A question concerning your cat. posted 13 Mar 2006, 08:03 in Author Q & AA question concerning your cat. by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Hi, Mr. Bakker (sorry, I know you liked to be called scott, but being the first time I'm addressing you and all...yeah). This is kinda absurd, this being my first thread, but I was wondering about your cat, Scully...I'm assuming it's a "she" and that you named her after special agent Dana Scully...?? Not to pry, but are you, by chance, an X-Files fan? The truth is out there. view post

Oh, i forgot, if this makes me seem any less appreciative of the fact that you actually take the time to reply to these threads, I apologize. It's just, my first impression of you was greatly influenced by the fact that you mentioned your cat in your Author's Bio....also I wanted to tell you how much I love your books and that you're a great inspiration for hopeful future authors such as myself, so thanks. view post


posted 13 Mar 2006, 10:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtA poll on souls by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

I went with option 1...I think it's entirely possible that this particular skin-spy might actually be the soul of an Inchoroi bound to the body of a skin spy, I mean if the Inchoroi can bind themselves to a synthese frame, why not skin spies? Not to mention the fact that the skin spy was posing as Simas, a member of the Mandati Qurom...and since the Mandate is the only faction that had ever worried about the Consult's existance, maybe, for whatever reason, the Consult decided that the insight of an "old father" was required. Then again, I'm not entirely sure that Inchoroi have the ability to perform sorcery or have real souls themselves, in the sense of a being leaking through from the Outside...I'll have to check the book though. view post


posted 13 Mar 2006, 13:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtSkin-Spies have Souls by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

I posted this opinion in the "soul poll" as well: I think that this particular skin spy had just been a shell for the soul of an Inchoroi. My reason for this theory is that both the synthese and the skin spies are reffered to as "artifacts" of the Inchoroi. If the soul of an Inchoroi can be bound to a synthese body, why not a skin spy body as well? The consult needed someone with a soul to perform sorcery and also, one can't help but imagine that the experience of an Inchoroi over that of a soulless skin spy could only help while in the presence of the Mandate. What confuses me is when Nautzera realizes that he had always known, or always suspected or somthing along those lines....did anyone catch that? view post

Damn, I thougt I had somthin [quote="Warrior-Poet":3q3m0jel]I think they construct them.[/quote:3q3m0jel] I wonder if their abilities in the tenke go so far...?? I mean, to construct somthing of the flesh is one thing, but to [i:3q3m0jel]construct[/i:3q3m0jel] a soul. And even if that were possible, the Consult has forgotten a large part of the Tenke...again, the question of what a soul exactly is comes up. Maybe I'm making it somthing more than it is....hmmm, should i post this question in the TTT section or in the philosophy corner? view post


Exhaustive Concordance for the PoN series posted 14 Mar 2006, 05:03 in Off-Topic DiscussionExhaustive Concordance for the PoN series by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

I was thinking, awhile back, that an "exhaustive concordance" for the PoN might be of use to the forum. It would just be a list of any place, physical feature, war, battle, major and minor factions, and a few of the minor characters metnioned in all of the PoN books and all the places, including page numbers, paragraphs, and sentences, that they're mentioned. I just thought it might come in handy for when topics about the books come up that you don't remember specifically reading, or if you want to bring up a topic but you don't remember where it was mentioned, or whatever. Yeah, it might take a while to make one, but I'd be willing to work on it now and then....since I'm currently unemployed and have nothing better to do.... :D. So, what do you think? I'm open to any suggestions, also, of anything else I could put on it. view post

posted 14 Mar 2006, 07:03 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

I have to say that it's easy, in this day and age, to incriminate mainstream Chritianity and its claim as the one true religion, simply because of the direction that modern society has taken. I think it has to do with the fact that much of the progression that society has made has stemmed from a deviance from mainstream institutions, such as monarchies. Also, I know a lot of people who have expierienced how imperfect and mortal Christians can be while they claim that the rest of the world is going to hell because of their imperfections. Christians have become easy targets, and mostly because of their own damned frailty and greed, and so we label them as hypocrites with "holier than thou" attitudes. I can't deny that this is mostly true, but amoung these hypocrites, I stand. And I won't pretend that the Christian church is infallible, or say that I'm any better than you or these hypocrites that I mentioned before, but for me, hypocracy in people is no grounds to discredit the existance of God. And I would like to apologize to the people who have been wronged in any way by the Christian church. Feel free to openly blame me or any other christian, but before you discredit the existance of my God, keep in mind that to believe in him, you don't have to take on the attitudes or the frailties of the church. That said, I would have to say, yes, I believe in a God, and he does happen to fit the description of the God mentioned in the Christian Bible and in the Torah. And, no, I don't believe in him, blindly, or because it's convenient for me to believe in him, but because, his existance, and the status of Jesus as his son, simply makes sense(ask me why, I dare you). Also, I greatly appreciate the views and religions of others, and that, for thier lives, believing what they do makes sense for them. I also like to think of life in terms of modern Science and Philosophy in coexistance with God. So there, I am a Christian, by bare definition only. haha...maybe the only reason I stick to my beliefs is because most people I know discredit them with sound, reliable evidence and I just like to be different...I have to say though, overall, I agree with target the most....oh yeah, please show me the error of my ways....I'd love to know any fault anybody sees in my belief! :D seriously! view post


posted 14 Mar 2006, 08:03 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Jeez, I just can't stay away from this forum...it's the thread that never dies!! anyway, I keep seeing this reoccuring idea here that being a "good person" has somthing to do with being a Christian....not true...in it's purest form, Christianity should have nothing to do with being a good person. It's simply the belief that there is a God and he had a son...so and a so forth...but whether or not you're a good person has nothing to do with whether or not you get into heaven, according to the Bible anyway. It's simply believing that Jesus is God's son and he died for us so we could live. That's it...I think the ten commandments are a good suggestion, but you can't get into heaven by good acts. I think a lot of Christians fail to realize this as well, and so maybe that's why this idea of if you be good, you'll go to heaven keeps showing up view post


posted 14 Mar 2006, 16:03 in Off-Topic DiscussionTop 10 (or so) Ways You Kow You're an R. Scott Bakker Fan by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

sadly enough, these aren't witty jokes: You start trying to think and say two different things at the same time. You get caught staring at someone whilst you try to "read" their face. You begin to call your bathroom and/or bedroom Sumna, and yourself the Holy Shriah. You repeatedly use the following phrases and metaphores: sweet Sejenus, death came swirling down, "peaches," "thumbs," and "apples." You prick your wife in the face with a needle while she sleeps, just in case. The highlight of your day would be daydreaming about being bound to the nude corpse of Serwe on a ring hanging from a tree ...ok, that last one is more of a sign that you're either morbidly depressed or just plain morbid, but it's the reference that counts. Just a warning: If we're not careful, these could easily become Jeff Foxworthy jokes....I'm just saying, let's not stoop so low. view post


posted 14 Mar 2006, 17:03 in Off-Topic DiscussionStarring "Insert Actor Here" as Kelhuss! by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Now i think this would be kinda ironic, but how bout that guy who played Jesus in the Passion...lol...hey, the books describe him as a blond guy with a beard... Also, the first time I thought about anyone playing a character in the book was Ikurei Istriya, ya know, Xerius's mother....for whatever reason, I always pictured her as Susan Sarandon. I know it sounds way to obvious but I think the California govenator would make a good Cnaiur, not only because of his frame, but also because Cnair is said to have a heavy gutteral accent...perfect! Another candidate for Cnaiur would be André the Giant, but then again, he just looks too....huggable. I completely agree with gierra on Gary Oldman as Nautzera and John Noble as Eleäzaras. view post

posted 15 Mar 2006, 02:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtSkin-Spies have Souls by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

...well from what we know, we're not quite sure what kind of body Aurang possesed when he took advantage of Esmi...do we? Is there somthing I'm forgetting? cuz the Inchoroi can basically engineer flesh, since we've decided that the Tenke is more science rather than sorcery. If they can make sranc, bashrag, ect. why not otherthings. maybe the body that had sex with Esmenet was Aurang's own personalized creation, maybe it was his own body...besides, didn't TTT describe him as having dark wings, or somthing like that, when he seduced Esmenet the second time so that he coul posses her? I'm recalling this from memory, tho, so it could be complete hogwash. view post


posted 15 Mar 2006, 03:03 in Author Q & AA Prince of Nothing Wiki by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Hey, after i finished the series, I started to go through the books looking for minor characters and battles and the terms listed in the TTT glossary and recording where they turn up in the books...I just thought that might be useful if a subject came up that I don't remeber reading it...is that what you guys are talking about? The idea came when I found my dad's old exhaustive concordance to the Biblbe...and strangely enough the first thing I thought was, "hey, this would be a great idea for the PoN series." lol, you might be an R.

Fan art for the PoN posted 15 Mar 2006, 03:03 in Author Q & AFan art for the PoN by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Hey scott, Just wondering, How did you invision Achamian, Kellhus, Esmenet, and Cnaiur as looking, specifically? I know you described them several times but no matter how hard I try, I can't get a propper image in my head...the reason I ask is because I love to do Acryllic portraits and I wanted to, maybe, do one of the PoN characters. Maybe it would be easier to describe them in terms of what actor would play them in the movie that I would definately see if such a thing were to come to pass. :D hoping? wishing? anyway, what do you think? view post

I like what Jon Stewart said about it, "...cut the atom this way, give power to the entire world, cut it the other way, blow the s*** out of it." But I agree, nuclear power is one of the better, less expensive forms of energy. ANd sure, it has its cons, but what energy source doesn't? As for cars, the idea of running on corn is pretty entertaining. :) view post


posted 15 Mar 2006, 04:03 in Philosophy Discussionwho should determine what is "right"? by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

funny, noone even attempted to suggest that right and wrong are inherent in the human mind....for the sake of argument, I'm gunna say that it is, I'm gunna rock the boat alittle :) . And in attempts to define right *hides behind bullet-proof glass* I'd say "right" or "good" is the conforming to nature....if man gets burnt by fire, he doesn't touch fire again. touching fire is bad. As for things like courtesy, kindness, compassion, and the many other things our society holds to be "good" I really can't say who should determine those to be benevolent, but I can't help but notice that these things are pretty much universally accepted as good in most societies. ok, that first part was more of a play on the words "good" and "bad" seeing as how the both have different connotations in different contexts....in other words, I was bein a smartass :D [/i] view post

yeah, I was wondering why there wasn't a fan art section...I guess you're right tho, too many people have different ideas what the characters look like, but I thought that, being the one who conceived them, Scott should have a good idea of what they look like. view post

posted 15 Mar 2006, 12:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtSkin-Spies have Souls by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

...ok, but what's a "glamour?" I think i remember somthing about the Inchoroi disguising Golgotterath with some kind of Illusion. If that's true then it would suggest that the Inchoroi could use that kind of illusion, but it wouldn't explain why Esmi [i:2254yf70]felt[/i:2254yf70] Aurang inside her....either way, it's only speculation, nothing in the book specifically says how Aurang went about seducing Esmi, just that he did. ...guess that's all that's really important.

Ciphrang, altogether confusing posted 15 Mar 2006, 18:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtCiphrang, altogether confusing by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Oh, I have a whole slew of questions about the Ciphrang. Ok first, and maybe I should be asking scott this but, why aren't they mentioned in the TTT glossary? second: are they Vulnreble to chorae and if so why? It's on page 325 where those three Ciphrang descend onto the First Temple and broke through the roof and the Voice tells them "Fall upon them!...Rend them! Only in their midst will you be safe from the Chorae!" Also on page 326, the Ciphrang called Setmahaga falls when he is struct in the eye by an "absence" which is how Schoolmen refer to Chorae. third: What's this voice they're hearing? Again, I curse myself for not rereading the books, but I don't remember reading anything about any "voice" in relation to the Ciphrang. finally, this has more to do with the Daimos than the Ciphrang, but, When Iyokus calls them, what's the deal with him drawing things....Is it an addition to the utterals and inutterals? view post

you have to hear this! posted 16 Mar 2006, 07:03 in Off-Topic Discussionyou have to hear this! by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

you guys 'll get a kick outa this: I finished TTT not too long ago, and, tho the ending was not as happy as I expected, the way I finished the book was perfect! Ok, I was at walmart with my good friend ron (he was looking for something for his girlfriend for her birthday) and I happened to have brought TTT with me. As he obsessed over what color lingerie she might wear, I decided to finish the book. I was about 50 pages away and as I read, this old hillbilly who was wearin some kinda animal skin coat (not even joking) came and sat next to me. He took a long sigh and asked, "Whacha readin in them thur book hoss? (exact words! :lol: I swear!). Now, I can't resist from explaining a good book to someone, even complete strangers. So I started from TDTCB and summarized as best I could the entire series...And he looked at me and he almost screamed, "SOUNDS LIKES THE WORK OF THE DEVIL TO ME!" And from there we made a big scene in the middle of walmart, I. pointlessly trying to defend the series and trying to show this strange man the utter genius in it, and he continued to rant and rave about how I was gunna burn with Hitler and all them "Calaforni Liberals." It's funny now, but at the time, I was enfuriated. I don't wana go into detail, but we went from a heated argument to name calling to the point were I was starting to roll up my cuffs. Luckily by that time, we got so loud that one of the employees had called the police (this guy was about a foot taller than I am). So we were both halled off down town and put into holding (by that time walmart had confiscated TTT cuz they thought it was merchandice). The cops let me off with a warning but I had to apologize to the hillibilly first! :roll: Appearently they had decided that I was to blame...who's to say I wasn't? Oh well. Before they "let me back into society" an employee from walmart came to give me back TTT because appearently walmart doesn't carry it (go figure) . And I didn't have a ride (ron had picked me up) so as a certain officer Jones (nice guy) drove me back to my appartment, I finally finished the last 48 pages. And [b:15t0twbq]that[/b:15t0twbq] is how [i:15t0twbq]I[/i:15t0twbq] finished TTT.....I swear on the grave of my dead cat, fifi, that this entire story is completely true! view post

wow, that's some pretty cool speculation :) . I would've never thought of comparing Seswatha and Celmomas to Achamian and Kellhus...I like the idea, paralleling two men, one a gnostic schoolman and the other an Anasurimbor, one pair of them in different times. Both at odds and both fighting against different apocalypses. I guess it's possible that history repeats itself in Earwa as well. view post


posted 16 Mar 2006, 13:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtCiphrang, altogether confusing by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

that makes sense since Chiphrang are called thru sorcery...I wonder tho, if Chiphrang are just "demons" in the sense that they've never been human, or are the disembodied souls of people who have died...and if so, are they the souls of the damned (i.e. schoolman) and continue to bare the mark in the Outside. That might explain why Chorae binds them to the Outside. Ok, maybe they're not "damned" but just..."special." :? sorry but, for whatever reason, I didn't really understand the Ciphrang....I guess that was the part in the book where I was trying to read and watch x-files at the same time :lol: . view post

I love to draw and paint, and I've never tried marijuana. But I had a friend I liked to paint with who tried it several times...We did a series together of paintings that either he or I would start and the other would finish. Interestingly enough, we were doing an oil on canvas while he was high and it was the only painting, that we made, that anyone had ever wanted to buy. You can interpret that anyway you want...but I've since decided to not smoke mj, mainly for artistic reasons. Doesn't make a lot of sense, I know, but I liked the paintings we did when he wasn't high, even tho no body else does...... :cry: And as for my perception of illegal drugs, I haven't really decided what I think. I mean, my idea of them is constantly is changing...especially marijuana.... For instance, I used to think anything marijuana was just unhealthy, then, just recently, they came out with a marijuana-based prescription drug that treats diabetes. But, being raised in Hawaii, I used to see a lot of drug and alcohol abuse and I've had friends who have tried marijuana and they had some bad experiences, others decided marijuana was the best thing that ever happened to them. I also had a friend who was strung out on LSD a lot and she was a great person even when she was hallucinating, and she never one hurt her self....I've heard of a lot less lucky people who have tried LSD too. I guss what I'm trying to say is my views on illegal drugs change depending on the perosn using them, since the how people react to drugs change from indiviual to individual.... view post

I guess I just wanted to veer away from typical fantasy fanart seeing as the people in PoN aren't typical fantasy characters. I think I've been reading too much R.A. Salvatore.

usually, I'm more into samurai fiction (not a very popular genre), but one day I found this book called "Across the Nightengale floor." It was more fantasy than samurai fiction and from there I started to experiment with more fantasy. I guess at that time, I became bi-genre-curious, and then, after a while, I gave up samurai fiction alltogether (I'd read most of the samurai fiction books, anyway). But really, I'd read some of Tolkien's works , and so the idea of the fantasy genre has always appealed to me. view post

yeah, I always assumed that that stemmed from the "maddness" (how mohengus sees it, anyway) that Kellhus started to undergo...since he says to himself, "What is this, father? pity?" before he decides not to strike down Cnaiur. But when Akka confronts him at the end, Kellhus doesn't even question whether or not to keep him alive. So I don't know, did Kellhus keep from killing Akka out of pity (or madness) or does Akka still have somthing to teach him? I wonder what, if so? view post

Why's it such a bad thing, tho, to have faith solely for the purpose of having faith? ooops, I said the f word. I think the idea of deviating from (or just not believing) in faith (without interior motives, that is) stems from the idea that somthing like that could only hinder the betterment of society, and that's not entirely true. For, me, I guess, having faith in [i:1zpitrsn]somthing[/i:1zpitrsn] couldn't hurt...that is if your faith is pure and you don't have any interior motives (i.e. the blind, lazy belief in a god for the sake of self betterment).

yeah...that's kinda the retarded thing about faith...it really goes against rational thought and intellectual...anything...that we can understand. Idk if religiosity is somthing inherent, but I think faith is somthing pretty universal. Not necessarily faith in a god or gods or a supreme being or the supernatural or whatever. But just faith in general is somthing that seems to define "world born" men. Like when you put your money in a bank, you generally have faith that, unless you buy somthing, that money's gunna stay there. But you have no real way of knowing that it will cuz the possibilities are endless. The dunyain, of course, know almost all the possibilities and even the most likely among them and so they've ruled out the need for faith. I guess what I'm saying is faith is somthing that we need (unless you're dunyain), despite what it's in. Sorry, again. I'm not trying to impose my beliefs on you, I'm just confirming to myslef what I believe, I guess. :roll: Yeah, it's stubborn, it doesn't listen to reason, but when it comes right down to it, faith just makes sense of a world were the only absolute is uncertainty. And gierra, I can tell you're a really nice, loving person just talking to you, and no, believing that some dude was savagely murdered doesn't make anyone better in anyway and there is no reason that you should. :D but believing that it happened, again, goes back to the whole faith thing... view post

I agree, Akka will become great in the three seas. At first it doesn't make sense for me to say that, now that he's a wizard and an outcast from the Zaudunyani (if that's what they still call themselves) since he rebuked Kellhus, but remember, he still hasn't written the [i:tmdaztc4]Compendium of the First Holy War[/i:tmdaztc4], and why would he be compelled to write a book if noone would be compelled to read it? So I say it's completely plausible that Akka might still have somthing to offer Kellhus in AE. There's also the possibility that Kellhus might plummet so far into the "madness " that he starts feeling compassion and other "legion" and forgive Akka. Or maybe I'm a sentimental fool who wants the cool character to be the "good guy." :oops: :( But hey, it's all just speculation anyway :lol: . view post

:lol: :lol: ..government conspiracies....anyway, yes, faith in somthing that is likely to happen, and faith in the unlikely are definitely on opposite sides of the spectrum of faith. I guess the question of Christianity is how much faith do you have? And I loath to admit this, but Christians sometimes have petty contests to see who has the most faith :roll: . What I don't like is Christians who don't question what their faith stems from at all. For example, I have faith because, one, it's nice to think there is a being out there that loves everyone no matter what, and two, the probabilities of the Big Bang being the author of life is unlikely to me. I'm not saying it didn't happen, but without some kind of force guiding it along, the possibilities that it created life are astronomical. A lot of non christian scientist agree and have come to this conclusion...not that a god exists but that they need to rethink the Big Bang theory. Besides, what came before the big bang? I wana say, too, that I appreciate your comments, randal and gierra, and wana thank you for being so excepting and patient with someone so stubborn. :lol: As for the government conspiracies, if you don't believe in those, you're going to hell!

well...belief in God or a god (or however you want to spell it :lol: ) has nothing to do with explanation. faith, theoretically anyway, goes without explanation or complete understanding or perfect reasoning for that matter. faith simply [i:97mz05nw]is[/i:97mz05nw]. as for evolution and the big bang, I don't really see how those things couldn't co-exist with the idea of a supreme being. It's quite obvious that people adapt to their envioronments, and if the structure of the universe suggests a big explosion made it as it is today, then so be it. those things are easy to have faith in. there is sound, reliable, observable evidence behind them. but there is no way in knowing that for sure, because there is no way in knowing anything for sure. and it's the exact same way with God. the idea of God is that he [i:97mz05nw]came before[/i:97mz05nw], and simply that...it's quite simple to comprehend because there's no real reason to question it. see, i'm completely happy with not knowing why and how the universe was made, it's just another uncertainty, another unkown. we see patterns in the world. only if we conform to the patterns may we survive. after a while, we found out that the more we learned of these patterns, the more power we held in the world. the idea is that not only do these patterns not apply to God, but also that he created them. he stands outside of time and reason and our complete understanding. i know, it's easy to argue that this kind of thinking hinders understanding of our world and that people who think like this are unrealistic and want to give the meaning and origin of life a simple explanation. but that's not the case at all. God isn't simply the Christian's explanation, he's the Christian's creator, everyone's creator, for that matter. It doesn't obligate me or anyone to believe this, nor does it hinder the growth of the mind or civilized society in any way. And so when someone asks me, "why do you believe in God?" I respond "why not?" and that truly is my whole explanation, because in a world were nothing is certain, why should the existance of the entity who created it be certain? view post

I agree EE. I have a hard time believing that kellhus is developing morality. I'd say it was less of a morality and more of a madness (like mohengus said). At one point, when he's preaching, he thinks of the Inrithi as smelly apes. He goes into some detail about how he could smell them. I think that if kellhus had any morals (as defined by our society) he wouldn't still be manipulating the Inrithi. Then again, it really comes down to what morals really are. For all I know kellhus could be functioning on his own set of "morals." He may have decided, already, what's "right" and "good." view post

Doesn't Kellhus fall into that particular group? or am i misunderstanding the concept of sealing off the outside?

I regret reading the Quran, not because it's against my beliefs or anything, it was just written poorly and the style was horrible, and i couldn't relate to the characters at all, plus, there was not much of a plot. Overall, i think it's way overrated and Mouhammed fans are almost as crazy as R. Scott Bakker fans. (just kidding, please don't lynch me) other than that, if i read a book and it doesn't happen to be as well written as others, i don't go complaining about it. *cough coughc* pussies *cough* Sure, some authors suck, period, but maybe some of them had a genuine, original idea and their writing style just sucks ass.......the cold, hard truth is that no one can use that original premise anymore because they will be sued out their asses for plagiarism. So we have to enjoy these original ideas in thier original, shitty format. end of story. and before anyone asks, i am not a goodkind fan nor am i in disagreement with what brahm_k said, nor was i responding to his post, just thought i would make that clear. view post

[quote="gierra":qkgli9u7]my hair does not look unbrushed.. i brush it with my hands, and sometimes before i wash it to get rid of stray hairs.. but brushing my hair makes it pretty frizzy...[/quote:qkgli9u7] brushes are the worlds biggest lie...the only thing brushes do is get stuck and to harrol, if i were to ask my little sis that, she wouldn't revert to violence, she would just say "your face" view post

[quote="Entropic_existence":1m6coagd]I'm still here, I usually log in every few days to delete spam except for during the last week and a half-two weeks where commitments to my Masters work reduced my availabilty to even sleep :) Don't worry I won't be abandoning the board anytime soon to let it be overrun by the evil spammers. Although now I spend so much time deleting spam and reporting spam accounts that I don't leap into the discussions quite so much. Anyway I do my best to at least log in every two days or so, if not every day when I can.[/quote:1m6coagd] i'm glad to see you aren't lying dead in a pile of penis pills, and good luck on your masters!! don't get too overwhelmed with the spam and stuff, i'm having a pretty fun time making fun of it and whatnot view post

psychological affects of ranks in forums posted 07 Oct 2006, 07:10 in Philosophy Discussionpsychological affects of ranks in forums by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

i was wondering how ranks affect you guys especially on this forum....does it serve any psychological purpose other than cerimonial? what about the phonetic titles on this forum that we use (althought most of us mostly usually don't mention them while posting) such as didact and subdidact ect.? do these titles conform to the capatalist agenda (that was not a serious question, please don't answer it...well...i i guess you can) anyway...comment on the titles and ranks in general i guess....and make it sound philisophical for zues' sake view post

[quote="Harrol":2tsawq6e]Edge I like your sisters style already. I have five sister with three of them being older than me. It was the older ones that would attack me and the younger ones that would just fire back with their own insults.[/quote:2tsawq6e] isn't it ironic that the younger ones revert to verbal/psychological abuse and the olders (supposedly wiser) siesters, revert to violent tactics.....life is absurd.... view post
