  • Do you think death is a scarecrow, put in place to protect the corn?

    Best answer: It's an interesting paradox, as the Scarecrow is known to be both a totem of death and fear, but also holds the opposite symbolism of hope and prosperity. Scarecrows are meant to frighten away crows from the crops, which is why they are often eerie and frightening. They are pseudo-human creations, which... show more
    Best answer: It's an interesting paradox, as the Scarecrow is known to be both a totem of death and fear, but also holds the opposite symbolism of hope and prosperity.

    Scarecrows are meant to frighten away crows from the crops, which is why they are often eerie and frightening. They are pseudo-human creations, which puts them in the same category as dolls.

    They are symbols of death because they carry the reminder of the fear of starvation, if the crows eat the harvest. On the other hand, they are symbols of harvest and plenty as the corn will survive if no crows eats of it, thus the farmers and people live on.

    Perhaps, it's the way we symbolize these things, that gives me pause... personally, I wouldn't want a Scarecrow to be my conjuration or magical charm to be my protector as the ideal of this; seems freaky!! (lol, sorry, that is just how I sees this!!)... I'd rather view this from the hope and prosperity point of view and somehow the Scarecrow protecting me, seems shadowy. I like the ideal of Life for the farmers and people to continue on and the harvest of the fields to keep producing.
    ~~~~ I do see Death as an entity that propels us into various realities though!

  • What is important in life?

    Best answer: The answer to that is completely subjective. For me, it's sustaining the livability and ecosystems of Earth, pursuing, attaining, and inspiring wisdom, achieving interstellar travel, the wellbeing and happiness of my friends and loved ones, and creating something useful and/or beautiful.

    Best answer: Plotinus: "One Mind Soul"-Realization is key.
    Plato: Virtue reflects the Good; there are four increasingly-inclusive ways of knowing: Eikasia, Pistis, Dianoia, and Noesis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analogy_of...
    Kierkegaard: There are three concurrent spheres of human awareness: the Aesthetic/existential now, the reflective/philosophic, and the spiritual/religious. They co-influence and refine 5-sense data experience.
    Kant: There are two domains (magisteria), the phenomenal (5-sense data) and the Noumenal (that which is of God and of Spirit as such). There are several conditions guiding perception in the phenomenal, primarily causality, space, and time. The three most important questions in philosophy: Is God? May I Be Immortal? Is there ability to make choice?
    Blaise Pascal: "It is the heart which perceives God and not the reason. That is what faith is: God perceived by the heart, not the reason."
    Rene Descartes: "Je pense donc je suis" is a mode of affirming "(I Am) Mind, therefore (I Am) Life;" Descartes realized God's Idea or Image was the basis of Descartes' Being.
    Gautama Buddha: "Not this mortal mindedness, not this materialism."
    Bible: "He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? But to act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."

    Best answer: 1. I have lots of dear friends who are do not believe in gods but the atheists are the people who tell me how I should believe, and are thereby not among them.
    2. Christians and atheists ON THE WEB are proselytizers.
    3. Atheists have a higher rate of depression and suicide, so they would be problematic as friends. If you had a friend who clung into an irrational belief that was HARMING THEM, you would feel frustrated too.
    4. When an atheist says atheist they think they mean “any non-spiritualist” but if you are an agnostic, a free thinker or beyond labels spiritualist they mock you for not seeing the obvious that the unprovable (the non-existence of unseen things) as fact.
    5. Society without the church bulletin, church socials, without the ties that bind like-thinkers, without the ability to assume the moral assumptions of other members with some small degree of confidence.
    6. Research has found the brain has specific zones that are dedicated to the concepts of faith. More below...

    Best answer: We don't know. We all (most of us) go through a period of intensely wondering and thinking about that. The stark conclusion is that we don't know, and we're better off just putting that question down. Some people can't stand the vacuum of no answer, so they speculate and make one up. Be careful of those. And of anything else they tell you, because clearly they don't put a lot of value into differentiating between what they know and what they don't know - which is fine, nominally - but then they tell others "facts" that are not facts at all.
