as for being damned if you don't believe...superstitious poppycock.
you're right about the password analogy, it does sound like i'm trying to get behind a firewall, and need big daddy's permission.
i meant it in a slightly different way.
watching a child teach itself to drag its body to the vertical position and learn to hold their balance is amazing.
the patience and willpower are awesome, and eventually, gradually, balance becomes second nature -until you get old and wobbly again.
forgetting yer password!
damn i used the analogy again...
i hope i didn't sound polemic, i intuit our pov's are neither exclusive, nor do they cancel each other out.
seemingly antagonistic perhaps, they are in reality complementary.
i heard when humans die, they suddenly become a few grams lighter.
not that i need physical proof, mind...
i love subjects like this.
mind over natter....
i suspect the soul will ever resist definition, will never cease to change, and will delight eternally in hiding in plain sight.
attempting to describe the ineffable is the source of all poetry.
if i was in control, i would not have to wait for anything, ever!
