Bump again. Damn we have some erudite philosophers on this forum.

Yea... Carlo always did have a way with words. Shy

You're saying every village needs an idiot? Consider

In a village of idiots, an intelligent man would appear to be an idiot.

Girly, my dear, there's something about your pithy way with words that really resonates with me. I still think that "eternal life dilutes me to homeopathic levels" bit a stroke of pure genius and regularly use the phrase "post-mortem preservation of identity" (more online, than in real life, as there are precious few people in my life I could talk about such things with. And be understood when I do Undecided )

Haven’t we been down this road before, Johnny dearest [Image: hug2-smiley.gif]

Trust me, this isn’t one of my favourite quotes for no reason:

"The greatest pain sometimes comes from our own self-knowledge. What we are in the eyes of others and what we know ourselves to be." Undecided

We are not very impressed with ourselves, frankly… We do, however, love creeping plants. And flowers of all sorts and descriptions (sans orchids). See, we're not *entirely* heartless Blush

"It is by a mathematical point only that we are wise, as the sailor or the fugitive slave keeps the pole-star in his eye; but that is sufficient guidance for all our life. We may not arrive at our port within a calculable period, but we would preserve the true course." -- Henry Thoreau, Walden
