Philosophy is not for the faint of heart

Philosophy is not for the faint of heart

Postby Meno_ » Sat Mar 31, 2018 5:50 pm

Philosophy is really the digs unearthed by brawn and muscle
Incorporates a lot of nasty stuff underneath

Sinew and bloody entrails served one war another
that's what's left of his memory
Poor kid had to have mom and dad somewhere or brother looking for him for ever, thought missing,

Philosophy don't mind talking about you if you feel like that's true , then it becomes you so,
It don't care what you think other than making note: and philosophy does no hurt if hurt can be said a padding observance of a casual drop of some vague mistaken anecdote perhaps for others ears, deceptively and curtly, as if for your ears only, knowing the means of consequence,


What would've dear Machievelli say to those naive teary eyed who felt a sting of hatred every time some on harshly decried, a vagery, Ad Hominem, shame of our gathered who bespoke to inflame the passions of deprived and depraved .minds, whereas dear blood of our loved splashed upon those white marble temples of justice and hope,

Filling the air with the sulphur of demonic retribution as to fill a cover with its venomous mist in order to run to a supposed higher ground?

Is this the best defense against the legions of horror, of monsters of depravity?

Nay say some far away siren, a backward glanced sphinx guarding the habit of a prophetess, nay, do not fear yea children of a paradise lost in the rubble of what was once so shiny and glimmerry in the sun. Its pitty to hear things as if they truly were,

There, and see that mirage which has stood its ground,
Hold fast against that glare, tight now against the bosom of thine beloved, as if this be to the last.

It's easier to win a battle than it is to conquer one' self.

Especially if not behind a shield but a computer.



I know Mowk at times I'm such a dork. Hope You see this probably not. But it straightens requisite levels maybe, in part.

don't you ever want to give it a rest? Is being, becoming, is. perhaps it is time to cooperate, what ever the fuck that is, is being and becoming? like anyone can know better than is.

yet cooperation is likely just as great a toll gate.

Sorry Meno, the bad advice stems more from my state of mind then recognition of any fault in yours.

I like folk music. Particularly fond of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, and a levy gone dry, but I've never driven a chevy.

Roots.

Music is an intriguing expression.

And the back story of these musicians is pretty cool too. Individually and in combination. Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendricks, James Taylor, Jim Croce, Steven Stills, David Crosby, Niel Young, I'm all in.

Hi Meno_ :evilfun:

It's easier to win a battle than it is to conquer one' self.



Conquering one's self consists of many battles being won along the way...but not necessarily winning the war.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant
