BTW, off topic a bit, but does anyone know how to contact Seth? He mentioned in a podcast about a project with the subject of Witnesses, and needing help from previous members, since he knows so little of it himself. Thanks!

You can probably contact him on his facebook. Or, maybe, ask Stark.

I don't apply this way of thinking to every single area of my life, nor do I think it applies to everyone. But one needs to consider all sides (or at least all they have access to and are willing to face) to make a decision that feels right for them. The positives I go through are found by divorcing myself from religious dogma, and struggling while being independent. Real-life stuff.

Exactly. I think we might be talking about the same thing. Only differently. Wink

I do often focus on positive aspects of a scenario, mostly because - "What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger." - carries a balanced outcome of practical truth. I am compelled to root for anyone even considering slogging through shit, even if I might be the only one around that person to do so. People are complex and most are complexly challenged... often by "real-life stuff".

On the offhand a single positive perspective might seem like a light at the end of a tunnel, there has to be at least one light, or no one would ever try to go through the tunnel. Simply put, a positive perspective might just provide an alternative that hasn't yet been considered.

People will do whatever they do and if they ask for feedback, I don't mind providing my possibly positive perspective. I'm pretty much just a drop in the bucket so... chances are my two cents will be ignored. Right? In the end, what doesn't kill them, I'm sure will make them stronger. Shy

Unless, of course, all your skin is singed off and your heart is being run by machines.

Huh

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Think that meant "heart"

You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.

It is a hypothetical situation in which your skin is singed off and your cardiovascular system is purely being operated by machinery. If the machines are unplugged, you die. But, you are still alive. Therefore, you ain't gonna be gettin' any stronger, but you ain't dead. Smartass

Goddam I miss Deadwood. It got cancelled before it had run its natural course. I want me some of Wu's pigs. Can see how their ability to dispose of bodies could come in handy. Far more efficient than fucking cats.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
