Me too. It was late. I suppose I was fishing for Gurdjieff's stance on the "question" of the immortal thingie. I don't really know his work at all; still I figured he'd be one that understood the value of the question to be above any teaching of its answer. Beyond the anxiety that riddles my monkey when having to parse such questions, I do find myself in fear of derailing the thread (a general condition of mine). I did like distinction offered between selves personal and essential, though I perdure in being unable to suffer the semantics of essence(s) over experience. This clarification is more considered than I thought it would be (not ever intending disrespect, just crazy stressed by various monkey business things that "essentially" only allow me to concentrate for a moment when I can excuse myself)

Uh, you misunderstand me Dr. Howl.   I have no offer of a deal. You fascinate me. I could never agree to not interact with you. Is that a bannanable offense? You're the power-possesser here.

Nope.  The 6 things that get you banned were listed on registration.  It's not my fault if you sign things without reading them.

In less ANGER news, I have lost around 20 pounds, and almost everything with starch in it tastes sweet to me.

Man, bread must be like cake.

Keep an eye on this.  If there's no local authority or Parliamentary intervention on this, expect it to be done elsewhere

Residents of a privately-owned London tower block with the same cladding as Grenfell Tower may be forced to pay up to 2m for replacement panels.

Citiscape in Croydon was one of 228 buildings across the country to fail fire safety tests set up in the wake of the disaster which claimed 71 lives.

With 95 flats affected, each household share could be between 13,300 and 31,300, to be paid in instalments.

Going between both Christianity and Judaism, it's amazing to see how differently they interpret the scripture that they share (generally speaking, the Tanakh is mostly included ** in a different order, in Christianity as the "Old Testament" - with a few books added.....)
What I began to see quickly is how such a large amount of orthodox Christian doctrine is actually derived from the New Testament (bingo Jesus) and in particular Paul's contributions (14 books). - This obviously results in a perverted understanding of the "Old' testament + reading connections that aren't there.

Also, so so so many Christian denominations have no idea whatsoever how to interpret The Book Of all. And because of this, there are so many Christians that negatively walk around with the 'Apocalypse mindset", which Revelation isn't even about!
....but that's the "New" Testament.  :lulz:

**different translations, applied meanings and the lot

:lulz: They especially ignore the fun parts of Genesis like the whole Nephilim thing and that one time Abraham sold his wife to the Pharaoh and told him she was his sister. Good times!

Yeah, that kind of stuff is awesome but Christians completely ignore it or pass it off. (At least in mystical Judaism you see those kinds of Biblical elements actually explored/explained - albeit differently to Christianity)

In the wake of a chemical or radioactive accident that leaves many people with organ damage a town is stalked by "The Trolley Problem Killer", a deranged surgeon who murders healthy people so that he can part their organs out to several of his patients (each)

Story has a premise similar to the main conflict of the  holiday special Santa Claus Is Coming to Town but the themes of christmas, santa claus, toys, and children are removed. Instead the hero is bringing violent videogames and hardcore pronograpy to the people of the Commonwealth of Nations in contravention of laws which heavily regulate such things.
