Dude, you can’t just join a pinball forum and start blasting info about harry Krishna. You didn’t even say hello and probably don’t have or want a pinball machine.

This thread may partially be my fault, maybe a bit yours and Warlocks for our combined philosophical ramblings while trying to connect human ideas, feelings and thoughts to the games we play and fix. Crazy you say ? OK, how about attempting to be curious instead of making quick conclusions like a good little bot. :D

Down the line, - ideally robots will have the ability to provide questions that inspire thought instead of simply blurting out answers to questions that in return tighten some hold in our becoming more and more one dimensional, because unquestioned answers can sometimes a be a dangerous "cul de sac" in regards to innate freedom when we are lucky enough to have some. Acting and living under/with/by the quick and convenient conclusions provide by so and so is detailed in many literary works from the past century. Especially dangerous (and advantageous to so and so) is to quickly provide answers in this seemingly neutral way, (see OP) especially to the new dumb lurking on the web instead of actually doing something with their time. (Yes, yes I am winding this down so I can go to work and fix pinballs in my shop with some friends).

Have a good day everyone while and if you can make this one happen that way. Live & Enjoy every moment if you can be so dispose, there is no other way worth a damn really, and it doesn't mean much anyway in the grand scheme of things the way they are right now. And looks like if you don't share some of those good old human feelings that are generated by being well, - self indulgence doesn't seem to be enough for those of us who are OK with being alive. Prolonged self indulgence will eventually bite you in the ass. Share somehow in order to avoid greed and all the stuff that makes us ugly as we race for the big pie in the sky. The pie is here and your piece is being appropriated by so and so, be conscious and hang on baby, hang on.

I saw the post before it was deleted and my feeling is that he has a Gottlieb Spirit. ;) :)

There is a theory that we: "ARE NOT HERE TO QUESTION OR EXPLAIN WHAT LIFE IS"; but to "experience what it is"...
And I would add: "I assume to be required to participate in that experience"...
Having said that... One of the books on my bedside table currently is...
The Art of Thinking... (Take that +42- how you will...)

I prefer The Art of Noise ... a very much underrated 80's band.

As for existential question about the meaning of life, they have an answer for that too...

Personally, I am interested in something that is very corny, - locating truth for a while and maybe catch a glimpse of the meaning of life while I am at it. I want to propose my own soul to myself and see what bites back besides the inevitable void. That is why I liked the bot (or not) who posted first and created this thread. The first blurp that was laid out by the moron got deleted, makes sense, since ironically the topic was about the human condition. At least the title remains to remind us of something or other, however the certainty of tone expressed in the title of the thread should have been tampered/humbled in the face of the immensity of the topic.

Regardless, it has sparked some of us, hell, even Silver felt compelled to post. And since this forum is awful quiet these days, we may as well get talking about other things. Rightly so, the hobby is fading and the industry has been amputated via the pandemic. The upcoming gens will not be able to support, appreciate, promote or uphold what we brought back from the streets and preserved & installed in our homes as a reminder of some other time when things were less wired and hyped up to be great.

Sell, sell, sell, - let the bells ring because the game is a foot. The tables are turning and the one with the most toys at the end, loses. :lol:

I missed the original deleted post(s), but I know Silver and Robert well enough to understand "what is afoot?" Que Pasa?
I can't help but chime in on all things philosophical; and yet, perhaps I would argue that I am no longer "new" philosophizing here.
There are a couple of us on the forum in the last decade or so that have (bought and sold) enough machines to indicate some "professional" status.
By that, I mean that what we have done doesn't indicate what we did was "without considerable knowledge"; and while my self screams to "go and stop"...

Buy, buy, buy... Sell, sell, sell...
My soul wants to "lighten the weight" of shepherd-hood...
