What are you doing?

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.

I mean, my mind lends itself very well for detective work.
Have you ever done those detective tests online? They're funny.
Some of them somewhat challenging even.
But the same mindset is useful in other things, like stock trading and reading between the lines of political narratives for upcoming events. The key is to not be able to take appearances at face value.

It makes me a weird person. I always see whats behind someones eyes and this is so thoroughly tiresome (because nearly everyone is in constant agony over themselves on some level) that Ive gotten used to blocking it out and just playing dumb.

An eviler man than myself would have used all this psychic x-ray vision early on to establish an empire of gambling and prostitution and blackmail. I think this is why Pezer wanted to meet up with me initially. To do some damage.
A girl once tried to get me to be her pimp, too. I had two very qualified employees ready. But I felt I should keep on with my studies.

The problem is you have to believe in the law you enforce.
I can only police my own freedom.

Laws aren't even real man.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Just fed the cat, then letting the cat out into the garden.. so opened the door, looked up, and stared right into a large Summer sun.. the retinas took a slight hit from that faux pas, but very short-lived.

The sun was so unusually large that I thought it might be Jupiter, but Jupiter is below the horizon here.. it might be it’s rays making it look so, in a sunny yet precipitous-laden sky.. like sky and sea have been reversed.

A cyan-blue dot below the sun..

What is that large mauve halo that surrounds the small cyan-blue dot..

Oh, it’s moved again.. it’s from the camera..

Had a late-night coffee, so as to stay awake till dawn, but it doesn’t seem to have the desired effect that I wanted it to.. oh caffeine buzz, why do you forsake me at a time like this. :angry-fire:

The former was my intent, the latter.. for my amusement, so the word “revelation” being relevant here - you are the book of revelation.. unto yourself.

Actually, this is more like something Fixed would post. It sounds "deep" but, well, what's it about?

We'll need a context.

That and then take it to the philosophy board. :wink:

Hahaha! ..but it’s something Mags said :-s

Mags has said many (esoteric) quips like this over the years.. sorry you missed them.

We'll need a context.

That and then take it to the philosophy board. :wink:

Self-awareness.. as it currently stands? well that was my intention of context, meant.

Perhaps we are all esoteric beings when grounded in the Now, and not the Was or Would/Could.. perhaps.
