Thought of the day #1

(I saw this on a bumper-sticker) "Knowledge is power, power corrupts, so study hard and be evil."

Here's my thought upon that quote. Interestingly enough this is actually a situation in which "Ignorance is bliss" because this whole idea is based on a misquote. Power [doesn't just]
corrupt(s), absolute power corrupts absolutely." So they have it wrong and by diduction that would mean that God must be absolutely evil, or perhaps He's relinquished some of His "power" of control so as to avoid that fate... now that's an interesting question thought! Is it true? You decide.

Can anything we can discribe ever be considered "objective"? Once an object has been named and labled the condifying of it's essense makes the experiance of the object lost in it's connatative meaning.

What is love?

Can we see it in nature can we define and describe it? What are the catagories of love according to psycology? (Fatuous love, Consumant love, and Passionate love, ((seems like I'm missing one)) ). Who created these labels and are they accurate? Can we measure it? Can we compair it? Why should we try, or why shouldn't we?

You could live or die based on the way you think, (and act) learn how to think, (not what to think). Are thought and the mind purely biological or is there something more, as of yet unexplained involved (universal mind, a spiritual realm of thought, dreams,creative abstractions)? Prima facie would dictate that the biological causes are all that determine thought. Perhaps, more investigation of thought and opionion on the matter will lead us to a diffrent belief. The question that we should now begin to consider is: "What is the nature of thought?"
