    Great stuff man.. There's a lot here to get hold of. We all get shaped by our experiences of course, what we're exposed to and what gets us in the feels; there's a lot there I can jive with or have done at some point or other.
    I have no true answers just what I've gravitated to, what I like.

    Tao, Brahman, The Absolute; let's say that's the un-manifested - non material world. As you describe potential.
    Even our best cosmologists are telling us how something comes from nothing or should that be no-thing. Meh.
    Materialism or the physical world is the manifested.

    That is perhaps Dualism, but to be fair I do see myself as more of a Monist; "All is one" as I used to bandy around on MAP years ago!
    Words are poop!

    take care

    I thought I detected hints of panpsychism as well?

    I can see the appeal of monism, any distinctions between systems in the universe are, at some level, arbitrary.

    We're all stabbing in the dark, "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him." and all that!

    Ultimately, I find nihilistic materialism the most fulfilling paradigm to live under, as it affords me ultimate responsibility and freedom. I would much rather tailor my own bespoke inner worlds than take a religion or spiritual practice "off the rack".

    I return from fighting the forces of Darkness and Ignorance from the infernal cesspit that is Reddit.

    Battered. Worn. Incredulous at the how low man can descend...

    I decide wearily "you know what... I'll check out MAP. Some respite. Nice threads with intellectual rigour and open minds on the Arts Martial"

    Top thread:

    Why I Prefer Dating Women Who Are Martial Artists.

    A really crazy post that has over the months morphed into a cosmological argument that has no longer any connection with the original nepharious/False Pretence Poster.
    How is this thread still even going?

    You know that scene in the film the Thing with head spider thing?

    Link removed. So sorry, but it is a family friendly forum.

    Kill it!

    Kill it with fire!

    My reaction to seeing this thread was like the expletive ridden suprise at end of clip

    Just check to see if I've engaged in a thread!

    I think it would be a true statement, historically on MAP, to say any thread can take a hard left turn into another topic of conversation, and if I'm involved there's a 90% chance it has devolved from the OP to a discussion about Crisco.

    This is the point where we're now talking about #Crisco.

    MOD Team, can we ban @Rand86 for opening a can of worms. o_O:rolleyes:

    @Ero-Sennin, just no. Get back in your box. :D

    Hi everybody, this is my first post, so please bear with me if I screw it up.

    I'm against dating women in Martial Arts. I've only done it once and we've been together for over forty years.

    My advice - run!

    Welcome to RF, glad you're here.
    I just discovered this week I dated two woman who did martial arts, but it had little to do with martial arts. One was a ex-ballerina that had taken up Shaolin Long fist, the most graceful forms I have ever seen. The other I just found out earlier this week. Mrs Xue did some martial arts in China when she was younger and in school. So I guess I agree with you....;)
