The last statement was more of a joke than any serious challenge, I apologize if it came across as otherwise lol :laugh:

Anyway, it’s not necessary for one to believe in a higher power for such a higher power to exist, imho. Most of my friends are atheists or agnostics - and it’s perfectly fine. I will say that certain experiences in my own personal life have been proof enough for me, but it doesn’t mean that anyone else has to believe in the existence of God/Divine consciousness.

In other words: you can choose to believe or not believe anything you want to, regardless of any proof or lack thereof. It’s all right. :)
Ohhhh ok, sorry, I didn't catch on to the lighthearted tone via text. Sorry!

Yeah, I know that kind of faith works for some people, but that's not really what I was saying though, I was just saying no one can prove you wrong but that doesn't mean it's proven right. Which you've clarified was lighthearted.

I'm not sure what you're referring to, so what you're saying doesn't make much sense to me, but go ahead and claim victory if that's what you're after, because I've lost interest and really don't feel like wasting any more of my energy on this.
I'm not interested in "winning" when I speak on anything. I'm just characteristically blunt, candid, and open to discussing things objectively, but it's two sided. In other words, I would not be offended or defensive had the situation been reversed, as I do not mind being told that some information I'm speaking on is inaccurate. Accuracies and inaccuracies say nothing about an individual. Thus, I derive nothing from a sense of "winning," as I am not interested in proving I'm right, there is no sense of pride when being accurate says nothing about an individual; I'm only interested in being right, as in accurate, which sometimes means saying I am wrong. Nobody knows everything. I'm only interested in truth/accuracy for the sake of truth/accuracy. I tend to be rather impersonal and impartial in things like this.

I would clarify, but you've said you're not interested, so...enjoy the rest of your day/night.

I wonder if there’s a way to send a tiny bit of my energy to the near future - say, exactly a year from now - and then call it back to myself. I’m going to test this theory today.

I have been wondering the same thing, assuming past lives are even real. It would explain alot.

I think it was a moral violation to sentence Aileen Wuornos to death, although complicated by the fact she was pushing for it. They had to let her pass a psych evaluation the day before. She was clearly not fit to stand trial and was criminally insane. My heart breaks for her on one level, while acknowledging that she did cause suffering. Mental illness needs to be understood and addressed in society.

So I hear the theoretical physicists have worked out the math to determine that we exist both inside and on some sort of "holographic" event horizon of reality a bit like we have already fallen inside a black hole? It would explain a lot.

:huh:
:unsure:
:shock:
