A Great Conversation

TheGiantSquid (@thegiantsquid) 10 years, 3 months ago

Imagine being able to join a conversation between any two people, living or deceased. Describe that conversation. Identify the people and topic and express what you were able to contribute and/or what you learned.

I personally would like to chat with Albert Einstein and Jesus.

what exactly are Mr. Einstein and Jesus talking about? science and religion usually don’t mix well and I’m interested to hear what the outcome might be.

Jesus is a close-minded fuck.

@sisyphus, That’s… oddly close-minded of you

@misssunbeam, How close-minded of you to judge what I said as close-minded.

I’m not going to debate about F├╝hrer Christ here.

Jim morrison is one but right now i cant think of another. If it was just Jim, I would like to just lie down and listen to him talk about anything and everything whilst smoking a joint and hopefully I wouldnt be too stupid to understand all of his ideas, thoughts and feelings. Being a girl though he would probably be an ass to me.

I’d want to talk with Hitler and Frederick Nietzsche. I know I may catch a lot of heat for HItler, but I mean think about it, to be able to get into the mind of one of the most important historical figures of the past 1000 years. By far I think Hitler would be the most interesting and intriguing person to talk to. Don’t get me wrong I’m not advocating or supporting him in any way, shape, or form, but you can’t deny his impact. And I really just love the works of Nietzsche, so that one is more personal.

I’d want to talk to Neal Cassady and Jack Kerouac. I recently just read On the Road for school and loved every second of Dean and Sal. I just want to soak up everything those guys had to say and tag along on all their adventures. I could dig it

Viktor Frankl and Alan Watts. I think the conversation between the two would be fascinating. Frankl survived the Holocaust with an inspiring view on life. Combine that with Alan Watts and his views…ohman.

@lldsgt, Well I do not think Jesus and Einstein would have a problem with the whole religion versus science thing. Its basically Church officials who are at odds with science, and during Jesus’s time they were also against his teachings. But I just feel like whatever they wanted to talk about would be mind-blowing and amazing to be a part of. Who would you pick by the way?

@sisyphus, well who would you pick?

@misssunbeam, haha well said.

@lozzjd, True the Lizard King would be interesting to talk to, I would have loved to have done acid with Morrison.

@sonofsaul, those are some interesting choices to say the least. Nietzsche would definitely be a blast to talk to. Hitler may be an interesting character but personally I’d hate to see what was going threw his head.

@galactimus, Jack Kerouac and Neil Cassady would be awesome.

@equanimity, Alan Watts is one of my favorite minds, listening to his lectures and reading his work has been life changing so very good choice. The other guy I am not too familiar with.

I’d become really mentally disturbed and have brilliant intelligent conversations with my different personalities, helping each other.

I would like to have a conversation with anyone in history as a child, young teenager then adult. Just to see the changes and what got them to where they are then. Perhaps Einstein or Karla Holmolka. Simply for the pleasures of studying them.

If i were to have a conversation with any two people, dead or alive, I would have to say Buddha and Aldous Huxley. Both have changed my views and opinions on my entire life and the way I live day-to-day.

Terence McKenna and Timothy Leary, on the use of psychedelics as a catalyst for awakening one’s spirituality, and on society as a whole.

@thegiantsquid, I’d have to say Alan Watts, Buddha, and some depressed 30-something lost in the world loser.
