Now I have a Pet. Ask me Anything.

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.

If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

Turtles don't really get lonely- they seem to tolerate each other's existence at best. Though they are stackable, piling up on each other to get the best basking spots. Goggle is good at clearing up my grumpy moods though, often brought upon by this place.

I've been guided somewhat by William Blake's quote: "I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create". Just change 'system' for 'style'. - Bill

Those animals are cute! They will also all be dead about the time Goggle is reaching adolescence.

Twice in the last week, I have noticed black squirrels. I think that they are black unless they are just extremely darkest brown.

Where did they come from? I have never noticed these kind of squirrels before. They are actually beautiful ~~ I suppose being that they are seemingly so rare. But I do not know for sure. Perhaps they are not rare at all.

Maybe there is still a chance that someday i will encounter a white crow or a crimson one.
Can you imagine THAT?!

I do not think so. I do not live around areas where that might happen.

They really were so pretty though because they were so rare - at least to me.
