Would you tell me who nicrap represents in your life?What does this post mean?Why won't you be upfront about other avatars?Please don't lie.
1) I AM NOT NICRAP! HE's a NG follower.2) It's encouragement to him to keep us his seemingly "absurdly futile" writing endeavors3) I AM4) I DON'Tps - He does read this blog occassionally
...and THIS is precisely WHY I worry about you. That you can't distinguish between the two of us worries me. He and I are philosophically MILES apart!
...and nothing illustrates THAT difference more than THIS post. I am NOT Trygaeus.
I do not wing about the world atop a dung beetle. Like Perseus, I ride upon Pegasus!
...sorry, Nicrap, but compared to Nietzsche and Plato, Sartre is a dung beetle.
I am well aware of the philosophical differences. Well aware.
Then why do you INSIST that he and I are the same person and that I'm lying to you about it?
I don't think that you are the same person. I think that you type the words, as a way to understand the person who nicrap is.Does that make sense to you?
If I know, or believe something, and am told otherwise, I have a choice. Go with me, or go with the other. What is better for me?You've made this thing so clear, so plain. I know that I'm not stupid. I have insight. I can't take half of what you say to be true, then negate it with the second half of what you say. MY thinking doesn't work that way.It seems a total abandonment of self. So, there's a fork in the road that calls for some accountability from someone.
Not exactly... you're not trying to imply that I'm a schizophrenic w/MPD, are you?
What is better for me?Go with yourself. It would be irrational to expect others to go with your conception though, especially if it's incorrect.
...and solving the paradox between seemingly conflicting information is the essence of understanding.
For example. You're familiar w/Zeno's paradoxes? To solve them, you must ackowledge the impossibility of "infinitely dividing" something and the "artifice" in the technique.
Of course, if you had access to my sitemeter, you would soon see that you, me and nicrap are the THREE visitors to this blog (my work IP being invisible). So here's the thing. Go to the Sitemeter and check out the IP's of visitors to this blog. My "work" IP doesn't show up on the list, but my "home" does. And my home is in Maryland, NOT India. I'm going to take the password off my sitemeter for a couple of days so that YOU can see it for yourself.
I'm sure that all this could be faked of course my a computer geek... but why would I go to the trouble?
The Sitemeter is no longer password protected. Click on the Sitemeter icon under "Who's on 1st" on the sidebar. Peruse the details, and if you're wondering who's who, do a reverse IP/DNS lookup on the URL's. You'll see that I post out of Maryland, YOU post out of Plano, TX and Nicrap visits from India.
The IP 96.244.77.# is my home.122.177.179.# is Nicrap.And you are rr.com
If you want to trace an IP to a location, use the search engine... you may have to "guess" the last number for those IP's that are assigned "dynamically"... but it will reveal the Intenet Service Provider's name and location.
22.214.171.124 resolves to "ABTS-North-Dynamic-015.179.177.122.airtelbroadband.in"Top Level Domain: "airtelbroadband.in".in means the nation is India.
...and ps - I'm still at work so the sitemeter isn't recording THIS IP.
I'm done with this.
But I will say that IP addresses don't matter to me. It seems of much more concern to you.Am I implying anything? No. But I'd like you just the same.
??The only thing I was trying to imply was that you were "impersonating" a fellow blogger, whom we both know. I honestly see nothing wrong with it.whatever, whatever. :P
I have NEVER impersonated Nicrap.
If you're angry, it's due to a misunderstanding.I don't know what's going on.
Whoa! I don't know if I ought to be flattered or dejected. But no matter.I think no point telling you, Jen, that FJ and I are two very different people. I think you should know it by now and you do.There is perhaps more to say, but suddenly I am overcome with some sort of paralysis of mind. Anyway... it is as it should be.
Okay. I see now.
Good. I'm glad we were able to clear the air a bit. Maybe now we can get back to having fun instead of constantly relapsing into some form of cheap melodrama.
