  • @Indrid-Cold I suppose TWS might indeed mainly be populated by random teenagers and nondescript types, but I made the experience that among the more active users there are deeply interested teenagers and thoughtful and funny adults. My bests to @Kana, @Zen, @Adyyan, @Durwin, @Lurker, @mr-h for their entertaining / deep topics and remarks.

    There's a saying in hinduism, "we are spiritual beings, having humanly experiences"
    which sums up the karmic and eternal nature of of humankind, and even when your body decays, you become part of something whole, you become one with the nature. So religiously speaking, our body is just a vessel for our eternal soul, and to elevate to a higher level of consciousness, is what is called MOKSHA, and once we achieve this state, everything else is obsolete, and that my friend is the goal of life
    Happiness=Moksha



  • There is this very prevalent view, that we are "inside" our heads, that basically our brain makes us who we are. I don't believe that anymore, not even from a scientific standpoint.

    If you ever were in love, you probably know this feeling, that you really like the way, that she (put in your preferred pronoun here) walks, the way she talks, the way she smiles, the way she touches you. Now I'm not disregarding the other things you value in her, like your shared worldview, and common interests and how she treats other people. But you don't just love her values and opinions either. You love her as a whole.

    As a matter of fact, the way she walks, is not at all located in the brain. It is located in the whole nervous system stretching throughout the body. That's right, her legs do the walking all by themselves! 😉 Even the nerves in the spinal column only play a small role. Really, the brain only sends the signals: walk and stop. So really body and mind are one unity. All that we are makes us who we are, not just some parts, not just the mind.

    It is no wonder thus, that even the catholic church says, that when we die and the soul leaves the body, we are incomplete, we are lacking, until the resurrection of the body. Now you might believe in a life after death or you might not, but to me one thing is for certain:

    We are embodied creatures, and our body is good and right, and we should and cannot be without it. It just makes no sense. We are here on earth to embody what we believe is right. We are here to do the best we can and as I wrote in another topic, I don't believe that love is possible without sacrifice. And our bodies are exactly what makes us able to sacrifice and love.



  • @pe7erpark3r Well. And here I was believing //talkwithstranger.com was mainly populated by random teenagers and nondescript types, and then I get a thoughtful reply like that. Unfortunately, I'm too jaded to agree with such a romantic view. But yeah. There's something more than materialistic brain stuff going on for sure: I refer you to the writings of Bernardo Kastrup.

    Needless to say, I disagree with this dualistic worldview 😉 But I don't disagree with the notion of us being spiritual beings, at all. Let me clarify that christian resurrection is not a pure reanimation of dead bodies, but a whole new creation of a new spiritual body. And with that comes a life in god, so this concept is quite similar to the hinduistic notion of a higher level of consciousness. The only real difference is that christianity emphasizes you and me as persons being transcendant and not dissolving.

    Seems very interesting this Mr. Kastrup. I'll look into that if I ever find the time 😉 .

    Tbh me being here is kind of a social experiment. So far IRL I haven't been the type to even express an opinion (unless completely technical). I decided that here I was going to try and express who I am and what I really think, even though there is always the temptation of hiding behind "being right" lurking.

    You'd think, that if I write long posts like this one, most people would click away to the next page as fast as they can, but surprisingly it seems that many do like what I write. Thus I conclude that I am not doing so bad at showing my true colors, or else they certainly would be bored.

    Concerning the romantic view, I suppose my choice of words was prolly not the best, because I don't believe I am truly coming from a romantic position. But I have no more time to explain what I really mean today. So I'll continue tomorrow. Until then
