I believe in a spiritual reality and so if it gets that bad I'm fine starving while being honorable

2018-11-11 05:46:03 UTC  

This world is a middle ground or testing ground. A place to grow and gain, or to fail and lose at a spiritual level.

2018-11-11 05:46:34 UTC  

We get purpose here, identity, wishes and regrets.

Surviving as a monster is failure.

I used to be an atheist til only 2 years ago. I realized Socrates and Descartes' logic is more sound than anything.

2018-11-11 05:48:06 UTC  

I opposed belief through faith of books. I approve of faith through logic.

If there was once only nothingness, then there would still be only nothingness. Since we have things, things always have been. Matter, spirit, soul, and the inevitable godhood.

2018-11-11 05:50:34 UTC  

That's how we end up with free will in a world of chaos and impermanence. But this is merely a plane. The original world of thought and spirit is more true.

2018-11-11 05:50:58 UTC  

This is thus comparatively a nightmare, but there is a darker nightmare we would call hell.

In my Signature in some Forum I put:

@Dvir polism?

2018-11-11 13:18:46 UTC (or with better view) ... livestream from Polish patriots march celebrating independence... you might hear about it in "news" under headline 'fascism reborns in Poland' or similar 😉 even if I'm not actively participating in it, for me its good test for government (if it is democratic or totalitarian, there were provocations in the past, attempts to block it) and media (if they're manipulative or accurate/reliable); it's supposed to start in about 40 minutes.

I've got a soldier to share today

```Staff Sergeant William H. Savier of the 53rd Armored Infantry Battalion, U.S. Army.

Enlisted on 03/17/43 and served until 10/26/45 and despite years of insisting he spent his military career on K.P. Duty, he also participated in battle campaigns in Northern France, Rhineland and Ardennes.

A POW he was awarded, amongst other commendations, multiple Purple Hearts, the Distinguished Unit Citation, the Good Conduct Medal, the European African Middle Eastern Service Ribbon, the Combat Infantry Badge and the Bronze Star. ```

We've kept those medals, and his ceremonial sword is something I keep close track of and sometime soon I'll try and get professionally cleaned up, it's a little worn

You know I was looking at a baby and for a long time I used to think that babies have near infinite potential but now I dont think that people are just products of their iq and environment.

2018-11-11 16:29:31 UTC  

If someone is born poor and high iq they can move up

2018-11-11 16:30:27 UTC  

If they are born rich and low iq they will most likely drop in social stature

2018-11-11 16:30:40 UTC  

If poor and stupid they will do nothing

2018-11-11 16:31:00 UTC  

If rich and intelligent they can rule the world

2018-11-11 16:31:41 UTC  

Is that a bad thing though?

2018-11-11 16:32:13 UTC  

Is it wrong that the choices if your ancestors come to fruition in you

2018-11-11 16:33:47 UTC  

America is one of if the only countries in the world that a poor person with a good idea can be more

2018-11-11 16:47:46 UTC  

Only if that poor person as a child gets adequate nutrition and basic schooling

2018-11-11 16:48:21 UTC  

Poor nutrition starves the brain. Kills potential before it can blossom..

2018-11-11 16:52:01 UTC  

I dont know if thats how potential works

2018-11-11 16:52:30 UTC  

From what ive heard you cant go up

2018-11-11 16:53:13 UTC  

Except through learning a new language and playing an instrument

2018-11-11 17:10:55 UTC  

The brain is part of the body. If children don't have proper nutrition, thier brains will be stunted. It's really sad. That's why we have SNAP and school lunches.

2018-11-11 17:12:59 UTC  

We stopped physical evolution

2018-11-11 17:13:15 UTC  

Do we want to stop mental evolution by keeping stupid people alive

2018-11-11 17:13:29 UTC  

Do we really want to handicap our species like that?

2018-11-11 17:15:16 UTC  

But you could have a genius who never manifests because you don't feed him well as a child

2018-11-11 17:15:56 UTC  

Or if he gets sick and dies before he can do wonders

2018-11-11 17:16:21 UTC  

My point is we need to invest in all kids so that they can match thier potential

2018-11-11 17:16:47 UTC  

If we don't, other countries will and we will be poorer for it

2018-11-11 17:17:17 UTC  

I will invest in my kids others can do the same if they want

2018-11-11 17:17:30 UTC  

I wont invest in something that isnt mine

2018-11-11 17:18:19 UTC  

And thus we become poorer as a nation and the pie gets smaller. :-(
