1. Please identify the diety you worship
2. How old do you think the earth is?
3. What was the purpose of attaching the belly dancer?
Thank YouJanuary 14, 2020 at 11:45 pm #318923
1. Me, I worship me.
2. What earth? I don’t believe in science fiction and fairy tales.
3. You see a belly dancer? Then, you are not taking in the whole picture.January 15, 2020 at 1:24 am #318930
Sree, your talking yourself in an psychological corner.
Even if you’re playing word games, by your own admission you are describing symptoms of sociopathy. Don’t get lost in that game.January 15, 2020 at 4:02 pm #318987

Sociopathy, a personality disorder, in the secular world is akin to sinful nature in the religious world.
Are you asking me to repent?January 15, 2020 at 5:13 pm #319006TimBParticipant
If my Jr High math teacher was more like that belly dancer, I would not have fallen asleep so much in math class.January 15, 2020 at 9:08 pm #319028
Are you asking me to repent?
Nope, I am cautioning you against becoming too self-absorbed. Healthy self-esteem is not a sin, its knowledge. Excessive self-indulgenge is a sin against yourself.January 15, 2020 at 10:30 pm #319055TimBParticipant
Sree, I think you should repent. But I don’t think you can.January 16, 2020 at 12:41 am #319084
What was your High School math teacher like, Tim? Did she have too much of a belly?January 16, 2020 at 12:54 am #319088

There is only me. There is no one else but me.January 16, 2020 at 7:49 am #319104
There is only me. There is no one else but me.
And what properties does your “me” enjoy? Mental me? Physical me?
You do realize your me is a biome consisting of a mental me, 10 % physical human cells and 90 % physical bacterial cells.
Your physical me is mostly bacterial, did you know that?
Without them critters you would not live very long, a couple days, tops.January 17, 2020 at 1:57 pm #319228LaustenKeymaster
Would you rather lose yourself in the sound of the violin or see the action of horse hair on cow gut?
If you are simply aware of what you are doing when, this is really not a question. Not an either/or question anyway. I briefly mentioned the difference to Xian recently with the example of seeing someone wink, and either knowing the full context of that and all it’s cultural implications, or just seeing it as muscles moving. It’s sad to me, that people can’t be aware of the science of light refraction and also enjoy the beauty of the rainbow. Why can’t you see the horse hair and still lose yourself in that sound? The musician understands it.January 17, 2020 at 7:54 pm #319249

Moreover, knowing the mathematics of music composition allows for the creation of timeless symphonies.
Music theory has no axiomatic foundation in modern mathematics, yet the basis of musical sound can be described mathematically (in acoustics) and exhibits “a remarkable array of number properties”. Elements of music such as its form, rhythm and metre, the pitches of its notes and the tempo of its pulse can be related to the measurement of time and frequency, offering ready analogies in geometry.
The attempt to structure and communicate new ways of composing and hearing music has led to musical applications of set theory, abstract algebra and number theory. Some composers have incorporated the golden ratio and Fibonacci numbers into their work
A jingle selling Coca Cola; “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony”, is not a musical work of genius. (althought it rests on mathematics).January 19, 2020 at 5:47 pm #319413

So, what instrument were you playing as a professional musician? Cite one timeless symphony.
