  1. Where do I begin and end? An interesting exercise I like to go through is to think about where I start and end. From a purely physical point of view, is my body a part of me? If I answer "yes", where does my body begin? What are my physical boundaries? I suppose it is obvious to some that my body has a torso, head, arms, legs etc. What about my hair and nails? They are part of my body and grow from my body, but what about after I have shed them? Are they still part of me then? What about the food I eat? Is it a part of me before I eat it? Is it a part of me while I am digesting it? What about my waste? Is it a part of me while I carry it inside my body? If so, is it still part of me after I have expelled it? Is my boundary defined as my skin edges? What about the warmth my body generates that surrounds me? Is that part of me? My breath? What about my senses? What are my senses? Are they also bound to the perception of the "external"? If I see and hear and taste and smell, are the sensations part of me? Does that extend to the source of the perception? I can see the Sun, where does the sun end and "me" begin? I can hear a long way into the distance, does the sound I perceive exist without me perceiving it? If not, does that make it part of me? What of my memories? What of others' memories of me? Are memories of me part of me? If I existed at all and memories are part of me, can I ever be non existent? When did I begin as a body? I was born, but I grew into a body before I was born. The parts that came together to create my body existed before I was created in my parents, and their parents before them... When does my body stop being part of me? When I die? If so, is my body like my hair and nails and waste? Part of me until I shed it? If so, is my body me at all if I can shed it and still exist? I don't have any answers.

    What is "me"?

    Appreciate your thoughtful reply meditator. What about the cases of people with multiple personality disorders I wonder? Or people suffering a schizophrenic fugue state? Or those who dementia or other degenerative brain disorders? I wonder where their "self" begins and ends. What happens at the end of life for someone in one of these states? I fear, due to genetics beyond my control, I am highly likely to experience fronto-temporal lobe dementia later in my life. These are all things I ponder.

    EGA: Call for Bulk Seed Donations - Seed Care Package

    I might just do a quick test germ to make sure they're at least 50% before I post them, still plenty of time to get them done before Nov.

    When caapi flowers? and is it self pollinating?

    It's not surprising, I dug one up two days ago and it had roots as thick as my thumb and bigger heading off in all directions for more than 6 feet radius, and they all had masses of fine fibrous roots hanging off them.

    Nice attempt at Trojan Horsing your anti vaxx bullshit into a completely unrelated thread. Contribute something worthwhile and vaguely on-topic or do us all a favour and just don't post anything at all.

    Quotes of the day.

    "Art alone makes life possible – this is how radically I should like to formulate it. I would say that without art man is inconceivable in physiological terms… I would say man does not consist only of chemical processes, but also of metaphysical occurrences. The provocateur of the chemical processes is located outside the world. Man is only truly alive when he realizes he is a creative, artistic being… Even the act of peeling a potato can be a work of art if it is a conscious act." Joseph Beuys

    When caapi flowers? and is it self pollinating?

    I reckon our latitude is just too low man, even if it's just by a few degrees. I've never seen one flower in Sydney, and Horus has the biggest oldest vine I've seen, he's an hour and a half north of me and his vine hasn't flowered in 15 or so years either.

    P. viridis legal restrictions

    I'd say the problem you're most likely to encounter is eBay deleting your listing, and possibly PayPal suspending your account. Not prosecution.

    P. viridis legal restrictions

    If they're alive, and you listed them for propagation purposes only, I can't see the problem. If they're dried, might be a problem. But that's not actual legal advice. Better reach out to T if you can. I suppose Leo can decide to make an example even if you're technically in the clear, and that can be an expensive burden to prove your innocence.
