Boogie on down the road...
brentan comments on Jul 8, 2019:
What was it Woody said about Buzz Lightyear's flying? Something like professional falling.
How some people find there peace.
brentan comments on Jul 8, 2019:
I haven't the slightest problem with that - I empathise. It's the smug, pushy fuckers I don't like.
We can make a difference.
brentan comments on Jul 8, 2019:
Just keep an eye out for those who want to change your culture into theirs. They want to teach you their ways and feel they have nothing to learn.
To die for, or perhaps to live and let live.

More truth here than some of you will be able to handle!
brentan comments on Jul 7, 2019:
I'm better about it than I used to be. These days, if I don't do it, it doesn't get done.
Finally something made me laugh today
brentan comments on Jul 7, 2019:
I think if we look at him within his Biblical context, I would say no. Outside of it, maybe but that might be because we often equate goodness in a man as a sign of unmanliness, weakness.
OK.
brentan comments on Jul 7, 2019:
I really enjoyed it. I could relate to so much of it.
I wasn't sure what group to put this in! But I have to say it's about fucking time he got arrested!...
brentan comments on Jul 7, 2019:
The story it tells about the justice system is very depressing too.
Forgiveness is a form of letting go, but they are not the same thing.
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think positivity is at the core of your post. I remember not being ready for so many years so stolidly keepin' on truckin' was the order of the day, just to exist. I wish positivity came for everyone eventually but I'm not sure about that. I'm lucky and I guess you are too. Forgiveness, I think, comes from a good place.
I meant to post this and it didn't

I have to laugh at the idea of Robert exorcising his demons on his audience and we find it therapeutic too.
A triple sonnet:- The Word.
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
That is a really well-crafted poem. I enjoyed the Vico-like trip through the ages of man and the sense of things speeding up through time. I'm thinking about the connection between word, logos and DNA.
John 9:39 (NRSV) - Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment so that those who do not see ...
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think the basic idea is that he is setting the world up for judgment in the future, which I believe they thought was coming within a generation. So there was no talk of judgment, sinners were embraced while the focus was on the good news of the gospels. But that was all to change when he came back.
President Donald Trump and Theresa May are shown a time machine which can see 50 years into the ...

Nature is infinitely more wonderful than any religious concept. - Oliver Sacks
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I'm not so sure about that but there is one way that nature trumps a religious concept - it is real and I'm convinced religious concepts are part of our wonderful imagination.

Important news
brentan comments on Jul 5, 2019:
It's not easy to deal with a situation where huge numbers of economic migrants lie about being refugees. I think their bad treatment is done in the hope that two wrongs will make a right.
Can we hope to achieve a more equal society?
brentan comments on Jul 5, 2019:
I've started reading a book called Saharasia that claims violent cultures grew up for the first time because of the desertification in the Sahara through the Middle East to Central Asia. Theoretically, this harsher life changed a generally more peaceful matriarchal society to a patriarchal one. This is said to have happened about 6,500 years ago.
So American soldiers took the airports in the War of 1812 .

brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:

brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
Someday, if they manage to turn the world completely upside down, the likes of Deja Vu will be advertising lots of ugly girls and two pretty ones. Great employment opportunities for the lefties.
Qualia / subjectivity - are qualia really like monads strung together to create threads of ...
brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I've only picked up the idea that the mind has two departments: reason and intuition. I've read qualia described as sensations of perception and placed in the intuition department. I've only read Pirsig's ZAMM and couldn't help thinking of his quality as related to qualia. I've noticed ambiguity in terms recently as we discuss these things. I suppose it's because we've all read some books and not others.

Five Habits to Heal the Heart of Democracy | Global Oneness Project
brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
It comes across very optimistic about goodness in people in general, especially looking at the ideological divide and the utter lack of trust there.
The Life of the Mind: Hannah Arendt on Thinking vs.
brentan comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I had got used to thinking about reason as the same as rationality and thus being limited in perception, intuition, that type of thing. But I think it's just down to choice of terminology. I hadn't heard of her other than the work she did during the Nuremburg trials. I should put the book on a wish list. It looks very interesting.

brentan comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I think they both know it's just a game and Trump is so confident of the pliability of the public that he's not afraid to show it. Earlier presidents are respected more because they had the 'decency' to try to hide what they were doing. Trump is an education for anyone who wants to see the abuse laid out right in front of them. My worry is that nothing will be learned and the next president will be 'business as usual'.

Slavery - Chapter and verse... [patheos.com]
brentan comments on Jul 1, 2019:
Wow. The Old Testament clearly endorsed slavery (Exodus 21, for example). The New Testament was different in that the priority was not the abolition of slavery in a revolutionary way but the development of new human relations in an unfair world which they believed was about to be brought to an end. The apostle Paul's letter to the slave-owner Philemon regarding his runaway slave Onesimus is very interesting, especially these verses: For this perhaps is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever,  no longer as a bondservant but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother—especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord - Philemon 15, 16). 
Enlightenment does not demand disenchantment with the world | Aeon Essays
brentan comments on Jul 1, 2019:
I guess that's a gnostic way of thinking. I like the idea of general enlightenment making the world a better place. I'm sure the gnostics would say that's not possible and history would seem to prove them right but still, maybe some day.
