    Post Who Owns Your Body

    This is my first poll ever. I've made it a poll because few can express themselves in deep philosophical terms. Yet, everyone can still have an opinion. I will comment further later.

    I voted "other". The Hell's Angels own my body. :-(

    just kidding! hehehehehe


    I really voted "I own my body". Though I don't really look at my body of being a thing of "ownership". I never real think in terms of "It's my body"...it's never concerned me. I just do what I will with it anyway. That includes covering it in tattoos or filling it with alcohol, if I so choose. No one else has such control over it.

    My body is a vessel used to manifest the need for my mind to absorb the world around it through actions that it can't complete on it's own. :-|
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    From the day you are born, your body is slowly being taken away from you, by the Being who really owns it.

    Why is the concept of ownership so important here?
    I own my body, in the sense that I control it, yet there are billions of other equasions that influence what I do, and what my body does.

    Finally, we all die, maybe we go to 'the great owner in the sky', maybe we return to the great unity with more wisdom, maybe we just disintegrate into the mollecules that nurture the ground, in the great circle of life ( Lion King, Disney co. ).

    Hakuna matata :-)

    We don't see the entire spectrum of our world, we don't see much more past what we directly encounter, let alone such 'higher' concepts.

    If we respect our bodies, we get more fun out of them.
    When our bodies don't work right, we don't have fun.

    I guess our bodies have a big ammount of shares in this partnership :-)

    Why is anything important?

    If we respect our bodies, we get more fun out of them.
    When our bodies don't work right, we don't have fun.
    And it's all about having fun.

    so then answer me, is it not about having fun? :-D

    I don't know the answers, I was just asking some questions.
    Do you think it'd be a safe bet that the one who knows answers to these questions spends time on a discussion board?

    Well, I do not want to sound unintelligent or anything but I would say my brain and my heart. I myself own my own body. I cannot think deeply into this one unfortunately.

    Then why did they give it to me if they are going to take it back? What a gift!

    And it's all about having fun
    Well, yeah! I personally have always thought that this concept was obvious :-P
    But, unfortunately, we have to do things that aren't fun -like work, etc. Why do we do them, though? So that we can live -have food, a home, etc. Why do we want to live? For the things that we enjoy in life! If someone seriously and truly gets no enjoyment out of life they usually choose to end it. Who (in their right mind) lives to work and do things that bring them no fulfillment (ie. fun)?

    I'd also add that our bodies are built in such a way that the things we once did to survive could count as fun too.

    In the old times, if you wanted to survive( feed your body) you had to use your body for hunting, which is today considered a fun sport. :-)

    Even today, after centuries of the society that does the shaping and conditioning ( Instead of nature ), humans still find most enjoyment in physical activities and socializing.

    I don't want to make anyone appear unintelligent. Few people reach the philosphical level, the highest level of understand. But if you post something, I will question it so as to come to a mutual agreement on any particular subject. I'm capable of thinking at the philosophical level but rarely do so anymore. It takes too much time to think things through thoroughly.

    Existence is not about having fun. Though some things may be enjoyable and others not, neither are a meaning of existing. There is a saying, Vanessa, find work that you thoroughly enjoy, and you'll never work a day in your life. Apparently, some people who do have the answers to difficult question, do spend time on some discussion boards. :-)
