  1. I miss me already and I'm not even gone.
  2. The fourth dimension is what I was speak to when I said time/space except the placement of the object is simultaneous, that is, movement in space at zero time. - disappears and reappears in another place at the same time. More than four dimensions is too much for my brain at the present time.
  3. Hello, Orphanffxiii and welcome. Your membership is approved and we're happy you found your way to us. We look forward to accompanying you on some of the way that you still have to go. Please take the time to read the post pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum Terms and Rules. This covers all you need to know when getting started. For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day. Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you, Marblehead and the TDB team Hi Orphan, No, I don't know what you know. But I know what I know. Regarding the other part of your question, yes, our knowing is pretty much alike. You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started. May you enjoy your time here. Marblehead
  4. Yes, I can see you are in need of attention.
  5. I hope you aren't expecting me to disagree with that.
  6. Yes. But I still had to look.
  7. Same thing only different.
  8. I have been presented this argument before and really, it is the best argument regarding this concept. But the past is written in stone, not only remembered. This is observable. I was sleeping before I awoke. I was younger yesterday than I am today. This is true. Tomorrow hasn't happened yet so all we can do is assume that there will be a tomorrow. And tomorrow's today will be yesterday - the past. Well, in the past I made a pot of coffee so I am able to drink some now. In the future I will have to make another pot so that I will have some to drink in the future's now moment. Yes, thee "now moment" is the only time that really matters. But we do need remember the lessons of the past and we also need prepare for the future should we have one. This is true. All I can show you is the "now moment". But I can show you images of the past and I can also show you anticipations of the future, or at least tell you about them. This is true but isn't life all about mental images? True. Only the "now moment" exists. But the past did exist and with a little luck there will be a future. Yes, sometimes in life we must make assumptions. And ideas equal life. Personally? No. But understanding the processes of nature leads me to believe that there was a time I did not exist. There is no evidence to the contrary to cause me to think otherwise. I agree with your theme that we should live in the "now moment" and not concern our self too much with either the past or the future. But still, the past is important because most of us have learned valuable lessons from previous "now moments" and we should also devote a little planning for our future "now moments" should we be fortunate enough to have some. We can't change the past, but we can act now, in the present, to hopefully make our future days more enjoyable
  9. Good posture. I'm a little bent over.
  10. I think that science is going to find that wormholes are going to be unattainable and even useless if there are such things.
  11. But I'm still here and I get to mess with you occasionally.
  12. The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
  13. Oftentimes, one strips oneself of passion and desires in order to see the Mystery of Life; othertimes, one regards life with passion in order to see its Manifest Forms. Therefore, those constantly without desires will perceive the Secret of Life; those constantly with desires will see only its Manifest Forms.
  14. When I consider the concept of useful/useless I restrict it to only myself. That is, what might be useless to me might be very useful to someone else and what might be useful to me might be useless to someone else. Then too, included in this is the concept of letting other people use us. They use us until we have become useless to them and then they discard us like a piece of trash. To remain useless to others allow us to live our life the way we want to.
  15. It was not my intention to belittle their thoughts on this subject. However, I think that if an honest search were done of why this concept came forth in their mind we will find that they are a result of religious thoughts planted in their brain at a very early age. BTW I consider the fourth dimension to be space/time. But, at the present time there is no way for us to travel in space/time.
