The thing is, it is quite possible to convey messages and be somewhat unconventional in formatting and approach.  See LHX. 



This is true. And LHX's writings make a surprisingly good breath of fresh air. I wouldn't want everyone typing like that though - my brain would get all confused.

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

How about the ocean deeps?  I think it's safe to say there is no humanity down there, cept for the occassional National Geographic submarine.  There's a certain reality, or "bits of stuff" that have, I assume, been existing without our presence.  Perhaps if we weren't around it would be different, in fact I'm sure it would be somehow.  But it would still "be" in some fashion wouldn't it?

Logic and almost every other rule you could apply, dictates that it does but I'd bet even science would be reluctant to call this an irrefutable fact because the bottom line is - we can't prove it.

It's an extension of BIP the way I see it, that and a bit of matrix flung in, that reality is actually projected by us and only exists in a bubble, around the observer. Yes, I agree, this is a patently ridiculous hypothesis but it is one, nonetheless that we can't completely rule out.

If you want to fuck your head in with metaphysics then, take it from someone who has, this kind of paradigm is exactly the kind of thing that will do it for you.

So you're saying that it's possible the ocean floor may only exist when we are actually there?
So, by this logic, it's possible to jump from a mile high cliff and walk away without a scratch. 

I used to date a girl who claims to have done this.  Well, actually she got a scratch, but she didn't go splat.

Until they start going through your mail, throw hot food at you, and try to strangle you. 

Well, unless your David Carradine of course.

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Troof.  I dated a girl who when we first met, she kicked my legs out from under me, elbowed me in the stomach and then attempted to strangle me.

Things got even better after we managed to get each other's names.

If people's thoughts are trustworthy why do we have creationists?
