                      Hi Cindy & all, Silk here: Cindy how old are you? I suspect you will change your opinion [perhaps many times] as concerns the woof & warp of things before your days are done. Sarte & most philosophers have. One must becareful not to become a "philosophers groupie" as many an educated person hath done. Education & or reading books does not = wisdom nor enlightenment by any stretch of the imagination. All the books in the world will not endow one with wisdom or better yet commonsense. Any parrot can spend a few years in college memorizing text & then calling forth the correct answers to questions posed on an examination & pass & thus recieve a diploma. This is not wisdom! About groupies: Throughout history a variety of persons have become famous (well known) for a myriad of reasons & for some reason your average groupie will cling to their every word as though it was gospel when in fact these "famous personages" were not in the least qualified to speak on the particular subject. A good chess player is a good chess player is a good chess... and only that until proven otherwise, one mustn't get into to the habit of faulty deduction. It is like Syllogisms: All mothers are good......... We know thats not true however & it's a big however........

                      You have movie actors coming out & speaking their mind on subjects they know virtually nothing about & are taken seriously! I do not know you therefore I cannot attest to your gullibility nor as to how impressionable you may be, I only make these remarks to perhaps awaken you to the fact that some of these "alleged" great thinkers were only plaigiarists! I would go so far as to say that the greatest minds have never been recorded. Those who know don't speak (are confident & self contained & need not the concurrence of their fellow man), those who don't do! An individual sure of themself & of their beliefs need not the approval nor validation of their peers.

                      Einstein stood on the shoulders of Faraday, Newton, Galileo & who knows how many countless others........I personally owe a debt of gratitude to the thinkers be their thoughts counterfeit or sterling I only say lets keep things in their proper perspective, N'est-ce pas?

                      "god" appeared to 4 men & said "your wish is my command"! The first wised for wealth & was so given. The 2nd wished for power & was so given. The 3rd desired fame & was so given. The 4th humbly requested wisdom & was rendered wise. [We return years later] the 1st who wished for wealth had squandered it & was now destitute, the 2nd who craved power had been hanged by his subjects for the very abuse of such power, the third & his fame had grown so egotistical that all respect was lost & he was laughed at & riduculed for the pompous fool that he was & so he comitted suicide! The 4th who had requested wisdom now had all three, wealth, power & fame for it requires wisdom to request it!  chao/Silk
