Randomness [Sep. 27th, 2005|09:24 pm]
Peter Sheil
From a friend's journal on a completely random branch away from the main subject (about how new words were created from old ones) :-

Communication is brain sex.

Discuss.

:)
Peace

The comment didn't strike me as frivilous, just as looking at things from a different perspective.

My UNscientific thoughts on this are that if you equate communication with intimacy, it really does resemble brain 'sex'. Why else would we enjoy sitting on the back porch with our friends and drinking (tea, wine, coffee), gabbing for hours about life?

Ah, life is good.

I didn't take it as frivilous, although I am prepared to be so about most things in life!

I always think that life is far too important to be taken seriously. Oh and "sex" is such a small part of any true relationship anyway. If you are going to have a happy long-term relationship then you need to be able to talk about the important things of life - like how can a bee fly when it has been proved scientifically that it is too heavy to take off.

Not that I have any great knowledge of physics- but the bee thing IS a lot of fun to think about.

I always figured, either the scientists don't have enough data, or God's up in heaven having a side-splitting laugh on us.

The solution I prefer is that bees are only a projection into our dimensions of a pan-dimesional entity, and thus use energies in those other dimensions (or maybe their local dimensions' equivalent of a heliun ballon) to provide lift that is otherwise not obtainable in "our" dimensions.

Seems quite logical to me :)

Now why didn't *I* think of that? Now that you mention it, it seems quite obvious.
