Re: and then i thought on it some more

You're gonna have to explain that. I find that people who don't like pineapples usually don't understand them fully. Ditto on the postmodernism.

Re: and then i thought on it some more

What's to understand? They touch my taste buds, and I cringe, have an extremely unpleasant sensation in my mouth, and don't want to taste them anymore.

As for postmodernism, it leaves the very idea of a full understanding impossible, which is why I have little use for it. I have waded through vast amounts of gibberish to come to this conclusion. Feel free to attempt to persuade me otherwise (though this might not be the best forum).

While we may never agree on the delectable yumminess of pineapple, we do on pomo. I have plenty of use for postmodernism for the same reason you have little use for it.

Oh, I see. Okay. The meaningless nonsense I'm okay with. It's when the meaningless nonsense is "clever" or somesuch that I start wanting to knock people's hats off.

Re: and then i thought on it some more

I don't know what you mean by "meaningless nonsense" (and I will pause to wonder if this sentence is a logical impossibility).

I also have doubts as to the feasibility of full understanding. Of anything. But since everyone reads the text of the universe from a different perspective, I would say that if you interviewed everyone on the planet about everything, you could have a full understanding of everything. It might take a while though. I think Wikipedia is a more efficient means of doing the same thing even though it does select out people without computers.

I don't think so. At best you'd have a full understanding of how people perceive things. Missing would be (a full understanding of) what they're actually perceiving, and why they perceive it the way they do.

However in most cases it's probably possible to get a "good enough" understanding and I think Wikipedia might be great for that.

Re: and then i thought on it some more

Me too, but I'm in withdrawal. I apparently need to post better rants so people will get in 9058-comment discussions on my LJ.
