    Can anyone explain what's up with wildcat always making these cryptic posts?

    Direction is an illusion, but so is the contemplation of its illusory state...
    Not really.

    At what point does this conversation turn into pure energy? And then what will be the definition for that?

    Wow. Can you people (sassafrassquatch, LadyJaye) really not understand this? I think you must be kidding, perhaps making fun of wildcat's unusual speech patterns (and that's not very nice). It's practically right in front of you everyday. Seriously, that seems a bit like using something for several years, and not knowing what color or shape it is, except you've been using this practically since you were born.

    If there are really so many people who don't see the obvious, then that makes me nervous. I wonder if that's why he keeps asking these questions...

    It just sounds like wildcat speaks in koans. I don't know if (s)he doesn't speak english well or is just being eccentric.

    i honestly am having a hard time figuring out what wildcat's trying to say. is it that arrows are subjective? they only exist relative to points in space? or to observers or something?

    if so, why choose such cryptic writing? it's so random.

    if i misinterpreted, well, i think that means it's not so obvious what's being said.

    So, you're saying an arrow indicates what we perceive as direction because of its position/location relative to the thing it is intended by its creator to lead one to? On it's own, it would indicate nothing. Its meaning is in its position and location.

    Is that it?
    Yes. A cacophony is a virtual failure. Nothing would exist. Everything would come down in a crunch.

    Yes. The meaning in the (end) postion.
    Columbus understood the principle as well. He was wrong in some minor details, but we are not small minded.

    It was not in vain they said he was the person who started The New Age.
    Some people still live in the Middle Ages though.

    And why do you think I'm insightful? Is it because everyone else keeps misinterpreting what you're saying? I thought they were just joking... I didn't think they could actually be misunderstanding it.
    It means that if you want to see the other side of the moon you need your tools just as if you go to the store to buy Cadbury.

    It means the Handyman is all right. A helpful idiot, Lenin would say.

    In order to see what is there on the other side of the moon you must have eyes there, or a camera.

    In order to see a statue you have to go round it. Unless the statue is made to whirl around. Alas the moon is kind of fixed. It has not always been that way but the past does not help us.

    Is the Earth about latitude and longitude?

    The other day is behind Toga islands?
    Whose day?

    Ours.
    Is our day the day?

    You are insightful because you know the answer.

    My old piano teacher told me I didn't play the music right. Did not follow the intended directions.
    Professor Barth complained Arthie Rubinstein did not follow the intended directions.
    Some people never do. Never worry.
