This is a beautiful and wonderful offering from Mr. Cohen. If you read this, sir, thank you.

And thanks also to Doron for the explanation as I wouldn't have understood otherwise.

I wasn't thinking these conflicts of late had anything to do with me, but I am as much a part of the unit as anyone. In that light, they did have something to do with me, and I did nothing to soothe. This gesture tells me that you take it personally.

Red Poppy I am bemused as you. What the hell has been going on when my computer is turned off. Does this forum turn into a war zone and when I log back on it is all well again.

Phew!! for one minute I thought he said 'this unity' :shock:
I'll just keep walking by, whistling 'one of us cannot be wrong'...that'll keep me out of mischief :D

Leonard Cohen and Leonard Nimoy.

Post by st theresa » Wed May 09, 2007 2:37 am

Thanks Leonard
and also those who recognized the Vulcan salute. Oddly enough, I was also a Leonard Nimoy fan back in the day. An interesting observation: I once attended a conference on Asperger's syndrome, in which the presenter commented that her brother who had Asperger's (which is a high functioning form of autism) was a huge fan of Leonard Nimoy (of Star trek vulcan fame)
She noted that his admiration for Spock, stemmed from his lack of emotional response to situations, which is also a trait of Asperger's syndrome. However she noted that far from being unfeeling, people who have Asperger's experience extreme emotional responses which cause problems for them functioning in the world. They learn to hide their feelings and compensate by using language to deal with the world. I am not familiar enough with people with this syndrome to speak authoritatively, but that information stuck with me. This association of Leonard Cohen and Leonard Nimoy has surfaced for me before--my screen saver on my computer is a picture of Leonard Cohen which could just as easily be Leonard Nimoy.

Does El Shadai mean his priestly benediction of unity only for the children of Israel, as he usually does, or for the descendants of the various heathen tribes that communicate with this forum, e.g. Anglo Saxons, Celts, Huns, Nords etc. etc. If so it would be a first for the great Shin as he usually only communicates with his chosen people, which has created more than enough disunity through the ages.

Rule #1 in the prophets handbook:

The simpler the message, the more widely it can it be interpreted.
The high cost of living doesn't seem to have hurt it's popularity!

Ah! Yes. My guess is : it is just a synchronicity. Otherwise the poor man should post this at least twice a week in almost every thread. :D

Thanks Doron, nice to read you again - I was a busy bee, so very busy that I missed why he should have post this in purpose. Good for me. 8)

All in all, I must be in the impossibility to witness the next one for the same reason. But ey! Some silly things can happen but people here are great!

Paula :) Nice to read you again too! Why dear? Vulcan salute is not, hum, "a finger", dear. 8) It is full of inspiration, just have a glance at Lizzy's post about that.

St.Teresa, hello dear! I mean "salute" and you know how. :D

And Anglo Saxons, Celts, Huns, Nords etc. etc. never did any problems to anybody. Of course. ah!. like they say Wa diddy wa diddy dum diddy do (excuse my error of spealing this words of wisdom) Jimbo, lets us take it that way around : this is ain't good anymore. Love (as unity) is the only engine of survival. :wink:

Even if there is turbulences. I guess it is part of the game. Have fun! See you in a while my bunch of crocodiles! :D Love!
