Uhm nope I think it is fair for me to reply especially since he mentioned me.
Also:

I think about it differently now, so maybe that clears the air somewhat.

Edit: discuss pm all you want, I'll see what comes out of it

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

For starters, I was there when Double-J left the forums. He promised me he would come back some time, and in turn I promised him I would help to give him a reason to come back.

Double-J did make a valiant efford with his thread back then, but it didn't catch on and now that he's away I'd like to fix things my own way. There's no denying there is a need for it, to some extend, and because I feel I can help, I'd like to take the opportunity to save what was lost. If that means I need to intermediate, then hell yeah

Haha, yeah, he's quite the dude. I love him too.
But I meant everything, him, and what this place used to be. Like other people have said, this place isn't what it used to be. I want to return all of that.

Because I can
Also, I intend to keep my promise with the Twinsuniverse, and I have resumed my work on the project as we speak.

Well I had an idea for an explanation as to why the MBN is so inactive at the moment. Is it possible, and remember this is just a theory, that MBN'ers are boring people with nothing interesting to say?

Or maybe, just maybe, there is one super-user who made all the accounts, and is now bored of pretending that there is an actual LBA-community

So, are you now saying that you are pretending not to be yourself, pretending to be someone who is trying to convince yourself that you aren't you?
I bet you didn't follow that.

But by admitting not to follow what I just said, you proved my point not to be such a super-user, or not to be doing a great job at it.
So plan or no plan, I got ya.

But by initiating the idea that everybody here is one and the same person, you're really saying that we are all figments of your own imagination, not real, no one but yourself. And you can't be if you don't understand what I was saying... so I proved you couldn't be right.

nice theory, i think i may have seen it somewhere before... (you'll have to opt-in for roofles).

This also confirms I'm a (previously) secret lurker of the off-topic forums.

Renesans : I remember that thread yeah
Jack : Not possibly, you're assuming that I think, therefore I am, but that might not be the case, I might simply be the creation of what is really thinking, as such, I am not aware of it, and not aware of what my creator is thinking.

Hahah. This feels like it's actually getting lower. I'm supposed to be the filosofical one here, so I say that you're not making any sense. You can only consciously conclude that you "are", by being aware, which is what can only possibly come from one's self. Thinking could potentially come from some kind of forced mental influence, but alone could not produce any such mental state. Eventhough being aware is likely to come before the ability to think.

Imagine Twinsen. Now imagine him becoming aware of himself and starting to live his peaceful life on Citadel Island.
When asked, he will say that he thinks, therefore he exists, whereas he still doesn't exist, he is still just a part of you, aware of itself, but not of yourself.

He thinks, therefore he knows that he exists. That doesn't mean that he exists as a particular type of something. It doesn't mean he knows anything else (it also doesn't mean that he doesn't know these things). If he is a self-aware projection or whatever it is you're suggesting then he still exists as whatever the fuck that is.

Get your Descartes straight.

Okay, now project a self-aware grobo-clone. These are both aware of themselves, but don't necessarily know that they are in fact one and the same.

They are not. Cloned "copies" are not the same entity.

So there's Twinsen and there's the Grobo. If they don't actually exist then they don't think. If they only exist inside your head then they don't think. You're the one doing the thinking. You exist.

This is not groundbreaking, it's a misunderstanding of the concept. This is first year shit that philosophy professors groan over.
