An idea worth spreading

Study your history and it's origin. We are individual's. Analyze yourself as an individual. Study your make-up and it's origin. You will see we all originate from the same source. Try adhering to a lifestyle that is productive for all LIFE. Become a student of life.

Ed Yong: Zombie roaches and other parasite tales
Manipulation of free will is not elimination of free will. Everything has been manipulated to its purpose. (Genesis 1: 20-30) I wonder though does the cricket know when he eats the larvae that they will be inheriting the worm and in turn their death. If they are unaware that they are making this decision that is the true manipulation. The worm is not manipulating but in its subjective life is just living. The cricket was not manipulated by the worm so much as it was manipulated to eat something that would kill it.

How do individuals decide what is right rather than what is convenient to do?
We all write more then we need to. We have accepted the truth but as you state it is not our nature to "move on" we are analytically subjective. We are slaves or subject to our bodies and minds. These among other things. The barriers that prevent us from saying the truth directly force us to mystify the truth with over wording and explanation. Rest assured that we are all discussing the same truth.

The feeling of right should be the same. We are all the same (HUMAN). Even though we feel different. Truth or RIGHT is all the same. So why does it feel different? Everyone is not as physically "fit" as the next Everyone is not as knowledgeable as the next Everyone does not have the same awareness or sense of truth as the next Strength is power as well as knowledge. I can be stronger and more knowledgable so i can aslo be more aware of TRUTH. Yet once truth is revealed it does not defer. Although we may chose to be ignorant of Truth.

“…. The idea of religion has changed a lot over time and one cannot fully understand its development by relying on consistent use of the term, which "tends to minimize or cancel out the role of history". "What the West and the history of religions in its wake have objectified under the name 'religion' is ... something quite unique, which could be appropriate only to itself and its own history." He notes that St. Augustine's definition of religio differed from the way we used the modern word "religion". (Daniel Dubuisson, The Western Construction of Religion) I do not care to argue the meaning nor define religion for all people. I do not care to discuss religion. This is not the topic. The topic is TRUTH. Can we decipher what is TRUE from what is False or Right from what is Wrong? This is why History is important. Our use of language is really destroying the truth. In the video playlist Are You There GOD? people are not discussing religion as it pertains to them solely. While they are sharing subjective experiences you have to analyze their individual subjectivity as a whole. This points to the answer to our question. Truth like our physical bodies and sentient knowledge generate from the same source. So yes all truth is universal as all humans are. But we have had the span of time to decay from our original state of being therefore a lot of people are numb to their sense of truth.

Are all subjects equally difficult, or are some harder than others?
I find that the english language muddies definition and context greatly. Life is subjective. Meaning only YOU can experience life as YOU. When you ask "Are all subjects equally difficult....?" you are again using the word "subject" Since life is individually subjective we can only truly asses difficulty on an individual basis. We can find a general consensus and label groups accordingly but this is not a true assessment of difficulty as it pertains to "all subjects".

I like the concept you bring up here. "Now when someone who is wrong tells me that I am right I wonder if someone is recognizing what is right or agreeing with me because I be wrong. To me being informed that I be right or wrong distracts from focusing on what be right. It's not about who is right or wrong it is about what is right." You also touch on arrogance. You my friend are keeping this conversation alive. A person who is truly right will recognize when they are "SO" right that they are wrong. If being right causes someone to misinterpret our truth we "may" be going about expressing truth in the wrong way. I find that if someone says "MAN you are always right!!" this can sound condescending. No one wants to feel wrong so it hurst for them to feel you are right. If chosen we can all pursue right. So remind yourself, as i will do so for myself, that it does not matter the source of RIGHT or TRUTH it only matters how you decide to adhere.

I also felt the sting of the hosting prowess of Fritzie. TED is great because it consist of people who chose to do the right thing. Being drawn here based on our intellect and need to sustain it and share it we all posses a certain awareness. This is why trolling is not a "major" issue. Fritzie could have said you and you are close to breaking terms of use. Fritzie may not have felt we were close to breaking terms and may have said what was said coincidentally. However there is a hint of truth in his statement that made me and apparently Esteban take note. Esteban has confirmed without breaking terms of use to me that we share an understanding of the origin of TRUTH. Fritzie has not confirmed a solidified opinion but as host has contributed and guided the conversation accordingly. Esteban and now I know we cannot PROSELYTIZE the truth if we want to enjoy using TED. Fritzie will not proselytize the truth because he is duty bound as host. But WE all know the truth? RIGHT? (note i am pressing you to agree or disagree) Wether you agree or disagree; Is the truth not the same? That is the real question.

I have followed your reasoning from the beginning. We are clear that we miscommunicate and misunderstand each other based on our subjective understanding and interpretation of language. I notice that while you point out the differences in the way we express ourselves you seem to be playing the fence as to wether you agree or disagree to my "opinion" of universal truth and in turn my answer to this question. I understand why you have taken this position. In short I am impressed. You are hosting very well. I like the indirect approach. I am intrigued to know if you utilized this approach based on information you gathered about me from my responses, if you had my thought in mind when making this comment, or is this universal truth that you are sharing that coincidentally fits our banter. "So, for example, someone might believe she recognizes the absolute truth because,for example, God told her what's true, or right, and what's not.! So she is certain she knows. But on TED you are unlikely to hear someone say she knows the Truth because God told her and that those who deny that truth do so only because they have personal or moral flaws. That sort of explicit pushing of faith would be a violation of terms of use. Missionary sorts of activities are outside the bounds here." I would like to know if you believe WE (all humans) share an understanding of universal truth based on (laymans terms) "faith". I would like to know if WE (me and you) share the same understanding or "faith". I think this is the real question being proposed The fact that promoting (not stating) the truth would be "quote" agains terms of use adds to the perplexity of the question. Since right is truth (apparently subjectively) and forcing "subjective truth" upon someone is against terms of use then we are allowed to say "Truth" but not "truly" identify it as such. Meaning the information derived from TED will always be subjective to the individual deriving. All Life is subjective. is TRUTH?

This is arrogance at its finest. I do not use the word arrogance to offend. The lack of human humility is amazing. We are not at the top of the food chain. HOW DO YOU MEASURE POWER? physical power or strength is subjective to each individual. knowledge or sentient power (what you know) is subjective to each individual Humans are not the smartest and are not the strongest creatures alive. Just because we lack control and compassion does not put us at the top of the food chain. A LION is "at the top of its food chain". When was the last time you ate LION or Killer Whale for that matter. Both of these powerfully intelligent and physically dominant animals would destroy you in there own natural habitat. Thats if they even bothered to recognize your (if in there natural habitat) useless power. In fact killer whales have (in captivity) killed humans. They do not even eat the bodies. We do not even qualify as a fitting meal to some animals. LOL but you think we are at the top of the food chain.
