Okay, there are two more questions from the original 'bring a question evening' and probably many more that have occurred for you and me after the last few meetings. Let's see where it takes us this time.

Hope to see you all next Thursday. Ziggy

    Brilliant clip, thanks Peter ! I hope everybody watches it. It's very revealing. Funny, I never liked playing Monopoly as a kid and still don't.....

    Good points Monique, as always I really like your comments ! Tell me about the English language being insufficient and frustrating ! I'm still trying to learn it. However the way we use language can give us many clues as to how we perceive or value things, ideas and concepts and how these values change. So observing language and how it is used (to manipulate for example) can be an enlightening way of learning about humanity.

    I believe intelligence did come first (of course this depends on your definition) ..and that wisdom is applied knowledge. You can have all the knowledge in the world and yet have the wisdom of a lentil.

    This quote rang especially true for me following last night's discussion:

    Those who desire to rise as high as our human condition allows, must renounce intellectual pride, the omnipotence of clear thinking, belief in the absolute power of logic.

    Trying to rationalise, quantify, explain and formulate is futile when you are seeking that which is at the same time above and beyond our comprehension and yet is exactly who we are. Yes, the English language is insufficient and frustrating. Let's not get caught examining the patterns of the bark on the trees when the forest is the answer.

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.
