I think Asshat might be referring to "Paulicianism". Which is extremely arcane... they were around for a couple of hundred years starting in about 600 AD.

So much for the progressiveness of Islam. Out of the bronze age and into... well, they haven't actually left the bronze age, I see.

Years ago, I fell in love with this work and conducted a little quest to find older bound copies of it, and was able to gather enough to hand out to loved ones at Xmas. The fun part for me was finding the copies, seeing how they differed between translations, and comparing the additional materials.
I enjoyed my little exploration and each time I see a copy in a bookstore, I pick it up just to see how that one was put together. Many include engravings and prints, some even have the work itself in a different elaborate script than the rest of the book, which might include critiques and discussions.
It's a wonderful work of prose and I'm so glad it continues to be remembered... thanks for reminding me! Wink

My pleasure, Kim. Smile

I have a little volume of the Rubáiyát that I picked up in Tehran in the mid-70s. It has a selection of the original Persian quatrains with translations in five languages (English, French, German, Arabic and Urdu) along with some Persian paintings in the classical style. Sounds like it's in keeping with the volumes you mentioned.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

haha


well, denial is a powerful thing , i see

Paulusianism relates to Paulus the founder of christianity

For the rest , i thought that that silly made up unscientific Freud's psychology was already dead & buried a long time ago : it dies hard , i guess


What you all had missed is that the core thought of that poem of Khayam is as follows :

The purpose or meaning of life is sensual pleasure

RE: Thought for the New Year
Is the purpose or meaning of life just the pleasures of the senses like our Khayyam seemed to say ?

Come on , have some imagination or creativity , try to come up with some intelligent meaning of life

Try to come up with...? How about trying to see things as they may fit to reality. That in it's particular way doesn't stifle creativity but is enhancing to imaginary experiences.

Life's meaning is what you apply it to be, which can be a mass of wonderful things as that is what existence contains in abundances.

I hate new years eve/day not just because it's silly to celebrate a year in rotation around the sun, but the particular Gregorian calendar date of Dec. 31/Jan 1st has no basis for being the date. It serves no correlation to any connection of a point with the earth around the sun which other have at least had a particular attempt to make, like Celtic Oct. 31st which falls is close between the Autumnal Equinox and Winter Solstice.
