Default Re: What is the point, or meaning of life?

Abe, no bias there? :-P

How about the inventors of palak paneer and tandoori chicken? Ok, they ain't pizza but meals like that suggest to me that meditating at a small statue of an elephant or someone with six arms can lead one to nirvana.

Have pizzas had more impact on the world than hamburgers or fried rice? Keltner or Gordon? Ringo or Charlie? Big Macs would be equivalent to a cheap drum machine - plastic and soulless.

I didn't take philosophy, Wy. I just looked up hedonism sometime last year and remember that some philosopher was keen on it and looked him up again. I wouldn't know a symposium from an ontologist. Feel free to enlighten me :)
