the absurdity of a god that plays hide-and-seek with himself. i'm not saying it's absurd in a bad way, it's sometimes ecstasy sometimes terror. it is pretty ego-shattering though, most people torture themselves through life with unreasonable expectations.

I hate to say that your post did little to clarify things.

a lot of people go through life competing with others, trying to prove/improve themselves, trying to solve the ultimate puzzle or provide the ultimate answers, and if pantheism is correct (which i also believe) all this competition is ultimately just a struggle against yourself, which to me is the pinnacle of absurdity.

Yes, I agree completely, although I am pretty guilty of obsessing over the search for truth.

it's hard not to, just like it's hard not to talk about once you think you've found it. you probably don't need this advice, but i do: don't fly too close to the sun or the ocean... keep to the middle path.

Mmm yeah, as the old Buddhist saying goes "before enlightenment: chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment: chop wood and carry water"

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I just found this thread. I'm sorry I'm not willing to read the whole 51 pages at the moment but what are we discussing now? There's gotta be something I can try to ridicule.
