Yes I like to keep things light too.......

So:....Mixing with 'philosophy '

A charming limerick from Robert Knox....inspired by Bishop Berkeley's concerns about being and perception

'There was a young man who said, God

 Must find it exceedingly odd

To think that the tree

Should continue to be

When there's no one about in the quad.

 

Which prompted an anonymous reply.

 

Dear Sir, Your astonishment's odd; 

I am always about in the quad.

And that's why the tree

Will continue to be

Since observed by, Yours faithfully, God

Times I find it hard to say
With useless words getting in my way
Silence often says much more
Than trying to say what's been said before.

I feel that reality has become an abstract for so many people over the last 20 years. Things that they regarded as truths seem to have just melted away, and it's almost as if we're thinking post-philosophically now. There's nothing to rely on any more. No knowledge, only interpretation of those facts that we seem to be inundated with on a daily basis. Knowledge seems to have been left behind and there's a sense that we are adrift at sea. There's nothing more to hold on to, and of course political circumstances just push that boat further out.

-David Bowie, October 2003, on the title of his album Reality

I've had something like five teachers who've have that quote hung up in their classroom.
