Right, so from that perspective, isn't it
easier to change the filters than to try
and change something we can't actually
touch?

Always seemed that way to me. Then again,
I suppose it's like the "love the one your with"
idea. If I liked fat males, I'd be set for life.

Absolutly. The first big hurdle is recognizing that the world we live in is up here (in our minds) and not out there. The creator god exists inside of us creating the world we live in moment to moment. We are the creator god. “If you want to change the world…”

Stow that Kant bullshit right now.

The world is what the world is. You can set your "mind filters" to believe that garbage is food, if you want. Go ahead, start chowing down on rotten banana peels and syringes. It's food according to your mind, so it's food, right? Yeah, you're only thirsty because your mind filters are set up to make your throat feel that way. You don't ever need to waste another second drinking because the thirst is all in your head, right?

Hey, dipshit. Guess what happens when you eat nothing but garbage and never drink any water? You f*****g die! That's because garbage is garbage and water is water and your body is your body and they do what they are designed to do regardless of what you say and think about them!

If George Bush is a criminal and you just decide to say he isn't to spare yourself the TORMENT OF THINKING, guess what? HE'S STILL A CRIMINAL! THOSE PEOPLE ARE STILL DEAD! THEIR BODIES ARE UNDERGROUND AND IMMOBILE! DOES YOUR f*****g RETARDED SUBJECTIVIST MIND COMPREHEND THAT OR ARE YOU TOO BUSY WONDERING WHY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF DYING WHEN THE WORLD IS OBVIOUSLY AN ILLUSION LIKE IN "THE MATRIX?" HOLY s**t YOU'RE f*****g DAFT!

I dare you to go stand in traffic, you c**t. See what happens when that Ford hits you at 55 mph. Nothing, right? It's all in your head, you created the Ford and you can make it go away, right? The laws of physics are controlled by you, right?

NO! NO YOU MORONIC DICKHEAD! YOU GET HIT BY THE TRUCK AND YOU DIE! REALITY EXISTS AND IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE IT THEN IT WILL PUNISH YOU FOR YOUR STUPIDITY! JESUS CHRIST I CANNOT POSSIBLY IMAGINE HOW ANYONE COULD BE THAT f*****g DUMB AS TO BELIEVE THAT THEY CONTROL REALITY! I HATE YOU AND YOUR APATHETIC NIHILISTIC SELF-DESTRUCTIVE NON-MIND! YOU. ARE. MY. f*****g. ENEMY.

Didn't do it with a Ford, but rather a train.

The train broke.

THIS ISN'T A LAUGHING MATTER. I AM SO SICK OF THESE NIHILIST KANT-KUNTS THAT IT MAKES ME WANT TO COMMIT 5TH DEGREE MURDER.

5th degree sounds pretty mild.

Is that murder by wishful thinking?

You need a mellow pill, dude.

Or to turn cap locks off.

Striving for perfection can lead you to an early grave.

Perfection is immortality.

So those who strive for perfection are going about it the WRONG way. :P

Heh, if its not sincerely caring about someone and feeling that invested or like they make so much of a qualitative difference (or they're that rare in a good way) that they're indispensable or irreplaceable - I guess I'm just getting old.

I'd say the opposite.

I don't personally believe there is a verbal explanation for the ol' four-letter word. I mean of course there's this:

Quote:
love /lʌv/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[luhv] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation noun, verb, loved, lov·ing.
–noun
1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
3. sexual passion or desire.
4. a person toward whom love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart.
5. (used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection, or the like): Would you like to see a movie, love?
6. a love affair; an intensely amorous incident; amour.
7. sexual intercourse; copulation.
8. (initial capital letter) a personification of sexual affection, as Eros or Cupid.
9. affectionate concern for the well-being of others: the love of one's neighbor.
10. strong predilection, enthusiasm, or liking for anything: her love of books.
11. the object or thing so liked: The theater was her great love.
12. the benevolent affection of God for His creatures, or the reverent affection due from them to God.
13. Chiefly Tennis. a score of zero; nothing.
14. a word formerly used in communications to represent the letter L.
–verb (used with object)
15. to have love or affection for: All her pupils love her.
16. to have a profoundly tender, passionate affection for (another person).
17. to have a strong liking for; take great pleasure in: to love music.
18. to need or require; benefit greatly from: Plants love sunlight.
19. to embrace and kiss (someone), as a lover.
20. to have sexual intercourse with.
–verb (used without object)
21. to have love or affection for another person; be in love.
—Verb phrase
22. love up, to hug and cuddle: She loves him up every chance she gets.
—Idioms
23. for love,
a. out of affection or liking; for pleasure.
b. without compensation; gratuitously: He took care of the poor for love.
24. for the love of, in consideration of; for the sake of: For the love of mercy, stop that noise.
25. in love, infused with or feeling deep affection or passion: a youth always in love.
26. in love with, feeling deep affection or passion for (a person, idea, occupation, etc.); enamored of: in love with the girl next door; in love with one's work.
27. make love,
a. to embrace and kiss as lovers.
b. to engage in sexual activity.
28. no love lost, dislike; animosity: There was no love lost between the two brothers.


However, I think love is the one emotion that is pure emotion. No words. No expressions. Just feeling. And you know when you feel it. It hits you like a brick wall on a cold day.

Exactly my point. It doesn't exist. It's impossible.

Going back to the definition,
as I've said elsewhere,
'tis me.
