    I think society has pushed us to a place where a majority doesn’t even understand the concept of sexual fluidity. We have almost boomeranged back to a place where people can open their mind to it and over time, I think sexual fluidity will become more natural and common.

    Thanks for the reads, Reg. I’ve missed Sunday School lately.

    Ugh, student loans. They’re holding me back from my homesteading dream. If I remain in healthcare, same employer for the next 10 years (9, now) and make consecutive monthly payments…mine are forgiven.

    I enjoy Sara Teasdale. This is one of my favorites.

    I am not yours, not lost in you,
    Not lost, although I long to be
    Lost as a candle lit at noon,
    Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

    You love me, and I find you still
    A spirit beautiful and bright,
    Yet I am I, who long to be
    Lost as a light is lost in light.

    Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
    My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
    Swept by the tempest of your love,
    A taper in a rushing wind.

    Woah, @unseen. Although it is a common procedure,  stents are relatively serious business. Glad you are recovering and hope this is the last of your cardiac issues.

    Ah, caused my heart to ache.

    I feel guilty for the life I live sometimes. It’s not rich in wealth, but safety and comfort.

    Thank you, Reg. Sorry I missed church Sunday morning. 😁 The past several days have been a little hectic. Thoughts and prayers, guys? 😆😆

    I haven’t given up on on this conversation.  I am thinking about what each of you are saying. Also doing some research on free will and determinism.

    @unseen, Show me facts that all of the choices we make are random.

    I BELIEVE based on what I do know. I know that I chose to get up this morning, start laundry, make a cup of coffee, turn on adult swim and read the updates on AZ. Was that random? Because I laid here and debated what needed done and how I wanted to start my day.

    I know that there are more factors in how I chose to spend too my morning,  but I did consciously decide to do the things I did.

    I understand that we are basically a neural alchemy of past and present, but we can manipulate some outcomes. Or, in some cases, attempt to. I believe this.

    So, while you can choose, how you choose is beyond your conscious control.

    I don’t know about this statement. I feel that I DO consciously control most of the choices I make. Especially if I take time to reason.

    If an evil person does evil or a good person does good, there have to be reasons controlling those choices and making them inevitable.

    Yeah, I have to disagree with this…or maybe I’m not understanding what you  mean. There are definitely reasons that would make people “likely” make certain choices, but reasoning is a process and even in situations where something might be more likely,  I think the possibility is there to choose something  else.

    I had nothing to do with the opportunities and challenges presented to me. I had nothing to do with my basic nature, intelligence or instinctual reactions. 

    Right, but did you have the control change the way those opportunities and challenges affected you?

    *For the record, I feel as though I personally am a mixture of victim and master, BUT I wonder if my awareness has come from wisdom, age experience,  education?  All of the above, perhaps?

    I don’t think I’ve ever calculated the probability of healthy offspring in any situation that gave me a boner.

    Beauty is real, but it’s subjective. I don’t think there is a certain calculation that determines if something is beautiful. I mean, perhaps, but on an individual level I’d guess.
