Semi metaphysical thought of the day while I wait for Phil to get here....


Im not saying im unique or that this thought is ORIGINAL but its just a perception I came to and Im sure many of you can relate.
I feel that your body is just a "car". Im surprised how many people think THEY ARE THEIR BODY, which is very different then what I feel. Once you manipulate your body you realize your body is just a machine for your "soul type thing" to drive around in and it puts you in a very different mind set. I think its why I can comprehend a tranny better someone off the street and why all the muscle dudes I know love a tranny because we all can relate, its like a CAR SHOW. Once you have consciously manipulated yourself through whatever means you choose you realize that the world is very different and that "you" does not necessarily mean the thing in the mirror. Yes its a symbiotic relationship but its two things going on as "production" its not just one "thing". Theyre very separate. Its like your "soul" drives around in a "car". I dunno, I feel like this can sometimes put me in a strange mind set. Its much easier to think you are just there, and thats all there is and then you die. I think that death though is the proof that what Im saying is true though, because when you "die" the body remains but the thing that controls it is gone, so therefore there are two things going on here because when youre dead the physical thing remains, its not like you die and both magically disappear, only one does...
I think it really explains why I loved Grace Jones and INSECTS and all the shit I did as a kid though, they were all these THINGS that sort of seemed "alien" and seemed to be like an entity within a WELL DESIGNED MACHINE or "shell" and thats sorta how I felt / feel on some level or WANTED to feel. I think It was especially attractive because as a kid your "shell" is still soft and gooey and UNHARDENED so that defense and design and control is very attractive. I didnt feel like I was one with everyone else. I felt like I was there, in this thing, along with a bunch of people who were actually perfectly fine and "one" with themselves , unquestioned and "normal" and there I was, observing and trying to figure out what the hell this thing I was in was, I still am...
Im finally having more fun wit it now though, and enjoying it. The "shell" is not just defensive anymore, in fact I have had to sort of crack out of it to embrace a new design...Ok now I sound CRAZY... Im all too spiritual and weird right now.. Im gonna quit but this is what happens when you take a caffeine pill and are waiting in the dark because the light bulbs have simultaneously burnt out and Im left with myself and my thoughts...

Dave...It's unfortunate. I believe many people view their bodies as camouflage....too busy worrying about their outward appearances and not working on developing their spirit. Afterall, the body is no more than a shell serving as a vehicle to move your spirit about....it's apparent that you've arrived.....great job....Joe

I totally get this! It must be a bummer to have the make/model you don't want!

But this is why I don't understand why some people don't take better care of themselves. They would take better care of their actual car then their body. I mean, why not be in top shape if you can be? Change what you have control of?
