    The body is all there is. It's all you have. Take care of life.

    Atheist preaching.
    Or explain how you know the "body" is all there is.

    Duly noted.
    This morning I punched an old lady in the face and stole her hand bag.
    Just taking care of all there is, namely my body.

    Sounds about right.

    Musika would rape and pillage the world if he weren't told not to. A believer can't even conceive of having an intrinsic moral compass.

    A rational person knows right and wrong intuitively, not because they were told how to behave.

    No advice is too good to ignore, right?

    Who's talking about belief in God?
    I am just talking about the belief that my body is all there is and I have to look after it.

    Geez, coming from a guy who just decides to pronounce his pearl of wisdom, "look after your body", just in case that was not intuitively available to everyone.

    Is it right to make those accusations?

    Yes, your body is all you have, but I still kinda believe that after you die, you will continue life in the form of someone else. And if you were to be teleported by disassembling your molecules and assembling them again in another place, the teleported person would not be you, it would be another person who thinks he's you, but he's not, while you will "merge" with a random living being somewhere in the universe who thinks that nothing happened because it still has it's own memory, and would continue on, and you will never understand that you had any kind of "previous" life, which you both kinda had and hadn't at the same time.

    Actually, no - you have your body and the whole universe which will likely continue to do something with your consciousness once your body dies, and not because of god or something, but because of the same laws that made your consciousness in the first place.

    Yup, you can call me crazy and ask me where I buy the weed, but I'm not telling, and not going further off topic.

    I'm 66.6 years old, the body is going to have to root hog or die on it's own.

    If highlighting the inherent stupidity of an idea somehow magically designates one as a rapist, I guess it's an unavoidable consequence in the minds of some people.

    Thank'e.

    If you are adverse to reading long-winded passages from others, just type "rape" with the "find in page" function so locate the context.

    I guess you could just go beat up some more elderly women↑.

    The exercise, as I understand it:

    If there's more to it, or it's just your thing, or whatever, that's well and fine, but, come on, we can only go on what you tell us, and if you can't keep up with yourself, well, okay, but that only means nothing you actually tell us is reliable.

    And everyone else, in turn, takes the note.

    We can speculate and offer advice, but at that point we're writing your lines for you. Like if you're trying to make a point and missing badly. Or not. Your thing for the word, "interracial"↗, for instance; if the point isn't the ostensible point, okay, but at eventually you need to come around and make the point instead of just going on with some alternative discussion only you know the boundaries of. You weren't necessarily without a point, it's just that the nearest thing to seemed to be a fine point for a different discussion.

    The same thing might be happening, here. But you won't tell us.

    You want to tell us you beat and robbed an elderly woman, okay. But if you're actually trying to make some other point, it would be helpful if you actually got around to making it. Otherwise it just seems like you're just going out of your way to be annoying.

    And everyone else, in turn, takes the note.

    So you don't see any connection between the addage of the OP and the "law of jungle"?

    Do you think the OP requires a few more clauses to bring us to a functional level of civilization?

    Why would I?

    Again: Why would I?

    (And, again, I can only go on what you tell me; three suggestions come to mind, but none are necessarily relevant: Presupposition; Thelema as logical consideration and projection of consequence in re presupposition; and doing some corporation's advertising for them in order to address and the simplicity of the topic post.)

    Ok let me ask the same question a different way.

    What enabled Dave to understand it straight off the bat (even if only for the sake of firing off a salvo of ad homs) and you not to?

    Initially I thought it might have been because you missed the context.

    Now, since you are up to your third or fourth expression of so-called bewilderment despite repeated redirections to the context, I suspect it's because you are being facetious.

    It would probably be more useful to try making sense.

    By this point I'm just curious if you're actually capable of saying anything useful. Or, as the question goes, are you ever not antisocial?

    Seriously: Connection 'twixt the topic post and the "law of the jungle"? Sounds fascinating, except for being complete excrement.

    And, seriously: A few more clauses to bring us to a functional level of civilization? As indicators go, that one's all flashing like a light intended to get attention.

    In either case: Why would I presuppose against civilization?

    Furthermore, really: What is so hard about answering a question? Once again, I can only go on what you tell me, and for whatever reason, you just have nothing to offer.

    I'm sure your body will be well looked after in a prison: 3 square meals (probably) and a cell-mate who wants to call you Gloria.
    Not exactly my idea of taking care of life, even my own.

    Alternatively, if everyone adhered to the sentiments of the OP it could, heaven forbid, lead to the Golden Rule.
    After all, what better way to look after your body than to be part of a society where we all look out for each other?
    Where we treat others as we would wish to be treated?
