And who among you considers this to be a good thing?

Funny thing: earlier today my wife and I were discussing the decaying state of things.
All over the 'first world', rail and road networks, bridges and ferries, are crumbling into rubble, for lack of maintenance. No profit in maintenance is there? Companies buy these vital assets, and run them into the ground while extracting as much profit as they can in the process. Then they do a runner and/or liquidate.
Gas lines, water mains, sewers, electrical grids, disappearing manhole covers and lead roofing, even bronze war memorials, stripped and stolen by the kind of people that steal such things. Along with vandalism for the sake of it.
Oh boy.

I may end up living in an igloo, part-time, and under a tree for the rest.
Fish oil for lamps, if there are any fish left.

A totally-controlled collapse is a very telling concept.
Reminds me of those skyscraper demolitions, using explosives.
Why just leisurely dismantle it when you can really make an impression!

Well, that's nice. It's not like I've gone away, though, or anything.
Ever see that movie "Flyboys"? That hero guy with the Nieuport 17, with "Je vois tout" on the side.
I feel like him, sometimes.
He died, though :(

I never had to warp my thinking so much for a person.

Haha :)
Sorry about that. It's not deliberate.

The spiritual stuff was your best contribution. :(
That was a revealing comment. I had to ponder it for a bit.
Seems to me, anything I write is spiritual, because given who I am, it can be nothing else.
The intellect likes to divide things up into categories, whereas spirit sees it all as one thing.
Remember that huuuuuuge government warehouse at the end of 'Raiders of The Lost Ark'? Full of crates and stuff?
That's the inside of peoples' heads.
Mine is more like an empty plain, with sky overhead. Mostly sunny, but sometimes a storm.
Little chance of buffer overflow.

As many have noted, my overwhelming interest in all things spiritual, has had some effect upon our forum.
Some like it, others don't, which is only to be expected.
And so, for those who don't: I plan to offer far less of such material. Be pleased :)
And for those who did like it:  feel free to PM me for an invite to a place where such conversations are the norm.

FFS, this is a deathmetal site, not a friggin' church.

I'd say arrogance can not exist without hubris, and hubris is the opposite of humility.
Although people that suffer from the condition of arrogance often mistake humility in others, for it.
Hubris, in itself, sets up one's own ego as the infinitely all-knowing God, able to judge (and condemn) anything it sees as being a possible threat, or competitor.

You describe a possible path towards humility, not humility itself.
Finding one's limits, not knowing them.
Paradoxically, knowing one's limits enables one to regularly transcend them.
Not knowing them leads regularly to failure.

The secret of life is humility.
Without it, life is an endless uphill struggle for survival.
And one that ultimately ends in a failure to survive.
Humility depends entirely upon reverence.
For the whole. For It.

It can do without you.
But you can not do without It.

Consider this until you understand.
It will serve you well, for as long as you serve It.

Interzone / Re: pettiness kills the soul
« on: April 28, 2014, 07:16:43 PM »
Pettiness can't kill a soul. A soul has to exist before it can be killed.
Pettiness is an indication of there being no soul to kill.
But pettiness sabotages the possibility of there ever being a soul.
You see it everywhere. Atheists really have no idea.
Not liking the idea of 'God', they cut themselves off, from what they might otherwise become, by simply remaining open to knowledge they do not yet possess.

Do you consider cities, of any type, a good thing? If so, why?

Interzone / Re: Humility

If it can do that, it is not humility.
Humility is knowing oneself within the context of where one finds oneself.

It can look like pride and ego to those who do not know it.
It can also look like self-deprecation and underachieving, to the egotistical and prideful.
But to anyone who knows what it is, it is exactly what it is: knowledge, power, strength, and certainty, in the face of everything being forever beyond one's own will.

Good post. Humility is something scarcely known to modern man.
The wilderness doesn't care who you are, or how you pose.
Unimpressed, it does all it can to kill you, and cares not for the outcome.
A child may become a man in such a place.
Or die trying.
