    Capability does not equal result though so you can still have massive potential but no realised result.

    Yes that is true but where do you draw the line between the functions of the brain itself and the functions of the musculature and synapses?

    How far you can jump is in part defined by your brain but it is also dependant on your musculature. Which part is which? What's the ratio? Is this where BK intelligence come in? If so then what part of the function is that described/ measured by the BK intelligence?

    Too many tangents. I am confused.

    What do you define as intelligence?
    How is it in the object?
    Why can intelligence not be measured? (esp in the light that your introvertedness is in fact measured by the MBTI and that's a facet of the same locale as your intellect.)

    Okay how did you get from your definition of intelligence to religion?
    Most odd.

    Besides that piece ends in ridiculous amounts of assumption. A person can love despite having selfish wants. It's not entirely dependant on that person.

    I'm sorry ol' bean but I find that article flawed in many respects.

    Who has said a word about religion? Not me.
    When I was fifteen I read Jiddu and found out he speaks the truth.
    I have not seen any reason to change my mind.
    Do not give up so easily.
    Read Bertie Russel. He says the same thing as Jiddu.

    If the English boys had read Bertie they would not have been in a rush to die in the WW I for nothing.

    Bertie Russel? Do you mean Bertrand Russel?
    Or do you really mean this chap?


    Honestly though I find the article you quoted full of wholes. I have read some buddhist writings before and I always find fault with their underlying concepts regarding how people and the world work. It just doesn't hold together for me except as part of a religious dogma and I am stoically against submitting to such rules sets.

    I should have preferred the picture of Bertie or Jiddu.

    I have nothing against gay porn as long as I do not need to see it.

    Whatever. I do not like him all the same.
    I like your avatar though. It describes you in a nutshell.
