For two points, name the philosopher who might reply to the opening question with:

'It is neither good nor evil, but beyond these things'

Note: this question is for the novice philosopher. Intermediates and masters please do not answer.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Wait, What! - MagsJ

Which we all do.

Nature, Gnosis and DNA.

I am not sure what you are saying with your last.

What type of involvement with murderer sub-groups of thieve sub groups are you thinking of/

We do not usually know who is in that sub-group until after they kill or rob.

I can see your words working after the crime, no0t before.

They can work.. with foresight and forward-thinking.. I think it’s called ‘knowing better’ lol, and so being our own god should ideally entail that. There’s many a time, when such instincts have prohibited me from coming to harm/other’s stupidity, or getting involved with crims and sinners.. so before any fact can become a reality and then subsequently a negative.

We have to be our own god, because.. down here, god is unavailable.. he can’t come to the phone right now, so all we have is ourselves.. and how could that ever be a bad thing? in looking out for the Self, so not an evil thing at all.

I was confirming my own convictions, so, glad I’m on the right track.

I’d been looking for a guru for many years, and eventually had to become one unto myself.. otherwise I’d have been waiting forever.
