    My Strange Addiction: Tlc (season 1 - 3)

    this posting doesn belong in this section. I didn realize it was posted in I am very philosophical. It's very tempting to be curious about 'how weird' and wild people can be. These are obviously very extreme cases but it also reminds of the fragility of who we are as humans. The...

    Accepting The Inevitable

    I'm losing my hearing. I will turn 59 this summer, roughly when my father started to lose his. I have a lot of his dna, including his love of music. All of my media entertainment dates back to the 70's. Until now, this month, with my tax return, I unleashed the domino effect of...

    There have been these phases in my life when I have been at my philosophical best. I don't see it as an advantage. I have this detached phases. I can't explain it. It is just that my world come at a stand still at times. I can't feel anything. I can't do anything. My mind is...

    I Was A Kid With Deep Thoughts

    My parents (rip) had a hard time understanding why I'd rather be reading my older brother's college text books than playing. I read Sartre, Camus, Dostoevsky, Salinger. I was about 11 yrs, old. Blew my mind. Throughout my adulthood, folks would sometimes say "You know? You...

    I Went To A Party

    The existentialists were in the corner of the room, smoking. The Christians were in the bathroom, washing their hands. The Platonics were observing the philodendrons in their essence. Someone who looked, to me, like Heidegger, was banging his head against a wall. "So many words...

    And Then There Was Nothing

    Every Saturday night since I found EP, back in July of 2010, I've been here pounding away at the keyboard (first my droid, then in April my laptop), pouring my heart out. Every month, every week, I've seen the activity on my profile drop down like leaves in October. Is it my...

    To Think Or Not to Think?

    I don't really know what to write here, I haven't given it much though, which is unusual for me 'cause I usually think very deeply into the most insignificant things, not to mention the big things.  Being spontaneous is not what I'm known for, while my mind works very...

    The Second Self

    There's a book titled "The Second Self" that I read about 25 years ago. It's about how we interact with computers. They tested babies, teens and adults, and the conclusion is we are wired for this. If anyone ever asked me what was the most outstanding things I had ever witnessed...
