Yea my mind goes from zero to pervert in a hurry. It seemed we were both saying essentially the same thing.

I think we are in the same ball park on the common good idea.  I just get offended by the use of the term socialist by republicans.  Since I did not see Prince leave the scene I don' t know what to call it.  That is funny that you got the sexual honey message though.

Thank you for taking the time to not only read my post, but also to comment. I don't think it's a hustle to hint that I am wrong often, I'm just around myself more than others. I am flattered that you think I have some skill as a writer (I enjoy writing very much).

I agree with you about war...I can't find any art in it either. As far as Prince and the jar of honey, I always just thought that he and his partner were into some fun sexual stuff. Now maybe that is just a facade they created to maintain their public image, but I think they were just into each other in a very physical way.

I agree that disassociation is anti-social, but I have trouble calling myself a resource for the common good. If what you mean is that through free association and exchange with other willing individuals society benefits as a whole, than I wholeheartedly agree. To do otherwise would be in opposition of our desire or imperative to survive. Becoming a "resource" for the common good seems to be a side effect of this desire, less than the stated or main goal. I may also misunderstand your original point (trust me, I wasn't being modest about being wrong...it happens often, so feel free to correct me.

Thanks again. I am grateful for your comment and enjoy the discussion.

It's too bad I didn't subscribe to your blog before I lost the entire comment I wrote on it.  Now I have to recapture what I said.  At least i feel the need to.

 

I think that you have a very good skill in writing and that is good.  It may be a hussle for you to comment that you are not as smart.

 

First I will try to give you my reasoning to the why question.  It may seem rather gray to say this but we (humans) are resources.  If we do not find a reason to use ourselves, someone or something will.  That comment stings a little doesn't it?  I am sure you can create other notions to this but in its essence it is true.  For us today I believe that we humans need to learn the term respect in yourself and others to be able to cope with what is.  That is to say, if you know "the what" then how do you cope with "the what".  In order to cope you must have respect in someway.  In simpler terms it is "how do you survive".  Survival experts will often say you must keep a positive attitude to survive.  You must essentially throw out the term "Why" by making yourself feel worth saving.  You have probably seen many examples of people disrespecting each other.  It is a sight of verbal or physical war.  When people reference tactics of war as the "Art of War" I tend to cringe.  I don't think there is an art of war, it's is just war.  Two people or parties disrespecting each other enough to crush there character, belief, or body.  Self defense is something different being that someone's or some group's greed could drive one to even the score to preserve life (survival).  That said it is not art, it is tactics of survival.  Art does not defame for the purpose of disrespect or war.  Art communicates respect in self and others.  So why are we?  The "why question" is a slippery enigmatic question without having the ability to cope with the face of "what" by way of respect for yourself and others.

 

I do not know if this is correct or not but I have heard that the body replaces every cell on a cycle of ten years.  If that is the case we continue to evolve with different stardust.

 

Your comment on Prince leaving an interview in the presense of a jar of honey makes me think of why he may have done that.  It is my opinion that he left to preserve his definition being more than common.  I think he put a stigma on the jar of honey (food), seeing it as common and drawing attention away from his essence of being.  I think it is what is wrong  with a lot of us.  (sorry for the change in text the computer is not functioning the way I want)

People put a lot of value into money and fame to produce for what they know as success.  I tend to think of my self as a resource for the common good.  It is what a lot of republicans term as "socialist"  To me it is like a republican making water seem bad by the way they call it water.  The attitude of dissassociation is really "Antisocial". 

 

At the begining of your blog I was going to say you need a Partner, if you know what I mean, but then I saw that you already have one.  You are a thinker for sure.

LOL...sorry. You know it's bad when I cut and paste the link to my blog, but I'm too lazy to just cut and paste the contents.
