Are you serious? First time I peeled a banana I did it this way, and every time after that.

You're a monkey! Apparently that's how chimps eat their bananas.

And yeah, the internet is a funny place.

I learned about the Singularity movement. I'm equal parts fascinated and horrified. http://www.time.com/time/health/article ... 38,00.html I posted this online and realized once again that very few of the people I interact with enjoy reading and/or philosophical discussion. :(

I believe that the singularity is probably going to come one day, but I don't believe it will come that fast. Or at least I hope not.

It is kinda scary because it makes you think about the stuff you waste your time on.

I hope you are right but I think our brains have a difficult time processing the idea that is exponential growth and that's why the projections don't seem conservative enough. We tend to think linearly. I'm worried we are losing our humanity in exchange for convenience. What it means to be human may drastically alter over our lifetime. I long for self-actualization but not at the cost of our humanity. Ok...and now it's time for a rough segway into something more relevant to the post subject! :) I learned the other day that scientists think animals process time differently based upon the length of their lives. If we are able to slow/stop aging would we begin processing time differently???

If we were born, reached our peak growth then decelerated and died in a day, I think we'd process things differently. However, we wouldn't think it was weird because everyone else was doing it too. Who's to say 100 years is too short or too long a life span? We don't know because we haven't talked to other sentient beings who aren't human. We could live like flowers, we only have one season and it's short. Or we could outlive other creatures like dogs and cats so we really have the longest lifespan possible.

"How long does a man live, after all?

Does he live a thousand days, or one only?

A week, or several centuries?

How long does a man spend dying?

What does it mean to say 'for ever'?

Lost in these preoccupations
I set myself to clear things up.

I sought out knowledgeable priests.
I waited for them after their rituals,
I watched them when they went their ways
to visit God and the Devil.

They wearied of my questions.
They on their part knew very little;
they were no more than administrators.

Medical men received me
in between consultations,
a scalpel in each hand,
saturated in aureomycin,
busier each day.
As far as I could tell from their talk,
the problem was as follows:
it was not so much the death of a microbe -
they went down by the ton -
-but the few which survived
showeds signs of perversity.

They left me so startled
that I sought out the gravediggers.
I went to the rivers where they burn
enormous painted corpses,
tiny bony bodies,
emperors with an aura
of terrible curses,
women snuffed out at a stroke
by a wave of cholera.
There were whole beaches of dead
and ashy specialists.

When I got the chance
I asked them a slew of questions.
They offered to burn me;
it was the only thing they knew.

In my own country the undertakers
answered me, between drinks:
'Get yourself a good woman
and give up this nonsense.'

I never saw people so happy.

Raising their glasses they sang,
toasting health and death.
They were huge fornicators.

I returned home, much older
after crossing the world.

Now I question nobody.

But I know less every day."

Today I learned that I'm an imposter in my Al-Anon group and I have visions of "helping" them. I also learned that possibly my children are more INFP than myself!! I don't go the "fantasy" route..well..at least i didn't think so..but I was in denial!! My fantasy was "romantic fiction" books..and rose colored glasses (thick). My boys love that fantasy crap esp. all the computer games related to fantasy.

Also..gynecomastia (sp?) is most probably caused by eating more fast food than normal. Lots of hormones and plain crap in fast food. I'd be more worried about fast food than soy protein as far as causing gynecomastia.

"inconsistent personality" hahah..I've been searching for myself since day #1..INFP's are not sure who they are.

I think there's no such thing as a too long or short life per se, such a judgement is relative to what you want to achieve with it.
I learnt that an FP style of managing offended people seems to work better than speaking my mind. Its not fair lol, or maybe it is my mind and i've changed how it thinks. Regardless apparently one believes I could be a sociopath, doubt it, but i'll sure play on the fears for fun! :)
