I would say it's a good idea to let off steam. The purpose of a thread can easily be derailed. It is natural for topics to branch off into related things. If a somehow related branch deserves its own thread, why not? If it's not big enough, and you want to play with derailing, go to your thread.
I don't know if I properly answered that. If one wishes to be loose with the definition of set, you can say the set of "all" sets contains itself. Since such a definition is not formal, one can expect to get into trouble.Does a set of all sets contain itself?
This very first sentence is significant and captures what I'm saying. One has to go outside to understand. One has to deal with what's not there. A great sentence for this poster which I will take as sincere.Most of my messages imply further research for full understanding.
I'm not disputing the truth of that. I remember a Spengler utube he posted once and dismissed it. Why? Because it was not up for discussion. It was just there. I got what he was driving at and wasn't interested. Personal choice. DMT? Not defined here. Why should I look it up?If you'd actually read Spengler, or looked into DMT, or looked into what I might be doing in relation to specific developmental paths I've discussed with you personally and privately, then you might get more out of the messages.
While the intention of this paragraph might say something, that something is not up for analysis. It seems "Pod'Lair is brought out from left field making it hard to put things together. This is the "Ask BAP" thread. He didn't ask me what I thought of Pod'Lair and had no intention to, IMO. If I had written this, I'd want to rewrite it. Note this seems be directed just to Cog with no link. This Pod'Lair statement is a statement I dismiss out of hand as the full causes may be far more complex.Or you might not. For example, the first post in the thread you posted to saying you'd 'never understand' might have explained my involvement with Pod'Lair, or the reverse. The static reduces when you tune into the right frequency.
What you're saying is many things at once. It's like a tree. You want me to follow all the branches? I could try but I would get only more branches from you. That would not be productive IMO though I could be wrong.If you're refusing to engage with what I'm saying then shut the fuck up about me, finally?
I was refusing to analyze some things you say. If you speak of an apple, I don't care to take that apart. Instead I say, "the apple tastes this or that way to me." IOW I'm looking at the whole. Just looking. Is that fair? If you speak of Pod'Lair, can I give my impressions rather than analyze it?If you're refusing to engage with what I'm saying then shut the fuck up about me, finally?
Great statement! I find you to be one of the most direct posters on this forum in communicating to me personally. As for "following you around", what do you mean? I rarely mention you, but I do talk to many others. Am I following THEM around? I find your words belie your actions. Once again, feel free to personally chase after me and tell me how wrong I am. I must be too dense to see it.I never asked you to follow me around, and was never interested in communicating to you personally.
That's fair. But first we'd have to agree on what our respective cognitive patterns are, discover if either of us is rigid about them and look for common communication.If what I'm saying requires effort or breaking your easy cognitive patterns, and you're not prepared to do so, why should I break what you suppose to be mine to engage with you?
I post a lot on many topics, so I forget what I said above. Allow me to reread it. Before I do, it would seem YOU are initiating this exchange. Perhaps you would like the final word. Don't know. What if I grant you the final word and I find loose threads hanging? ... like when you claim I am something I am not?I shouldn't, unless I initiate the exchanged. Which I never do, with you. You insist on initiating again and again. Your claim in the above post to not be interested beggars belief.
We can't have a conversation if you're going to exaggerate like that. Oh. I forgot. We speak different languages. You exaggerate. I try to refrain from that. What year? Which year? Old Lyra or new? I post to whatever Lyra you are at the present.If you'll remember, your current 'analysis' grew out of a year or so of obsession with me where you'd mention my name in every other post.
When I make a post like that, I'm testing the reality of it looking for refinement or correction or critical feedback. Looks like no one responded so I didn't get any. What am I to assume? No one wanted to comment?The claim of 'rationals' vs. 'intuitives' is massively overblown. I get on well with quite a lot of smart 'rationals', as far as the system goes. The primary factor here is that you're remarkably stupid about people, obsessed, and unable to accept that not everybody needs to make themselves immediately open to your form of life/discourse/understanding.
This question is best answered by an xSTx physicist. My guess is because the electrons themselves have a charge, they are affected by the magnetic charge. However I do not know what charge is or how it affects space. Whatever "charge" is, it seems to have the property of direction. If two entities are charged, they will line up in the same direction so that their unity will have the same direction. This is the same thing as saying opposite charges attract. I will ask Architect.In the Cathode Ray Tube Experiment, depending on the intensity of the electric and magnetic fields and their directions of polarity, the electrons will deflect in a particular direction.
Why is this? What is going on at the atomic level that causes this to happen?
What would happen if you found yourself suddenly floating in the vacuum of space?

Good Q. Let's ask an astro-cosmologist.What is your theory on the phenomenon of dark energy...or less sensationalized, why the universe is expanding due to redshift and star brightness suggesting it is so?
I thought one's body being liquid, solid and gas would freeze.
Ah, but due to a lack of atmosphere, there would be little heat transference occurring and so you would stay warm for quite a while. Also, as your body is a closed system, your blood would not boil either.
NASA reckon you'd remain conscious for about 10-15 seconds as there is no air however. So death is inevitable. ^^
Hmm. Interesting experiment. I would volunteer for science but wouldn't survive long enough to enjoy the outcome. If you would like to volunteer Dux, we could check you out. I will have to contact NASA but don't know if they will fund it.Death is always inevitable. The question is how many seconds will tick by before we fall to Death's cold scythe.
What if other universes outside our own are exerting ordinary gravitational forces on our own? That could account for dark, unseen energy. What's wrong with that? I can't believe that's right else someone else would have proposed that.
-∞ to +∞ means I'm open to anything without restrictions.BAP, what is the meaning of -∞ to +∞, your avatar Pi and your name?
I could ask you the same: What does "own8ge" mean?
What? Are you crazy? What's gotten into you BAP? Have you gone off the deep end? Why would you make such a stupid statement like that?Not only all the letters, but all eight functions. There is no such thing as a developed INTP and there is no such thing as an INTP because an INTP is not a complete person.
Thank you. No particular health issues ... unless you mean the time they had to put me back in that straight jacket after I managed to break out ....From AA ...
Didn't know that - congratulations. That certainly counts as an early retirement, I think you have some health issues, was it because of that? And what did you do before then?
Polaris these are very difficult questions to answer in public though I know the answers very well myself.BAP, I think you mentioned you are a mathematician? What kind of work did you do/are you still doing (?) related to this? Was this something you used in your computer-software work? Did you ever teach mathematics?
How much do you like/dislike mathematics, and if you do indeed have such a relationship to mathematics; why?
Why was the software job wrong for you?
What career path/other alternative would you have chosen if hindsight worked in a forward direction?
I don't know if these questions are a bit silly, but I am genuinely curious.

Perhaps I could summarize by saying as a teenager I was much like many teens on this board. What I became was a natural outcome of the limitations you will find due to the limitations of the INTP oriented person.
Oh....I feel a little saddened by this. It emphasises the notion that many people who seemingly have the 'dream job' and make good money may still not be content with the outcomes of their lives...by the time they have reached that point in their lives they may be tied into mortgages and family commitments.I am not a mathematician. A mathematician is one who does or has the potential to do creative mathematics on the forefront of mathematical knowledge. I never reached that level. I have the equivalent of a master's degree in math.
As a pre-teen I loved numbers and wanted to do anything related to them. They seemed to have a beauty ... something one could find dependable in an undependable world. What did I know? Nothing. I
-countinued-continued my math'l schooling until I could go no farther in grad school. When I left grad school (yes I taught calculus to freshman college students for a year) I was ready to take any job that would hire me. One cannot do a mathematical job of choice unless one has a Ph.D. in math. That's the way it is.
So I took a job in programming because I easily qualified ... got 100 percent in the tests they gave me. Not a problem. But my personality was so introverted I never got control of anything I was doing. Math had beauty. I was disappointed I was not going to be a great mathematician ... a childhood fantasy; programming I was passive to. I did that for many years and that was fine, but eventually the company ran out of large programming contracts. I was asked to join a computer sales office where I would be technical programming support to computer sales people. This job frightened me as rubbing up with extroverted sales people was not compatible with me, a supposed INTP. I was alone and got no advice from anyone and didn't know how to get it. So I continued the job, held onto it and thought about no alternatives. Fine. That's the way my life was going to be.
Yes, thank you. I find these very interesting.Your Q's are not silly because they are about life. It's too late for me to live my life over again, but I'm sure with 30 more I.Q. points I would have done fine with being a professor of math at some college. Not having those I.Q. points, I suppose I could have become a research psychologist of some kind if I had gotten guidance because I kind of understand it and like it. You probably can see some of this by what my interests on this Forum are.
Do these answers interest you? I've forgotten what your ambitions are.
I'll stop here.
I think internally for INTPs they must be the same. Technology has changed. The internet allows shy people to communicate with others more easily though not completely. I grew up with radio. I still remember those radio programs and their mystery let my imagination run. Don't know if that answers your Q.Are there any significant differences for INTPs growing up in this time compared to yours you could think of?
Not sure I get this Q. It would be cheating to tell myself about the future ... but you may not mean that.And the classic: if you could go back in time and tell yourself something, what would it be?
