Billie,
You asked how to deal with FO.
I spelled it out perfectly,
but you fucked it up and got personal.
And you forgot to admit your a fucwad, ha..ha..

Not sticking up for Fo, he's a big boy.

Yea -- Your right ; It's Hopeless !!

I'll forget about the $35 i offered --fo-- for gas, he can spend his
own money to go boarding. I'll just fill my tank & head to Southern Callie
next week. I'll jump off a 3500ft Mt on my Hang glider with that money instead.

I'll take pictures of me looking down on that world that Fokiten lives in,
from like 10K ASL. He'll be the Last fricken thing on earth, i'll be thinking
about while i'm up there !!

Reminds me of a quote from my all-time favorite author:

I dig on strict physics but regarding top down causation and of the 5 classes of top down causation I focus more on intelligent top down causation. The effect of the human mind on the physical world.

And your name is perfectly suited for an Internet discussion board. I caught the irony.

I started this thread because of all the shit that was going on in another thread. I don't want to call people out directly because I don't really think they would learn from that, but I think a general tone and how to deal with issues is important, and if most of the other forum users adhere to that I think overall the threads will go further.

I love your username tho...are you into Social theories of network society, ant, information society?
The top down causation framework reminds me a lot about Giddens, Latour etc. or are you are strict physics guy?

Hi Billy

Have to agree with Marty on this one, except for calling you a Fukwad. :oops:

You can not have a go at Fo on a thread that is about tollarance and not expect him to defend himself.

If you rattle the cage expect a reaction.

Anyway I've always liked your post's and admired how you have over come obsticals in your life.

Well the weekend is here now and its windy - see you on the other side

Paul

I don't know too much about it, but it seems interesting :thumb:

Right now I work with futures research. A very grey area in terms of empiricism...at least if you are a pure logical positivist at heart, but making a case for dealing with everyday complexities and low level of information is for many hard to accept. At least if they are looking for traditional validity.

So when you talk about effect on physical world, are we talking a form of meta affect akin to cognitive philosophy the concept of qualia..only in a physics sense?

Any seminal papers on it?

Big Paul: He did not call Billie a fukwad. That part was a joke..but it kind of illustrates the barrier we have to pass by to communicate I think that was an old reference..

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

No he's right, i resemble that remark !! :lol:

This might work though :

After sleeping on it ---
No doubt i Can kite-board Agro.
Can snow ski Agro as well ; but can "NOT" fly a hang glider in that
frame of mind.

I can clear my mind Easy, just prior to a flight ; sometimes
even ditch the instruments just to make the flight Harder, cause it takes
more concentration to stay up. I can Not fight the air when i fly ; it's be one
with it, or go to the ground, ( like a kids time-out) , there's no other option.
Ditching the instruments makes me more connected to nature.

SO
I just need to tell myself to go Fly off a mountain , Before i make a post
on the forum ; it may work for me as a way to stay calm. They got a word
for use of that kind of devise ?
