Вопрос дня: Загробный мир

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

Разумеется, да.  Потому, что убеждён в бесконечности жизни, убеждён в необходимости развития тонкой энергии (души, духа - как хотите).  Если бы этого не было, жизнь была бы бессмысленна и глупа. И не к чему было бы стремиться.  А те, кто полагает обратное, живут одним днём, только для себя, для брюха и хапают, хапают .... Вот и вся "большая разница", как говорят в благословенной Одессе. 

Writer's Block: Band on the run

Which song associated with musician Paul McCartney is your favorite, and why?

"Let It Be"..."When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me..."

A dear friend lost her entire family within a span of less than three years. Her mother and older brother, then her father. As she was driving, questioning everything..."Let It Be" came on the radio and she knew exactly what she need to do. It gave her the strength she needed and it often does it for me as well. She had the song played in church for her father because her mother had such a devotion to the Blessed Mother.

She is a wonderful that was there for me when I lost my father last year. She is more like family than just a friend. Songs can build you up when you need the strength.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

Duh!  Unfortunately that's impossible, the only way to know for sure if there is anything after life is to die. Nobody can say otherwise for sure, that's why people choose to believe in an after life stories, create religions, etc... because death is the great unknown and fearing it is our in our M.O.

If you were a cross-breed between two animals, what animals would they be, and why?

A Dolphin and a Octopus because Dolphin's are so friendly and playful it there had tennicals to reach out with. We could actually know there true nature. And would be able to tell the good Dolphins apart from the evil ones. As of now we never have a way of knowing. Which ones might swim with on there fin and save us from the sharks or which ones might bumps us off to make sure they wouldn't get eaten.

Dad:If you find out you like a boy at school, never talk to him again. I will kill him. kthx.
Me: So...ignoring your answer that did not even have the slightest relevance to my question, does that mean I can go to the Selena Gomez concert???
Dad: No.

You sons-of-bitches. I notice this posted question just as I got to tell my brother "I love you". He has a brain tumor and if it's not benign, he's dead. 

 

I grew up in a haunted house. Dead things aren't mysterious, nor scary. What happens when you die? Well you get to choose that in your life. What do YOU choose?

Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?


I would like to see Hannibal King done properly, a Phillip Marlowe with fangs. Through these mean graveyards, a man must walk who is not mean himself. NOT some modern re-make of him meant to be more compatible with how they re-wrote Blade for the movies. King was one of the earliest of hero vampires, and I think the first one to be unqualifiedly good, not just careful about who they murder.

If you were reincarnated as an animal, which would you choose to be in your next life, and why?

A fox.  Though probably not a wild one, that's a rough life.  Maybe someone's well cared-for pet, to be fed the best food and petted and played with and to live without a care in the world.

Come on.  Who wouldn't want to live a life where you'd get hand-fed treats just for being cute? http://youtu.be/BqQLAG5EeRg

Writer's Block: Showing your pride

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

I strongly believe in defending children. I believe in defending children who have been abused or neglected or harmed in any other way. I could careless if they are a bully themselves. If the child was hurt in any way they deserve to be defended. I never thought it was a good excuse for someone to act out all because something bad happened to them and I still don't, but a child is still developing. They still have time to be adjusted and possibly put on the correct path. I don't believe in giving up on anybody, especially children. Why? They deserve a chance. A chance that they really never received in the first place. Children should be supported. End of story.

What does it matter? It's not like if you don't like what happens, you can just choose not to die.

Just live your life. No point in worrying about what happens later. If you've had a good run, it's only going to be a fulfillment rather than a disappointing finish.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?


Yes.
If the Abrahamic God existed, I could avoid going to hell.
If it didn't, I would still like to know. If there would be thing like Summerland, Tuonela, Avalon or if there wasn't any after life, I wouldn't probably change my ways much. But then if I should live according to the Koran, Bible etc. to avoid eternal torture I would have to change quite a lot. Though I'm not sure if I'd still change any of my ways, because a God that would see love & other fun things as wrong is a God I'd be not really happy to follow.

I would totally want to know. Infact I've been worried and wonderign about this myself lately. Is there anything after we die?  Or is there nothing?
The human imagination is exceedingly powerful, so in the end do we just stop? have we concocted something that does not exist?
I truly wish there was a way to know this.

Writer's Block: Time to move on

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

This is so relevant to me. In two months, I'll be (happily or unhappily) uprooted from my perch in New York City, and moving to Florence for four months. There are a lot of things I'm looking forward to about moving to Italy: the chance to see all of Europe, meeting Italians, seeing ~the land of my ancestors~, perfecting my language skills, defiling the Vatican, etc. (just kidding...maybe.)

But New York. Ah, New York. Light of my life. Blood in my veins.

I think I have always known, deep inside me, that I would leave New York. And I know, just as strongly, that I'll always be back.

I'll miss the scream of steel as the subway car rolls in to the station--not to mention the convenience a twenty-four hour subway system affords. I'll miss knowing that no matter what I want to do, no matter what the time of day, I'll always be able to pull out my Android and find somewhere in this city that I can satisfy my craving. I'll miss the dirty Brooklyn underbelly, the swanky Manhattan apartments. I'll miss Washington Square Park, Central Park, Thompkins Square Park, Prospect Park. I'll miss the perfect bagel, one dollar pizza, St. Mark's Place. I'll miss waking up every morning, knowing that I live in one of the greatest fucking cities on Earth, and fuck you, because I am forever a product of this grimy, gorgeous place.

And yes, I'll miss hipsters, too.

Вопрос дня: Загробный мир

Думаю, да. Это все же интересно, хотя возможно, после того, как узнаешь станет и страшно. Возможно, кто-то бы стал себя лучше вести, испугался, возможно наоборот, так как пришел бы к другим выводам. Да и написать было бы о чем, после увиденного. Конечно, мало кто поверил бы, но ведь такой жанр как фантастика или мистика, тоже пользуется популярностью, а сюжет был бы не плохим, тем более, что писать пришлось бы не с головы, а реальных событий, которые уже видел. Важно было бы и сконцентрироваться на других событиях, на том, чего требует от нас жизнь, что бы не думать только о загробном мире и не сойти с ума. лишний интерес может ещё более плохо, чем незнание, ведь он серьезно способен навредить человеку и вывести из нормального состояния.

Either an octopus, because their brains are at the same level of Mollusk evolution that human brains are (they don't have civilization, probably, because they aren't as social as we are), a whale, again because of the intelligence, but also because of their complex communications. Or, stepping down a couple scales, a wolf.

Aw man, I wanna be a housecat to a little girl. I'd love her and nuzzle her and sleep with her in her bed. We'd play pretend and house and chase each other. Then I'd be there for her when she grows up and watch her succeed at life and make friends. I'd always wait for her to get home on her bed, then crawl into her lap when she works on homework. And then, when it's time for her to leave the nest, I'd show her how much I love her and how proud I am of her, then let her go.

Did I go first before my future husband, or the other way around? It will go to show who my real friends were and who the real friends of my children will be.

I actually think about this all the time, and ask people this question a lot, too. Uh.. I used to wonder what it was like to be a dolphin, and that would have been my answer, but then it occurred to me that it must be TERRIFYING living out there, in the open ocean.. looking down, and all you see is black.. not knowing what's underneath you, or around you, if you're surrounded by seaweed.. FREAKS ME THE FUCK OUT. So, I dunno, I'd probably want to try being a squirrel or something. Top few answers are squirrel, rat, dolphin, some kinda bird, uh.. ..yeah.

Нет. Хотя поймал себя на этой мысли, только после того, как задал себе вопрос именно в такой форме.

А ведь вокруг этого крутиться и религия и сознание человека.

Теперь я понимаю, что возможно самый неизбежный вопрос, какой только можно представить - меня не волнует. И это радостно, потому как можно с чистой совестью сосредоточиться на чем-то земном)

Реинкарнация - лучший вариант (да и, собственно, единственный для меня правдоподобный).
В таком случае для хороших людей всегда свое применение в будущем найдется, равно как и "плохим" воздастся поделом.

 

PS: Я человек не религиозный, даже наоборот - всему предпочитаю научное и логическое обоснование. Посему для меня какой-либо "божий суд" исключен. Однако, энергия, заключенная в человеческом разуме (aka душа) не может просто так пропасть. Помрем - тогда и увидим :)

Cats used to be regarded as gods, and they're awfully sure of themselves; rightfully so.
Plus they don't pay any attention to people flailing for their attention unless they earn it, and they've got some nasty claws when they want to use them.

Adored, pampered, with the option to still kick some ass and maim some little annoying fluffy creatures when they get annoyed?

All that sounds pretty much ideal to me.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?


I don't go in for the feel-good malarkey of, "If we knew for certain, then we'd no longer have faith and that would render religion pointless." That's the militant skeptical agnostic in me talking. So yes, I'd want to know, no matter what The TruthTM happened to be.

Quite simply, I have no strong beliefs regarding the existence or nonexistence of an afterlife. It would be nice to think there's something, but I've put much more energy into figuring out if I believe in a higher power than I've put into mapping out the undiscovered country. My feelings and experiences tell me that the gods I believe in are real. My logic tells me I'm a nutcase. Sometimes logic wins; sometimes it doesn't. My faith is an oscillating fan.

But whatever I feel at a given point in time, my standard philosophical position is firmly agnostic: Even if I believe my gods are real, I acknowledge that I could be wrong and there could be Nobody out there. That's just me being honest with myself. And even when I feel as strongly as I've ever felt that They exist, I've not got a clue about the afterlife. So if there isn't one, logic wins for good. If there is, well, bring on the wine for Dionysos. In any case, I'd have an answer I can't dissolve in either a puff of logic or a heady dose of mysticism. Works for me.

A cat, because I 've always loved them for their agility, grace. I grew up with a lot of cats and  I have always wondered what it be like if I were one. I'm not the most graceful human being so having that cat-like gracefulness would be nice, I think.

Writer's Block: See you on the other side

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?
No. Because no matter what happens, I want to live my life based on my directives and moral conscious choice. I already went through a phase during the time that lead me to quitting religion. I have gone through Existentialism and it nearly bordered on Nihilism wherein I started to question the very purpose of continuing to live life and chase after my dreams if the world is going to end tommorrow and literally one half of the world is not getting a very happy ending. I don't care whether there is a hell, heaven or even nothingness upon death, I just want to be able to say 'I lived a good life' upon my death bed. Hence why I rather not have anything interfere with that.

If you were reincarnated as an animal, which would you choose to be in your next life, and why?

I would be a cat. People who know me would have a pretty good idea why, but I might as well explain anyway. First off, my hubby always calls me his little kitty cat, and it has become a bit of a joke between us whenever one of my cats comes over and sits on my lap/computer/face. He always asks me to translate what they're saying, because, after all, I'm a cat aren't I?

Second, I do have very feline tendencies. I'm sly, flexible, agile, smart, I meow, I purr, I love getting the bottom of my chin tickled......wait, what? I'm seriously none of those things!!

Okay, so cats are just cool okay? And adorable!! Seriously, if I had to be reincarnated, I think karma should be on my side and give me a lazy life of laying in the sun and getting my tummy rubbed. I've had a hard enough time already.
