    Why does it matter? I would tentatively answer that it is undetermined, but as I don't yet see the importance of the notion, don't expect me to hold fast to my answer.

    Perhaps, but then again what is nil? It only exists as a mathematical concept, and I don't see mathematics as a particularly useful prism through which to examine one's ideals.

    Yeah, value in terms of 'utility' or 'currency' is much different than the sort of worth that this kind of idealism describes.

    Two different languages entirely.

    In fact, I'm just going to assume that the TJs are going to come at this from a completely different mindset than the Feelers are, and we're all going to end up confusing each other and missing each others' points entirely. TJs will claim victory through the perception that they've spotted logical holes in a domain where such holes don't particularly matter, where Feelers will have the moral high ground of sticking by their idealism in the face of that sort of adversity.

    Looking forward to it.

    People are "noble savages" and have "blank slates". Oh and evolution is just a myth and conspiracy made up by the scientific community in an attempt to disprove God. Those are my central beliefs.... have at them.

    Why would they do that? And wouldn't such a large conspiracy have been leaked by now? That's not an ideal, it's just stupid.

    However, I believe that you shouldn't USE people for your own gain and wished others did the same but that's just part of human nature. You tend to lose at life if you don't use other people for your own gain once in awhile. I also wish people could be inherently good but the "noble savage" will never exist. I try to have common sense along w/ my idealism.
