    And if it happens to you, then will we all say "Too bad for you?".

    Hmm.. I wandered off from the computer and realized that I had a lot to say on this topic.

    There are many things that I'm thinking, but to keep it short-

    The more emoting, thinking, and doing spent in one moment makes me feel like the time is quality.
    It could be just two of the above- but the richer I can make the experience the better. Sometimes that involves a lot of thinking and feeling deeper into a more mundane experience, or just feeling deeply on something that is right in front of me- examining things, trying to understand them. There are a lot of ways that I can fill myself with life. Alright- this is the part where I will continue to ramble off into the sunset, but I think you get the point.

    It was just a question. I guess you don't care, but not answering it leaves your thoughts inconsistent. Some people would say being consistent is a virtue. Some would also say arguing is the process of finding reason that is most consistent. I would agree since there is very little we can say about the inconsistent in contrast.

    If you're not concerned with consistency, then you must be concerned more with the outcome. Subjecting people on a message board seems rather pointless then, but okay, have fun.

    Well those cases I mentioned are more common than the prevalence of paraplegia and paraplegics are rarely able to be as active as the exceptional cases you mentioned, so?

    The point is that you're evading the question in terms of finding deeper meaning from life.

    I feel most alive when I don't concentrate... Or maybe that's when I feel the most relaxed. I feel at these times I can truly examine my life and that which resides within my life, making it a life worth living. At least by old man Socrates' terms.

    Meaning from life is a personal quest. I have struggled to find my own and am fairly happy with where that has lead me. "Deep" is just an abstraction in this case. My mention of exceptional outliers. Uts both ways. I'm able. Odied and grateful for it. Aside from a few serious injuries that is the only perspective I have. I don't know where the infirm find their joy and cannot genuinely relate to their position.

    Little_Sticks: your question is an attempt to promote introspection and guilt that isn't even properly directed at me. It is therefore not worth acknowledging.

    This thread has potential to be an interesting discussion of a difficult subject. Carry on as you will.

    I suck at typing on my phone... Sheesh.

    If someone is unable to access certain environments, they must find ways of truly living in the environments accessible to them. My SO's grandmother was a master at this, as her health declined and she was able to do less and less. I suspect she would have said she was "really living", right up until the day she died.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    It's a fair question. It has nothing to do with guilt unless you make it so, which it appears you have. That tells me more than it would had you actually answered it.
