165. Oy vey!
I get the feeling that winning arguments must be really important to you since you have been hinting on this for the last couple of posts now. And you assume that I am trying to win an argument but I assure you that I'm not really concerned about winning arguments here. I'm not even trying to convince you that you should subscribe to my opinion. I'm merely stating my take which you obviously dislike so you seem to be trying really hard to disqualify my opinion. But if you are bothered by the fact that I don't respect Deepak Chopra's world view (and bothered with my reasons for it and try to disqualify my opinion by focusing on the instances when I show disrespect for the world view) then please try a convincing argument. So far you did not provide any convincing argument to change my opinion. And you will have even less success if you try to make me and my supposed intentions the focus of the discussion like you have been trying to do. In short, you are wasting my time and your own time.

I have participated in this forum for some time and the only times I really learned anything were when I lost arguments and had someone convince me that I should change my take on a topic. In other words, I prefer to have someone prove me wrong and I am not afraid to lose arguments.

I conceded to you earlier that I was wrong about Deepak Chopra's fumbled response. I was wrong because what sounded incoherent to me (and it still sounds incoherent to me for the many reasons I provided in my posts) may sound coherent to others who subscribe to the world view. But you can't stand the fact that I don't see any coherence in the response and that I have no respect for Deepak Chopra's world view. In short, this discussion is going nowhere.
