Why doesn't they bring a cost with them?

What would the geodesic(s) be for the spinning ropes center?

Spinning and rotations.
Versus a 'uniform motion'
One costs, the other doesn't.

Everything follows geodesics, after the acceleration is done. To it you can add 'potential energy', which is the 'energy' something gains by getting acted (as well as acting) on by gravitation, a vase falling from your table for example gains 'energy' on its geodesic to the floor. Or you can turn it around and define it to the floor rushing upwards in its own geodesic, meeting the vase. But the 'energy' existing there isn't locally measurable, until the impact. Which, to me then, makes it a relation.

Life is weird, we all have experiences, some good, others questionable :)
Then again, life is for living. Yeah, no easy answer and no gurus.

Then again, isn't that what it means?
Being yourself?

I've had a really bad time with the idea of 'potential energy'. I prefer it to be measurable myself. Then again, it comes down to how you think of the universe, I suspect? You want a whole universe? A 'bubble' ? Welcome to potential energy, used by 'motion' (as well as gravity). You want something different? Then 'potential energy' is a really bad influence :)

There are always different ways to look at it, but with potential energy it becomes really difficult. Something happens at some position in a SpaceTime, creating a 'force'. What did it is 'potential energy'.

Tell me, what would be 'potential energy' in a SpaceTime without propagation?

Don't know about you, but I know that it isn't that big a question that you might think? A whole lot of people have wondered about 'motion', and as we call it now, 'propagation'. I'm just one of them. No easy answers, and no gurus. I write this not because of you, but because of me. I need to understand.

This is my place. and my time, don't know if it matters at all :)

Then again, isn't that just what life is?
not knowing, hoping, and trying.
In the end, what matters?

Yeah, love, honor and honesty.
Understanding, and forgiving.

One has to differ between forgiving and what is good or bad.
When it comes to forgiving it's about history.

Without it we only have an eye for an eye. And no future.
It's like us stopping throwing cats in the fire to get a good laugh.
Some lessons are harder to assimilate, but we will do them, each one of us that thinks there is a future.

Doesn't say that you need to kiss ass. Forgiving is letting go, doesn't state backing down

Been out with some friends :) And I'm confused. Then again, doesn't take much to make me confused, does it? One oft hose guys is what I think of as an artist, an artist of life. I like them both, one is hard, but thinking, the other is also hard but in another way, he's not as sure on what life means-, but he can make it laugh. Then I go home and try to make sense of it all. It's not about the money, it's about living.

I don't really like guys and and gals to be the same. I like each one of them to bring something unique to a relationship. I like to open the door for a girl, and I also like my dreams. Wtf is life, without dreams?

As usual, my literation sux.

This one has been on my mind for some while. Happened to look at a seminar of sorts, in where people are set to answer, what I call, impossible questions. As for example, 'to kill one innocent to save three others'. It's presented as being logic, and in a rather inhuman way I suppose it is. I then started to wonder why those kinds of seminars was popular, and what kind of people that would have a use for them? Normally it won't help you, as far as I know,  not in a instant reaction, because that is about 'now' and about your 'core' of beliefs and instinctive responses. But there exist a group of of people that really would like to believe that this kind of seminars can change you, it's the same type of groups that invented the term 'collateral damage'. As a practice in logic it's rather limited, as it seems to me. Only by accepting its limits, its borders of thought, will you find it work, and as I said. It's not really for what you will do as it happens. But it gives those making you accept it a further excuse.

One might consider this as not being important, but presented as a logic and presented to, as well as acclaimed by, young people it sets a precedency towards a way of thinking, and so acting. The real point of a logic as this is in the way it can be used, and that is solely strategic. It's a view that is shared by those we call terrorists, as well as by contemporary military logic. The way of 'collateral damage', and its uses. The 'trick' of it lies in making one believe that going to those seminars, accepting the strictures of logic involved, then trying to choose, will change you. It won't as it happens, but for a strategist it might, before a course chosen, and also in the way you, and others, react after. And as I said, firstly I would call it a excuse, for inhuman behavior. Although, that naturally depends on what you think the word 'human' stands for?

What I think :)
Is that those believing in those visions find a need for security, their own, and yours. And possibly also that they consider themselves leaders. I don't need them though, do you?

Everything isn't alright, but I recon you know that. So do I, and as always, when I think of it I think of my kids. What about you?

Yeah, life has a ability to make us forget, in ruder terms to make us 'f* up'. None of us planned for it, it's just one of those things. So, thus that exclude you from living?  F' that,  be a human being :)

In simple terms, some people would love you to just follow orders. As you do it you accept that others know better than you, understand life better than you, probably get better kids and better homes too :) Can I sell that to you? I can, can't I? Otherwise, you're 'asocial', isn't you?

You live, and then you die, buying BS.

Modern society is a mystery to me. It mostly reminds me of a anthill. It's not individual choice that creates it, it more seems as some law. And, to me, the end-result should be you, standing by yourself. Or you can do it now and hasten the process.
