RE: [Sartre] RE: FEELINGS
- i dont know miha ... the feeble statement that shows little thinking was in
direct proportion and by way of reply to your statement about procreation
<<< although no one pointed to the original feeble thang, but now that you
draw my attention to it .... i see
if we missed the point it seems a very long winded exchange of emails for
you to finally conclude this >>>> ... and here i speak for myself ... i was
always talking about the individual .... not once did you clarify the
collective .... twould be nice if our discourse has led you along your path
of thinking to a newly discovered aspect you had not yet thought out ?
animals do yes ... but again what distuinghes us (although i begin to doubt
this theory of late) is our capacity for thought <<< rationale, logic,
creativity ...... choice ... i have already accepted that YOUR thinking
allows you a certain viewpoint ... i have also accepted that your threshold
for thinking might not be as high as others <<< and that is fine ... i can
see how the collective would now be of interest to you.
miha ... there was a point to this email of yours ? again i might be
missing something <<< Gina

After reading heinrich's comments I was sad to see,
that you both completely missed the point. I was not
talking of individuals as such, but of our instincts
as a collective thing, since we all have basically the
same feeling (or instincts) we just react to them
differently, which does not mean that they are
something. We are just products of evolution,
constantly seeking options to procreate... "Some
lovers choose not to have children" is a really feeble
statement which proves have little thinking he put
And as far as human thinking is cencerned, it has been
proven that animals also have some primitive (or
advanced who knows) way of thinking...
But nevermind, let's all live happily ever after...
