I am reclusive Dormouse. Unless necessary I literaly never leave the house.

Don't like it out. People tend to be there.

How did are you spending this lovely Saturday?

Well, it was going be Zombies playing day, with the odd work break thrown in, but I fell behind with work this week. Soooo ...

I spent the day fixing and filling my growing empire of vending machines at the local airport. Such fun!

Should have gone with Hippy and her family on their Mediteranian(sp?) cruise ... DOH!

Cyan, yellow, magenta.

That way I would still be able to tell which cartridge is which in my inkjet printer.

Shouldn't you be reading psychology rather than philosophy and religion, then?

I take it you are colour blind - don't they do contact lenses to correct that now? Then you wouldn't get your ink cartridges mixed up (and you'd be able to drive a bus!)

Cool question Angie

I kinda think this; Physchology is purely 'mind mechanics'.

In the same way that car mechanics are very usefull ("you have a loose screw there mate") mind-mechanics are usefull ("Mate, you have several loose screws. Here and here and here ..")too.

Philosophy though: I see that as more akin to the art of ignoring all that is already 'known' and coming up with new ideas which may eventualy lead to building the perfect 'car'.

No, not colour blind. That was just a weak joke answer to the question about "if you could only see 3 colours, which? and why?

I think I would fail a bus drivers test anyhow ..

Would be bound to get the bit wrong wherein; You make the heavily pregnant woman, with heavy shopping bags, run for the bus and then, just as she reaches it, shut the doors and drive away.

Psychology has it's roots in philosophy: I think the two feed off each other still. I get your point about philosophy seeing the bigger picture though;and psychology then tests the theories to see if they are valid.

I must get round to studying philosophy one day.

Sorry I took your joke too literally

So what is your favourite colour?

Oh aye Angie. Definitely a link twix philosophy and phsychology.

I have a little book. Something like '50 Philosophy Ideas You Should Know' it is called.

Thing I found interesting was this; Certain philosophical ideas underpin our whole concepts of what we are, why we are, our relationship to 'other', to what constitutes justice and so on. The key ones are so deeply imbedded into everything we are taught from the cradle on that they are kind of 'sublimal'. Beyond our conscious minds.

I have a suspicion the we not need phsychologists at all if some of those key ideas were not a little fekked up.

'Lo Sadie

You are expecting me to say 'Buddhism'?

Not even the buddha said buddhism. In one famous(ish) quote the buddha is said to have said summat close to this: "Untold buddhas have arisen before me and there are untold buddhas yet to come. Buddhas always have and will always continue to arise from many different paths."

That one is kinda logical; In the same way that Jesus could not have 'arisen' from Christianity the Buddha could not have 'arisen' from buddhism, as it were?

If I had to name the key factor which I believe is most important they would be these though:

To know that all obstacles to enlightenment arise from 'attachment' and 'desire'.

'Attachment' being the clinging to, fear of losing, stuff (including ideas and life itself) that we already have.

'Desire' being the yearning for, fear of not attaining, things (including enlightenment) that we do not have.

The common factor of attachment and desire is that they create fear, ultimately fear of 'truth'.

From my reading of people I believe to have been enlightenment (buddha, jesus, gandhi, thich nhat hanh) I have come to believe that no fear of truth, no matter where truth leads, is one common factor in them all.

The other common factor that being that they all understand/stood 'one to many' maths. That being the futility of self centred morality. No one of 6 billion selfish b'stards stands a snowball in hells chance of happiness pitted against 6 billion -1 other equaly selfish b'stards at all.

The above, obviously enough, being the essence of the "Golden (do unto others ...) Rule".

We met online Dormouse. Match.com if I'm allowed to name the site.

I 'advertised' for "a deeply compassionate woman with a heart the size of a house" and I got one.

Hippy did not 'advertise' for "a loud opinionated sociopath" but she got one anyway.

I doubt that anyone, other than Hippy herself, is in any doubt at all as to whom got the better end of that particular 'deal'.

Awesome. You're allowed to name the site or post links, btw, since you're a senior member. You're not trying to spam us, so it's totally okay.

If so, what does that mean in the 21st century?

Thank you for the kind words there ladies

Hippy and I have pretty parrallel lives btw. Both had partners that went 'mad' and left us with children with problems to bring up single handed. Both of us have been through very seriously hard financial times.

Hippy is kind with an underlying hardness whilst I am hard with an underlying kindness.

I like to think we work as a couple because we are both mirror images of the others yins and yans.

Hippy is quite a bit of a Hippy FB, yes.

I look and behave more like a benign skinhead myself.


What does 'Hippy' mean in the 21st century?

The whole point, good Sir, is that nobody really knows.

I did use to be a bit of a compouter geek though. Enough that I was once headhunted by Lotus (remember them?) to be the #2 technical support man for their database product 'Lotus Approach'.

Those days are gone though. Today, by coincidence, I will actual be hiring a young geek of my own.

'Lo Sadie,

I know very little about this at all.

Personally I subscribe to the "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" philosophy.

I suspect that this OWS thing is a bit of a battle between those on different sides of the divide of "I want to do as little for as much as I can get".

Not totaly lacking in empathy to those of such philosophy but my sympathy for them is limited at best.

You are a very naughty girl Sequoia!

Short answer though; I agree with everything Mother Theresa had to say on the matter.

I did once post the full speech here but everyone choose to ignore the observable truths that MT pointed out in favour of launching an all out character assasination on MT herself.

Gandhi also wrote on the matter but from an infitely deeply ahimsic viewpoint which, for 99.9999% of the population would give him the appearance of being stark-raving mad.

My cell phone goes 'sky clad' as it's creator intended. I intend to upgrade it to one that can be 'hand fasted' to my PC very soon.

Black! Black sharpies are cool!

Death to Earl Grey and it's, presumably, Aristocratic name sake. English breakfast is best.

Does the sun actualy rise? It's always well over the yard arm by the time I do!

No least favourite foods. If its vegan, and I won't happily eat it, then all that means is that I haven't come across it yet.

Hats! No choice at all ...

Going outside in the cold, for a 'slap head like I, is as much fun as putting ones head in an industrial vice.

Heat it up I would imagine? Not drunk hot chocolate in over 20 years now ..
