    yeah jonathon i agree, they were human, but it’s just so hard to imagine them being something other than what history sees them as. you know? with the death of nelson mandela many commentators stated that he was the last of these idealized people who are nearly gods in the eyes of history. even if they weren’t superhuman, that’s how we imagine…[Read more]

    yeah, i know about buddha’s story. and no of course there is no story of buddha throwing a tantrum because that would fuck up the whole idea that he was enlightened and was therefore above anger and desire. but i am sure, there would have been a time, when buddha was just tired of people’s shit and went off deep in the jungle somewhere, sat…[Read more]

    such a strange thing to imagine. especially because history has turned them into gods. people with the superhuman ability to be rational. all the time.…[Read more]

    • i honestly can, it takes a tantrum sometimes before you can think clearly enough to realize why you through it, or what you need to do to solve an issue. Maybe at one point they through a superhuman temper tantrum

    • Briefly: In the story of Buddha he was raised as a prince. His father didn’t want him to be exposed to the sickness/sadness of the world so he had walls built for a palace to keep his son (Buddha) inside.
      Not sure if the story ever disclosed whether Buddha had temper tantrums, but, before, he hadn’t been exposed to the outside world, and it…[Read more]

    • History’s great minds were still human. Of course they had tantrums and irrational moments; they were human.

      They didn’t achieve or personify a perpetual superhuman rationality.

    • You got one downvote and you’re quitting? That’s not intolerance, that’s someone’s opinion.

      Slow down that double-time and relax.

    • Pay attention to the way you converse with your girl. You seem to have the tendency to jump to conclusions. See if you do that anywhere else and work on cutting that down where you find it.
