    Jokes lose their appeal when they need to be explained.😳

    Well ladies and gentlemen, let us show the way. None of the usual GF BS. Coquette, pick a subject and let us talk about it.

    Oh dear, this sounds so intellectual, but so very intellectual, that I cannot reach, please help:

    what is the contemplative substance? things like Budah, stones, quartz, are not substances, therefore, not part of subject.

    Maybe water, running over rocks.. H2O.. I could contemplate that for ever... 🙂

    Oh I see now what you mean.. bit slow here .. sorrey.. quite naughty though and anti tea-parties if I understand correctly, but am 100% for it, can't live without and my cat Tilly would never survive without.

    I love gardening. 😉

    Yep but I'll explain it anyway because it's so flippin' clever.

    The conditions are ideal, I said.

    Idealism (from root "Ideal" / "idea" ) is the group of philosophies which assert that reality, or reality as we can know it is fundamentally mental, mentally constructed, or otherwise immaterial. " wikipedia

    So the "substance" is ideas, and Coquette has to take one article of clothing off now. As they are not substantial anyway, might as well.

    Is the appeal back?

    Being and Nothingness, the intentionality of our essential drive for meaning, our contemplation of the infinite, chi v tau, yin & yang, let me suggest our question. . . Why?

    "Our essential drive for meaning" is basically due to us humans having an ego, and this famous "ego" generates the need to have explanations in order to cope with the fear of the unknown.
