"Consciousness is a fundamental thing, the fundamental thing in existence É it is the energy, the motion, the movement of consciousness that creates the universe and all that is in it É not only the macrocosm but the microcosm is nothing but consciousness arranging itself. For instance, when consciousness in its movement or rather a certain stress of movement forgets itself in the action it becomes an apparently Ćunconsciousö energy; when it forgets itself in the form it becomes the electron, the atom, the material object. In reality it is still consciousness that works in the energy and determines the form and the evolution of form. When it wants to liberate itself, slowly, evolutionarily, out of Matter, but still in the form, it emerges as life, as animal, as man and it can go on evolving itself still farther out of its involution and become something more than mere man."

-- Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine, pp. 236-7.

"Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also a dynamic and creative energy. It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti, awareness but also conscious force."

-- Sri Aurobindo, Letters on Yoga, p. 234

If you want you can try to define my position by reading what I wrote at half of this post.
If I understand what you wrote (and I wouldn't bet the rent on it), I "believe" we're more or less on the same page.

Special plans for Easter Sunday?

I haven't seen any evidence that some words written over 200 years ago are applicable to me, you are the one making the claim of separation, you make the claim its your burden of proof. What facts do you rely on that the constitution is applicable to me personally?

Not so much a troll as a delusional, misguided individual who subscribes to pseudo-science as well as any and all conspiracy theories. In other words, a Ron/Rand Paul supporter.

Either way, not worth the time.

Nuke the whales!

BTW, who knew?

The blue whale has the largest penis of any living animal.[1] It is commonly cited as having an average penis length of 8 feet (2.4 m) to 10 feet (3.0 m) and a girth of 12 inches (300 mm) to 14 inches (360 mm).

What has this diatribe against Israel got to do with my comment directed at the pseudo-intellectual, COR?

Israel is an evil nation but so are many other nations.

Don't you think the US is far more evil than puny Israel?

Aren't Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the imperialists of old, the UK, evil nations?

Israel at least allows its people to do as they wish and holds nothing against abnormal human beings like homosexuals, whores or transsexuals nor does it persecute Jewish/non-Jewish critics of Judaism or of the state of Israel. In fact, a kind of laissez-faire atmosphere prevails
in the whole in Israel and most Israelis (ex-Jews/Jews) are, like a majority of people in the world, out to have fun and be successful in life.

Maybe we are on the same page about it.

I programmed to go in vacation abroad, but other events plus a wedding to attend on Easter Sunday force me to stay here.

What's your plan for Easter Sunday?

Hopefully, in most nations, the population of abnormal human beings like homosexuals, prostitutes and transexuals should be well under 10% of the total population.

Either that or I lost tolerance.

Many people (like me) would consider you abnormal due to your strange ways.

You have strange values and look down on others who have less education and/or less money. This is not good behavior and not normal in polite society.

It is probably good for society that your will not reproduce.

Though I have enjoyed chatting with you on occasion.

I do not think your values and ways are the ideal for human behavior.

All due respect of course.
