    Yes.

    Do I feel comfortable eating turkey because it is a bird, and not a mammal?

    Why did I order it on wheat bread, instead of rye, probably because I wanted some fiber with my meal.

    What has more fiber in it, rye bread or wheat?
    Why did you ask yourself that in the first place?

    Mustard, I love mustard, I prefer the mustard with the seeds in it, not the highlighter yellow stuff, though I eat the highlighter yellow stuff when there is no other mustard option.

    There are a lot of mustard plants growing in Los Angeles.

    The flowers are yellow.

    I do not know how mustard is made.
    Yes you do. You just said so.

    How many farms, fowl, factories, and people did it take for me to enjoy such a lovely sandwich.
    Isn't our society amazing?

    Did I really enjoy the sandwich?

    I'm not sure, I was preoccupied with thoughts and feelings.
    What does it mean to enjoy something?

    You think you eat just the turkey, just the wheat bread, just the mustard, but what about all the micro organisms you ingest that you cannot see.

    Do I want to know?

    Or is ignorance bliss.
    Of course not. By understanding the unpleasant things, we make peace with them. We then shift our perception of the world, and revisit our past assumptions. We gain a more complete, accurate view of what things are, and what they mean.

    And these questions barely touch upon the surface of the sandwich.

    Social insects are fascinating, just a thought.

    Hymenoptera - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Termites, too.
    Genes have found millions of interesting ways to propagate their information, haven't they? Indeed, what is information in the first place?

    Mathematics is mathemagical, I know this.

    Blah, blah, blah.

    I like that (some) mathematicians study musical theory.

    The End...

    Or the Beginning.
    Why does that seemingly bore you?

    Is there a ubiquitous Truth which transcends and is reflected in all elements of and within the universe?
    Quod est veritas? Do the relationships between material things change? Not as far as we know. Not only that, but the universe is consistently simple that there is little reason to believe so.

    Is the universe holographic?

    Holistic?

    My Fi-meter says so.

    I have no proof, just an inkling of intuition, and a tugging feeling.
    Sure it is. However, it is also composed of many parts. As one of those components, we are much more comfortable with dealing with those other components on their scales. Look what happens when we scale down to the quantum level: we barely understand what's going on there.

    I can say I am sitting in a chair. In reality, the negative charges of the electron fields (which is also the manifestation of potentialities of various quarks) are repelling the negative charges of the electron fields in the chair. I never touch it; I constantly hover nanometers away from the chair. The force of this repulsion interacts with other electron fields within the endings of my nerves, which interacts with other electric fields to shoot a signal up to my brain. However, it is of limited use to constantly perceive of things in this way. Sometimes, it's just easier to use the large-scale conceptualization, inaccurate though it may be.

    My head's about to explode, hahahaha, I haven't thought about this shit for a while.

    But when I get this overwhelming feeling, I just sit back and breathe, let it all sink in, and think of the marvelous and deeply profound word, no, concept, that being...

    Simplexity!




    That's the world the NeTi user always lives in. We never leave it. Wonder, then, why we always seem like our heads are in another universe?

    It doesn't bore me at all, quite the opposite!

    It's just all, well, so very overwhelming!!!

    Too many things to discover, investigate, digest, connect.

    Not enough time.

    :/

    The whole point of molecular gastronomy is to disprove the exact notion you just expressed.

    Analysis vs Synthesis

    Microscopia vs. macroscopia <--- I think I just made up these words, but you get the point

    What's the antithesis of zero?

    One?

    Infinity?

    Infinitely small, infinitely large

    Where does one draw the line?

    What delineates a Part to the Infinite Puzzle?

    Are there independent parts?

    Or only seemingly independent parts.

    A stew of stuff.

    I don't know anything.

    Well, I do know these two things for now,

    1.) onemoretime, you're a smart cookie

    2.) I really love the quote which I think embodies the nature of Stuff, which is...

    "Everything in every thing"

I know what you mean, but from a Ti perspective.

    Are sure this isnt how you would apply Se to the Ti logical connections? Ie a practical application of the idea and how to merge the two different concepts to produce something productive?

    Ti, Se, Ni..... Hmmm... Poki what are you doing to reality? God, I wish I fucking understood Ni better...I am so annoyed. Poki you are getting at something important here, but I am too slow to understand it. Damnit.

    You see the logical reality in front of you-Se, but then can see different ways to remodel/recreate-Ni it at the same time to rebuild into something productive and logical???

    (I also carry around rocks-typically in my pockets though)

    One?

    Infinity?
    Undefined. There is (1) and there is not (0). However, there is also mu. We tend to mathematically express this concept as the square root of -1, or i.

    Infinitely small, infinitely large

    Where does one draw the line?
    Wherever you're at.

    What delineates a Part to the Infinite Puzzle?
    Everything.

    Are there independent parts?
    As far as we can tell, no.

    Or only seemingly independent parts.

    A stew of stuff.

    Sure you do.

    Yup.

    You know what is sort of interesting. I remember thinking stuff like this even when pretty small. It's part of the reason I was drawn to biophysics in grad school. There is some sort of inherent beauty in continuity.

    Why is Fi not limited by boundaries? Not what does it feel like, but actually why is that a characteristic of it?

    This, for shizzle. However, I think this ability also has something to do with Ni.
