    The Great Argus Pheasant display looks just like the bustle of certain Native American dancers.


    I wonder what Jordan would think...

    As long as they took personal responsibility for it, he'd probably approve!

    As far as I could see, they totally did. No rape.

    Those males are willing to take as much responsibility as they can, especially if their genes continue.

    This is cool, I noticed something...just for fun... When he was explaining the Danfloss (I think) universe he literally did a tongue-in-cheek thing. I think it was because he felt that he was flattering himself given his suggestion for testing intrapersonal intelligence. A suggestion to solve a problem that the directors had not been able to solve.

    For a long time I wondered why it was stated that linguistic intelligence could be used in a sociopathic way, my pre forum days ... ...it seems only too obvious now.

    This resolves the dilemma for those who understand it -

    The Soul’s First Step

    The soul starts at a single point in a “soulscape.”
    It is empty of experience, a totally empty vessel. The vessel is named “a soul” and at its “birth” it has only one quality, that being that it is individuated.

    Again… no other quality.

    Thus, all souls start out equal - if that term, “equal,” appeals to you, the reader.

    I would say, “All souls start with the same potential.”

    A “lifetime” the emerges as a physical body that exists within a shared reality is one of potentially infinite lifetimes - certainly hundreds if not thousands if not as many as one may wish or as many as might be possible, limited only by infinity.

    Question: How likely is it that at the moment of conception and/or birth… but actually the question is, how likely is it at the moment a particular soul enters that particular physical body vehicle, that that very “soul’s state” (its “soul location” along its “soul journey” with all the baggage accumulated along the way and the attitudes it has developed and possesses)… that that soul at that very moment of insertion is “equal” in every aspect and/or quality to any other incarnate soul?

    The greatest mistake we make on Earth is that we want what is “not equal” to be regarded equally and thus to be perceived the same.

    Equal rights are not the same thing as “all ‘men’ (ie. all women and men) are equal.” The line doesn't say "all men are equal."

    Referring to a well-known phrase -

    The phrase "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" appears in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, written in 1776.

    Note that the phrase says, “created equal.” When you look at it from the level of soul, and from the perspective that honors the greater framework of many “soul experiences” available for each soul, and you consider the “soul journey,” you can restate the phrase as –

    “All souls are created equal.”

    And now one can see the brilliance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s perhaps most famous quote - "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

    I wouldn't wish this experience on anyone. There are no shortcuts for suffering. Thanks for posting Wind!
