Imagine a man who was born with no sensory input. He is in outer space, feels nothing, hears nothing, sees nothing, smells nothing, tastes nothing. Can this man think?

I say no. The language of thought is created through patterning sensory signals to symbolize something else, inevitably sensory. It's interesting: without external input, the mind is nothing. The mind is defined through its work; without external input, it has nothing to work with.

Perhaps the most "pretentious" thing anyone can do is to use "brutal honesty" as an excuse for cruelty and rudeness.

I can't remember when it last occurred that I spent less than half a day introspecting. Does everyone else out there waste away this much energy? To what point is introspection worthwhile, and at what point does reflection become a waste?

Yeah, yeah... I've decided to revive it. I want the community to be a place for musings on life, into which people post duplicate copies out of their own journals... if that ends up happening. That, and it'll of course be a place for random idiocy (no thanks to you.) Whatever happens, I'm giving it another shot.

I wonder if other people have similar surreal moments...
There are times when I need to remember something, and I remember it, and the context of how I learned it, an everything, right up until the point when I can finally use it. And then I use it, and suddenly, the memory's gone. Sure, the exact fact I needed to remember is still there, but when I think back, "how did I know that?" the connection is gone. Except for the fact that I remember having the memory, I might as well have not known what I needed to know until the moment I used it; the source of the fact in my head is now the moment that I used it, as the old source has fallen away.

An example:
Last night, I downloaded the song, "If I had a million dollars." I've always loved this song, ever since I first heard it played at Battle of the Bands a year and a half ago. And I knew that it was sung by the band Barenaked Ladies, and how I knew that. But now, if I go back and look at the file on my computer, it's almost unsettling that I knew who sang the song: mentally, the fact that the band singing "When I Fall" sings "If I Had a Million Dollars" no longer connects. Sure, I know it, because I downloaded both songs last night, and I know that I had the full connection in my head then. But it's gone now, and re-establishing it will, unfortunately, obliterate any hope of recovering the old memory. Unless, of course, I'm schizoid.

Why does such a silly thing matter to me? I don't know. Maybe it's that I prize my memory, and everything about it, too highly. I Love the fact that for almost any moment in my life, if somebody mentions it to me, I can remember the silliest intimate details. And then, when I suddenly lose a memory, however small, it hits me that moments of mine are as mortal as moments of anyone else. It scares me; what if I were to lose the memory of something really worthwhile--hugging someone I love goodbye, or staring out into a magnificent sunrise with a friend of mine and engulfing myself in the beauty of it all?

Maybe that's why I started my LJ. To capture and remember those moments. That's why I wrote down everything for more than a year: in case any one of those moments were to become suddenly important later in life, I could never lose it.

i think it should be mandatory to see a full time masseuse regularly. like doctor's appointments and dental checkups. everyone should be required to have a shrink and a massage therapist for stress control. ;)

quest: the medicine man. Respected in his age and wise in the ways of the world, he is woefully bemused at the antics of kids today. He keeps his bag of tricks close at hand, and leaves his rapier wit loose in its sheath. Which is why he's always stickin' himself with it by accident.

PERFORMER
oleostrut

Like just 6% of the population you are a PERFORMER (DEAF)--personable, self-assured, and excellent under pressure. You are extroverted and strong-willed, which, in combination means you are good with people and aren't willing to let opportunity pass you by. Congratulations. I'm sure all the peons you've stepped on never saw it coming and didn't feel a thing.

You like being naked.

Anyhow, you have formidable creative talents, and you often following what your heart tells you instead of your logical mind. Your exuberance can earn you many friends and admirers, despite your ambition, or it can intimidate the less confident into keeping their distance. It's also possible you're Madonna.

What is the best approach to morals? Having a moral code, with specific things that one should and shouldn't do, or approaching each moral dilemma entirely situationally, worrying only about what would achieve the best possible outcome for everyone?

ever notice how computer generated women look more realistic than men? i went to see "the mummy returns" last night, and there was an ad for the FF movie. the women you could hardly tell from real, but the men were obvoisly animated. why? their scriffiness was not quite random enough, their faces a bit too smooth, the jawlines not quite shaded properly.. the same with the Scorpion King at the end of Mummy. When its a distance shot, its ok, but the expressions and features close up are off.
i think actually this is not a matter of the animator's ability but of society itself. the women look real because PEOPLE ARE USED TO SEEING PERFECT LOOKING FEMALE FEATURES. thats what makes the men seem off. they are too perfect. they arn't real cuz they arn't rough hewn. but a smooth featured, perfectly proportioned woman is ok, because in real life they do so much to make themselves look nice.
