What exactly is "lost"?

  1. Apr 26, 2004 #1
    Okay, guys, I have a question
    What exactly is *lost* ?
    I dont mean anything about losing a game, losing for something, I mean a status, yes, I am lost, you are lost, we are getting lost etc.
    :smile: A couple of days ago, I didnt know why I, on one hand held my cup of coffee without sugar, but I reached the other hand for salt...
    Is that *lost* ? I actually didnt pay attention to it at that time, I couldnt concentrate much...I thought again and again and said *Crazy !*, and then I felt hot, my face, my ears, and I sat still for a while, glued my eyes to my computer screen...Suddenly, I heard the sound of a drop of water onto my cup of coffee, which made me awake, and I then knew that it was my tear-drop...But only one, one drop only and perhaps its sound stopped everything....I myself call it a *lost*...

    How about you ?

    u just cant feel you self. u lose ur self. it's like half asleep it's come from negative pressure, confusion and tired from stress of course.

    That sounds more like a psychological question than a philosophical question to me. ;)

    Depends on what you have lost my friend. If it is yourself that is lost then i suggest you find yourself as soon as possible. Perhaps your habits are doing things you haven't got much passion for. You should start trying to do what you love instead of doin what works or satisfies your day. There's a huge difference between doing what you love and surviving the next day.
    I've felt that same lost awhile back, all i had to do was stop using the computer and start getting active. Now i only go on 1-2hrs a day and get restless when i don't do something i love.

    Thanks everyone, :)

    I think I cant stop using computer, though I am not a CS student, I love computer, I think I can handle this *lost*, I will try to concentrate on, as THANOS suggested, what I really love, Thats computer programming and... biology !

    Yes, I couldnt sleep those days, because of *lost*.
    4~5 hour sleep /day is enough for me. Coffee sometimes keeps my eyes open wide night and day...

    I think I lost so much, so many things, my time, my lessons, my concentration on teaching my little student...I will take them all back, and as I promised, I will always pray for you...for next time, for ever...
