Just some thoughts [Aug. 25th, 2008|03:49 pm]

I was thinking to myself last week while I was out walking if focusing on yourself and making yourself happy is selfish. I decided that it can or can't be. If you make yourself happy at the expense of others than obviously that seems selfish, but the way I see it in my case where I'm trying to make myself happy by making positive changes in my life I don't see it as selfish. I hope that my positive outlook rubs off on the people around me, and I find that the happier I become mixed with my new sense of optimism makes me more in the mood to be around people, to do things with or for them, and even if it's as simple as just keeping someone company or listening to them talk about something. So I think that being optimistic, thinking and acting positively, working on your self image - those kinds of things that could make someone happy - ultimately effects everyone around them in a good way so I don't find it selfish. Of course there is an exception to everything and I suppose these things could somehow lead to someone becoming arrogant or something along those lines, which then could negatively effect people around them, but does that really constitute the person as someone who was selfish looking after themselves to find happiness. I don't think so. I think it's more of an unfortunate negative outcome. Anyhow, just a couple thoughts on that.

Are you unoriginal, stealing ideas, or whatever if you do this:

Hear a friend/celebrity/book/philosophy mention a specific idea, vaguely,
go home pondering this idea, expanding on it in your mind and touching on it more thoroughly,
go to a group of friends and simply discuss this idea as your own.

?

If someone tells me "I really like *insert song here*" and I listen to the song, and then not only decide I like it but come up with an incredibly elaborate reason as to why I like it, and then turn to someone else and discuss that I like this song, I love it, and this is why... Must I cite my music source?

Just a thought.
CLEARLY. As is everything else.

World Britain [Aug. 21st, 2008|11:20 pm]

So England hopped in their boats and set sail exploring the world looking for places to set up colonies and whatnot. Two places that were colonized by Great Britain were what is now Canada and the United States as most of us all know. I'm wondering to myself how would things be today if there was no American Revolution, if Canada remained completely dependent on Great Britain, if the power was maintained and control never lost? I wanna say that the thought of Great Britain being THE world power, having all of North America in addition to their little island would be kind of interesting. Maybe. I don't know how it would have turned out obviously, but the way I imagine it is taking the force and power of England and the US and combining them into one massive super power that just dominates. Of course it probably wouldn't have worked out that way would it? I don't think it would work that way for two reasons, I think our initial rebellion against England put into motion the way we have become. Without that spark and fight for our own independence, I think the people in this country would have evolved much differently. The other reason I don't see it happening is if England kept the power and had that much control what would have stopped them from wanting to continue to expand, and if they had that combined power like in my little imagination what would stop them? They could rule the entire planet. World Britain! I don't think the rest of the world would have stood for it long though. I would like to think everyone would collectively gather to quell World Britain's quest to rule the world. Today though I think that sort of thing would end in a world destroying war. I don't know, I wonder sometimes if I think it's possible for one nation or power to take control of the entire world, and if so how long would it last? I tend to think it's not possible. This whole post feels very unorganized and not well thought out to me. I'm not pleased with it, but I'm going to post it anyway.

Dreams [Aug. 21st, 2008|08:52 pm]

The general consensus on dreams (that I've come across) is this:

Dreams are basically our subconscious, pushing their way to the thought processes in our conscious minds. Either to express something we deeply fear, or something we greatly desire. There's also speculation that they are there to give us insight, be it to the future or something that had been left unresolved in the past.

I could take a decent handful of my remembered dreams and tie them in with the subconscious theory. I don't recall ever having a dream that turned out to be some incredible premonition, but I guess it could happen.

I'm not sure how I feel about dreams. I know they can be affected by events that went on during the day, in your mind before you fell asleep, the food you've eaten, movies you watch, and probably subconscious thoughts. I personally have a little trouble putting much faith in dream dictionaries, though. If you take into consideration the vast difference in personalities, brains, and the way different people think - it's hard to imagine that every person's mind is able to be defined and laid out that way.

So, I'd like input. Tell me about your dreams, how you feel about their role in our conscious lives, and what you think about people putting a box around the possible meanings.

Introduction [Aug. 21st, 2008|03:35 pm]
Wise Tits

hahahasyyke
Hey everyone, I am your friendly maintainer! :D

Just like anyone else, I'm going to have an introduction/application post.

Name: Jen
Age: 22
Why I want to join: Uh, seeing as how I made the community to begin with, and it was an idea a friend and I came up with, I have every reason to want to be a part of it! I just want to have people to discuss my thoughts, ideas, and opinions with. I want to have in depth conversations with people who want to do the same thing.
Why I would be a good member: I probably won't. HA! Just kidding. I think I will be a good member because I am often bored and this is what I do - I write my ideas and thoughts and opinions. It'll be nice to have input in response to them, for a change!

So, welcome everyone.

And I'll be doing things to enhance this community over the next week or so, so look out for update posts asking for opinions on the community changes and such.
