Has anyone considered the thought that perhaps we would be better served to think of this "Light" and "Tunnel" in a more existential light? (pun certainly intended)
Perhaps, metaphorically, the "Light" is our subconcious congering of prosperity? With the "Tunnel" representing the arduous travels we must face as humans to reach the "Light" of Prosperity?
Or maybe someone just forgot to turn it off at the end of a long shift? (Steve...errr...the guy who is supposed to take care of the light)
The light could have GERN Flux in it, and it is 3.3% less likely to go out?
Perhaps the rats have mated with the dustmites, and their offspring with the cats, who in turn mated with the dogs, and then they drank from the well prior to boarding the elevator, and they evolved into some sort of super intelligent ratogite (no, that is the correct spelling of the new species) who have found a new way to create light using nothing more than a few paperclips, a button, some cinders and a few McGyver DVD's?
All you have to do is realize the truth, there is no light, then you will see that it is your mind turning off, and not the light... More from the Oracle after these messages from General Electric...:twisted:
After following this post, I have realized that it is time for me to take my Prozac, put on my strait jacket and go into a quiet room and listen to the voices!
The voices in my head keep telling me to go home and clean my guns. :flush1:
That's odd... The voices in my head tell me to get mine dirty...
Tank: What do you need?
Neo: Guns, lots of guns...
Clean guns shoot better.
Ever wonder why Neo needed ammunition in the Matrix, especially after he learned to manipulate his virtual environment? Ever wonder why he was fighting bare handed all the time when he could call on anything up to and including a tactical nuke? Ever wonder why EMP was a weapon aboard the ships but was not included in the final defenses of the underground city? Ever wonder why the cities of the future needed sewer lines big enough to drive spaceships through? There were some fatal flaws in those films.
Indeed there were, which is why I use the quotes in parody.
After a clean gun is fired, it is dirty. If we send a few rounds down this tunnel, do you think we could pick off this light? Perhaps we could borrow a Mark 44?
iis612 and Mountain man, I'm sure glad youall were the ones making those entries. I tried reading them and chewed up the inside of my mouth trying to say all them there werds. Then I shut my mouth, and all that pallavering crossed my eyes and scrambled my (brains???).
I'm thinking optically guided missile that homes in on the thermal signature of the lamp filament.
Otherwise, I'm thinking we pick a Marine who had his field latrine blown up while he was in it, and tell him the light is being held by the guy who did it. Then we turn him loose with a six-pack and a K-Bar.
Don't worry. it will pass...like gas. Meanwhile, read up on string theory and ballistics. Film at eleven.
Has anyone ordered a spectral analysis of this light?
I like the 6'er and the K-bar...
I think if we up the stakes... Say another 6'er after the light is out?:twisted:
Unfortunately, we have had a set back. I was working on your theory that the light might be a manifestation of human gestalt thinking; therefore, I set about visualizing darkness as the State of Prime Being.
I was actually making progress until the Catholic Church became concerned about the Threat of Encroaching Darkness Throughout The World, and set about visualizing a New Light To Guide And Envelope The World. This effort, led by none other than the Pope and his council of cardinals, apparently re-set the switch and the @#$%&* thing is back on again.
I am currently exploring plans to repeat the exercise after introducing Ambien in to the Vatican Holy Water. Stay tuned for further progress reports.
Now - how do you say "I'm here about a problem with the lights" in Latin?
Domino Nabisco, et Spiritu Santu 'GE"...?
Perhaps a knew direction is called for. Maybe we should focus less on the light, and more on the tunnel.
Perhaps the tunnel has now become an all encompassing void, that is being lit by the centuries of human sufferings, in-justices, tyrrany and oppression. And there is a "Focused Human Conciousness" effort to turn the negative into a positive, creating an illiminous effect.
Perhaps we should visualize the tunnel as being the alignment of possibility against the odds of probability...
I have a better idea - let's just mentally lengthen the tunnel until the light disappears completely. Either that, or step outside and look somewhere else. Why are we all standing around in this tunnel, anyway? :thumb:
Quite truthfully, I'm scared of that dark, dank, dreary, forlorn looking hole that goes thru the ground horizontally. I'm just standing there with the rest of you guys for protection. Besides, I looked outside and it's purt near nigh unto dark out there too.
I'm brave enough to know I ain't scared of no light. Not since it never gets any closer. Iffen it comes this way, don't get between me and the exit. Laugh all you want, but I'm serious about that last sentence. My shoes are 9 1/2, but make big tracks up your back.
The aforementioned light has always been stationary, but there's no telling if there is a cause for this, or if it may become mobile at any time. We must be on the watch for this possibility as it could wreak unprecedented havoc among the populace.....
The last time we looked, that light WAS the exit.
What scale is this tunnel,:cry: Has anyone actually seen it:neutral:?
If that there itty bitty pinpoint of light IS the exit, Then I got no problem. I would never have got that far away from it in the first place. Consequently, you fellers be standing by yourself, and I'm on the other side of it. That is, IF it is really, truly, by gosh honestly is the exit.
Alright now I went to see my shrink He told me the light and the tunnel are all a figment of my imagination. I told him I have a good imagination, shoot far man I am a model railroader. I gota have one to be a model railroader. I showed him some pics of my RR. He said I am in real trouble and he is going to have to make some house calls. He is coming over next Saturday evening when I am having an operating session.
I went to see a Freudian shrink. His explanation is, of course, sexually oriented and not repeatable in these hallowed premises. :mrgreen:
E-paw: We do not know the scale, since we are part of the experience and have no real outside reference to go by. We may be trapped inside a soda straw in some incredibly gigantic alternate universe, or inside a gigantic sewer pipe in a different one. All I can do is advise members not to suck or flush until we know for sure! sign1
I cannot believe I just said that...
