Turtles elected our President? Being more of a tortoise myself, I lean towards a less aggressive, more laid back life style. Sort of a "Don't mess with me and I won't mess with you" way of life.

If we were, they wouldn't let us test for it.

The crew of Red Dwark wake up to find out they were just in the Matrix all along. Cat's real name is Dwayne Dibbley e.t.c

Makes sense to me on a certain level. Maybe that's why no one has memory of where they came from...or know where they are going. Sorta like in the movie classic "Dark City". Seems to me that some memory trace would be retained in all of us, if this was not so. But we all seem to be just random accidents of a programmed sex urge. That's just my transcendental pov.

Not much is more transcendental than programmed sex....biggrin.gif

True that!smile.gif
Here's one that will really shake your fancy. If physicists are correct. And we are all just "Star Stuff". Meaning born out of the remnant of exhausted stars...Supernovas, black holes & etc. Then we are nothing more than recompiled data, carbon and bitstreams anyway. Because if we all got compressed into black hole nothingness...a mush of math, matter and mass...along with our XBoxs, PS3s and etc...and recompiled in anotheruniverse or reality. How would the recompiling process distinguish the difference between the artificial Halo universe in the game from the one people were playing it in? Or could it just merge into the same?...?????? nothing but more ??????s down that wormhole.

I like this one to a point, until where we're squeezed into a black hole, sounds violet for sure...Not the way I want to go, unraveled into a billion tiny particles.
But I do like to think of ourself made out of the same matter that the universe is made out of with conscience..Us sending unman probes into the most farthest regions It's like the universe is self discovering it self !

It reminds me of those teen age years! biggrin.gif

Although most find this thought to be depressing, I don't.
I find the notion to be re-assuring, to be part of the everlasting cosmos, to be thrust back into the primordial soup for recycling.

Accepting the fact that none of us get out of this world alive is an important first step to wider truths.wink.gif

I find it reassuring and beautiful as well. Plus I think the definition of "alive" may be seen to extend beyond the circuits shutting down in our current corporeal forms, as suggested by your recycling comment.

Since current astrophysics knowledge dictates that dark energy makes up 70% of the universe, dark matter 25%, and everything we can actually see and touch including the planets, stars, and one another amounts to a measly 5%, I find it rather easy to believe that there could be a matrix or just about anything one could imagine.

We collapse into dark holes all the time but because everything is relative we don't notice it. wink.gif

I highlighted your very interesting point indeed. I reminded me of Frank Herbert's classic "Dune" series of books. Where people in the far distant future traveled via imagination & thought by folding space upon itself through "Spice" induced black holes. He was way ahead of his time...or maybe they were just memory fragments from a distant virtual reality in a videogame that got compressed into a black hole...and on into his matrix.biggrin.gif This is radical stuff.

Wouldn't it be ironic if all of this wasn't just some immense mining operation on a scale no one can imagine. Where something is mining for memories and pure bits of soul to fragment new universes. An endless cycle of compiling...decompiling...recompiling to sift as many memories as possible through the multiverse seive

No way we are in the Matrix. If so the movie Matrix would have never come out in the first place.

Plus no way Matrix 2 and 3 would be so terrible if we were indeed in the Matrix.

Also movies would not be so long if we were in a Matrix.

If the answer is 42, the question "What is the question?" remains.

Douglass Adams was right!

As I recall it, the actual question made sense in base 13.

NO ONE should get married before 30...in fact, it should be a law.biggrin.gif

If it was as hard to GET married as it is to get divorced, no one WOULD get married.

There should be classes, exam to get married too, you're getting a legal document paper saying you're legally bonded to some one else you should under stand the laws a bit better..

43 and never been married smile.gif maybe some day when I'm understood a bit better.

All I can say about marriage is what my daddy told me long ago:
When it's good, there is nothing better.
When it's bad, there is nothing worse.


And I would add:
Marry for $$$ or sex, otherwise skip it and go fishing.

I find the old adage about being right or happy but never both at once to be apt also.

Marraige is very simple: HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE.

Also dont forget the 3 rings of marraige: the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.

The best advice I can give to anyone - let the wife talk. Listen and don’t offer any advice, just encouragement. It is the nature of the male to want to fix any and everything. Females need to rant; they aren’t asking you to fix anything and they don’t want you to fix anything. Just listen and keep your mouth shut unless THEY ask for your advice. This simple piece of advice will go a long way toward keeping happiness in the home.

Sound advice.
However, if that doesn't work, marital problems can always be cured with a shovel and a bag of lime.

Married when I was 23. Still married 15 years later. Some of us are just better at it than others, it seems.
