hence the conformity. Who doesn't cite monty python (esp. Holy grail/life of brian)
It would never occur to my mother to cite Monty Python.
So you're saying you can only be proud of something (great) of your own doing and be humble of something that is not? Then you can but spend your whole life in humility. Well, what kind of attitude is that?
You are awed at the size and complexity of the universe... yet fail to grasp the complexity of yourself -- those atoms and moleculles in such an unlikely combination --- that is Bozo Erectus
(Yes, I need more alcohol )
I call misanthropism! (because it feels right)
I'm about as important as I feel.
I'm just here as the token nonconformist.
Hmmm, it is difficult to describe my thoughts on things like this...
I often think it would be best if someone filmed my life from my point of view, with my thoughts as well, and then watched it after say, a month or a year.
If you did this to everyone, you could learn a lot more about how people think, and on a smaller scale, there could be more understanding.
But thats a different matter all together, and I am just dwelling too much tonight, and voicing my thoughts, in a way that doesn't really tell you how what I am thinking.
And I am not really making much sense right now, but oh well...
Humility is a good quality to have, least you come off as an arrogant selfish jerk with no consideration for other peoples feelings.
Hey Bozo, you know that song - Nothing Else Matters, by Metalica?
Well it's true, nothing else matters.
"Mattering" is always just a subjective opinion (though the religious may argue otherwise). All I can know in this lifetime is thru the experience of myself. I may not b able to make an inpact on the division rate among microorganisms on Zeptoon but that mattes not to be. I'm I was meant to make a difference there then I would have been born there, instead of here.
Humility can be attained by focusing on all the things we cannot do (control the weather or the score of a baseball game) and thinking "wow, I'm insiginificant", whereas I prefer to focus on the things I can do (like indirectly spurning you to start a meaningful(less) discussion on a meaningful(less) forum in cyberspace.
In 100 years we'll most likely all be dead so I figure we might as well spend our time happy and confident rather than worrying that 7 of Deep Space 9 may never be affected by our presence.
I plan one day to be the universe, So ego and humility are not diserable qualities.
Egad! You've fallen for the propaganda of the Whats!!
'Nothing lasts forever.'
'Nothing is worth dying for.'
'Nothing is more important than the mayo on my sandwich.'
See how pervasive the great Cult of Nothing is? You've got to fight it man!
If nothing is important and nothing matters then there is no morality.
People are the most important things in the goddamned universe. If you disagree, let all the murderers out of jail.
Whenever something really bad happens to me or someone i know. Or i did something stupid, I find looking at stars calms me down and puts things in perspective. I agree 100% bozo
If this isn't a play on the word "matter" then I don't see what you're saying.
I don't see how you relate "Truth" to "Morality" here.
It should have been, "Help! Help! I'm being oppressed !", anyway.
Too late! Sucker!
I wish I understood this.
Aside from that being beyond my power, it's blatantly a false dichotomy.
I wish I could be as consise as punkbass.
Hey I did it!
Not that it matters.
