    Here's a few.

    People who are born deaf.
    What do they sound like when they are thinking?
    Are they only able to create thought through images?


    Do blind people dream in colour?



    Share yours :agreed:

    I love trying to wrap my head around questions like this. Some answers are simple, yet some can really mind %*&^ you for hours.

    Without simply researching answers to questions like this.

    Try come up with some!

    What happens if you divide by Zero?

    Why is it *bad* if we cross the streams?

    Why does a buttered piece of bread always fall buttered side down?

    Why does a cat always land on it's feet?

    What would happen if you strapped a buttered piece of bread to the back of a cat and dropped it?

    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: and apologies to George Carlin.

    Seriously though, your questions are interesting. Maybe people who are born deaf, still have an inner voice in their heads for thinking. Maybe their ears just don't work, but that part of the brain is still present and possibly functional, but the physical ears or ear-drums don't...

    The blind people dreaming in color is interesting too, I guess that would depend on whether the brain is hard-wired with color information or if that comes only through direct perception. If it's the latter, then I guess they probably dream in black n' white, or possibly a series of dull images and rich sounds/smells/touch-sensations.

    One question I'd like answered is, how can I get Synesthesia? I want to be able to *see* sounds and hear colors. That to me would be the best.

    When is your first concious thought?

    Is evil a genetic trait?

    If a dog had vocal chords like humans, could it learn our language?

    If space is infinite, how do we know there wasn't more than one big bang?

    And a bit of EPICurus for you:

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?​
    Cats have a fluid inside their heads, near their ears, that acts like a spirit level. When the fluid isn't balanced, it send a messege to the cats brain telling it to right itself up.

    If your perception of the present is colored by the past, how much of your past is colored by your present perception of it?

    Mindfuck.

    My understanding was that cats land feet side down *mostly* and not when allowed around Jym :lol: because of their tails. It helped them balance themselves out mid-air. Cut off a cats tail and from what I've heard, they can't balance as well... but that might just be bullshit. The advanced Equilibrium stuff sounds plausible too though :yesway:

    As for you Vampire's questions, my feelings on God, if there is/was one is that he's BOTH good and evil. To me, it's like everywhere in nature. There's this *balance* between things. Night. Day. Dark. Light. Matter. Anti-Matter. Hot. Cold. etc. All these opposites exist and yet God is supposed to be *just* all good, all knowing, etc. He's outside the natural way of things.

    To me at least, that's why I think he/she would have to have BOTH traits. Good and Evil.

    the god being an all-benevolent person thing, I believe, there's this thing called Necessary evil, which is not necessarily something that opposes good.

    i never believed god was this "goody-goody rainboy-flowerchild" character.

    what i believed was that god was always RIGHT.

    now, this suddenly made things make a lot of sense.

    God did things because they're CORRECT to do, and does NOTHING because it's CORRECT to do.

    good and bad are just words anyway, because look at situations like war, on both sides, they're good ( to themselves) and evil ( to each other)

    that's how i have always thought,

    Which religion, if any, are right?

    That question has kept me up at night for quite awhile. Any of all the religions ever could have been right, or none of them at all.

    Yeah cats tails are a big part of it two, both organs work together.


    And if that is true, what is the point of hell? Surely hell and Lucifer are the symbols of evil, God being good? If God can be good and evil at the same time, does that mean that the devil can also be good? If so, just how good? And what is the point to worshipping either God if they are a balance between good and evil? And if God is in fact also evil, how can he judge us? What right has he to judge the flawed if he is imperfect himself?
