Maybe whoever said ignorance is bliss really meant INNOCENCE is bliss. People long for childhood becasue they remember their innocence and the simplicity of everything. Also, isn't it possible that there is more than one bliss? ALSO also, maybe ignorance is bliss, and knowledge is more complex bliss? Zen masters who find bliss in meditation aren't ignorant, they are just at peace. Maybe innocence is just being at peace with everything.
PS: POSTING!!! People are posting!!! This gives me no end of joy. You guys rock!
PPS: Scott, post the URL for NationStates up here (I forgot it) so people can check it out.
PPPS: SHAGEE, YOU FAIL!!! Your un-involvement can be easily countered by you saying something that contributes to the conversation. Some people weren't around at the time, but a while ago we had this whole disscussion about what you can and cannot post up here and we came up with a few basic guidlines:
- Every post has to have something to do with the topic at hand.
- EVERY POST has to have something to do with the topic at hand.
That's pretty much it, other than basically don't be a dumbass. Stuff that doesn't involve the conversation should just go in a little section at the top or bottom of your post. Or whatever. It's flexible. Anyway, like I said, you rock, and keep the thoughts coming!
