Does this make sense, philosophically speaking?


Go placidly amid the noise and waste and remember what comfort there might be in owning a piece thereof. Avoid quiet and passive persons, unless you are in need of sleep. Rotate your tires. Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself and heed well their advice, even though they be idiots. Know what to kiss, and when. Consider that two wrongs never make a right, but that three may. Wherever possible, put people on hold.

Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment, and despite the changing fortunes of time, there is always a big future in computer maintenance. Remember the Brits. are to blame. Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate. Know yourself. If you need help, call MI5. Exercise caution in your daily affairs, especially with those closest to you. That moron on your left, for instance. Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls would scarcely get your feet wet. Fall not in love; it will stick to your face. Gracefully surrender the things of youth, birds, clean air, tuna, Rockall; and let not the sands of time get in your lunch.

Take heart amid the deepening gloom that your dog is finally getting enough cheese; and reflect that whatever misfortune might be your lot, it could only be worse in Dublin 13. You are a fluke of the Universe. You have no right to be here, and whether you can hear it or not, the Universe is laughing behind your back.

Therefore, make peace with your god, whether you conceive him to be a wild thunderer or a cosmic muffin. With all its hopes, dreams, promises, subsidies and urban renewal, the world continues to deteriorate. If you are paranoid, you’ve got it right! Consider giving up!

    Good question.

    Just one question before I can answer.

    When the sun shines, the stars silently smile without anyone knowing and the daily routines get attended to as well as other day activities, particularly those which are far from being in the nature of naturally regular or recurring, get addressed and duly planned for in addition to the other ones that really do not demand or require any premeditation of any kind whatsoever and then all these activities having begun and then by the time it is time for the sun to look the other side and the stars to come out openly to see us reflecting on what was done or what was not done or what could not be done even though well sincerely attempted as well as intended for and then it is that ultimately we realise as to what exactly we are capable of or the other way around as to what exactly we are ashamed to be incapable of and it is then that we finally realise what our real proper worth is and keep the nicknames as nothing or small or minuscule or bit or little to indicate even though only symbolically and not all that humbly or openly or freely really to the rest of the world and to the sun if it would care to know and to the stars as well if they at all care too as to how great our vast universe is as well as how diverse it is at once but then who cares if at all, for no one has any time apart from all that they consider necessary to attend to and attempt to and intend to regarding themselves and their affairs so to say?

    as much as any scientific concept makes "experience" sure. as long because it makes quantitative predictions, those predictions are examined, and the area of validity is ordinary and sophisticated, then all is solid with the international. technology is the place Philosophy meets the line. Does "the line" make experience, or is "experience" some naive value judgment? You "dis" Einstein for no longer making a huge contribution to nuclear examine. Did Newton make a huge contribution to the know-how of gravity? sure. Did he make the final contribution to gravity? No. basically because of the fact he did no longer get into configuring / determining severe mass and such, understanding that there replaced into power to faucet, and how it have been given there, is a sizable contribution. and you're lacking some extra data. First Einstein promoted using nuclear skill, to provide up Hitler. Then while he observed the devastation, he lobbied confusing against its use.

    This is a badly rephrased ripoff of an old sketch from the "National Lampoon Radio Hour" of the 1970s. Shame, shame.

    No it doesn't make sense, I'm sorry but wtf does "you dog is finally getting enough cheese" mean. Also you have failed to justify you statements so it might be true but how do I know it is rather than something you just made up of the top you head.

    its dark, and sardonic, but quite funny. Does it make sense? I guess sense is in the eye of the philospher.
