  1. “As soon as something is represented it becomes an image of itself, semiotically richer but existentially impoverished, alienated, drawn out of itself and extenuated—a potential commodity.” — Hakim Bey
  2. I think I get both sides of the debate. Sort of. I've been a carer to close family several times. I had, and have, zero resentment for them because it was 100% not what they would've chosen for themselves or me had they ever had a choice at all. I don't regret what I did for them in the slightest, and in fact only wish I could've done more, and better. That said, man. I'm still not entirely back to being a whole person since the last time. To say that it was brutal and detrimental to me is a severe understatement. I did it for family, if not for them, for whom? If not me, who? There was
  3. Tell us about the family members who manipulated the doctor. What might they have told the doctor and why?
  4. Wth?? Lol Yeah people might want to provide meaningful answers based on OP's particular feelings on something. It's also entirely new to me that 6 people giving their opinion means the subject is closed for further discussion lol, but great job contributing to making the thread pointless to remain open.
  5. This isn't a rhetorical question (clarifying because for whatever reason I have yet to see a poster answer it)- What would you gain by being in touch with him?
  6. How did you just "fast forward" from what you assumed was a temporary injury, to a chronic, debilitating condition 12 years later? You got engaged to her and fathered a child despite having seen her condition isn't temporary, and now you complain of an ill person doing nothing all day and how it's affecting you. What exactly did you think? That she would "snap out of it"? That she would "drop" her illness seeing how hard her partner works and how her child needs her? That she would see the light of how terrible it is for her to just "will" herself into such a useless state? Really, I don't
  7. You've been introduced- and have seen her how many times?
  8. I have been thinking about you the other day, remembering that you too lost your parents at a young age. I relate to the question of how much death one can handle. I have buried my everyone, family and others. For me, what was helpful, in a weird way- but still helpful- was accepting it as part of the "meaning" in my life. I was there in the last moments for many of them, for some through the entire journey, so I felt like I was escorting them to the brink of life. Put that way, it's an honor. It shows a glimpse of reverence behind the loss, and for me, that makes the loss easier to in
  9. i would see a doctor to rule out hormonal causes.
  10. All the religions had very strong views about talking to the dead. And so did Mrs. Cake. They held that it was sinful. Mrs. Cake held that it was only common courtesy. — Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man
  11. “The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied … but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.” — John Berger
  12. “An image of thought called philosophy has been formed historically and it effectively stops people from thinking.” ― Gilles Deleuze, Dialogues II
  13. “It is always from the depths of its impotence that each power center draws its power, hence their extreme maliciousness, and vanity” ― Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia
  14. “How many people today live in a language that is not their own? Or no longer, or not yet, even know their own and know poorly the major language that they are forced to serve? This is the problem of immigrants, and especially of their children, the problem of minorities, the problem of a minor literature but also a problem for all of us: how to tear a minor literature away from its own language, allowing it to challenge the language and making it follow a sober revolutionary path? How to become a nomad and an immigrant and a gypsy in relation to one’s own language? Kafka answers: steal the ba
  15. Half of life is lost in charming others. The other half is lost in going through anxieties caused by others. Leave this play, you have played enough! -Rumi
