Have you figured out how to start a new game? I still can't find anything

I've always wondered that too. Because my soul is already promised to every single Daedric prince, AND as a guardian to places like the hall of the companions. Plus Sithis. I'm voting that being that he is death itself, Sithis wins the day.

Lots of ACDC, Judas Priest, Megadeth, and when I finally catch a break--The Doors.

Except, ya know, we disassembled Germany's military after WWII and they only JUST finished paying back the reparations from it all... (
Because, ya know, every German obviously represented Hitler.)

I work at a nursing home for people with Alzheimers. Almost all of our men are vets. It was awesome getting to thank them all in person! Thanks to all
Who is your favourite God from myths? on 11/12/2013 12:47:23 AM
I really like Hecate, Artemis, Persephone, and Cerberus (not quite a god but oh well) from Greek mythology. (And their Roman counterparts)
Also: I love Norse mythology. The Loki and Thor you see in the movies are nothing like the actuals.

I was just adding my thoughts to the subject. And I'm not remotely religious. I wasn't saying that's what I believe, but that its one of the many ideas I have pondered. I try to think of things from all different views.

"I told you that i'm an Atheist, so you should know that when I think of death, I think of everything that I ever was ending, my body turning into worm-food, and time passing by until everything that I was, even memories of me, simply die out."
Ah, but this is precisely what I find so fascinating! Now, I am an Agnostic. I have no effing clue what happens to us. But when I do consider atheism, I consider this: Let's say we know for absolute certainty there is no form of life or anything similar after death. There is no such thing as a "soul". And yet--we STILL are never gone forever!! First, the definition of conservation of mass: mass can neither be created or destroyed. So when our bodies do begin to decompose, we do remain in some sense. We simply....transform. We ultimately become soil, which helps plants grow, which helps animals grow, which in turn can help more humans again. Now, some people don't consider this enough. That's fine! There's more! Our particles continuously bounce around the universe until the end of time. There are molecules around you right now that once brushed against a neanderthal millenias ago. Every time an atom passes you by, the electrons never quite touching, it continues infinitely across time and space--in a way carrying a piece of you with it. I'm sorry, I just think its so exciting!!
On a more philosophical note: Maybe (just maybe) our thoughts and our memories never cease to exist. Now, obviously, when our brain dies, we lose all access to these things. No one else can attain them, and we are too dead to do anything with them. HOWEVER--can something that isn't tangible ever truly die?? Perhaps they become lost--like ancient history--but they're still THERE. Locked away forever, but never dead. Ahhhhh I'm going to shut up now before I overload my mind!
EDIT: I'm sorry you guys...I got a little too excited.....I'm far too enthusiastic about philosophy

I think you REALLY should do some research on the philosophical views of Carl Jung--he has an answer for every subject you brought up. I also am a personal fan of Soren Kierkegaard's work (but hey, we're both Danes, what can I say?)
1. Region of Origin: Murrica
2. Views on women: Well....I'm a woman. I think we're pretty cool. But seriously I think males and females are equal in all ways, and should have equal rights, etc etc. This goes both for males who think they are better than females, as well as females who assume all men are stupid pigs. We're all just people and aside from certain biological limitaions, we are capable of the same things.
3. Darkness: I grew up absolutely terrified of the dark. Now, I also faced a lot of adversity during my childhood. Ultimately, I decided to face my fears and not only put up with the darkness, but accept it. I love the night, the moon, the shadows, and the stars. They bring me comfort. What we truly fear is what could be IN the dark--not the darkness in and of itself.
4. Light: Light tends to have the connotation of being good, wholesome, holy, etc. Quite frankly, I just view it as the scientific thing it is XD Different colors and spectrums and whatnot. However, if I WERE to look at it in the metaphorical way, I'd say it honestly lives up to the assumptions. My personal favorite symbol is a single light in the darkness--someone good guiding others who may be lost.
5. Death: I do not know what happens after death. I fully and completely accept this. The most I can do is speculate. Perhaps there is a god, perhaps there is nothing, perhaps we remain in some sort after death, or perhaps we simply rot. Frankly, I /prefer/ to believe that there is something waiting for us after death. I know its unlikely, but I like to have faith in that possibility anyway--because truly we know nothing for certain, and I think it is arrogant to make any hard claims. I choose not to fear death, because honestly it only exists when I do not.
6. Origins of the universe: I do believe in the big bang theory. This does not make me an atheist. I personally am an agnostic--but I do believe science and religion can coexist. I also believe in evolution. I believe that it is /possible/ some higher force or being orchestrated all of this to happen--I do not know.
7 Humans: My favorite! I consider myself to be what is known as a Humanist. Essentially, this means I believe that ALL people are inherently good. I love all people, faults included. I believe every damn one of us is equal, and it is heartbreaking to me when we tear one another down. My main goal in life, and my driving force of motivation, is to help as many people as I can to the very best of my ability. I like to take the time and just think how silly some of our humanity is. We get upset when we lose money, but how does this affect the rest of the world? The universe? Only a very tiny group is affected. We all make mistakes. None of us can fully understand our world, our universe. We are who we are, and that isn't going to change. Perhaps it will ultimately be the end of us--but it also is what has kept us surviving and pushing forward for so long. I love everyone.
Sorry this is so long! I know I sound like a hippie....I'm not O.O Honest......*scuttles away*
