12:46 pm - interested in your responses...

recently we had a case of a woman who was apparently diagnosed with cancer. Her name was Nancy Crick, upon her death, it was discovered that she did not infact have cancer at all - there was little information to say what her problem actually was...but that is irrelevant apparently.

My question to you is does the fact that Nancy Crick killed herself thinking she had cancer, when she DID NOT indicate that the idea of Euthanasia brutally flawed, or is someones life their own responsibility and should we be allowed to determine when we will end it all?

12:15 pm - Wow.

So, this has been dead for a while so I figured I'd post to liven it up.

What is it that you do when you feel down? is there anything that you do to make yourself better?

I myself like to change something superficial. It's stupid, but it works. It helps me to take a look at things differently. For example, a few days ago my best friend and I got into a fight. This morning I went and got bangs. It sounds dumb, I know, but it's something that I have been wanting on and off and this morning I just decided to go in and get the cut done. I think that subconsciouly I deny myself of things, but when I feel like this I want to go and fix whatever is wrong but since I can't always I do something that I want.

1:51 am - A confidence booster.... ?

What is the source of self-worth? Can introspection or outside aid create a surety of one's own actions, of life as a whole? Why do many accomplished persons fall prey to insecurity while those with simple lives can rise above it? When a sense of failure is predominant, how can it be overcome? What will topple the mighty and raise the meek?

12:18 am - Greetings!

I am (very) new member...I posted this awhile ago in my journal, but I think it ties in with the mind/body discussion below - so I thought I'd post it here and see what you gals and guys think.

A what-if situation:

What if there really were life-like holographic simulators. Let's say you have one in your home - the size of small bedroom. You could meet 'others' in the room - holographic representations of the real person (who is in their OWN holographic room - looking at YOUR projected hologram). Now. If you are able to talk to this person - and they can hear you, touch this person - and they can feel you, look into their eyes - and have their holographic gaze look back into yours...Exactly how is this different from 'real life'? I've come to the conclusion that it isn't. Not at all. And so when we connect in 'real life' it's not really connecting with the actual flesh...not really hearing the actual voice with our actual ears...but it is the communication from one 'being' to another. And it raises the question of what exactly is doing the communicating...

10:47 pm - You know...

I've never posted here. Hiya everyone.

Just a question:

If you love someone, would you stick by them always though they don't love you and it just hurts you to stick around?

9:40 am - Something a little different...

What are everyone's views on polygamy? How much of a biological necessity is it, and how does our concious mind keep it in check with concepts of religion and so forth?

1:46 am - A suggested topic...

As suggested by shadwstalkr, who are you? Is a person defined as a body, or is a person defined by a mind?

6:35 pm - and now for something completely different ...

What are everyone's thought on equality? Is it fair to see everyone in 'society' as equal?

Are you an egalitarian? If so why ...

If not, why not?

1:07 pm - A moment of mourning please...

Beloved author Douglas Adams passed away Friday at the age of 49 from a heart attack.

I was fond of his work, more than fond. If you have not read any of it, I suggest you find some.

9:40 am - I guess I'll start the ball rolling....

What are everyone's thoughts on perception? Perception by any living thing, but with more emphasis on perception by a mind with awareness and self recognition...
