Does anyone else with a mental illness find it offensive when other people use "crazy" or "insane" as an adjective?
Mental Illnesses are usually associated with high intellect. Because you think differently than most people, you see the world differently than most people. Sometimes you even see what most people can't see in the world and that pushes you to do something about it, like creating. All known Geniuses to mankind had a few "mental illnesses". So when people refer to me as crazy sometimes, I laugh at their simplicity of thought and shrug it off. Also, I find that when people call you insane for some random thing that you do, do something really crazy to them and they will forever respect you.

Do national secrets negate the democratic status of a nation?
Haven't you realize that voting is just a joke nowadays? You don't really get to chose your president, and you only have two parties who have been running the country since forever. When election comes you get two choices, either democrat or republican. It doesn't matter who the face of each a party is for the election, it's still the same teams behind each head, every time, for each election and Americans call it an election for the people by the people. The people you vote into power are just puppets for their parties. They provide entertainment for the people with each new face that gets elected, but the strings are being pulled by the two parties.

Are the Youth of today Writing the Future?
Think about this: The only reason there was a past, is because there was a "now" moment that people lived in and accomplished things. The only reason there might be a future, is because there is a "now" moment that people are using to accomplish things. When you think about it, the future and the past don't exist, the only thing that does is the "now" moment. Who's writing the future? Every single living person is writing the future. Our thoughts create our reality and the world we live in., and not the other way around. You are all that there is to be, so therefore by being, you leave a mark on reality. Even the little South African gold mine worker can write history by just being a gold miner; he's part of a workforce that pushes the gold for the world, if he wasn't there, that's one less person to work the mine, meaning less labor power, slower production. By just being there, also, he can be photographed by another person (who's being), and have his portrait shown to the world and expose the conditions of labor where he comes from (sparking the mind of viewers worldwide, creating new thoughts that they might work on, to, in their turn, affect the world one way or another. Maybe by creating projects, or starting movements, that, in their turn spark other minds to do other things that affect reality on a grand scale). It's a chain reaction proving that we're all connected by our minds, and we're all one. Imagine if Martin Luther King Jr never had a dream? Or Gandhi took arms instead peace? Or if Hitler had thought slightly differently? I know these are men who had a bigger platform to act, but still, just imagine if they had thought slightly differently... The world wouldn't be as it is now. No matter how small or insignificant a person might think of himself, he plays a big part in reality by just existing and being. Some people get inspired by just observing others, imagine if the observer had no one to observe? I think I went too deep, but you get the point

Can you Really Love Your Enemies?
Quick sidebar sir, but tell me how exactly is jail/prison improving people? If you put a wild animal in a cage for a period of time, I'm sure it won't magically turn into a calf when you let it out. Are you aware of the atrocities that happen in the jail/prison world?

the Dumbing down of America
Very interesting topic. I have a video that shows the current state of consciousness in American news. If these are the people that tell you what's up, you better starting looking down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ff79iUBe9TY Skip to 3:16

To all food lovers: Do we want to continue not knowing exactly how and where our food items are being grown and manufactured?
Where exactly do you live? Oatmeal is way cheaper than cereal. A box of cereal is like $3 to $5 in New York, if you're going for something decent. A large container of Oatmeal goes for $2.30 to $4.75, and that's the general brand. Oats are oats, it doesn't matter if it's Quakers or not, we don't add anything to it before it's packaged. Buying expensive oats is like buying flavored water, a very bad move. I made the switch from cereal to oats a couple of months back, and boy was that a great move. Both for my body and my pockets. Consumerism makes you think that Cheerios and all these other "healthy cereals" are better for you. But they're only better if you compare them to the rest of the cereals that they sell you.A ruby among rocks is a jewel, but a ruby among diamonds is a rock. Humans have lived on basic oats for thousands of years, it's filled with nutrients and all you need is water and/or milk to prepare it. These cereals have a bunch of added stuff to them that your body makes an extra effort to process. GMO in your cereal? Skip it, just switch to oatmeal. "True, but if you see a label, telling you that only 15% of the cereal you are consuming are real food ingredients, and the rest are additives, but it reduces cholesterol.". Isn't that the label of all mass produced foods though haha? Half the stuff is not even natural and says it right on the box, yet people still buy it.

My question is related to the base of cosmology science and theories.
You didn't say anything that I didn't say, you just went more in depth with your description. A theory is not a fact, but is close to being one since they do tests and collect data from observations and come with rational deductions. We used to think that the earth was flat (was a theory), until someone proved otherwise. We used to believe that the earth was the center of the galaxy (was a theory) until the heliocentric model proved it wrong. That's why they're approximation to facts, close but not yet. It won't take long before most of our beliefs in Physics get shaken by the next genius to cine up with a breakthrough theory. I'm not saying that a theory is false, it is true to a certain extent, but is not a fact. What do you think I meant in my comment?

How would you challenge yourself?
You're talking about the TAO, simply being. You wake up and you go, where doesn't matter, but you go, collecting life experiences on your way. To where? There, here, and nowhere! Like a drop of water in the ocean. Great day indeed!
