A transient, horrible, fantastic dream,
Wherein is nothing yet all things do seem:
From which we're wakened by a friendly nudge
Of our bedfellow Death, and cry: "O fudge!"

2007 Update: Rusted eternity.

"To be or not to be?" asked he,
Answered the Danish ghosts' lobby:
"Living is without holiday,
To the dead being is more of a hobby."

Someone said "To be or not to be" to me once. I answered: "This is not a soliloquy! It is a dialogue between man and machine!"

existence: A former istence...It's all so much clearer to me now.

Existence: A condition or infliction of pressence not entirely understood and still often debated. Temporary in nature.

Existence: The brief moment between before-being and having been.

You said "bastards" in your return comment yeserday.
That would make for an interesting word of the day.
Things could get ugly.

In Philosophy, I learned that I exist, but that it may just be my mind that exists and everything else is made up by my mind. It was pure genius of me to create this blogging thing and to make up so many fascinating blog buddies. You can thank me for your very existence.

Existence: No exit.

Al, post and you will be. Dicto ergo sum?

Clever, my shakespearean android friend.

Poobah, you're approaching omniscience.

Death, too, apparently, Mutha.

Linear thinking is the virtue of those who can't hold their drinks, Neva.

Whatever happened to Karma?

Morgan, you're running with Neva today, I see. Who are these people arguing over existence? That actually is the question.

Jamie Dawn, would it have been too much to ask to give me a clean morning.

Brian, Haiku therefore I am.

TLP, are you channeling Sartre again? Is that some kind of Unitarian ritual?

EXISTENCE, n. And we wonder how come so many of us need blood pressure medication.

EXISTENCE n. that brief tension which separates life from death.

the cynicism is oozing nicely today :-)

G said...

I can't read this word without thinking of a certain teacher who chided the troublemakers with "you don't know you're in existence!" Actually, she was my sister's nun, Sister AnnMarie.

I've always aimed to at least appear that I knew I existed from that point onward.

Doug The Una said...

Amoeba, fatigo ergo sum? (I used an online translator)

Quilly, at least it's thin.

Kyahgirl, I'm going to optimistically see if your presence here means you've posted.

G, Sister Ann Marie was a real philosopher, wasn't she?

Ariel the Thief said...

Geez, Karma, your 6 words tell everything about existence, the world we live in and life in general. I'm stunned.

Ariel the Thief said...

Although you didn't do verifier, lazy chick.

Say what, Dawg? I datamine therefore I am?

You worry too much. I recommend a night out.

Aren't you glad passion is so wise?

Existence: What happens when one aggravates someone with whom they were in a personal relationship having strong emotional ties

Doug The Una said...

Ariel, way to make a figment work for her imagination.

Amoeba, going out is too much work.

Terry, I'll take your word for it.

Actonbell, I just saw the Australian Philosophy Club Drinking Song the other day. I'm glad Eric Idle wrote it.

Karma, that's the ticket. You've been verified.

I digest, therefore I am, Minka?

OE, I'm starting to suspect the O is for Omnipotent.

Sacrebleu, where is my comment?

It was not that great, something about Philosophy giving me a headache, but I comment therefore I am...therefore, in this case at least, I'm not.

These are great! I especially love that second one.
