ADDENDUM ON GOVERNMENT/NATION:

Of course, human beings being unequally endowed in various capacities form a hierarchy with the most intelligent, most wealthy and most powerful sitting atop the social hierarchy. The vanguard thinkers first conceive the ideas needed to put an institution or a device in place and then after the basic hypothesis is worked out many specialists fine tune the blueprint and later using human labor the blueprint is given concrete shape. So, in many ways, the distribution of intelligence, wealth and power not being equal thus those humans who possess these critical capacities in greater degree than the others dominate the proceedings and if they lack sound ethics then it lays the ground for exploitation of the common masses who become mere playthings in the hands of the intelligent, rich and powerful individuals who constitute the movers and shakers of society.

Did you not understand my statement - both government and nation are mental constructs given concrete form?
So your mind is giving you concrete form? say that to the wall that you are about to ram into at 80mph.

You're very low down the intellectual scale, Mr high school drop out.

The intelligent principle in matter conceives a plan and then guides the material substance in the creation of a physical form...

Similarly, on a smaller scale of conscious operation, human intelligence first conceives a plan and then executes it using human effort.

The fact that your mind was lazy or tired or inattentive is the cause of you ramming your car into a concrete wall. LOL.

Had the driver been alert and intelligently followed all the traffic rules, the accident would not have occurred in the first place.

The intelligence of the car driver manoeuvres his vehicle safely through traffic and obstacles.

The car itself is made by human intelligence and human effort.

So, everything boils down to cognition, conceptualization and execution using human effort...

Who or what conceptualizes/gives meaning/defines the word "corporation"?

Who gives concrete shape to a corporation after it is defined in precise terms?

Consciousness that inheres in energy/matter works in synchronicity with the energy/matter in which it inheres.

Conceptualization and execution may occur simultaneously depending on the task at hand.

HUGH,

Why're you a homophobe?

Aren't you aware of the fact that a majority of the posters here are either gay or bisexual?

So, mind your words.

Is the execution of a blueprint that has been formulated by an intelligent process an epiphenomenon?

Nor me , which is in the meaning of us.

Government really is just a group of men and women providing a service by force.

1. I am aware that most of the regulars are suckers of male hens.

2. I am NOT a homophobe and I speak truthfully. A phobia is an irrational FEAR and I neither have an irrational nor rational fear of homosexuals. In addition I don't hate them. What is clear to me is that they are SICK.

If anyone FEARS something, can they help it? If not why the material problem?

Are there not many people in the world INCLUDING homosexuals that are fearful of something?

Are they EVIL or criminals because they FEAR something?

Are there not HOMOSEXUALS who FEAR the following and much more?

1.HEIGHTS
2.COCKROACHES
3.LIZARDS
4.DARKNESS
5.PAIN
6.CATS
7.FAILURE

In terms of HATE, who can stop anyone from HATING another person?
