Messages (A Philosophy)
I have formed my own metaphysical beliefs, or philosophy. I have searched high and low for the answers: some minds say: reason religion out, because there is no reason to it. Others say, reason science out, because we only find skepticism. I mean, what is lift? Perhaps Idealism... but what is that? On the other hand, we know the brain exists, but nobody can find the soul or the mind, where do we get all those thoughts, where do they come from-a mind we can't find, and how do they develop? Is this not the deeper philosophy? Or should be? Anyhow, we can look at motion and development for our answers that has to do with thoughts perhaps, that is: time and space, we could pull in the planets and sun and the universe to work this equation out, but it won't fit. We are who we are; I grant you that, full of answers and questions. Some say we are who we are because we didn't fall at the mercy of the beasts, long ago. There might be some truth to this. But are we into looking for the mind-or not? if so perhaps we may want to look at sensations and perceptions which boils down to awareness of stimuli, taking atoms of sensation and molding them into sense; or messages. It gets rather web like doesn't it.

To be quite frank and honest, in all my laboring to find the most evident worthy of philosophies, the best I could come up with was that I know I'll not get a cold in the winter months if I breathe through my nose... that's a shame isn't it? (5-24-2012)
Alexander's Tutor
(Concerning the Love Poem)
"Why do you read love poems?" asked, the adolescent, Alexander, to Kebes (whom was his tutor):
"A love poem," said Kebes, "is definite, which love isn't. A love poem contains nothing, but we like to listen to them, recite them until our entire bodies are inflamed and consumed. Why? You ask. It is the curse put upon love, which promises divinity for the soul. One of the four elements that mankind needs to be whole. Without the four, man vomits out his soul."
"And what are the four?" asked Alexander, to Kebes.
"Mysticism, understanding of one's own mind, physical well being, and communal sharing."
"Which one is the most important?" asked Alexander.
"Should you lack in one, you lack in all; in a like manner, should you betray one, for another, you betray the wholeness of yourself," said Febes.
