Hmmmmmmm . . . . . . .

I don't usually look like Monica Lewinsky. aka: the Zoinks ©!


How about a great cup
of STFU to start your
process of waking up?






I joined neworleans by accident. In a mass LJ serial-adder move to incorporate as many high-traffic communities as I possibly could with loose connection to nflfans, this one somehow ended up on my user list instead of the American football community. I read this earlier in my morning, and I internally waxed, wow, that person, first in line of comment, walked into a field of mines and lost.

The concept of "won" or "lost" is under great internal debate, since such comments only serve well in argument, which was what the person clearly tried to do by this comment:


As usaul they are a bunch of cyy babies begging for a hand out, rather than a hand up.


Note the necessity, whenever providing "the smack," to use spell-check as the last resort for English deficiency.

I don't fault any of the combatants. What we face as a society of young adults grows, into a task of perceived impossibility, similar to a Titanic which already takes water.

Yet, at any depth of perception, there exists a skew to which the internal juxtaposes with the externals and somewhere, somehow, in the approximation of all points considered, there is empirical.

I've never touched the book, but the movie, which I viewed some time during my college years, literally changed my life. I had some understanding of the concept prior to watching Kurosawa's film, but the film helped in part to solidify my concept of the existence of reality separate from perception.


One point of view within the driving concept.

I'm surprised there aren't more comments over there. It is poor form to make such a bold statement with such poor spelling. I've never heard of that book/movie you mentioned.

You enjoy concepts and application of ideas very much. I believe you'd love Kurosawa's films.

Akira Kurosawa - <I>Rashomon</I>

Here's a list of the body of his work.

I'm not sure which, if any, you've watched, but if you can find yourself a copy, of all the ones (still very few) I've watched, they're all winners.

Until we 'Win' we Have 'Lost'....Bushims and More

I'll definitely be sure to check out that movie as it sounds very interesting. Understandably, the first one to comment there got what he had coming. The perception of FEMA is far different from the reality.

I've learned most of what I believe about perception and reality through the use of LSD so I may be a little off here, but I'll try. Perception (furthermore, learning) is tied to the cognitive process. When that process is broken down something occurs called 'ego loss'. Be it through the use of chemicals or whatever natural way works for you, that is where 'true' learning begins and ends. For we can only see something in a truly unbiased light once it is not filtered through the ego first. Perception works at several levels and at each of those levels it is tied in through the ego. Thus, everything we perceive about our environment is naturally in relation to how it will affect us and our way of being. There lies the problem.

Once we can find a way to make ourselves no longer part of the equation I believe we have 'won.'

Re: Until we 'Win' we Have 'Lost'....Bushims and More

I tend to agree, but the experience of humility plus the ability to see the 'other' (demonstrated so well in Rashomon) also does wonders to speed along that process.

Humility is just as much a part of the growth process as every other part.

I think a lot of folks instinctively shut out humility instead of embracing it.

Very true. Humility is also tied to the ego (granted, just about everything is) and as to avoid discomfort in any way it is our nature to avoid humility. Which is wrong. As you said, it is a quality that should be embraced.
