Re: General : Story Time

More question : If you were born in India at the time before the British came and after it, what would the differences be like? Like e.g. is it better or worse?
?

are you asking me to imagine being born twice? Once before them and once after?

Hmm, I have little faith that time existed before I was born. Also, I do not know if time really strictly existed between the intervals which I can remember.

Re: General : Story Time

If someone deduces the conclusion from what is evident in today's history, it is possible that he can enumerate a list of things that have changed in a good or a bad way. For example, we now have more poverty than before( which is generally considered bad).

However, placing the ovserver back in time is not the same thing. For example, We know that the british ruled India back then. But it might have been possible that the common man back then did not know that they are being ruled by someone else.

Also, according to many parapsychologists, a lot of memory is lost when you are reborn.

Hahhahhahahh, what the heck would a bunch of kabooblydooists know about it? Your ancestors and some mystery schools forgot more than they are likely to ever know.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: General : Story Time

Hi bobbym;

You cannot convince me that there was any time before my birth.

I can not convince you of many things. You can only convince yourself. I can say that the world was here before you were born.

Re: General : Story Time

Chooipian, let me ask you something else: have you ever heard your elders telling you that their childhood was much better than yours?

Re: General : Story Time

They were happier because they had less and were closer. It had nothing to do with who was in charge.

Re: General : Story Time

I understand what you're trying to say. I just don't get it on why we need an Empire. I mean like wouldn't the world still be the same without the British Empire? I mean like wouldn't India be as advanced as it would be today?

It did not disappear, perhaps we can call it the American empire or the UN empire. Same people, same methods, no difference.

If you do a little research, you will be seeing that the people who are giving you this advice today have been given the same advice by people elder to them.

What do you infer?

We don't need to be advanced as long as we can live happily and live peacefully as a whole.
