    Descartes wrote  I think therefore I am


    is that really you what thinks?


    Do you decide to think a thought when you like - or when not?

    And when you not decide to think - are you not thinking then?


    If you are that which is producing your thoughts, then why are there uncomfortable thoughts?


    This knowledge "I am" is not a thought. Do you have to think it up or do you just know it?
    It's more like a feeling, the feeling to exist, but it's not a feeling. It is knowledge.

     

    Have you ever felt that you do not exist?

  2. I notice that there is a lot of talk here about knowing and belief, but I don't see a clear definition of these terms. so what are you discussing about?
    I'll try a definition about belief:


    belief is the unquestioned acceptance of an idea in the absence of verification and reason

     

    But  what is knowing?
    The first and maybe only thing I know is that I exist.
    I am!

    not:

    I am a person, or this person with that name and that body and that life experience.

     

    Who can prove to me that I am not an alien who dreams of being human?
    What is  the point in discussing God when I don't know who I am?

    Yes a Pseudo Curfew.  Gas stations are the other issue as many have convenience stores attached to them, and this would create a travel dilemma for those who travel at night like we do starting at midnight for most trips.  Only have to avoid the drunks and trucks with no rear lights is all.

    that's why I don't like travelling at night. And don't forget the motorbikes without rear light. Have to focus much more then  at daytime

    Flu and pneumonia are real killers. According to the latest WHO data published in 2018 Influenza and Pneumonia Deaths in Thailand reached 44,549 or 9.11% of total deaths.

     

    https://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/thailand-influenza-pneumonia

     

    That’s 3,712 deaths PER MONTH in Thailand.

     

    In an entire YEAR there have been 97 deaths in Thailand attributed to Covid-19.

     

    Just adding a little perspective to the ongoing debate.

     

    that information is dynamite.  I talked to a Thai - they bluntly refuse to believe. I don't understand why nobody pays attention to it.  In the world and here in Thaivisa.

    I didn't even expect the mainstream media or the governments or the vaccine business to take care.

    But where are the investigative journalists all over the world? Are they all gone?

    Not always possible to operate immediately . Often it is required to allow swelling to reduce before surgery .

    that's right.

    He likely got a deep vein thrombosis and subsequent pulmonary embolism. Can not be avoided sometimes. The question is : did he get Heparin injections from day 1 for thrombosis prophylaxis ? If he did  I would consider his death just fate. I got the impressions that they don't take thrombosis prophylaxis serious enough in Asia.

    asked some hill tribe men why do you burn when you have been asked to stop, because we can was the answer, we live here we do what we want.

    So something should be done that they cannot anymore - threaten with removing them from the mountains ...

    and then do so as soon as the next fire appears

     

    Nobody should no way be allowed to destroy the health of many people
