Introduce yourself here <-----

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Hi, my name is Cam.

I am new to the internet, and this is my first post. I have never belonged to an internet community before, and a freind of mine suggested this one, given that I love Philosophy. Somehow it just seemed appropriate.

I am relatively a beatnick, enthralled with music, poetry, ineffable debate, and the works of Edgar Allan Poe. I will try to limit my pretension (within reasonable bounds), and in return expect to be forgiven for any gross spelling/grammer/punctuation errors.

Returning after a decently long hiatus.

My name is Chris. I live in Denver, Colorado.

And currently I'm posting because I just got internet access at work and don't have enough work to fill the day.

Here's to hoping they don't catch me.

I am new and I registered this morning, but am posting now in the afternoon.

I've come here to be enlightened from your wisdom, even if I don't agree with all of it.

Although I joined a few weeks ago I have found that my schedule has not allowed me to post on any kind of regular basis. Things have changed for the better.

Greetings to all.

something completely different

Postby Calvin » Sun Jul 24, 2005 2:06 pm

Hello. My name is Boris & 'm coming from Slovenia (enter this word in MS Encarta and you'll find it). 've got some education in philosophy and sociology (teachers degree), but who doesn't? The main reason, i'm writing to you is something completely different.

Before year ago we have opened a philosophy forum, which was quite a succes. It has quite a lot of members, which some of them are more or less active. But there's a one little problem – we're chatting in slovene language, our mother toungue, so that made us not a very large community (in comparison to those languages with more speakers). And after a time we get quite known to each other and, as consequence, bored. So, we run out of fresh blood and that's why we are desperetely looking for a new one…

You are wellcomed to join us on the philosophy site Filozofi. We've collected some usefull links to look more attractive ( HERE ) and opened a special room for philosophy chat in English (over HERE ).

So – don't wait for tomorrow, join now and you'll recive a special amount of bright ideas, imported from Plato's universum, linked only and only to you ;)

Hello everyone and one and all, a brief emergence of self

I've been hovering over this site for a number days. Was clued up to it by word of mouth ~ enthusiasm like that just gets under my skin. I can't help my self. And I'm sure it was pointed.

Having lost most (if not all) of my convictions in recent years - as a result of nervous actions, I'm beginning to select pieces of climbing frame for to lend me back the way up there, anew.

I'm glad we can't tell how the weather'll be, is my start.

A pleasure to meet you all when the clouds permit. Bright stars

Obligitory introduction post:

Hi I'm Ert and I think about things sometimes. Often, I have thoughts that are (in my opinoin) not entirely unworthy of expression. My philosophical resume' consists of smoking an awful lot of pot with some phenomenolgists, reading (and probably horribly misinterpreting) a few philosophers, taking Phi 101, having a past that I both cherish and regret, hitchiking, walking around, figureing out what logic is, driving the highway, engaging in activities that legal counsul has advised me not to talk about too much, and looking at what's in front of me.

I've posted quite a bit already so you may think that this is another afterthought post, but it isn't. I am a shy person in some ways and in order for me to open up and post about myself as me, I kinda have to participate a little first.

At this point I know that my reading is sorely behind the curve, so I will most likely pretty much confine myself to babble, the unmoderated philosophy forum and rants until I feel like I can contribute and get something out of the more acedemic forums. But I make no promises, I only try to predict my future behavior as honestly as I feel like at any given time.

Don't be tentative ert.. we already have one of those :D

No but seriously.. don't feel scared to post in the philosophy section just cause you're not well read, no one will bite your head off.. at least not too many people.

I do not fear my head getting bitten off, I fear my head deserving to get bit off and not.

don't know what to say. UNI is an alias. If I say something good (or bad) some of you might not believe me so I say you all seem to be an interesting bunch and thank you for the space.
