Want! :-D

Suspect playing with one comes somewhere on the list of "Things Arkady Is Not Allowed To Do" though. Possibly on the grounds I would enjoy itfar too much.

Sorry to read today that one of our lads lost his life due to a landmine yesterday, following on from the death of WO Shirley on Friday. Whenever I read a report like today's, which doesn't give a name, my first thought is "God I hope it's not Vexen." So your post is quite a relief! Very glad you haven't been blown up. :-)

Ah, I spot your userpic :-)

Thanks for the concern, I won't get blown up. My biggest daily risk is maybe getting an electric shock from a server or maybe a spot of RSI...

Headgear looks somewhat Ninja-ish! What's it for? Bowman PRR?

You've got some rapid kit-identification skills going, there!

Very cool, very Rambo. & take care mister!!! XXX

Thanks, see you around sometime!

Hi there. I just finished reading
http://www.humantruth.info/solipsism.html
and would like to add:

Part of the foundations of solipsism is the idea the self created the universe as a means of amusement. But this idea contains an assumption that, if made, contradicts everything laid on the foundation. The assumption is this: That the universal self desires amusement.

The desire for amusement is something exhibited only by animals. Why would something only present in a subset of the myriad things the universe contains be a primary motivation for the creation of everything in it? Absolutely no good reason. >:)

(1) It is not a necessary assumption that solipsistic creation was for self-amusement; it could also be a fleeting moment of imagination that the self got caught up in, or, reality could be a method of self-humiliation and self-inflicted powerlessness.

(2) Because we know that a search for amusement and play is a behaviour of animals doesn't mean that it is ONLY a feature of animal life. There is no evidence that other advanced life forms don't seek out amusement, simply because we don't know much about other life forms or their emotions. It might be that, like the quantum Observer Effect or Heisenberg's Uncertainty principal, that a law of conscious existence is that amusement is the founding principal of life.

When you get into such panentheistic arguments, anything goes, because it doesn't really make coherent sense. In Buddhism, for example, reality was once one, but, a millions consciousnesses came into being for some reason; the reason may well have been a search for amusement. There is no logical way to discount, or affirm, any particular emotion as the first cause.

(3) Despite all that, I agree that a principal of amusement doesn't make sense as a solipsist's excuse for his creation. (Then again, neither does any explanation provide a logical reason either!)

Military Service

I admire your service to your country via the military. However, do you realize the "enemy" you are protecting the world and your country from??? You need to understand and study their "religion," which is what drove them to drive airplanes into the World Trade Center, etc. on 9/11/01. Look at Amadinijad (spelling??) in Iran, who believes, since the age of 12, is going to usher in the "12th Imam" (Islamic Mesiah). Unlike Christianity, A-Jad will start by Nuking Israel and then aim for the U.S. to usher in the 12th Imam. Do you ever wonder why the Islamist HATE Israel and the Jewish people and desire to "wipe them from the face of the earth"??? You need to ask that question and SEEK the answer! For when you find the answer to that question, you will NO LONGER trash Christianity. You need to stop your crusade against Christianity and start taking up against Islam ... which is what poses a threat to you! But, as a TRUE Christian, I pray for all who are "trapped" in the SATANIC RELIGION of Islam and all other "religions" and they come to know the TRUTH.
