Yeah, I know what I am and I know what I believe in and there lies the only answer. Why should I express it in words or in rational terms? Find out for yourself, "it is obvious" as Syd said. The problem is people trying to categorize the world that surrounds them. And that is natural up to a point. But some take it much too far and let their straitjacketed lives go down the same safe rails until they die in their narrow-minded fearsome little world of lists, ranks, labels and intellectual WASP verbal bullshit, ignoring 99% of human wisdom / world diversity / unknown abstractness. For these, infinity is but a word not a concept. Call me vague but all is and if it isn't then it is another corporate trick designed to escape fear of the Unknown, fear of Death (like globalisation).

Which links me to Shrimp's comments on funerals. Religions which lament death are afraid of it. Pagans celebrate it and so do many other cultures. It all goes down to fear in the end. Fear of yourself.
