Yes.

And, war is merely another avenue of human expression. I'm not being sarcastic; war is humanity's ultimate method of displaying one of life's most basic qualities: violence.
The act of giving life is a violent act. Taking life is violent. Life itself creates, and destroys. Oftentimes there is a little bit of both in any given event.

And not all wars are fought with physical weapons. Nor are they always obvious.

Life extension is something I have been interested in since I was a teenager. It began when I read Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach, by Durk Pearson.

This subject has been brought up on this forum numerous times, and I do not wish to repeat what has already been said, but I have never understood the idea that a significantly increased lifespan would somehow decrease the quality of one&#8217;s life, or decrease the value of life. I have always thought the meaning of life was to go as long as you could without dying. Obviously, not everyone agrees.

I cannot help but think of your analogy as in Greater Magic. The celebrant is the master and he gives command unto the slave.

What is fascinating to think about is if that could be looked at as your consciousness traveling or transcending beyond between the ears.

Agreed!

I just stumbled on an article posted on Magister Svengali's blog and thought it related quite well:

If you don't want to watch the whole thing, just skip to 5:05. It pretty much proves what John said.
