Too Cool to Keep Undercover

Some comments deserve the light of day. This comment to "Walking on Water" from wisewoman, Kelley Bell, at The Daily Blog with Kelley Bell is one.

--------------------------

Kelley Bell said...

ahha, syncronicity.

"I wanted to ask everyone, What do you want from me? I can't walk on water.”

LOL

And over on my bloggy, I just posted a thing about atoms. They are not solid. Just energy and empty space.

So what is holding us all in place? What is solid?

If a chair is just atoms, which are just energy and empty space, like water, then why can one hold us while the other can not?

Quantum Physics teaches that energy is not a thing, but rather, just the probability of ideas.

Therefore, Ideas Create Reality.

and if all this is true, then why is it so unthinkable that someone who BELIEVES she can walk on water

actually can.

--------------------------

The logic and joy of the comment made me laugh when I read it. I told Kelley, and she was laughing too. We were laughing together. I had to share it. Some things are too cool to keep "undercover."

Well thanks for sharing.
Kelly sounds like a woman after my own heart :)
Going to check bloggy...

ME Strauss said...

Hi Melly,
Isn't that wonderful!
Do go check her. She's everything you expect.

Is that the same as faith can move mountains?

Eric Mutta said...

Aaah quantum physics eh? I've always been disturbed by the mysticism inherent in this field of physics.

Statements like "atoms are just energy and empty space" are particularly unnerving 'cause they don't tell me much. What is energy? What is space? Are there non-circular answers to these questions?

One amusing thing though, is how most non-religious scientists...hmmm, I'll be opening a can of worms here.

ME Strauss said...

Hi Cheryl,
I guess it is, but it sounds like science to me. :)

Hi Eric,
Nice to see you in the neighborhood!

Circle the wagons when talking in circles about circular logic and things will turn out as they were meant to be. :)

Liz, thank you so much for introducing me to Kelley. Hugs and kisses and a touch of "peace backlit by joy." :-)

ME Strauss said...

Tree,

How nice of you to stop by to say that. You're a special one, you are. And most welcome too. I like introducing people I like to people like, especially those I like as much as you two.

smiles,
Liz

Delightful, Liz and Kelly- That's my kind of logic. Deepak Chopra always says nothing is solid. Everything is 99.9% space. So that makes us all clouds, and clouds easily walk on water! Wanna go for a walk on a moonlit lake?

ME Strauss said...

Hey,
Great to see you!

Yeah I'd like a walk under the moon I've been working now nonstop for 16 hours.

smiles,
Liz

ME Strauss said...

Well, that's not really true. About an hour ago I started writing for me.

I think I'd rather be able to walk through items than walk on water. That would fit for more into the scope of us being all bundles of energy than the walking on water theory.

But here's my paradox for the day. If you're supposed to your clock back when it reaches 2 a.m. to 1 a.m., doesn't that mean when it reaches 2 a.m. again that you would need to reset it again? And wouldn't this have to continue forever and ever until the end of time?

ME Strauss said...

Hey Patrick!

You are a thinker through and through and I'm not thinking that this is one you believe not one you think about.

As far as the clock goes, I'm still confused from when I flew back from Australia to LA and go there an hour before I left--even though it was some 14 hours later. I'm still one day off on my one-a-day vitamins.

smiles,
Liz

I like this comment, and the post it refers to also. I like them alot. We can draw analogies about life in almost anything, we humans. They fit very well, mostly because almost all language is analogy.

Even the term "Surface Tension" is an analogy, isn't it? It's a description of chemical forces and reactions that go unseen by those of us without microscopes for eyes. It can also be used to describe so much else. There can be "surface tension" in familial relationships. This second form of analogy, while reminding us of the first, tells us so much more. It speaks of things unseen. Forces that we all understand and know, but don't talk about. Analogies help us to say alot, without speaking much.

Unlike what I've done here...HA!

ME Strauss said...

Hi Toadmaster,
There you go again saying something fabulous and then discounting. Don't you do that to my friend! I like what you say, even if you do not.

You put it so well that analogies are all around us. We even talk of "walking on air" when we're happy. :)

Smiles,
Liz

Liz...

Sorry if it sounded like I was discounting my thoughts.. I was only laughing at myself for being long winded, when I was, in fact, talking about how analogies help us to say things quicker, and with fewer words...

I'm funny about irony...it makes me laugh.

ME Strauss said...

Sorry I was teasing really, so I must be a little off. I do want you to take care of you for me. I like the way think. And you are quite charming. Thanks for coming back to say you were chuckling. I could use a good chuckle. I've been working VERY hard on engineering stuff.

How do I do it? I don't know, but if I figure it out I might stop. :)

smiles,
Liz
