    Maybe that we're incapable of peace? .. To have absolute peace and harmony would be something close to Eden.. which I think we are forced to forever steer away from.

    Know thyself.

    Why do you think people fall into conflict, ThatGirl?

    What happens if I have more than you? You need what I will not volunteer. What next?

    ...why?

    I honestly dont know why people fall into conflict, it all seems so petty. There is an undelyning truth to everything. I may sound idealistic here, but if people learned to look beyond themselves they may actually see the same thing. They may understand and with understanding there is peace.

    I dont understand the need, I only understand the concept and concepts are always relative. I don't believe in give and take, I believe in the truth.

    Does that make any sense?

    So what makes people cross that rationality?

    You never wanted something that belonged to someone else?

    War is an expression of territory. How we protect resources important to us. Not just physical, but ideological resources.

    Rationality loses real estate when our perceived way of life is threatened.

    How one reacts is subjective to the threat itself.

    If it is not mine, it is not mine. I can bitch and gripe and do whatever the hell I want within my own but it will not change the fact that if it is not mine it is not mine.

    Are you telling me that you believe there are things that can only be attained by one specific avenue?

    This should be stickied as a description of Thinking and Feeling in the MBTI sense.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
