Subject:Ah, the parallels in life !

Mood: amused.
Hey..it is high time something happened here !
~ Ofcourse, everything happens in its own time ...

"There are two types of people in the world, my young friend. One type is people-oriented. When they
make conversation, it is about people ~ what people are doing, what someone said, how someone feels.
The other group is idea-oriented. When they make conversation, they talk about ideas and concepts and objects."

These very familiar sounding words are part of this most unusual story titled: 'God's Debris'.

You are all welcome to this free story. All those who love Richard Bach's works should have their ears pricked.

Be warned though: it is addictive, and as the author states: not suitable for children under 14.

I've just joined, hello. I am a 24-year-old self-supporting undergraduate anthro and psych major from NYC. I currently work for an organization that develops the economy via developing local industry environmentally. I am interested in sustainable development, but will be leaving this job to be a program associate at a dialogue/conflict resolution organization that facilitates dialogue between different religious groups.

I generally think of things from a holistic perspective, and this community seems very interesting.

I went to the theatre on Thursday night. Despite spending over 30 years in community theatre, I stopped going to see plays a long time ago. I found I couldn’t concentrate on the play because I was so busy critiquing the directing, the acting, the writing, even the set and staging.

I believe I’ll go to see more live theatre now. There are obviously still plays out there that are not to be missed.

What I'm thinking about today...what's the deal with pain?

I know, it's supposed to act as a warning system to the body that something is not right, but too often the pain is related to something that cannot be changed or fixed, and becomes a chronic problem.

Why would we evolve something like that? Why didn't we evolve some sort of cut-off, like 48 hours? If the pain hasn't been attended to in 48 hours, it's done it's duty as a warning and it just stops?

A woman I work with doesn't feel pain. It's rare, but it does occur in some people. She gave birth to three children with no labor pains. She's now approaching 60, and having lived without pain doesn't seem to have done her any particular harm.

What do you think?

Welcome to the new community talkideas

From the userinfo:

There are two types of people: those who talk about people (including themselves) and things, and those who talk about ideas. This place is for the latter sort.

Of course, I do talk about myself sometimes, everybody does. Usually it’s because I need to explain the events or train of thought that led to a particular idea.

Today I’m thinking about the survival of consciousness after death.

I think that if this does occur there is no way to show or prove it. Ghost stories just don’t do it for me. I don’t see dead people. I doubt that anyone does.

But then there’s this new NBC television series, Medium. It’s based on the life of a real person, Allison DuBois of Phoenix, Arizona. Ms DuBois has a web site: http://www.allisondubois.com/ and she’s written a book. She says she sees, and talks to, dead people all the time.

In the series, Allison (Patricia Arquette) is employed by the District Attorney’s office. This would appear to lend legitimacy to her ability. However, her bio on the NBC site for the show http://www.nbc.com/Medium/bios/Allison_DuBois.shtml says otherwise:

Allison donates her time to missing/murdered persons and criminal cases for agencies across the country. She is contacted by law enforcement and families to help find missing and murdered people. Allison also assists in jury selection for District Attorney’s Offices. Each of these is a means for her to give back to the world for being so blessed.

I wonder just how far from reality the television show strays? On the show we see Allison solving crimes and sending criminals to death row, based on information she receives psychically from the victims. The real Allison has stated in interviews that she's very much in favor of capital punishment and the death penalty. Wonder if she ever gets visits from the ghosts of the killers, and if not, why not?

What do you think?
