    Some of those points were touched on and some were more fully debated. The time went very quickly and the meeting lasted nearly two hours :)

    I know I enjoyed myself a lot and it was great to meet people who were so willing to discuss topics at a deep level with people whom they had only just met :) Such a refreshing change from the majority of conversations ;)

    I will look to set a date for the next meeting soon, so if "gurus" could think about possible topics that might be of interest then that would be cool!

    Thanks again to all who turned up and made it such a good meeting with their positivity to contribute :)

    See you all again soon,
    Sean

      Okay, Rob is coming too, and hopefully one or two other "gurus" might pop in. I was only anticipating this session to be around an hour to hour an a half, but maybe time flies and we're still there in the midst of discussion when you arrive Alan :)

    Hi Alan,
    that would be pretty cool if you could and they wanted to come along.

    I will make some notes/discussion points for the topics and bring them along to the meetup so as to help generate comments/debate etc,.

    Look forward to seeing you there :)

  • Al S.

    Hi Sean,
    by a funny or destiny coincidence the book swap is near
    Do you want to enlarge the debate and me to invite some other potential meetup menbers to join after the book swap ?, I think it is preferable to debate at sevreal especialy I m not familar with the 2 topics of this 1st session
    please advise

    Hi Yuka, Alan, everybody :)

    I'm just contacting a similar group now to see if we can utilise their topics/notes for our group and the leader on that site has said he will get back to me in a day or two.

    Other than that I like many of the topics suggested, my votes are as follows,

    1. Is the schooling system discriminatory and controlling

    2. Is there a place for philosophy in the 21st century

    So far we have 7 members and the suitable times for each member seem quite disparate, but hopefully we will work out times which will work for the majority of folks.

    I'll update again soon,
    Sean

    My topic suggestions 1) Is the abortion a real progress for women 2) "Is the school system justified discrimination and controlling system? How to save and drops the drop outs?What would be the utopic school?" 3) What's your definition of your happiness 4)What would be the political system

  • Al S.

    Hi Sean any idea of topic ?
    so I can start to meditate before the meeting :-) ?
    I did sale "does women really comes from venus and men from mars" to poistive thinker but we can still debate inside or I can suggest another "Fate, destiny, or luck, impact on our live and survval guide when every seems go against you"

    cheers

    PS may I suggest U to open the 1st and 2nd even if you encouter difficulty to recrut to all , once the club gain reputation we can "close back" our converstation to final members it was how we did "attract people" as co karaoke organisator lol

    Hi Sean,
    thanks for approving so quickly my membership,
    just want to let know that there is a probability that I will be assigned on some November WE to go to work for some testing upgraded for my firm. But I wanted to be among the first to join this Philosopher club.
    "With only certainty and without probability life could be boring" lol
    So in case I cannot not make it for this date I will try my best for the next meeting
    cheers

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
