What do you think ole Sam did in China Town, frequent opium dens
More to the point;
Everyone loves beauty, because there is ugliness.
Everyone loves goodness, because there is evil.
Existence, non-existence beget each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short contrast each other.
High and low rest upon each other.
Voice and sound harmonize each other.
Front and back follow each other.
Therefore, sages doing without effort, teaching without words.
Everything rise and fall without end.
Creating, yet not possessing,
Working, yet not taking credit.
Successful, gives credits to others and moves on;
Thus, receives respect forever more.
I think Rudi's right
Speaking in parables can be entertaining but should be done with caution. You may view yourself as a student of Aristotle but others may view you as the old man shouting invectives at the gate.
Suffering some small harms can make us stronger. Few people will argue that position concerning toxins that accumulate in the body.
Although much of Texas is flatter than most of Pennsylvania, we too have places where deep aquifers drain into rivers. Down here we call them "springs." If you had actually bothered to look at the web page I directed you to, you would have found that EVEN IN PENNSYLVANIA surface water recharges the aquifers. For example, the data from Wapwallopen Creek shows an annual recharge rate of 15 to 20 inches. Had you actually looked at it, you could have spoken from a position of slightly less ignorance, than usual.
Thank you Pat,
I realized that, and offered victory above....
I have nothing of value to add to this discussion. On this topic, I have deemed my opinions to be divisive, and of low value.
Rudi and Cecil have provided a clear and viable method of electrolysis. Arguing the semantics of alternate methods, is madness, in retrospect.
One of the tenets that I live by, but am not always very good at is this:
Unfortunately, the internet has a way of confusing me as to the condition of "being in the presence of others".
I deeply apologize to all, for my conduct during this conversation. I do apologize, especially to Jim, for something I call "taunting the Lion".... whereby, by not overtly insulting an "enemy", one teases in order to provoke response.
The purpose of such an exercise is to, I suppose, cause oneself to be put in one's place, or to learn patience from the process of being attacked.
Nothing I wrote was in anger, however, and in all honesty, everything that Jim and I disagree upon tends to evolve from different takes on the same "truths".....Jim sees one truth in a given statement, while, perhaps, I see many, or none.
I did take a look at the weblink you provide, Jim, but did not interpret the information provided there in the same manner as you did, evidently. Again....you see one truth, I see others, or none.
Once again, I apologize to all for my conduct here on this topic. Especially, I apologize to Jim. I also thank Jim for providing me many important lessons in this discourse, but not in the way that one would think.
