      elbookdoc,

      Am I yelling at you? No. You just
      misunderstood my post based on your own
      suggestion from your previous
      post in which, to remind you, you said: "I
      don't understand your post". It is too broad
      and too vague. Whereas
      if you say "I think your foolish statement
      means. . .", then I can realize, my gawd, I
      never meant to say that at
      all". etc....

      So, I am simply making use of your own
      suggestions by using the kind of language
      that you prefer; I doubt,
      however, that you recall any of the things
      you said, unless you still have it in your
      files. I am just trying to play
      your own game. Besides, we already know the
      creative originality of your own style of
      writing your posts, so,
      why insist upon it? A simple "REPLY" would
      be more convenient and practical for our
      purposes; that way
      we both would know what we are talking about,
      and thus, avoid misunderstandings. In my
      computer this
      feature is located on the top left corner of
      the screen. (just in case you didn't know
      it).

      No, I don't want you to shut up. Actually, I
      have found your conversation rather amusing
      and funny, and as you
      say, I just run hot and cold like
      desinterested water. As to the rest of my
      post, I prefer not to elaborate anymore
      on it right now. I"m really tired. (talk to
      you later invaluable).

      Charles

      I won't say I don't get it, but are you
      yelling at me?

      << I think that your foolish statement means
      that you have an evil
      spirit in possessing Eduard's comprehension
      in the stupid
      obscurity of your regular posts>>

      Ahem...I realize I am not mainstream. I was,
      again, commenting
      on how I think he is not really reading
      *other people's* posts
      before answering, and I have more faith in
      ANY human's ability
      than what he displays at times. The friggin
      guy isn't a dunce, and
      at times he quits too soon. Forgive me for
      respecting ability
      above the interest to show it. I don't care
      if he reads my
      posts...he and I do not speak the same
      language, nor with the
      same interests. That is, ours are
      different -- and I can't vote mine
      as better.

      <<by judicious selection, rejection, and
      arrangement, he gives to
      truth those attractions which have been
      usurped by fiction.>>

      I believe it is impossible to tell truth from
      fiction. I believe history
      is tainted by fiction, I believe people can't
      always tell when they
      are fictionalizing. I believe sometimes
      fiction becomes "truth" ,
      whatever that is.

      <<the degree in which they elucidate the
      condition of the
      individual perspectives and the nature of
      man.>>

      Hunh? This might be good for you, but as a
      fictional character,
      there is no value in someone seeing my
      perspective -- or, rather,
      I think it is impossible....and aren't ya'll
      lucky?

      I know dick about the nature of man...In
      fact, I think 'nature' is a
      hoax. We have similiarities because we are
      not interesting
      enough to delight in difference.

      People blow.

      << You consider no anecdote, no peculiarity
      of manners, no
      familiar saying as too insignificant for our
      notice>>

      Hmm. as you are not me, from what I
      understand, I wonder how
      you know this. It is not something I have
      previously thought, and
      currently don't believe. That is, I use
      anecdotes, I realize
      everyone is peculiar, there are too many
      familiar sayings, and I
      should go completely unnoticed. I'd have more
      fun, I swear.

      << If the statement is too broad and too
      vague just let's take a
      quick look at the history of the vagueness
      and incomprehensible
      jargon in the history of philosophy:
      Aristotle, Kant, Sartre. . .etc.>>

      Oh...here we go name dropping. My interest is
      not to repeat
      those mistakes. Books tell me someone made
      them already. I
      disrespect everything, hold idea above all
      and don't believe in
      reality...or history. names are like leaves
      in the wind. But if I were
      to know one of these fellows, I'd encourage
      them NOT to make a
      mistake by ignoring conclusions, and how they
      can be
      subdivided. And not to talk so vaguely as to
      be misunderstood --
      on purpose. There are those who purposely
      build
      smokescreens around the nothing they are
      trying to convey.

      And I don't like it.

      There is nothing wrong with revisiting and
      clarifying.

      And I think I have nothing to say, so I have
      to make it interesting
      for me to say it.

      <<by clear and appropiate images presented in
      every line. >>

      Talk about demanding. no one holds themself
      to this. no one.

      Would you prefer I shut up? I don't mind. I
      thought what I was
      saying was equally invaluable to everything
      else I see...but
      perhaps it is not. Perhaps I am more
      invaluable than everything,
      and at least then I have accomplished
      something. And if I shut
      up, those creatures of my imagination can
      have this discussion
      all to themselves. I can easily have my
      insane part elsewhere.

      You'll forgive me if I find that you run hot
      and cold, like
      disinterested water.
