Sharing My World 12-10-2020

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

Are we “here” or do we just think we are? (A metaphysical question today folks.) Can you prove your point of view?
Are we here? Am I here? Are you here? Do you exist? Are you artefacts of my subconscious, or am I product of yours? Am I leading a life shaped by another’s fevered dreams? Am I experiencing reality in the same way as you?

These and other questions will not be answered or even considered, because that’s how you go raving mad and spend the rest of your life weaving baskets.


From an identity stand-point, which would be the worst for you personally to lose? Your face, your body or your voice? Which do YOU identify with most strongly for your own sense of self?
Well, the only one I could function without is my voice. I’d be a right state without my face or body.

Yeah, I know that’s not what the question was actually asking 🙂

Do you have a ‘song’? If you’re part of a couple, you could use “your couple’s song” OR a song that’s just always resonated with you.
Nope. ’nuff said.

Are ghosts real or has someone been smoking something and just imagines them?
No, ghosts aren’t real. Apart from Casper, obviously. He’s real. And friendly.

    Ghosts aren’t real? Tell that to my son.

    If any of us ever meet a ghost we better hope it’ll be Casper or another friendly one. The same goes for an alien. I’m not in the mood for nasty aliens. 😀 — Suzane

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World and some very profound thoughts! No ghosts? Who you gonna call? Non-ghostbusters…. ♪♫♪ ha!

      The Ghostbusters are sadly unemployed 🙂

    Casper says Hi and aren’t you forgetting his vast family?

    What’s wrong with spending the rest of one’s life weaving baskets? 😉

    I was weaving baskets until I started wondering if I were weaving them or they were weaving me, and then they had me all tied up in knots. Now I just keep repeating, “conundrum, conundrum” and people think I’m Danny from The Shining.

      That’s the problem with baskets, nasty things, sowing confusion throughout the world.

    My youngest is 28 and still thinks this house I live in is haunted. lol
    If it is they must be relatives of Casper, cause I’ve been here 25 years and no problems.

      That’s good, the last thing you want is a cantankerous ghost making a nuisance of itself around the place.

    The Basket Weavers Guild will not be sending you a card this Christmas. Not that they’d be able to do that while in straitjackets, anyway….

      I think they write their cards with a pen in their mouth and are largely illegible. Still I’m disappointed not be getting one this year…

    We r here but we r not 🙂 that’s why the identity doesn’t matter…


    • October 21, 2020 at 5:24 am

      I try not to think too deeply about such things. They make me feel a bit funny 😦 Or do they…?

    ‘Are you artefacts of my subconscious’ (Wow! Deep!)


  11. October 22, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    I’ve yet to meet a ghost (if there are such things) but Caspar will do nicely for me. As for question one, I can’t quite get my head around being either ‘bodyless’ or faceless, especially the former, so your answer is spot on. 😀


    • October 23, 2020 at 2:45 pm

      It’s best not to think too deeply about some of these questions 🙂


  12. October 28, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    I’m pretty sure that bodiless, I would have serious issues with whether or not I was alive. I’m thinking NOT alive.


    • October 29, 2020 at 3:39 pm

      That’s the essence of being a ghost I suppose 🙂
