    Thanks for the info LuckyE, always interesting...

    I dont think I was talking abour Existentialism. I knew the meaning of Empiricism. Also, I think I confused Locke, he was an empiricist, who tried to find universal rules (Empirical formulas) from observation. And the other movement (actually school of thoguht might be a better word as I dont think it was a movement), was originated by Descartes, who did not want to find the 'truth' from observation as he thought this universe could be an illusion, a dream created by someone, and hence the 'I think therefore I am". Maybe they were called "Idealists", or maybe they werent called anything, and Im just wasting everyone's time But I would try to look it up somewhere.

    Good find, Roy.

    I think Descartes was a headcase myself, with a not-very-good grasp of unreality.

    Yes, but not where you are looking.

    Look at the few words which follow the ones you highlighted.

    a question for you science folk...
    lots of people say that writing on your skin with pen is really bad for you, is this just a misconception or is it true? i wonder because most people dont take much notice if it is true.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    Simple answer - very bad.

    Certain chemicals present in fibre-tip and ball-point ink are definitely not good for you.

    Benzene and phenol can be absorbed subcutaneously (through the skin) - writing on the skin is almost as bad for you as putting the pen in your mouth (and that's either end - the plasticisers in the little bung at the back end can also be toxic).

    Chew on a pencil instead. The paint is non-toxic, the wood will do you no harm (apart from the methanol which could cause blindness) and the carbon in the 'lead' (graphite) will do you the world of good.

    my friend wrote on my arm in black, and it came off blue... i think the pen company has tricked me- the black is just a very dark blue.
