Hi, I’ve decided to join the bandwagon and create a blog…this one, I hope, will be somewhat different than most. Because it’s not going to be “all about me,” or about anyone’s personal life (other than politicians’- LOL)…it’s intended to be a place to discuss ideas. And yes, there is no right or wrong answer, no resolution, no light at the end of the tunnel, etc. That’s the beauty (and ugliness) of ideas. They exist only in our minds; which can be incredibly liberating or incredibly frustrating, depending on your viewpoint.

So anyway, I hope people will post things so this is not entirely going to be me going on and on about Kafka or Kierkegaard!

Will post something of substance later this weekend!

  1. What I want to know is: who is the hottie on your facebook profile page?

  2. Hey Tone,No, haven’t gone totally relativist, and that IS a good idea for a post. What I said was that there are no wrong or right ideas- NOT that there are no wrong or right actions. I sincerely believe there is a difference. I don’t believe that ideas actually exist, per se, as a fact does. But anyhow….starting to make me think of something…which is always good! 🙂

  3. Hey Mark, Thanks! Can I post a link to your blog on mine? Assuming I figure out how to do it?

  4. I dig your blog title, cousin. what’s this about there being no right answers? you haven’t gone total relativist on me, have you? a new post idea, perhaps? greatly looking forward to checking this regularly, AND especially to hanging out in a week or so! Much love,t

  5. Gina, I’ll limit the nerd speak to Leibnitz. As a pet lover, I thought you’d appreciate the following:65. The author of nature has been able to employ this divine and infinitely marvellous artifice, because each portion of matter is not only, as the ancients recognised, infinitely divisible, but also because it is really divided without end, every part into other parts, each one of which has its own proper motion. Otherwise it would be impossible for each portion of matter to express all the universe. 66. Whence we see that there is a world of created things, of living beings, of animals, of entelechies, of souls, in the minutest particle of matter. 67. Every portion of matter may be conceived as like a garden full of plants and like a pond full of fish. But every branch of a plant, every member of an animal, and every drop of the fluids within it, is also such a garden or such a pond. 68. And although the ground and air which lies between the plants of the garden, and the water which is between the fish in the pond, are not themselves plants or fish, yet they nevertheless contain these, usually so small however as to be imperceptible to us. 69. There is, therefore, nothing uncultivated, or sterile or dead in the universe, no chaos, no confusion, save in appearance; somewhat as a pond would appear at a distance when we could see in it a confused movement, and so to speak, a swarming of the fish, without however discerning the fish themselves. 70. It is evident, then, that every living body has a dominating entelechy, which in animals is the soul. The parts, however, of this living body are full of other living beings, plants and animals, which in turn have each one its entelechy or dominating soul. 71. This does not mean, as some who have misunderstood my thought have imagined, that each soul has a quantity or portion of matter appropriated to it or attached to itself for ever, and that it consequently owns other inferior living beings destined to serve it always; because all bodies are in a state of perpetual flux like rivers, and the parts are continually entering in or passing out.

  6. Welcome to the blogsphere. I will make your blog a daily stop and post a link to it on my blog.
