  1. I love you as the wind loves its own sweet sound. And as our friendly Earth loves to spin around. I love you as the moon loves each shining star. I love all that you will be and everything you are.

  2. Where is youuuuuuuuuuu?! :'(

  3. I have seen the moon in MagicDuel. [ooc]I must apologize for not reading the thread location before posting before. I assumed this was in offtopic and therefore about our Earthen Sun rather than that of the game world.[/ooc] Edit: And we don't have ooc tags here...
  4. As a followup to my previous post, I just recalled some additional information. Awii had said, "a sun is not necessary for what we might term as "life." Only a source of energy". This is not at all accurate. First, all known life forms are carbon based. Second, if it weren't for stars the universe would be filled with little else but hydrogen. What I really came back to say, however, is that the existence of carbon itself is an absolute wonder. Which quite possibly means that the existence of any elements heavier than carbon (which has an atomic number of only 6) is also miraculous.
  5. Form a philosophical perspective: I've mentioned the anthropic principle on these boards before, and this is an anthropic question. It's impossible (or illogical I guess) to ask "why the sun" because if it weren't for the sun you wouldn't be here to question why it's here. From a scientific/cosmological perspective: In order to get to the bottom of the "why the sun" question, you'd first need to question just about every aspect of physical law. The force of gravity, the weak and strong nuclear forces, electromagnetic force, the laws of thermodynamics, etc, etc. I once read an inter
  6. Like a lily among thorns is my Peace among the young women. How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes behind your veil are doves. Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from the hills of Golemus. Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone. Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon; your mouth is lovely. Your temples behind your veil are like the halves of a pomegranate. Your neck is like Wind's Sanctuary, built with courses of stone; on it hang a thousand shields, all of them shields
  7. Being Valentine's Day proper, I figured I'd weigh in again. I've a question for those of you who readily resign yourselves to being no more than a series of chemical reactions: To what extent do we control the reactions taking place? If the answer is, "none at all", then you forfeit all free will and concede to determination. What's more, there can be no meaningfully directed change in personality or opinion, and our behaviors and actions are entirely at the mercy of our every chemically induced emotion. If the answer is "some", then what limits this control and how is it applied?
  8. Being religious, I typically embrace debates like this. Science can't [b]prove[/b] anything, but the hurdle then becomes selecting a method or mechanic that can. Unfortunately, most science advocates will merely refer you to its track record and call it a day. Which is problematic for most debaters because the scientific method simply has a fantastic track record. Exhibited, of course, by the fact that we're no longer riding around on animals and murdering each other with sharp rocks. So, how many technological advances were born of religion or principles? It would appear that there a
  9. Valentines Day is coming up, so this seems seasonally appropriate. I've always believed that love is an action. This, of course, stands in stark contrast to the popular Western philosophy of subjectivism and modern culture on the whole. My belief is that "Love isn't in the falling, it's in the staying." Anyone can fall in love and then out of love. That's not what I'm talking about here. It seems to me that true love - unconditional and committed love - takes action and conscious decision. So, what do you believe? Is love an action? Do you choose to love and to remain committ

    black light

    Light is composed of physical particles known as photons. Photons exhibit a property known as duality, meaning that they behave both as a wave and as a particle under certain circumstances. Regardless though, light is a "physical" entity. "Dark" is more of an abstract...it's the opposite of light and electromagnetic radiation. It's the absence of photons. Plain and simple. Look into a theoretical concept known as a black body. Perhaps it may give you some more to ponder. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_body
  11. I've seen this before and there's a handful of things it could be - most of them virus or rootkit related. Could be a: - DNS issue, solved by entering new DNS servers manually in the NIC's tcp/ip settings. - Winsock issue. I've seen some registry hacks that are supposed to clean this up if the winsock related netsh commands don't work. Winsockfix is a program that is also supposed to fix winsock issues. - Proxy issue. This one's tricky to find/fix, but somehow the proxy settings could have been changed or hijacked. - Modem/Router/Firewall issue. Could be related to the proxy
  12. What is good? Without any context, I'll assume you mean morally good - to which I would say that any action is good if it does not interfere with or deny another's rights to life, liberty, and property. Unlike others in Western culture, I maintain that good is objective. What is your best physical attribute? My mind and therefore personality. What is your best non-physical attribute? Does such a thing exist? What do you value most? Logic What is 2 + 2? Five, though it really depends on which axiom(s) you accept. What do you know? My own limitations.
  13. Paganini is a fantastic composer and violinist. I've long been a fan of his works and particularly his 24 Caprices, which heavily influenced virtuoso guitarists such as Yngwie Malmsteen and his contemporaries.

Not exactly what you're talking about here with synesthesia, but also not so different. I've read that the skill can be
  14. Thanks to everyone for all of their well wishes. I look forward to the time when I can make myself more available and to once again enjoy the company of old friends in the fantastic world of MagicDuel. I keep fairly current on the forums, so, if I am needed, you know how to contact me.
  15. Happy Birthday old friend :)
