Nothing really. How you been?
The once and future last post.
What has been will be again.
Let's change gears.
Fair enough. How is life treating you? Are we the only two still play?
How's life? Asking the wrong guy. (Haha.)
It's okay. Nothing too good or too bad.
Well, that is good. That it isn't bad.
No, it's bad; just not too bad.
It's also good, which isn't because it isn't ever bad; and it's never too good.
In other words, it's both good and bad, even though it's neither overly good nor overly bad.
Okay. Well I hope it gets better.
Boom! I win ... for the brief second....
Isn't that vice versa?
There's "One and done." Then there's "Done and done." / "Done &(an[d])1([d]one)."
Oh my... What's going on here?
Happy winter holidays, by the way :)
You have to read the whole thread.
Did you read the whole thread?
The best offense is a good weapon.
Good to have you back in the fight Jose.
Glad to be back. Schools done, so now I have plenty of time to bounce around.
No one has sweeter tears than you!
So what happened to everyone else? I see like four people posting with the sprinkle of new people. Have they sucked the marrow from this site and rolled out?
The force of Dwayne's personality is too much for casual commenters.
Might be the first spam I've seen in this particular thread.
That took a really long time to post.
But was it long enough?
That's what she said.
I'm reading Bertrand Russell's History of Western Philosophy. It is humbing. So many ideas that I thought were new and novel were thought of and a major point of contention for hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of years.
It is a must read for anyone who is willing to question what they believe.
We need cyborg philosophers.
We have cyborg philosophers, and robot philosophers... possibly even xeno philosophers, and carrot philosophers, and hamburger philosophers...
But, yeah, we need more.
I shall become a philosopher de Trump. I think it's a sub-philosophy concerning long-haired albino rabbits. Or the sub-philosophy of the Tibetan llama, which should not be confused with a Tibetan lama. But should be confused with any animal that spits.
It's a growth industry.
@XyZy - Good links! (Though I'm not a big fan of Tool, and no longer have Adobe stuff.) I've run across Bakker sometime before, probably down a Speculative Realist wormhole.
But I meant specifically philosphers with cybernetic implants, literal walking encyclopedias who don't need to be reminded that so and so said such and such to so and so in such and such year.
I dream of a Neuralware Processor with Sandevestan Boosterware, Dataterm Link, and Chipware Socket with APTR Reflex Chips, MRAM Memory Chips, and a WetDrive...
But whats the difference between an electronic encyclopedia in my head, and an electronic encylopedia in my pocket? Besides the memory loss and constant nose bleeds getting all over my Versace suit while being chased by Yakuza Street Samurai?
What about this kind of cyborg philosopher?
