      I suspect he is referring to observing all of us earthling creatures.

      (Which works in our favor. Engrossed in his observations he is less likely to notice who is observing him.)

      Don't worry, we'll also pay you a visit to Mars soon, and bring you cookies and chocolates.

  • HIPPOGRIFF, n. An animal (now extinct) which was half horse and half griffin. The griffin was itself a compound creature, half lion and half eagle. The hippogriff was actually, therefore, a one-quarter eagle, which is two dollars and fifty cents in gold. The study of zoology is full of surprises.

      What I couldn’t ever understand is why a hippogriff wasn’t at least part hippopotamus.

      Do you think hungry hungry hippogriffs eat marbles?

      1/4 Lion + 1/4 Eagle + 1/2 Horse = Hippogriff?

      It surely has an interesting genotype. We need to do its karyotyping.

      Is there any other type of delusional when delusion comes from one's own perception?
    • Artemius_I
      Artemius_I
      For the record, I might be speaking out of ignorance but I'm not sure I entirely agree. I think self-delusion is the easiest trap to fall into for one who believes they know themselves perfectly. We're all guilty of that to some extent. Though, true, refusing to acknowledge your failings is truly reprehensible.
    • mlnevese

      Persisting in self-delusion after you have evidence you are deluding yourself is simply denying reality. And that may be very dangerous for yourself.

      Dissociative disorders as defined by DSM-IV have some of what is being mentioned here, including self delusion and and altering perceptions of one's consciousness and view of realty. And yes, it can be the 'bad', as it is not intentional.

      That's actually a very valid point, who would ever want to pollute their gene pool with destructive humanism?

      Btw, do you guys even have genes?

      Not exactly... We do have structures that serve the same purpose though... But they can be changed... it's part of being a polymorphic life form...
