    Satan is truly the Dark Lord. And he will use any vile methods and means to create widespread chaos and slaughter. Including censuses.

    But chaos is actually a euphemism for limitation, or the opposite ofa euphemism which I can't remember right now, but basically there is no such thing as chaos outside of our humanity. Chaos is the limitation of our ability to perceive order which is always there by induction since we have continuously discovered order behind every assumed chaotic event. In other words chaos is even intelligent.

    As for the common argument of intelligent design - I Don't know it...this is my own idea.

    I know it's a far stretch metaphor but I usually read a lot of contemporary scientific breakthroughs and there seems to be relationships which weave in and out of scales of size. It seems the biggest mystery in the universe is not time itself but that of size and a non-living brain.

    This is a very weird way of me saying that I believe I will be united with love for eternity and that intelligence permeates every facet of existence.

    Well, that is not (morally) right!
    That would be like killing german civilians for Hitler's deeds. It does not square.

    The strings that bind us....

    One string goes to the other side of the galaxy
    one string goes from me to you
    and another string vibrates
    and I feel the urge to drink water and eat
    and between those strings there are other strings
    until finally we have a theory of strings
    and we discover that the ancients were right in assuming reality a tapestry
    of interconnections
    But who is the weaver?
    does not matter
    but what is clear is that what is weaved must be woven.

    Yeah, I'm big on threads. Everything is connected. And our ties help define us.

    “Form does not differ from emptiness”: “is” is like “is not”.
    “Emptiness does not differ from form”:
    the distinction is of substance and function. “
    Form itself is emptiness”: its true source is fathomed.
    “Emptiness itself is form”: the false flow has dried up.
    Mountains, rivers, and the great earth are only manifestations of consciousness.

    Beautiful. We both walk in two worlds.
