Stage 3.5 also tends to include flaming and rioting and homocide.

Djur, I will never look at you the same way again. Well, seeing as how I probably will never look at you, I will never read your posts the same way again. Or something like that.

Cav, you must be the least n00b-ish newbie since... since... since before I got here (which was three months ago IMAGE(tongue03.gif) ). I suppose I should've asked how many of the games you've finished.

You'll be surprised to learn that Djur is not unique; I, too, have had dreams about him being a transsexual and sleeping with Conan O'Brien.

Conan O'Brien? *full-body shivers* The horror!

Anyone else who wants to make a confession involving transexuality and O'Brian?

In defending postmodernism from the conformist establishment, TM references popular literature instead of thinking for himself. Clearly he's big on irony as well.

Thuryl is dead-on-center.

All ways, even the lack thereof, are themselves ways. How does one define a cave without defining the outdoors, and is the outdoors not just a cave to the people in the cave itself? Everything is relative to the cave you are in at any one moment in time.
(It should be noted, of course, that I am merely repeating myself.)

BTW, Thuryl, how would you define thinking for one's self? Is it even possible?

Ah, what fun you people have while I'm away...

TM... if you REALLY want to go this way (and I warn those who probably shouldn't think about this sort of thing to not partake in reading the following) - everything in this world and beyond is relative. If there was no light, we would know no dark. If there was no war, we would have no concept called "peace". The path you choose is only such because there is the illusion of choice.

Everyone follows a set path, defined by themselves and the externalities. It is impossible to stray from their path. However you could think to change it - clairvoyancy, precognition or extra awareness, this is accounted for and is set in the path.

All I know of this world is that I, in some form, whether a puppet, a figment of something's imagination or as my perception tells me now, MUST EXIST. Those who read this cannot KNOW that I exist, simply because they are not me. Equally, to them I may not exist, but they themselves do.

Well... I did warn you.

Heheheh... *tries VERY hard not to burst out laughing*

*fails*

*coughs, splutters and finally stops* *sigh* Congratulations Djur, Alec. The humour is appreciated.

And finally, welcome to Spiderweb Cav, we'll enjoy your stay...

Uh, TM, I'm not sure that Djur actually said anything critical about postmodernism. He just sort of blurted out his confession. I guess on SW that is enough, though.

I don't like Tim O'Brien in general, and I found most of Things They Carried stylistically annoying. It had a few decent parts, but I can think of many authors that I prefer.

I also don't like postmodernist thought in general. It had a few very legitimate criticisms of modernism, but I find it overall rather annoying. But I am out of my depth here: most of my experience with modern philosophy comes from chatting (regularly) with a friend of mine who was in an upper-division modern European intellectual history course.

Alas for Cav's poor topic! It has been assaulted by postmodernism. Oh well, it's a good introduction to Spiderweb, anyway. As someone else (I forget who) said, on Spiderweb everything is political. And religious. And sometimes homosexual.

That was Weedy, as I remember. A bit of a frump and a stuffed shirt at times, to be sure, but, at his best moments, somewhat profound.

I'm far too much of an absolutist, black-and-white ape to put any stock at all in postmodernism.

I'm not sure if that statement is sarcastic, but it's also damned true- your Hinduist religion is incredibly stringent with its morals. I'm not sure how strict you are in *enforcing* them, but the guidelines themselves read like m-w.com

(The part where I replied to Djur was specifying which O'Brien I was implying previously. Conan is a sexy man, even if Timothy is sexier.)

Kelandon, if you want me to try to prove postmodern thought in the objective world(s), I'm going to have to back out. Defining it, of course, is also an act of futility. It is, put simply, the philosophy of nothingness. It's all-but-impossible for creatures of somethingness like every human being on Earth (irony, again, intended) to ever truly be able to contemplate. Box-sculptures and stories about stories are a start, though.

Is this another case of someone accusing me of being something that I don't even know it means? IMAGE(confusee.gif) Hmm...

*runs and grabs dictionary*

Hmm... well that's a cop-out! According to Chambers - postmodern, noun. And that's it. If someone can give me a hint to what it's all about, I'll argue its cause to the ends of the Earth! And beyond! IMAGE(smile002.gif)

I may not win the argument, but at the VERY LEAST I'll have made the opposition feel like it should beat its collective head against a rather solid wall for all the good it's doing! IMAGE(biggrin2.gif) IMAGE(biggrin2.gif)

A few things to remember:

1. I skip over posts if I can tell they have nothing to do with the topic of the thread, unless I'm bored.

2. I am, indeed, female. Anyone who says I'm not just wishes they were. IMAGE(tongue03.gif) However honest mistakes are forgivable, since not everyone goes to Profile pages, I use non-gender-specific screen names and since I don't "act" like a girl anyway.

You have been hanging around internet grrls too long, Cav.

Also, TM: As much as I'd like to delve into a world where objective logic is completely futile, no thank you. If I wanted any truck with that nonsense, I'd still be Lutheran.

Well, TM, the statement was partly sarcastic, but also largely honest. I am an absolutist, obstinate jackass with supreme confidence in his own beliefs and ideas. However, I've changed a bit with time, as seems to be inevitable, and in the process have begun to note and appreciate the presence of shades of grey on many issues.

I'm rather puzzled by your assertion of Hinduism being extensively stringent in terms of moral concerns. Perhaps you're drawing a bit too strongly from excerpts of the Vedas or Upanishads? Be aware that these scriptures are largely obsolete today. Hinduism has most certainly evolved with time, and the modern version, as practiced by millions of people, is almost entirely founded in the Bhagavad Gita, with the older Vedas and Upanishads playing very little part. I don't believe the Bhagavad Gita moralizes extensively at all; it mostly deals with the concepts of reincarnation and moksha, and the gradual progress required for the attainment of such even-mindedness.

Most importantly, no real form of punishment is ever even so much as hinted at for those who choose to break moral codes. Hindus believe in no Hell for sinners, or any sort of equivalent region of pain and torture. Rather, reincarnation is the only "punishment" for wrongdoers. As such I think it's hardly fair of you to paint Hinduism as some sort of harsh, punitive brand of religion. It's really, at least in its current form, a benign, tolerant construct.

As for whether I choose to strictly or loosely interpret the teachings of my religion, I've always maintained that scriptural literalism is a dangerous and foolish practice, and that those who choose to interpret religious scripture in such a manner are afflicted by a lack of confidence in their own powers of ethical reasoning. I've formulated my own belief system by blending elements of Hindu scripture, secular logic, and original thought. I haven't incorporated the whole of the Bhagavad Gita into my belief system; rather, I've gone through individual points, carefully evaluating them, identifying which ones seem to ring true to me. I've found such a procedure works rather well.

Although it's true that I do believe in absolute truth, and hold strongly to several principles, I'm hardly a strict, moralizing type of person. I'd elaborate more, but as I'm tiring of typing, and as I seem to have said quite enough for now, I'll leave it at this. If you're interested, though, I'll be happy to elaborate in a later post.

Halfway through, he turned into Craig Kilborn. This disgusted me and I shot him, while still performing the act. I was then dragged away by burly Irishmen to the back of their castle-like casino and viciously beaten.

Also, I think Andy Richter had his way with me once or twice.

Stug- Perhaps I used the wrong vocabulary (lol). What I was proposing was that Hinduism preaches a one-way approach (Dharma, unless my knowledge is inaccurate [lol again]) to reaching enlightenment. Regardless of how ambiguous Hinduism may or may not be in regards to the nature of that one way, I have never heard it say that such a way didn't exist.

I s'pose I'm trying to compare it, at least in part, to the Catholic concept of Eccumenicalism- in that, it doesn't matter much what you believe, as long as it's "good" and is something in general.
