Here’s another email...

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items in front of him.

When the class began, he picked up a large empty jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks that were about 2" in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar....

The "Theory of Evolution" and the "Big Bang" theory work with religion.

In a book club meeting i had a theory that jus randomly flashed before my eyes within wat seemed a matter of seconds. It seemed to hav explained the secret of our universe.

Anyway during the meeting the "Law of Conservation of Energy" ran through my head. This law states that "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed it can only be transformed." This law brought me to two different theories.

The first part of the law: "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed." This law brought me recognize that it is infinite and beyond...

Other philosophical traditions, such as African philosophy, are rarely considered bởi foreign academia. Since emphasis is mainly placed on Western philosophy as a reference point, the study, preservation and dissemination of valuable, but lesser known, non-Western philosophical works face many obstacles. Key African philosophers include the Fulani Usman Dan Fodio, founder of the Sokoto Caliphate of Northern Nigeria and Umar Tall of Senegal; both were prolific Islamic scholars. In the post-colonial period, different hình ảnh of what could be argued as "African" Philosophy from the level of epistemology have risen. These could include the thoughts and enquiries of such individuals as Cheik Anta Diop, Francis Ohanyido, C.L. Momoh, and Chinweizu.

The philosophy of the modern and contemporary African world, including the diaspora, is often known as Africana Philosophy. Key philosophers include Frantz Fanon, Kwesi Wiredu, Paget Henry, Lewis Gordon, Mabogo Percy thêm and many others.

From an email.


I think the life cycle is all backwards.

bạn should start out dead and get it out of the way.

Then, bạn wake up in an old age trang chủ feeling better every day.

bạn get kicked out for being too healthy; go collect your pension, then when bạn start work, bạn get a vàng watch on your first day.

bạn work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

bạn drink alcohol, bạn party, you're generally promiscuous and bạn get ready for High School.

bạn go to primary school, bạn become a kid , bạn play, bạn have no responsibilities, bạn become a baby, and then...

bạn spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like conditions; central heating, room service on tap, larger quarters every day, and then, bạn finish off as an orgasm.

I rest my case.

"It takes a great deal of intelligence to reach the top. It takes an even greater deal of wisdom, however, to remain at the top."

"Fear can turn even the most gentle of men into the most barbaric of brutes."

"The very passion which serves as the great flame of courage, strength, and determination can also serve as a poison to the soul."

"A life without pain is not a life at all."
The French Revolution constituted for the conscience of the dominant aristocratic class a fall from innocence, and upturning of the natural chain of events that resounded all over Europe; the old regime became, in their imaginary, a paradise lost. This explains why some romantic poets born in the higher classes were keen on seeing themselves as faded aristocrats, expelled from their comfortable milieu bởi a reverse of fortune hoặc a thiết kế of destiny. Byron and Shelley are the prime instances of this vital pose. In The Giaour he writes on a vampiric character: "The common crowd but see the gloom/...
