It is good that you have found a way which works for you. I might disagree with your words on happiness, Great Distance, as I find happiness to be the most important goal of life. So work hard and make yourself proud, thats all that counts anyway!
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

Some people can't be happy without self respect, achievement and productive employment. :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well we should all learn to be happy with less.

Less is more!

And you're not a millionaire in waiting. Try to enjoy life instead.

As for ghosts, There is no way to disprove their existance, So they are not of science.

But you could prove it right? Let say you are a mad scientist and tell you lab assistant to contact you after you kill him. If the lab assistant then comes back as a ghost to the mad scientist. But is not proven correct yet. The lab assistant's ghost must then repeatedly return upon command.

Then the test must be repeatable by others so other scientists go and kill their lab assistants and then repeat the test. After enough experiments where the lab assistance ghosts return then one could say that ghosts are real.

However while this test has not been done and repeated, there have been people who have said they want to contact the living to prove ghosts and when they died never returned. While this doesn't prove ghosts it doesn't disprove them either.

Which is why I think ghosts are not of the dead in the sense that a person dies and becomes a ghost. However one could say we just don't have the right equipment to detect ghosts. So who knows what ghosts really are.

I love debate and I love science. that makes this a good week for me.



A fleet of gravity controling ham sandwiches patrol the galaxy in their atmosphere-tangling trees. This, too cannot ever be really disproven because they could just be hiding somewhere we can't find them. So naturaly we should consider this a viable possibility for the origion of the laws of physics.


No. it's pointless to consider if they exist until you make some kind of observation suggesting they do.

Hydro...

my entire rant was about how that kind of thinking is a fallacy. Not being disproved does not make it suddenly on the table for being considered. You have to have actual evidence.


SCIENCE is more like this:
First, one observes. then, they may form a hypothesis based on those observations. then they perform experiments relating to these hyphothesese, and draw conclusion based on their results. And then you repeat this process as many times as you can to improve your understanding.

You are skipping the first step. You have to start from the point of nothing.


Also, my philosphy: Whatever floats your boat. just dont sink anybody elses. And try not to be a dick about it.

Late to the party again. Sorry about that. I was busy arranging furniture in Sims 3. Again.

What is the meaning of life? A common, but strange question.
It's a lot like asking what the speed of velocity is, or the pitch of sound.

This stuff causes me to generate an "Error:Mismatch(1)" and make various other BEEP BOOP noises. Variables can be like that when improperly handled.
The most common result to "What is the meaning of life?" is "To find the meaning of (your) life".
When the question is more refined to it's truer form : "What will make me most deeply existentially satisifed?", the only answer is : "Only you can answer this through a lifetime of searching"

It's rare a person really means to ask what the purpose of life is. They often mean to ask about the best form of self-completion, connectivity and life-satisfaction. Which is just as well, because genuinely asking about the purpose of life is an equivalent to asking the purpose of dust, shadows or wind. Life is unique in that it is the only thing capable of defining purpose.

Beep boop.

Crazen, stop pretending like you know anything about science, it hurts to read.

Hydro, there are no such things as ghosts. Cut it out.

*Vibrates the thread at 18.9 HZ*

This sound is on the lower edge of human hearing, and is typically ignored entirely by the conscious mind.  Instead, it transmits directly to the hind brain, and triggers an emotional response of anxiety and sadness.  It also happens to be rather close to the resonant frequency of the human eye, causing the eye to shake and deform enough to cause false images in a person's field of view.

It is also a relatively common frequency, generated by everything from fans to the shapes of certain rooms.

*Leaves and allows you to draw your own conclusions*
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Quote from: Wikipedia
The possibility of a device that produces frequency that causes vibration of the eyeballs — and therefore distortion of vision — was apparently confirmed by the work of engineer Vic Tandy while attempting to demystify a “haunting” in his laboratory in Coventry. This “spook” was characterised by a feeling of unease and vague glimpses of a grey apparition. Some detective work implicated a newly installed extractor fan that, Tandy found, was generating infrasound of 18.9 Hz, 0.3 Hz, and 9 Hz.

You are skipping the first step. You have to start from the point of nothing.

Ok let to the scientific method step by step.

Question: Are Ghosts Real?
Research: People claim to see ghosts. People believe they are of dead people.
Hypothesis: If a person dies they become a Ghost.
Test Hypothesis: Kill your lab assistant. Did he become a ghost?
Analyze Evidence: If no ghost then no evidence. If a ghost appears then evidence.
Report Your Evidence: Say wither or not killing your lab assistant provided any evidence.

And based upon the evidence you get you can then ask more questions and do the steps all over again.
