I thought the members of the Narcissist Society would have flamed out by now, but instead they have only defined themselves and grown in numbers. They also keep asking for proof that they are arrogant, sanctimonious bags of wind, belittling, denigrating and insulting people. Again, all one has to do is read what they have posted here and other threads to get all the data they need to shore up this egotistical behavior at the expense of others. Yes, it is objectional data since it is from them. If I had a magic wand I would wave it in front of my monitor and this thread and say loudly, Narcissist be gone!
DoingOk, thanks for the pictures and trying to keep the thread on track for Glenee. I hope other owners will still share their opinions with us.
Since we have thrown so many off-track things into this thread, I thought I would add to the hyperbole. Thomas Nagel, philosopher, has a career that now spans fifty years of publication. It can, however, all be understood as structured around a central distinction between subjective and objective points of view of a subject matter.
Nagel thinks that each of us, owing to our capacity to reason, instinctively seeks a unified worldview. However, if this aspiration leads us to believe that there is one way to understand our intellectual commitments, whether about the external world, knowledge, or what our practical and moral reasons ought to be then this leads us into error. For contingent, limited and finite creatures such as ourselves no such unified world view is possible. That is because ways of understanding are not always better when they are more objective.
What does a burned finger feel like? What does the blueness of the sky look like? What does nice music sound like? Describe God?
I'll try it one more time (waving immaginary magic wand), "Narcissist be gone!
