When does asking questions become a word game?

When you don’t understand why questions must be asked. At that point you become gullible, stupid. And easiky manipulated, like a majority of the voting public in the US.


So why are questions asked, especially the ones which open this thread???

They were your questions. You tell us.

L

So I will.  When one, such as the person here, has no rational dialogue to advance a conversational inquisition for fear others will see their gullibility, and are easily manipulated, by someone of like kind, who attempts to change the topic. Or when those spoken of here will say such things as : “English must me your second language?”  Or “how can I understand you when I can’t understand your grammar?  Finally, your grammar, sentence, and constructive phasing style is not standard English.”  Yet they find a way to understand when they have something to say.  Is that satisfactory for you LoisL?  If not, sorry.

Now that we have settled this off topic intrusion.  Perhaps you would like to indulge in providing some constructive input into the topic itself.  If not, I will excuse myself.  Thank you

Should I go deep enough within myself to open the door of my inner Conscience, then find a way to step into my soul, does my odyssey end there?

Well, okay.  In my humble opinion your odyssey would not end there - your odyssey will end when you expel your last breath.

Why would stepping inside your soul, however you may conceive that, seem like the end?  Seems it would be an adventure in itself, go for it.

Citizenschallenge, I see your reasoning in saying

your odyssey will end when you expel your last breath.

for death eliminates all knowing physical and mental activity of individuals when the grim reaper opens their bosom and squeeze their hearts, and removes it.  But then I consider my beginning in this parenthesis did not begin with a breath infiltrating my lungs.  So then does ones last breath really end ones odyssey?  Something to give thought to huh?

As far as your asking “Why would stepping inside your soul. . . seem like the end?” is the same question I ask seeking definition of.  So being we are asking the same question, where do we go from here to find and answer?

You missed the point of my explanation of how you continually miss the point. Your OP was nonsense. It only seemed to be a meaningful question as I tried to nicely explain. There is no meaningful, rational way to discuss your OP because it’s just words strung together. Now if you want to discuss what’s the meaning of your life as you live it until you die, well that a discussion we can have. But don’t expect the new-agey-speak to get us anywhere.

Fair enough “your” beginning started during the moment of conception between mom’s egg and dad’s sperm*.  That would be the “your” as in Me, Myself, and I.

I’m aware by virtue of a life long love of learning about Earth, evolution, and how we humans got here, etc.
that I’m a part of a much bigger story and that “my” beginnings go back as far a I want.

The blood in veins infuse me with echo’s my parent’s spirits, which they received from their parents, and so on.
Hell, if the evening is long enough and the scotch tasty enough we can trace our journey straight back to the Big Bang.

As someone else pointed out, it all comes down to definitions.  Your answers will only be as good as your questions.[/I]

*{not that you were human back then, you still needed to cross a few hurdles before that splendid moment occurred.}
