That phrase comes from Descartes. To me it sounds like kaboobly doo.

Why do you think it's kd (short for kaboobly doo)?

Pappym was real big on philosophy. Taught himself. We had many discussions - arguments around the dinner table. He never did convince me.

Well, it all depends on what you mean by "be".

It is boobly not beebly. Western thoughts on existence and philosophy always did leave me cold and if pappym did convince me of one thing, it was that the answers lied in the East.

I had been wandering why does Sarah Rebekah 16 post so small messages only?

Maybe she's a woman of few words.

using too few words, reminds me of Alokananda

Speaking of Alokananda, what happened to her? I do not see her around much.

Her computer isn't working since atleast January(But that isn't a reason for her not being in the forum)

She is busy for exams in the school from 11th onwards

(I should be too, because I have exams as well)

I shall henceforth represent her by the integer 65

65? Is it special in some way?

THANK YOU

Its a suggestion by Nky

65 is the ASCII ordinal for 'A', atleast thats what I like about it.

Nky is a smart guy who recommends representing concerned people through two-digit integers.

He asked me what integer I would like to assume. I answered 8128, and he refused as it was too big for his memory

Only concerned people? What about carefree people? Do they get one digit integers?
