Why should you be disappointed that vinegar tastes like vinegar?  Is it not the best vinegar you have tasted?  Embrace that.

I'm beginning to think you are far more of a Taoist than anyone I know.

What if I did not know it was vinegar?

Why not?

Why what is not and what is?

Why not what not is?

Why is what not not?

Why not live in a world of fantasy?

The purpose of the thread? I find it existentially stimulating. Very creative at getting the old cogs turning to try and make sense of what is, and what is not.

Why not? Is there a particular reason that we should or shouldn't? Why not join the peace rally? Does it help you, your neighbors, the world? Or is it a useless effort on the part of humanity?

Why what is not and what is? In the end, why does peace not exist in the first place? Is it humanity as a whole, is it the individual? Do we exist in a hive-mind mentality? What does exists is an almost ceaseless drive to be the director of the hive-mind. I am right, you are wrong. There can be no peace.

Why not what not is? The sad thing is, within each of us is a desire for peace, but a conflict with self. Boiled down to Karma, Fate, What goes around comes around, No good deed goes unpunished. We are left in a conflicting world where good is bad and bad is good. The reward for each is the same.

Why is what not not? Simple, there is no reward for peace other than what lies within your own mind. One man can be at peace with a torn paperback book in an alley sitting next to a dumpster. Another can only find peace with a collectors edition of Jane Eyre read in a plush room lined with burnished walnut walls.

Why not live in a world of fantasy? The world of fantasy is easier. The dream of peace is nothing more than that. "I have a Dream."

Thank you EMO for the thread. I hope it can prove more than mild amusement. I loved trying my best to answer the questions. :D

Sounds like fun.  But sadly you've kinda set the bar a little high there, Oreo.

Why not? What's stopping you?  I don't mean this rhetorically, I mean it as a genuine question.  Why is it you can't do the things you want?  Do you lack the skills?  The time?  The money? 

Why what is not and what is? Why are those things stopping you?  Is this a genuine roadblock in your way or a roadblock you've created in your mind?  Is the lack of money, say, really stopping you from doing it or can you find another, cheaper, way of doing it?

Why not what not is? So the lack of money is real and not imaginary.  Fine, it happens.  All you need to do is tag a thing onto the beginning of your to do list. "Get Money" becomes item one.  And then back to the top.  Why don't you have money?  What's stopping you?

Why is what not not? But while you're getting money or learning skills or making time, you're not doing something else.  Be aware of that.  Embrace it.  Scream from the top of a rooftop that you know full well that while you're working on this project you're not working on that one but thats fine because, goddamnit, this is important to me.  Be aware of the costs and consciously accept them.

Why not live in a world of fantasy? Because its too fragile.  Imagine your perfect fantasy world, sure.  But then go out and make a solid plan for making that ideal world the real world.

The philosophical aspects really appeal to me.  What I have tried to apply has worked for me.  The mysticism?  Not so much.

Quote from: Lux12

Does your knowing or not know change the vinegar's properties?

Why not?
Why is bad not good?

Why what is not and what is?
What makes a thing bad or good?  When something is declared bad, we recognize good.  They are opposites.  So if bad becomes good, good must become bad.

Why not what not is?
So who or what determines which side a thing falls on?  Obviously many people have different ideas of where things fall.  Is good and bad simply a matter of perception then?  Is there an absolute?  Was it created by god(s) and knowledge of it implanted within us?  Or do we determine based on survival instincts?

Why is what not not?
But good is bad and bad good.  One can not exist without the other.  Good can not exist without bad, therefore, by being bad it allows for the possibility of good.  How can that be bad?

Why not live in a world of fantasy?
Do we delude ourselves by separating things into good and bad?  Are these labels meaningless in the end?

Bravo! Your twisted minds have twisted reality to make this thread allot more interesting.

Why not?
Why not chase the mail man?

Why what is not and what is?
Why is it considered insane to act as an animal, yet perfectly normal but merely unacceptable to kill?

Why not what not is?
Why do we not become more accepting of each other's flaws instead of trying to "Fix" them?

Why is what not not?
Why can't we accept change, why are we stuck rejecting the value of what persons want for the simple want of people?

Why not live in a world of fantasy?
What is the harm in having a dream? Because a man once told us "To think of doing something bad is to have already done it."?
