You can't be here, I'm here and there is only me here so you must be there - wherever that may be. Save the work for Monday, today is Sunday and, allegedly, a day of rest which you sound as though you need.

I'm certainly here - but you are probably a figment of my imagination :)

How do you know you are not a figment of TrolleyDollyLover's imagination? As far as I can see you could be http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/confused.gif !

..as Schroedinger's cat walks across the room

Which is of course impossible as the parody of Schroedingers Cat is a thought experiment...

Nonsense. I stuffed the cat into a Klein bottle and cast it rimwards.

You are all figments of my imagination. I can't imagine why. I must be a bit off my trolley, Dolly...

I can see you all here. Can you see me? If not, might I suggest that you may be sight impaired. I'm aware of a mental condition where the suffer refuses to see or recognise things which upset them. If you cannot see me you must be suffering this condition, and therefore you should take note of the warning shown before you enter Jet Blast:


Now bugger off!

I'm not a PPRuNe addict. (just need one more post)

I missed Schroedinger's cat, it must have wandered by on the other side of the mobius strip, chasing the mouse ...

Fippety, flopperty flip,
A mouse on a mobius strip
The strip revolved
And the mouse dissolved
In a paradimensional slip

Catastrophic. Or a quantum box of Go Cat. A Cat III approach you might say. Sorry, the pun is mightier than the siamese, I'll get back in my box now. Here puss puss puss... ;)

Did I say work? It is actually a play on words my little Droogs for I am of now for a vellocette and a little bit of the Old In Out. Anybody care to join me down here.

PS the Cats name in the box is Theory...Chaos the Cat Theory.

Actually none of us are here, Steepclimb does not exist except in my mind and as a perception in your mind as you read this. Here, is actually a screen facing you so the only person here is you. I don't actually exist for you, you think you know me but you don't.
So none of us are actually here or there and our existence is only as fleeting as your memory of what you read.
I don't really know why we get so mad at seeing a series of electrons fired at a phosphorescent screen but here we are or not as it happens.
We are quite alone in our thoughts, consider as you read this, that you see an expression of my mind in a form you can read but not understand. But I exist for you as you read this but only as long as you read this. You don't exist for me at all because I cannot be here when I exist for you.

There is an exception though, if for a brief fleeting moment you understand and feel what I say as you read this. You become me and therefore I exist in your mind however briefly.
So to answer the question I'm not out there, I'm here inside you.

I thought I was, therefore I must have been.

I used to be schizophrenic until they cured me and now where am I when I need me most?

Not here that's for sure. I'm still the only one here. Perhaps you are out looking for yourself. :) :)

No. Just like tomorrow is the day that never comes. :) ;)

Tomorrow is already here in Australia and it's still yesterday in America.

Met a man upon a stair
When I looked he wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
Oh how I wish he'd go away

But Slasher. One day you will be an ex-Slasher. Then, for an instant, you will be what isn't. After which you will be a was but isn't anymore and a won't be both at the same time. Except that, as you already know, time is a dependent variable and therefore meaningless to an isn't or a wasn't or a won't.

Chaos? It's the only thing that makes sense really. Reality is an illusion.

You can't 'be' what isn't, you can only be something that is.

As it were...

And yet...

If I'm him and he is you, then who am I and who is eating this kebab for breakfast, and I certainly dont want to know what the creature is in my bed.
