tempnexus is still being judged by the masses

Default Who are you? What do you want? Where are you going?

Well you can either answer those 3 questions or tell where they are from?

Who are you?
"Is a dangerous question isn't it. There's never a good answer to it. I suppose that's the point."

"The universe began with a word. But which came first: the word or the thought behind the word? You can't create language without thought, and you can't conceive a thought without language, so which created the other, and thus created the universe?

"Between moments. When we are born, we are allocated a finite number
of seconds. Each tick of the clock slices off a piece of us. Tick
-- a possibility for joy is gone. Tock -- a careless word ends one
path and opens another. Tick tock tick tock -- always running out
of time. Yours is almost used up. You're between seconds lost in
the infinite possibilities between tick and tock. Tick your alive
and tock -- well it was a good life but a short one. Tick tock
tick tock tick tock ...

"Yes. Now. At first we were kept in balance by birth rate. Few of
us were ever born, less than a handful each year. Then I think the
universe decided, that to appreciate life for there to be change and
growth, life had to be short. So the generations that followed us
grew old, infirmed, then died. But those of us who were first went
on. We discovered the Vorlons and the shadows when they were infant
races and nurished them -- helped them and all the other races you
call the first ones. In time, most of them died. Or passed beyond
the rim to whatever lies in the darkness between the galaxies. We've
lived too long; seen too much. To live on as we have is to leave
behind joy and love and companionship because we know it to be
transitory; of the moment. We know it will turn to ash. Only those
whose lives are brief can imagine that love is eternal. You should
embrace that remarkable illusion. It may be the greatest gift your
race has ever received.

NOT FOLDING due to lack of $$$!! Folding costs you about $25 a month.

I liked Voltron when I was 4.
Treat the cause, not the symptom.™JW.ORG
2 Peter 3:3) For YOU know this first, that in the last days there will come ridiculers with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires 4) and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” 5) For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice [...]

8) However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9) Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.
Like 12Bass says, critical thinking and the scientific method are probably the best tools we have to avoid it. (bias)

However, this method relies on repeatable, falsifiable hypotheses and theories. Only an extremely small spectrum of time and space can be rendered into these, or at least a good approximation of such.

Babylon 5...Crusade actually.

I dunno, I prefer:
"What do you want" Seeing as how I'm a Firstone, and a lurker = I'm a Shadow. (Yes yes, geekdom abounds.)

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
1 Peter 2:9
