James Taylor - The Making Of "Sweet Baby James" - YouTube
brentan comments on Jan 29, 2019:
That man's music spoke to me like no other when I was a teenager. I've enjoyed a couple of his concerts and have collected all his albums over the years.
What are your thoughts on Donald Hoffman's theory of conscious agents?

That's a very catchy song!
May I ask the men why it is that you give your penis a name?
brentan comments on Jan 29, 2019:
I think a penis has no personality but it sure does have a will of its own. I've never thought of naming mine. It's just a part of my body.
Unequivocal-adjective.
brentan comments on Jan 29, 2019:
I think the word carries the sense of 'not being possible to misunderstand or make a mistake about something'.
Could someone in this group or beyond let me know at what point I am expected to be "Old and Wise"?
brentan comments on Jan 29, 2019:
In the case of men, I think we're expected to become old farts, old fools or grumpy old men. I don't think this world puts age and wisdom together anymore and it has good reason not to. But I would bet there are old and wise out there, wise enough to know they won't be listened to and keeping mostly silent.
Let's put Google to the test.

Never Stop Dreaming. What do you dream of? What are your personal dreams/goals?
brentan comments on Jan 28, 2019:
I dream about a middle-aged black woman to add colour to my dreary elderly white existence, preferably one of those bossy ones who browbeat everyone into shape.
I have a question. Anybody seem to wake up with different songs in their heads many days?

brentan comments on Jan 28, 2019:
I think not. I knew too many intelligent people when I was a Christian. They would diligently search scriptures to get deeper knowledge of them. It's not a case of not thinking. It's a case of what you turn your attention to.

As an Englishman I'm trying to decide which of the two of us is most screwed.
brentan comments on Jan 28, 2019:
They have something in common, I think. Or two things - nationalism and immigration. The nationalism shows itself as isolationist. These times are a real education for people who thought politicians were clever people.
Therein lies wisdom. ;)

Belief and knowledge
brentan comments on Jan 27, 2019:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. -Hebrews 11:1. It's not hard to see how this definition sets the scene for the conflation of belief and knowledge. What is substance in this situation? He seems to indicating that it is tangible evidence of intangibles like the unseen and hoped-for things. I think most self-respecting Christians would feel that a faith expressed as less than factual would be a weak faith. After all, they have the 'evidence'.
Some folks harbour so much ignorance and hate in their heart.

Crystal Castles ft.
brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
It has taken me 40 years to relate to The Cure. Curiously (no pun intended), it has come at a time when I am quite content in my own skin. I find their music very relaxing, thought-provoking. Robert Smith looks strange these days, like a middle-aged woman. Fast-forward anbout a minute on this video to see what he looks like and how the band sound. Wonderful stuff! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckdHyuPZY8s

brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
I can't help thinking of them as religious zealots. Just recently, there have been indications that business organisations are positioning themselves as the new priests of the movement - Apple, PayPal and Patreon, for example, using their economic clout to support liberal views and remove dissenting views from the media.

brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
It's heartening to see a country care so much about lesser countries when its own is in such difficulties. The world has never been happier since America abandoned the Monroe Doctrine. That's why we say 'God Bless America'.

I found this on youtube.
brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
I’ve just been reading a book about the brain. The author puts schizophrenia (and autism) down to a disconnect between the left and right brain hemispheres. The problem is that the left hemisphere has no idea that the other one exists, which isn’t a problem usually because the right hemisphere can integrate the two sides. In schizophrenia (and cases where the right hemisphere is damaged), this doesn’t happen and the left side is baffled by messages coming in from the other side. It puts them down to external sources to account for them. Modern medicine is wonderful, giving an opportunity to people, including myself, who years ago would not have been able to live any kind of productive life

brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
I think a lot of mentally healthy people don't over think things or jump to the conclusion that it is their fault. I say 'think' because I really don't know. I also think they use anger to vent their frustration where mentally ill keep it all in until they implode. Be kind to yourself.

brentan comments on Jan 26, 2019:
Here's a bit of context and I hope a good interpretation: A country is in trouble when its king is a youth and its leaders feast all night long.  But a country is fortunate to have a king who makes his own decisions and leaders who eat at the proper time, who control themselves and don't get drunk.  When you are too lazy to repair your roof, it will leak, and the house will fall in.  Feasting makes you happy and wine cheers you up, but you can't have either without money.  -Ecclesiastes 10:16-19. In other words, work hard to have money to maintain your home and party in a disciplined way.

It’s hard to believe that in 2008 I was canvassing for Obama. What changed?
brentan comments on Jan 25, 2019:
Maybe what changed was the gradual loss of the middle class, or middle income in America. Maybe economic difference was disappearing when everyone's income was reducing so ideology became the dividing line. Trump reckoned that many issues, such as racism, would dissolve if people could get back to work. He's probably right there because people, I think, are more interested in a decent living than principles.

brentan comments on Jan 24, 2019:
I got that way through religion. I thought I should play my part in taking care of the earth even if a new world was coming to replace it. It was practice for later. I still do it, using everything fully, disposing everything where it should go - the garbage, the recycle or the biodegradable.

Before You Can Be With Others, First Learn to Be Alone - aeon - Pocket
brentan comments on Jan 23, 2019:
I don't think we learn to be alone first but who knows what we think of in the womb. Once born, it's all about social interaction. Later we might become introspective. One philosopher said the unconsidered life wasn't worth living but so many people live it and are content enough. One of the Bible prophets spoke of knowledge increasing sorrow - For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief" (Ecclesiastes 1:18). Loneliness is now classified by some as a disease. The article probably means voluntary isolation rather than loneliness - a time to recharge batteries and mull over things that need time for reflection. It is probably for the best if we spend less time reflecting than we spend interacting but I'm sure any self-respecting Buddhist would disagree with me.

So how many of you have heard of Pantheism and how do you feel about it?
brentan comments on Jan 21, 2019:
I can relate to the idea. I think it's the new name for animism, which goes back a long way so it seems people are looking back in time because they've reached dead ends with modern thinking. I have Rupert Sheldrake to thank for anything I hear about it.
Can the UK possibly recover from the Brexit pantomime (in or out)??
brentan comments on Jan 21, 2019:
