Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

I got hungry.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Uh?  A joke?  But hmm, thinking more about that...  You didn't eat meat which certain meats are arguably more filling?  You could have also felt more hungry out of possibly lacking in certain nutrients your body was craving for?  If I keep thinking, I can probably come up with more...  Was it your intention to be so brief (like, possibly out of annoyance or something)?

It might sound a little hypocritical, but even though I do not like killing, I still eat meat and would like to try bugs too.  That more becomes a matter of survival, and in that sense, I guess I do kill in a much more rough life and death sense.  However, it is similar to when I said I'd never use self defense unless I had no other choice.  It is more a matter of survival, and strictly being a vegetarian or vegan you can much more easily miss out on the many nutrients you need to live, which in turn can end up killing me...faster.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

I went the way of Yoga. I fasted, I trained, I studied and I gave up lots of things and added others.

My weight dropped and although I felt better than ever before, I panicked when I looked in the mirror and saw a gaunt creature looking back.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Hmm, so you were depressing your body and didn't like the results?  Did you recover from it okay?

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Depends on what you mean by recover. The ingestion of the meat put bulk back on and improved my appearance. My reflexes slowed down, my awareness dropped off, reaction times got longer and I was generally more lethargic.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

So you overall felt worse?  Do you feel it was even worth the change in that case?

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

At the time I was motivated to do both things when I did them. Using hindsight I can say I was just too stupid to know what to do.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Was it really that arguably stupid though?  Doesn't seem like that to me.  Either way, does that mean that what you do now is entirely different then what you used to do?

Of course, who the heck wants to do the same thing for more than a couple of years.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Hmm, I guess that depends on what exactly your doing.  There are lots of things I've changed, and lots of things I haven't.  I don't know, I'd say that is a pretty debatable statement.  So if you change every few years, then that was only a short amount of time you were like that?

Hi;

Yea it was a couple of years, I do not remember exactly how long.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

I don't know, my changes are more based around my beliefs, but it has always been pretty similar.  I might not be the same way I was even a year ago as a whole, but I'm still fairly similar to how I was then.  Looking throughout more time though, I can easily notice greater change.  *sigh*

For one thing everybody ages that has to make some big changes system wide.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

Yes, change is inevitable, and everything changes.  It is only natural that as more time passes, it becomes more and more noticeable.  Can be happy for some changes, but it doesn't stop you from missing the past either...

I do not dwell too much on the past.

Re: Scientists, our benefactors?

I don't dwell on it, but it does come to my mind.  For example, I can never forget loved ones that have been lost, memories of things long past that bring so much nostalgia.  I can't help but stop and think about these things from time to time.  Though, I don't dwell there, just never forget and miss.  Anyway, I think I'm probably done for now, maybe be back later...

Hmm, yes, I got a little bit but had to run errands with my brother today.  Sorry about that, just got into one of those moments where you start missing the past...
