for anyone in what I have done...what I have presented. Let me present your entire response to me:
“I guess knowing what we are connected to means we certainly identify what something is, otherwise it is all arbitrary and it doesn't matter what someone else sees as we know what we are doing according to our own time-frame. ”
This is a great description of what I call the arbitrary Drew. We know what we know certainly, but that knowing is relative to the knowing of other people we interact with. We have to explain what we know to them, they do not always ‘just get it’ right away. We have to put them in position to see what we saw, and go from there! Common sense knowledge is shared common sense. It takes work!
The definition of the Inner Space board is: For discussions on all matters relating to personal development, religion, philosophy, psychology and so on.
I presented this definition and let discussions go where they may...and they didn't go far at all. How can I explain what this board is for when folk can't relate to the definition at all? How can I explain what my topics and posts are when they are parts of the definition in action? How can I explain a mirror to someone who has never seen one before? And what happens when I warp that mirror a little and show them their altered reflection?
I can't...so I accept that I only did all I did for me...a bit of fun to test my ability to make sense of who I am in my surroundings...and to know that I can be standing right in the middle of something and performing a magic trick that is so fast that none see it...I ran on the spot without going anywhere and the spot didn't move either. I tried to stop folk to have a look and they beat me up because I am on a frozen lake and running on water. I tried to slow down but started going backwards because the lake froze while it was flowing downstream. And folk looking on thought I was sinking when in fact I was slipping away into the distance. And then I appear right behind them and ask "Hey, what's that guy doing?"
How can I explain any of that to anyone's satisfaction, Eddie? Impossible. Impossible.
I do like it in here but I came here to have a break from the Mystery board as a little stuffiness occurred which I thought was a shame, and it would stifle progress - which it did - and it took over 4 months for a settlement to occur. It should have taken a couple of days at most...oh well. I brought 'me' and what I am over here to keep my hand in at how I do things...now I am back over there and expressing myself again in new directions that hopefully continue making others try to extend themselves with what they investigate. I made a topic on Misc about Magical trolls and where to find them, and only myself and trolls are in there, despite it having over a thousand views, and the last post shows how folk can deal with trolls with a simple post with a simple title and folk don't have to read any of what a troll writes...they just know. I had fun in here corralling a few folk and identifying them...a few disguises they have but they are all one and a little fuzzy around the edges. Yeah, just one layer of what I've done these past 4 months, Eddie...I guess there were about 7 layers actually.
Well, I'm still going to hang around as there is heaps to do in here but explaining myself? I don't think I can. I just go with the flow...feet planted firmly on the bed and sway against the current...sometimes as a duck lol...floating above or diving deep ;)
