    What's the point of life

    Another guy that wants to shout out his oppinion without reading all that's before him. For me it is different in that I find much meaning, but I also feel small. I'm supporised when someone says they can't find meaning in anything for to me there is so much. Maybe if you can't find a meaning...

    PETA puts to sleep 97% of adopted pets

    "and that PETA contracts with a Virginia cremation service to dispose of the bodies." What does this mean? It doesn't mean that they have been put the responsibility by the state to take their lives if they can't find a shelter for them? Or did 'noone' know they were 'disposing' of that many?

    Hm. That's bad :/ I'm starting of myself in a computer degree. but I'm taking it at one school.. maybe that's a good idea then. I've taken a math course this spring, I was a bit late but he seemed eager enough that I'm just willing to give them money :)

    Smart or attractive?

    I'd like to put the question more like you meet it in everyday: Would you like your mate to be quite intelligent but rather homely? Or, quite beautiful but rather dumb? I would choose the upperone. Most of all of course I would like her to be nice.

    What is Mathematics?

    I maybe find it weird to talk about mathematics. To me it's as if mathematics is there to tell us what is alike, and language that we and things are different and that we should enjoy it. It's as if when you do mathematics it takes control of language, and when you do language it takes control...

    What is Mathematics?

    Mathematicians are not explorers, but inventors. - Wittgenstein. That's a bit funky line, but I don't see how he could get to that conclusion.

    Does Plato mention Aristotle in any of his writings?

    In his work Parmenides a man named Aristoteles is there, but if I remember correctly one doesn't know if this is meant to be the real one. Cause Socrates is here also very young.

    Love's highest state: Altruistic

    Studying computers.

    Well I could change the 'just' with 'rather'. And liking stories alot is an exaggeration. I don't know. Religion and science is not the same, but religion can put strict practical directions on my actions, which could tamper on my plans on minor science education. I'm more thinking that...

    Studying computers.

    oh Nono I'm sorry, not being sarcastic, I'm never sarcastic :), just joking. I have some fundamental opinions about it that are negative(possibly more on personal basis) like that if we are happy enough we don't need to be more comfortable but love to work and have fun together on a close...

    Yes, I think you make a very important point. I also think that you maybe learn most from playing characters like that, and trying out things. The existiential part. It goes with that we always has to push that button don't we, even if we really know we shouldn't. I like to think of it as...

I'll also ask it through 'I' form, through me, so to to deliberately make it more alive. It has a general philosophical side...
