A balance of consciousness: Emotion has Reason to Exist

As a rebuttal to the misdirected thinking of Vulcan ideology, I give the following statement:
Emotion has Reason to Exist.

It's not an exclusive or. And especially not one better than the other. Emotion exists in response to environmental factors experienced by each individual. To dismiss emotion in it's entirety, is to dismiss the experience which produced it. Thus, an emphasis on reason to the vacancy of emotion is fallacy.

Ironically, I was thinking last night...

Where is the horizon of your imagination?

Posted 07-06-2009 at 12:36 AM by Shingoshi

Do you dream at arms length?
Do you dream only as far as you can throw?
Or do your dreams extend beyond the realm of boundaries?

Given that likely all of us here are deeply involved to some extent in the development of technology, to what extent do you advance with the technology around you? Are you simply maintaining a state of parity, just trying to keep up with what's in front of you? How many would think of you as a visionary? How many times have you predicted something...

This is an incontrovertible fact!

This is an incontrovertible fact!
The principle:
You will never save more by acquiring less than you can afford.

Context:
Every transaction is an expense of time and energy.
The expenditure of all energy is a function of time.
Energy is time. Once you've spent it, you don't get it back
You can steal from a person, but not from time.
In every situation we must ask ourselves, "are we committed to succeed, or committed to fail.

Validation is determined by function...

The question of concepts often arises, "what makes this thing valid? And in answering that question, we are most often divided into two distinct groups of reasoning. And I'm guessing by how we individually choose to answer that question, our reason for asking is revealed as much if not more than our desire to have the answer.

These are the two distinct positions of reasoning which will likely never find commonality:
1.) Validity derived from Conformance
2.) Validity...

How much do you engage in imagination about what Linux is fully capable of? Is Linux simply something that you use, and don't give much else thought to it? Have you ever wondered what a society driven by Linux or open-source would look like? Are you limited to thinking the other guys will always rule the world?

Are you content to be on the fringe of society, rather being a significant component of it? Do you marginalize Linux and open-source in general by thinking what can't be achieved,...
