Lab Rats Club

    I've said it before. And I shall say it again. We are all lab rats. If you know what I am talking about and wish to become a member, you may do so here.

    Our purpose  will be to discuss our labratdom and possibly figure a way out of this mess. However, our success in this endeavor is highly unlikely.

      How much is membership??

      1. paradigmsearch profile image88
        paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        The only requirement is one's commitment to finding an escape from our labratdom.

          The only way we can escape from the maze is to learn from our mistakes.

            Agreed, also a good map. (could perhaps be one and the same thing)

          We must!

      Mind boggling!! Can lab rats run their own experiments? I guess in this case we might just be doing that!

    I am without doubt a lab rat. I see the manipulation.

    1. paradigmsearch profile image88
      paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      It is so obvious to me that we are being periodically poked with sticks and observed as to our reactions...

      1. Hollie Thomas profile image59
        Hollie Thomasposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        I say, we develop a way to use the biggest stick we can muster. And, we must always react in a way that has not been anticipated.

          I do believe there was a non-you delay in your post showing up. Interesting.

          We are dealing with an omnipotent being, therefore we can forget countering with a bigger stick. As for unanticipated, not possible, He has been playing chess for around 5 billion years or whatever.

            Yes, but he's never been a pawn before.

              Non sequitur.

  3. paradigmsearch profile image88
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    First we must try to figure out the parameters of the experiment.

    1. Hollie Thomas profile image59
      Hollie Thomasposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      The experiment is chaos. IMHO

      1. paradigmsearch profile image88
        paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Then we are lost. We can only hope that the experimenter believes in pet rats. Thus, we must attempt to become one of those.

  4. paradigmsearch profile image88
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    The basic one is just to no doubt watch and see what happens.

  5. paradigmsearch profile image88
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    However, if the experimenter has a sense of thought or humor, individual rats may be given clemency.

  6. Hollie Thomas profile image59
    Hollie Thomasposted 5 years ago

    I doubt that. The rats need to rebel, tis the only way.

    1. paradigmsearch profile image88
      paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Rebellion is also useless. One must acknowledge superiority as to the reality construct.

      1. Hollie Thomas profile image59
        Hollie Thomasposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Disagree, this is a conditioned response.

        1. paradigmsearch profile image88
          paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Agreed, but a useless one.

    We are doomed to repeat an endless cycle of searching the maze for the "cheese".

      I like that.

    I keep trying to flag it. But laptop freezes.

    1. paradigmsearch profile image88
      paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      They are finally gone.

      Obviously the experimenter intervened.

        And was poked with big stick.

        "The Lab Rats have amicably disbanded." according to http://www.laboratoryrats.com/
        Does this mean dues have been subpended?

      How do scientists know lab rats are not messing around with the scientists mind?   They could be subtly guiding human development.  (Douglas Adams paraphrased)
