    It's something interesting to me. I've always been curious about this sort of thing, the bigger questions of life, like what is it. This may not be a practical discussion, but it doesn't matter. You can speculate all you want here.

    Life is a biochemical reaction system.

    We're here by accident.

    On the one hand, think big and discover everything because you can, and that's so very cool. On the other hand, think small and observe that we are happiest sometimes functioning well within the limits our tiny selves dictate, so get a partner and make babies.

    And watch out for Thetans.

    They will drink your tea and steal your body.

    PCs weren't that common back in 80's Glasgow. It's a quote from the movie Trainspotting.

    Erma Bombeck said it well in regards to the life of a mother. "Shit and stringbeans."
    "No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
