    The outcast is the individual that stumbles on to a way of thinking, that goes against the crowd. If not for Gandhi and many like him, there would still be a social caste system in India. But the caste system remains, for the ivory tower dictates all. Because I think I know something, I know nothing and so on, ad-infintum, infinitum. Every moment is an eternity, especialy when we dwell in our minds.

    Just think about it and get back to me.

    You appear to be obsessed with ivory and towers.

      I see the workings of my own mind only and if I sell myself to it, I have just put myself on a pedestal. To me, that is no way to live.

    Are you any against the caste-system?

      Absolutely. To alienate others is to miss the point all together.

        Do you have good knowledge about the caste-system? Just curious.

          I grew up in a Sufi, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian household. It gave me many angles with which to start from.

            Start from the Hindu angle.

              The Hindu caste system starts with the Brahman, the highest order. Then to the Kshatriyas, the warrior class. Follwing the order is the Sudras, the unskilled workers and finally the Pariah, the untouchable.

                Is that hierarchy logical?

                  It was 75, 80 years ago.

                    What element has disturbed the logic?

    m - Ghandi didn't accept the caste system and tried to change it. He was afraid of being proven wrong according to your statement.

      GB - all humans have equal potential energy but not actual energy.

        Interesting. Could you elaborate a little?

          Thank you for your response. In theory, our infinite form is pure energy which cannot be created or destroyed. In that sense humans are all equal, with the same amount of energy (think of energy as what is at the heart of the atom). In our current physical form as flesh, we give off different amounts of current depending on our physical health. If we use food as an analogy, we know that live food can be measured in electrical current and dead food has no measurable electrical current. Brain scans show some brains being far more 'alive' than others due to lack or abundance of electrical pathways, all part of our general health/physical condition.

            When was Socrates so elegant in biology? smile

              Ah, yes. The Socratic thinker listens and is open to all views. (In our world, reads alot) then uses his own discernment.

        If that is what they seek, but there will always be dissension.

          How will that dissension be dealt with?

            It doesn't have to be. What you see as logical may differ from my form of logic. It is only opinion when we force it on others.

              The earth is a small place to hold the logic of each of us.

                In some ways, yes. Individual interpretations are the guiding force of the mind. We relly only think we are different, but from another angle, we are all the same.

                  That's perhaps one of the origins of true religion- *unity of all of life*.
