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.
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.
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.
Ghandi. It is the work of people that changes things and aspects of perception. Perceptions will remain the same if one does not point out the illogicality of it.
Hey, I got double-click.
I know I hate to be a hair-splitter. But all of the caste-system may not be that bad. It's inhuman to have kept up the outcasts, but what about the rest?
My form of logic will always be different from another, but the middle ground is in accepting it. People don't like to just accept things, for they feel they will be proven wrong by it. This is an example of clinging and desire, in one's own rightness.
Well, I have been playing game. But the thing is, I am a Brahman myself, so I got some race-factor. I know it's not universally acceptable, and all human beings under the sun are equal. But are they really?
Certain things only exist in philosophy. Or in the minds of people.
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.
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?

Thanks for the reply. "If thou two open a .."
Tell me, do you think some people are born to rulers?
If that is what they seek, but there will always be dissension.
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*.

What is the difference between logical thinking and creative thinking?Logical thinking and creative thinking are two different things. What do you think the difference is? Was Sherlock Holmes logical or creative while he solved mysteries? Would love to read your perspectives.
