[2002'03'27'07'54'57] Stars' Pyre: Not like furry artwork does, apparently.
[2002'03'27'08'07'14] 002: No, I get as pissed over Sibe's actions as most furries, as tempting as it is to copy such things for free.

[2002'03'27'08'29'31] Stars' Pyre: I think Sibe's flames offended a lot more people than Sibe's sharing of media.
[2002'03'27'08'29'57] Stars' Pyre: People like to pidgeon hole others into convenient little packages, though.

Cognition Ignition

[2002'03'26'16'06'40] Starspyre AIM: What makes up reality is experience. While we ourselves are infinite, our consciousness seems limited in experience. There are many ways in which people have expanded their consciousness. Through the studying and modelling of cognition, of the mind's interaction with the world using statistical tools and surveying, of the mind's systemic processes with functional magnetic resounance imagers and similar tools and the mapping and emulation and ultimately synthesis of cognitive function with learning computer programs- computational cognition- through the study, as an inspirational basis, of the techniques used by innumerable human beings to expand their consciousness, I have charted out the skeleton of a programme which will enable each and every person, simply by focusing their love, their will, to express themselves creatively through the customization of the very means by which they interact with their experiences.

[2002'03'27'07'50'41] Diazynon: I am fortunate in that I'm already quite careful in how much of myself I show to you to not show anything I wouldn't want the world to know.
[2002'03'27'07'51'50] Starspyre AIM: So you hide from me your shame?
[2002'03'27'07'52'42] Diazynon: oh, not just that.

Chosen, Saved (http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=unknownj&itemid=709613)

Americans, meanwhile, expressed outrage at the decision, saying they had assumed they were God's chosen people. However, explained Archbishop Carey, "It only seems that way because so many people don't like you."

I would say such about any people considering themselves chosen . . . certainly that happens all'e time in the heroic journey.

C.S. Lewis, if I recall correctly, said and wrote that humans were the only animal that think they to be saved.

While I don't think we know that, I do think we can determine for ourselves what saving entails, what we would save ourselves from, and what we would save ourselves to do.

Teddy!!! Sugokukawaiiyo!!! I want a supertoy like Teddy - = ^ . ^ = -

Watching the A.I. special features DvD, with all the production documentation . . . Teddy is soooooooo cute!!! Does anyone know if there was any merchandising down, or what have you, such that I could find a bear like Teddy to hug? ^ ^ I love that bear - = o ^ . ^ o = -

Whatever you think might've happened to David if his story had continued, Teddy certainly would remain. The sound engineer who picked Jack Angel said that he had looked for someone with a voice both of wisdom, and of calm, with an even-ness of tone similar to Eeyore from The House At Pooh Corner.

One of the lessons Steven Spielburg said he hoped to show in A.I. was that it matters less whether a machine can think, or a machine can love, than that what we can gain and return in kind . . . what love we put into our interactions, not just with machines . . . with every aspect of our lives. I think that how people treat this bear reflects a lot about how they share their love, both with themselves, and by extension of that, with others. The only prejudging done of Teddy involves people thinking Teddy's not someone who you'd prejudge, who would only engage in kind acts, an entity which, some person, at least, somewhere, loves. This enables people to act freely around Teddy . . . we see qualities of people otherwise who we only briefly glimpse on screen, and additional facets of people we see on screen on the time that they do not necessarily express to others.
