Перестала бы делать все о чем потом сожалею. Например, обижать близких, злиться, не лгала бы(бывает, ложь по-мелочам). Попыталась бы все успеть, завершить все дела. Продолжала бы учиться , более усердно. Не позволяла бы меня жалеть в школе. Никто бы не узнал о моей болезни, только близкие.

Writer's Block: Freewill vs. fate

Love is a choice but we don't always make the right choices. That is why I would rather not think that love is based on fate. If that were the case, my fate would lead me towards loving people that I can't save and in the end I am left with nothing. Recently, that is the case.

So, I will stick with the idea that love is a choice. It gives me hope that one day, I will choose to love someone capable of loving me back.

Как бы поменялась Ваша жизнь, если бы Вы узнали, что смертельно больны?
Полтора года назад мы говорили об этом с режиссером моего диплома Дашей. Поэтому, я знаю точный порядок действий.
Я бы продала одну из квартир, чтобы были деньги на осуществление плана. Потом я бы закатила громкую вечеринку с шампанским рекой, куда бы пригласила всех родственников и друзей, а на следующий день уехала бы из Москвы. Сначала в Мексику, чтобы посмотреть на пирамиды. Потом в Камбоджу, чтобы увидеть Ангкор-Ватт. И, наконец, в Париж. В столице Франции я бы сняла что-то вроде квартиры-чердака на Монмартре. Поставила бы себе большое кресло, а вокруг целые горы книг. Каждый день, я бы ела в брассери, дышала воздухом этого города и гуляла по его улицам. А вечерами читала бы русскую классическую литературу, вроде Пушкина и Толстого. И так, пока бы не пришел конец.

В этой ситуации как в фильме. Либо поддаёшься панике и медленно умираешь, либо стараешься выжать из отведённого тебе срока по максимуму (в кино обычно такие люди чудесным образом побеждают болезнь и живут дальше долго и счастливо). Лично мне по душе второй вариант. Как ни крути, верить надо только в лучшее.

Writer's Block: Blast to the past

If you could travel back in time, what would you tell your 10-year-old self?
I would say so many things, give some advice that I know well I do not follow. But come on!

Would tell me to study very, very much, that not for one minutecome to think it was silly.

Would tell me that in the future more valuable friendships. Some friendships need to be watered more frequently than others.

Would tell me to learn from new to be less impulsive, reckless.

Speak so that I respect more the feelings of others. Love is no joke, even if it's love child (perhaps this is the largest and mostsincere.).

Would tell me to start to develop patience as a child in the future I would need much.

Would tell me to think long before you do anything, because someerrors are not forgivable.

Would tell me to learn to be strong since then, as in the future, Iwould pick up a lot and need that strength.

Speak that no matter what people say, promise. Ultimately, each onewill look only for yourself and you will be left if it is expecting something from someone.

Speak you have two friends who will never abandon you, God and the mirror.

And last but not least, talk to enjoy the childhood because it is awonderful moment that will be missed forever. Take advantage ofmy grandparents because in the future, will only have memories ofhow good they were and how these moments were priceless.

Is love destined or is it a choice?
sorry

This is hardly a freewill vs fate question.  I mean please,.  If we're talking Determinism vs Free Will at least come up with a better question.

like "If all our actions are determined by society and our subjective perception, how can crimes be punished?"

or "Can Combatibilism solve the problem of Free Will vs Determinism?"

or "Does Free Will only exist in the fact that we percieve our actions to be determined by choice?"

or ...

You get the picture.  Just... Never ask a philosophy student about this :D  I was about to start banging on about Ayer!

Anyway, this is obviously a concept based question.  What they're really asking about is the responder's concept of love.

Is love destined or is it a choice?
well if you are giving me those two choices i definitely would say freewill. Fate is only a device of literature. i choose who i like and if i enjoy them enough I grow to love them. But love is ephemeral. I may love someone at one time and later come to even loathe them. This is not to say that people choose to be gay or straight, because they don't; just wanted to make that clear. Hope that helps.

I used to believe in destiny. I used to believe that one true person would show up on my doorstep one day. And one day, someone did just that. She even had pie. But it was all a lie. It was one of my biggest mistakes. Now... I'm not sure if I believe in love at all.

Судьба включает некоторую долю безысходности. Выбор? Тоже не совсем верно. Выбираешь не колбасу на пожувать. Любовь это "бзззз", это просто счастливый момент. Наверное это случайность, везение. Ответ: отвечать на такие вопросы - кормить троллей.

Is love destined or is it a choice?


It's a choice for rational, clear-headed people. For some it's not a choice because they are swept away by a flood of hormones, pheromones and unfulfilled psychological needs to the point that they can't judge the risks and benefits of falling in love with someone before they do. The sense of destiny when you find someone you're compatible with is an illusion, and you would feel it upon meeting anyone you share compatibility with, anywhere in the world. The world is full of people you could potentially be romatically compatible with, but you only meet a small sample of those people in your own little corner of the world, so you feel erroneously that the agreeable person you happen to meet is the One, the Only One. This may seem pessimistic, but I think it is actually liberating. Even if you lose one person you care for, you haven't burned your bridges with everyone you could potentially feel the same way about. Those feelings are in you, not intrinsic to the other person.

Is love destined or is it a choice?

Ugh.  I actually think the idea of a perfect "other half" (sometimes referred to by the phrase "soul mate", but meaning other half) is actually deeply damaging to everyone involved.

We don't necessarily get to choose who our heart goes for.  You could think someone should meet all your criteria and be perfect, but feel nothing moving in your heart in that person's presence or when you think about them.  And then, you could know with absolute certainty that someone else would be a Very Very Bad Idea in terms of dating, and your heart chases after them anyways.  I firmly do NOT believe that means you are "destined to be together" or have past karma that needs to be resolved by dating (even if it would seem like dating again).  I also firmly believe that having been in an intimate relationship in a past life DOES NOT mean it would be a good idea at all in this one.  Sometimes there really are good reasons why a relationship ended, and it may be best to accept that.

I think that as a pan-affectionate lesbian who is considered conventionally attractive by many straight men, I got hit with this from several different angles.  My heart can still chase men, even though I have never been sexually attracted to a man - my emotion needs and sexual needs are not intertwined so strongly that I only get attractions one way with people I could also be compatible with the other way.  I've been sexually attracted to women I would never actually get into a regular relationship with or trust emotionally, and I've fallen in love with men, and even dated quite a few, and never felt any sexual attraction to them whatsoever, even if I did feel very strong trust and love for them.

And, I've had "sensitive new age guys" try to approach me with One of the World's Worst Pickup Lines more than once: "Hey, I think you and I were together in a past life", and after I am vastly unimpressed "But you're my soul mate!  I need you."  Oh yeah, that's attractive.  I can tell up front you don't give a flying $#!^ about my needs and desires, or have any interest in considering consequences of past mistakes.  Ooh, how enticing is that?  

The last guy who kept insisting on that one pissed me off enough that I came up with a mean snarky response:
"Ok, let's say we were together in a past life.  Are you good at math?  How many past lives have I had? [note: these guys always insist I'm an "old soul" too]  I'm polyamorous by nature; how many lovers have I had per lifetime?  Multiply my number of lives by number of lovers.  Do the math dude, I currently have 6 BILLION soul mates on this planet.  Take a number."


Snarkiness aside, I really do see the idea of having one single perfect soul mate as problematic on several levels.  I think it encourages possessiveness, clinging to a relationship that isn't good for either of the people involved, screening by the completely wrong standards, going into relationships repeatedly with unrealistic expectations, and shirking responsibility 'because Fate meant it to happen' or 'it was in the stars' or some other excuse to not think about the consequences of one's actions or choices.  Plus, it does nothing to explain how anyone could possibly be polyamorous by nature; even if you say that some of Plato's original souls could have split into more than one part, that would still only cover a limited scope of polyfidelity.  There's a lot more polyamory out there, some of it working better than most common examples of monogamy and/or poly-fi.  Human relationships have a much broader range than what suits certain political power structures.  (I see Plato's as conveniently serving his own political/cultural context rather well)


Getting back to the original question a bit more, while I believe we don't necessarily get to choose who the heart goes for, we do get to choose whether we pursue that interest or not, and/or whether to pursue a relationship with someone the heart has not leapt off a cliff for.  I'm still proud of myself for NOT going for the first 2 women I had a very strong crush on in years, in my first year in California.  Both of them were well beyond monogamous into codependent territory.  Me and codependence are seriously not compatible, at all, not even a little.  I do see variation in how much I will depend on a partner or let them/ want them to depend on me, and I do see interdependence as a totally healthy thing.  But what experience I have with people with codependent patterns has been Very Very Bad.

And, I have sometimes tried dating people I did not have strong heart-pounding feelings for up front, to see if something would develop over time.  Sometimes it did, sometimes it did not.  It took me until last year to finally figure the main key ingredients for whether it happened or not for me: trust, and compassion.  If they proved very trustworthy and compassionate, my heart would go there.  If they were flaky, unreliable, or I questioned their integrity, or they never showed a great deal of compassion ever, then my heart stayed nice and reserved.  That really did seem to explain all of my past experience with this.  So, once I figured that out, I've been working with that information, and it seems to be working really well actually. :)

So, I guess to summarize, I would say we definitely do not get to pick who our heart goes for up front, but we do have a lot of important choices to consider as far as relationships go.  I see responsibility going the same way: I would not blame someone for who their heart showed interest in (which includes when someone I'm not interested in has feelings for me).  But, I do hold people responsible for inappropriate behavior and bad choices, even if the behavior or choices were driven by the feelings in their heart.

And the funny thing is, I'm still a romantic, but only by some definitions. ;)

It is a choice. It is a choice that is highly influenced by many parameters however. For some people, it clicks immediately, the parameters all (or mostly) line up, and you have found someone you love. When it clicks together like this, it can feel like fate. Some people are much more likely to be with someone depending on a number of factors as well.

I think that many people think they have been in love, maybe even many times. How do you know it until you feel it? Sometimes it can be fate (a long lost friend), sometimes by choice (someone that you do everything to impress). I think this is a trick question.

LOVE IS A CHOICE. Everyone should choose to ignore it because it's a waste of time and energy and brainspace. You'll waste your time when you could be doing more useful things and you always have to think of the other person and it's just too complicated. Don't love and your life will be so much more simpler and easier. 

Well, I meant don't love people in that lovey-dovey way. The kind of way in which you want to devote your entire life to them.
Of course, why not love your career, hopes, dreams, and ideals? Stop crushing on boys and girls and start loving the future, so you can do awesome things like get a stable job D:<

Is love destined or is it a choice?
I think love is a choice, not the emotion itself but the choice to act on the emotion. So many people talk about how they met "the one" and how true love is real and how destiny brought them together. I just think that maybe they met one of the ones, because what if the person you were destined to be with was in Germany or something while you're in Minnesota? Not to mention that a lot of true love scenarios end with a break up just as often as they end in marriage. You can't necessarily choose how you feel about people, but you can choose the people you date/talk to/etc.

What’s the best way to mend a broken heart?
A good cry.
Honestly, seriously.

Sure you can go out with the girls and complains and trash talk, but it's only a momentary fix. You have to honestly let your emotions out to get over whatever it is.

Then promptly stuff your face with something you enjoy. Maybe that doesn't work for everyone, but do something you enjoy, something that you'd normally feel guilt about.

It's about enjoying the little things that make you happy and help you thorough the day, they will help you thorough whatever it is. Don't lose sight of it by trying to reason it all out, or tell yourself you'll gain weight and hate yourself later blah blah. Typical womanly excuses!

In all honesty, No. There are too many people who want and enjoy taking advantage of others.

Problem is they have spent generations worth of money not only in debiting us but our children and children's children.) As long as there are users and those being used there will always be war between the two. As long as there are people who feel their feelings out weigh the feelings and beliefs of others there will be unrest.

Is love destined or is it a choice?

El amor es un sentimiento confuso para muchos. No para mí. Una vez, hace mucho tiempo, una persona citó la Biblia en un pasaje que decía que las mujeres ancianas debían "enseñar" a las más jóvenes a amar a sus maridos.
Con esto, esta persona explicaba de esa manera una idea que me quedó para toda la vida: el amor se aprende.
El amor está fundado en la fuerza de voluntad. Uno no se levanta todos los días queriendo abrazar y besar a la persona que tiene al lado. A veces hay discusiones, aveces malos entendidos. A veces, hay sentimientos muy diferentes de la amabilidad y el romanticismo.
Pero eso no significa que no haya amor.
Si el amor solamente fuera predestinado, qué mal que estaríamos todos. Pero por otra parte, sería demasiado cómodo, pues nunca nos equivocaríamos al elegir, pues el que viniera, sería el que el destino preparó. Nunca habría errores ni aprendizajes. Nunca habría discordias terminadas en  bellas reconciliaciones. El amor sería mecánico y robotizado.
No, no. No creo que sea el destino, sino una serie de decisiones que tomamos en la vida basándonos en nuestros gustos, nuestros intereses, nuestras ganas y determinación de querer y respetar a una persona en las buenas y en las malas.
El amor, definitivamente, es una toma de desiciones. Está mientras lo mantengamos vivo. Se va cuando nosotros lo decidimos.
Te amo, con todo el ser de adentro, con toda mi extravagancia, con toda mi alma, con todos mis defectos y con todas mis sonrisas, con las cualidades que te atraparon de mí, y con todas las promesas fallidas que te hice. Te amo con el corazón.

Is love destined or is it a choice?
If love gave us choices, I would have ran four years ago.  I honestly think that true love isn't a choice that you can just make.  Though, I'm also a rarity in this world when it comes to faithfulness and my track record with men.  I married my first real boyfriend, who was also the first person I held hands with, kissed and anything beyond that.  I fell in love with him at first sight when I was younger and couldn't want anyone but him.  For some reason he was the most handsome person in the world to me.  He had a bad dating history, he wasn't blemish free and he's the type that cheats and says he's just being friendly... but for some reason I just couldn't want anyone else.  Call it obsession, but it isn't.  I love every little quirk about him, even the ones that hurt me.  Sure, I would love if he could change those things by himself, but I'm not going to make him if he doesn't think the pain is a big enough reason to.

Anyways, in short, you fall into love completely blind with no directions.  You don't get to pick why or how you love the person... you just do.

сколько себя помню, мне всегда кажется, что я смертельно болен. люди вокруг меня стареют и умирают, проходят века, а мне всё кажется, что я еще не начинал жить, что это еще какой-то пролог, что всё это не может быть по-настоящему. есть такая категория персонажей - они всегда считают, что "и не жили еще". даже если им скоро на пенсию, или уже, или как мне - 452 года. обычно это накладывается на мировосприятие в виде некой пелены, и такие люди одинаково слабо воспринимают как присутствие жизни, так и присутствие смерти. а люди, которые ярко проживают жизнь, наверное, постараются поскорее её спалить каким-то образом, чтобы был фейерверк. кто-то будет вампирить близких, цепляться за них, осознанно или неосознанно. а кто-то умрет еще задолго до физической смерти.

    but my point is... i dont care, because NEITHER matters... knowing if things are predetermined or knowing if i have freewill wont change anything... because if everything is predetermined then it wont matter one way or another... and if i have free will then i will continue on... so in the end, the answer never matters, it doesnt change anything
    and being forced to sit there and write papers on it or write essays or listen to lectures
    i found them absolutely useless.

    i agree completely which is why i said before, phil majors only like to argue pointless shit
    =p
    makes them feel good about themselves
    i r teh smart i argue

    and by the way, i was just pointing out how i do know how someone can "counter" the free will argument but like it's just circular logic... its like being stuck in one of those turn-doors, you know the one at big buildings
    debating free will vs. predetermination is like being stuck in one of those


Copy paste for the win. And yay I don't care if anyone finds out my AIM screen-name!

Вопрос дня: Remembering Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs once said, "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." He inspired a generation to Think Different. How has the legacy of Apple's co-founder influenced your life?
Хороший чел был, жаль что рано так покинул этот мир. Пусть земля ему пухом будет.

Вопрос дня: Болезнь

Как бы поменялась Ваша жизнь, если бы Вы узнали, что смертельно больны?
Да никак , все равно изменить ни чего нельзя , значит нужно любить людей и встречаться с ними , как можно чаще , ведь никто не знает , что ТАМ ? Баранкин, будь человеком!

I worked for a Friends school once. As you know, the Friends are Quakers. I wanted to work for them because of their social activism - their feelings of world peace. Peace is their identity!

Well, guess what...I was victimized by their anti-Semitism. I left in tears just a few months after I started there. How can I believe there could be world peace if I was bullied by Quakers?
Domestic? Never!

As a delegate of the Model United Nations, it is my duty to reply "yes, and the UN will be the soul cause of it." (Stay with me, I haven't fallen off the deep end just yet.)

As a 14 year-old girl raised in one of the most conservative areas in South Georgia, I can reply "No, never, not until one country has taken over the entire globe and I fairly certain no one wants that."

Hee, I'm done and I'll finish with something I'm sure you would like better f-list.

Do you think there will ever be world peace?
Short answer: no

Long answer: No, there won't ever be world peace. World peace isn't possible as long as people are too caught up on in their own personal melodramas.  People will probably always be too selfish to truly care about doing what is best for the world.

I wish that I could honestly say yes. But our race is so messed up, we're greedy, and wanting, and selfish, and if we cannot fix these things (which we can't, it's human nature to want things), then we will never live in a world with peace. I believe that there will forever be a war raging somewhere. Unfortunately.

I hope I am proven wrong.

I'm only concern about one world, really your only in control of your own world. but some people join worlds and cause ciaos and mayhem. But as for as i know each man is an individual in the sight of God. similar crime similar charges, charge them as one. we express whats inside, hence our environment. from the attitude, to the makeup on the face, to the environment. all the ciaos in the world is with man. remove man you have world peace. until such time, We are created in the image and likeness of God, hence we're miniature gods each one has the ambition to want to rule something. So Bams away!!!

The potential is there.  It is up to us whether or not we help it to manifest in the world.  Until we realize that bombs, guns, angry words, and hate-filled actions do nothing but detract from the goal, we will not find ourselves living in a peaceful world.  Peace must begin in each of our hearts, refusing to speak words that only incite more pain, anger, and hatred for our fellow beings.

There are more and more people transforming their minds and selves each day, and our generation has been filled with visionaries trying to get this message across to us, if only we would listen: Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama...and sure, John Lennon.  Our problem lies in the feeling of righteous indignation we have towards our own anger, feeling we are justified when someone has hurt us.  While it is a natural response, it helps nothing--but acting or speaking out of anger hurts everything, and only continues the cycle. 

So long as that cycle continues, then no...there will never be world peace.

Warfare is part of human nature, so no; it's the same reason there'll never NOT be some form of capitalism - too many people for too few resources, either in reality or in the perception of those willing to fight to gain said resources. Especially since we don't show any sign as a species of slowing our reproductive rate.
