    Yes. This i know. And even nothing is something. So emptiness can be nothing and something.

    It was the only assumption arising out of your explicit text. Drawing all other possibilities of assumptions, of your points of view, that you may or may not hold, from what was not explicitly stated, would be assumptive of me.


    Your example, not mine, and I was using the framework you presented. Please don't assume it's my single view, thanks.
    So you want me to assume things about you that you didn't say?

    ...especially when I didn't know you were going to take this particular tactic.
    Tactic? My only point was that, in one context, a suicide killer can be lauded as a hero, and his actions just. While, in another context, it is seen as a repugnant crime. And that the shift in perspective, and maintenance of cognitive dissonance, is afforded by upholding a "side". Religion, in this case/thread.

    Martin, you have a way with words. So does Shakespeare, "...filled with sound and fury, signifying nothing." That's something, isn't it?

    how to judge if you should take that action:
    1. Is what you're about to do gonna piss anyone of
    2. if so will it help or harm them?
    3. is it for the greater good, even if it might look morally questionable
    4. how much do you hate the person?

    if #1
    1. if it's not gonna piss them off but hurt them long term re-think action
    2. if it's not gonna piss them off and does not harm them long term, go for it
    3. if it's gonna piss them off and hurt them long term re-think action
    4. if it's gonna piss them off but help them long term, go for it, but be prepared for immediate fall out

    for #2
    1. if gonna harm both long and short term don't do
    2. if gonna help short term but harm long term don't do
    3. if gonna harm short term but help long term, consider but prepare for fall out
    4. if gonna help consider

    for #3
    1. for greater good, do it
    2. not for the greater good, don't

    for #4
    1. a lot, just don't talk to them you don't need the drama
    2. so-so uh if it's not a big thing i guess you can, if it's too big don't bother
    3. I like them so much i'd give them my spleen: do it if any of the above conditions check out
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I think my whole exchange here bears witness to this:
    "[F]aith is unthinkable, but abandonment to the abyss even more so." - James K.A. Smith
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    That makes sense.
