    As I sit here meditating on the nature of the cosmic forces all around me, I realize that if you do not exist, you cannot effect the outcome of the light in any way.

    My serenity is enhanced by this knowledge, and I am encouraged to begin contemplating the IRS. :cool:

    I was suggesting that someone could do this not myself. If I do it being that I don't exist some one would think a ghost did it and call ghost busters. And then who is going to pay the bill for ghost busters to bust a ghost that doesn't even exist. Now we have a light that no one is going to pay for and a bill from ghost busters that no one will pay. And before someone suggests that I pay it, remember I don't exist.

    Which is why we don't have a problem in the first place!

    Now, if you will forgive me, I am picturing a universe without taxes or the IRS. I am not to be disturbed for lesser matters. :flush1:

    Les...To quote a famous philosopher..."I think, therefore I am"....Since you think you don't exist...it only proves you do..!!! And since we think the light is on (or off...) it must, by extension (not a power one...) also exist...either on or off.....:eek::eek::eek:

    Caboose?

    I dang near, just about, almost, but not quite believe that if they got that there caboose here in this tunnel, (or whatever, wherever we are), the possibility of a mirthful thought, a bit of joviality, or maybe even a guffaw may break up all the solemnity therewith.

    Then, since we don't exist, perhaps some other poor lost body will delve into the precarious (thought) of light or no light whilest us nonexistants can put our combined minds on to WHY those existant people exist while we, who were existant, are now nonexistant, perhaps not to the nonexistant extent of Les. :eek::rolleyes::p

    If a thought were to fall in an illuminated, crowded, wet, dank tunnel, would anybody hear it?

    The light... It is flashing...
