Rose Garden

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

Judging by some of the posts on forums, it does appear to be possible to post whilst dead, or at least bereft of any sign of brain activity, an observation which might pose a problem for your theology.
Absent a state of insufficient brain activity, are you saying that when you are dead, you are dead?
Not at all. I am suggesting that some people are still capable of posting to forums even when they show no signs of any cerebral activity whatsoever.
Hmm! I am in Rune's camp on this one. How do I check for cerebral activity?

please, Rune - you need to explain this point...?
for how long must the breath stop before one is "just dead"?
this may not be a simple question - please consider it carefully?

Death is the absence of life (i.e., all vital functions have ceased). :(

Why the hell are you talking "shit".
...the relationship between "rose gardens + shit"...!


Green grass grows around the backyard shithouse,
And that is where the sweetest flowers bloom,
Now we are flowers growing in god's garden,
And that is why he spreads the shit around...


so please Rune...
we wait patiently for you to "spread more shit around"?
because we know the inevitable result...
the allchilean (patio) rose garden will only grow sweeter
:idea:
well - it seems to us that we have come FULL CIRCLE in this shitty thread...
and did g~j not already say that existence is circular, NOT linear!

now Rune - please pay attention to this...
shit comes around and goes around...
just like you will, dear Rune!

It all goes around, sweetheart, while you're not dead. Then -- it no longer goes around.

Speaking of "s", I understand back in the old days in Chile that it was actually used to get the fermentation going fiercely to make chicha. I am not shittin' you on that tidbit, ask around. :mrgreen:

dear Rune...
we have been meaning to ask...
what about the angels?
are they alive, or dead?

this begs a broader question we have (about metaphysics, of course...)
please - are there any phenomena which transcend our physical world?
do you think there is anything "out there" beyond the range of our senses?
is there anything that does not belong to the physical world we experience?

thanks, in advance, for your consideration of this matter

If there were anything "out there" beyond the range of our senses, then, by what means would you be sensing its presence?

but human senses, are narrowly constrained...
even so, they can (infrequently) extend from the "normal" to the paranormal"
this has been amply demonstrated over spans of history
perhaps we (g~j and Rune) are too narrowly bound in that regard...
but others may not be so bound?
does the human mind not have an infinite capacity?
do we use only a fraction of our capabilities...?
thus, could not some beings experience and report on the "paranormal"?
is everything explainable through the physical characteristics of the universe?
is newtonian physics all there is?
is einsteinian physics all there is?
we prefer the quantum view of the world...
doesn't the uncertainty principle leave room for things "beyond our senses"
death, dear Rune, is beyond our senses...
so how can you say (with certainty) that nothing exists after life?
this is indeed an enigma...
but through all of it - g~j prefer to see us as living in a multiverse...
in our next incarnations, we will explore at least one more
