Dr. Aquino released this to the public several years ago, it's a good read:

I dunno . . . if something cannot be defined, then what is it really? It's nothing.

I bring up the problem of ill-defined terms quite often these days. Remember "context clues"? I think every idea or belief requires something more than just a simple term. If one doesn't frame a picture correctly, people might study the frame instead of the artwork (for better or worse). :)

I think mental health is essential to the Western Left-Hand Path. What do you think?

Setianism / Re: Idealist View of Consciousness After Death - Kastrup

Dr. Aquino discusses immortality in MindStar (starting p.141).

Edit: why do so many religions focus so much on life after death? Is this a consequence of survival instincts, or something more?

@Onyx Nice one! Would it be out of line to request your preferred technique for geometrically constructing this one?

I got a rather delightful meditation out of trying to reverse engineer possible construction techniques.

@idgo, it's easy for me to get sidetracked, but I'll address this now. I use Inkscape and the GIMP for most of my work. I've also written some of my own graphics programs, and use a few oldie-but-goodie 3D programs on occasion.

I drew this one in Inkscape, and converted the exported PNG file into a JPEG. Some inspirational words from one of my graphic design teachers: "You can do good design with anything".

The tools that require more of a learning curve tend to be more powerful, but these days there are plenty of ways to accomplish creative goals, particulary given the networking available through the Internet. There are many online tools available for various things. I've done plenty of pro-bono design/retouching/colorizing work, not to earn "good-guy badges" but a good knife requires re-sharpening: Remanifestation is always in full effect for me.

Finally, a lack of interest in socialization does not have to be life-crippling and in fact, for many, is not in the least.

I can't remember the source, but a few years ago there was a whole article about how some people are happier concentrating on their personal pursuits, while others are happier interacting with others.

Anyone ever take a real I.Q. test? I have twice. My overall scores were rather high, but if one looks at it like a graphic equalizer with it's "ups and downs", I had plenty of downs, particularly when it came to social reasoning.

Life is not a one size fits all proposition.

No it is not, humans (and even other animals) can be very different. If we have anything in common it is survival through eating and getting enough sleep so we can carry on another day.

I've never been much of a women-chaser, because that tends to be a burden. When it comes to an android, I don't want to pay thousands of dollars for one, and I wonder what the maintenance costs would be? :mrgreen:

I'm not much into the whole idea, but it seems that some younger people might be more agreeable given the realism of modern video games and the sophisticated technology involved when it comes to androids.

Do I really want to fuck the Tomb Raider? Probably not, but as the old saying goes: "don't knock it until you've tried it". ;)

My abilities are rudimentary. This was made with Microsoft Paint. I just played until I felt I should stop.

I'm curious as to the meaning, but won't get nosy. I often collaborate with others on graphics, hit me up in Conversations if you want.

Very intresting submissions! I would love to do something like this again as a community,  it's important to see visually the differences in how everyone thinks...

I thought it was a great idea. The terms "left-brained" and "right brained" are thrown around quite a bit, but it's a "no-brainer" to me that there is plenty of overlap there.

Symbolism goes beyond the written word. Arts, crafts, music, and many other pursuits work toward the refinement and understanding of one's Truth of Being. Or simply favoring certain aesthetics per one's own discretion.

That thread remains open, and can certainly continue on. One of the takeaways for me was that @Olive 's experiment reinforces some of the aforementioned things.

I don't remember seeing that, but it's water under the bridge now.

Would someone please explain to me (hopefully in simple terms) what the fuck is going on?

Edit: I don't see that any rules were broken.

Bump.

Not too much of an issue, but as I said, I don't think they would get legal problems from printing on the membership card whatever name you want to have written on there, which would be much more fitting for an organization focused on individualism.

Come to think of it I don't see why it would really matter one way or the other, as newer cards have serial numbers on them.

With a much less official institution like the CoS they wouldn't have any legal issues either way I suppose, so them insisting on it being the same name as your legal name...

Maybe I'm missing something, but I still don't quite see where they are actually insisting on anything?

If one of our members wishes a membership card reflecting a name change due to a gender identity different from when they originally joined, please supply proof of your updated legal ID for our records. We will then supply an updated membership card.

Quote from: Liu
Well insisting on a legal name change might be a bit pedantic...

Isn't this just an offer to get a new card if you happened to change your name, and keep the files up-to-date? I mean, even if I changed my name without gender being involved wouldn't they do the same thing?
