What are your philosophical musings?

hi all, a colleague was talking about whether there was anything faster than light and I suggested "thoughts". Colleague disagreed as you don't talk about thoughts in terms of units of distance, so that got me thinking, if you think of thoughts as being per minute (or other unit of time) does that mean they exist in time but not in space?

I'm not after an answer to that, just wondered what musings other people have?

I graduated before the advent of string theory so I sometimes ponder that and try to get my head around it.

That, and the existence of Goldilocks planets.

Is there a dog?

jabberwocky - is that after Brian Cox?
I saw that programme last night - totally amazing, isn't it?

I think that by probability there have to be loads of Goldilocks planets, but that doesn't mean that there are - because science means that is has to be so just right that it's nigh-on impossible.

Actually, I didn't see that but have been reading Stephen Hawking and some like that. I think that since they have already found one so very quickly that there probably are many more out there. And i find that comforting in a way.

Jack, there is more than one dog, I saw at least 3 yesterday.

Jabberwocky, I really need to do some intelligent reading even if it is, as I suspect it will be, so far above my head I will need some super telescope

"You Are Not Alone"

Another day has gone
I'm still all alone
How could this be
You're not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

But you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
But you are not alone

'Lone, 'lone
Why, 'lone

Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come
And hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
Then forever can begin

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
you are not alone

Whisper three words and I'll come runnin'
And girl you know that I'll be there
I'll be there

You are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay
you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

you are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

For you are not alone...
Not alone ohh
You are not alone
You are not alone
Say it again
You are not alone
You are not alone
Not alone, Not alone
If you just reach out for me girl
In the morning, in the evening
Not alone, not alone
You and me not alone
Oh together together
Not not being alone
Not not being alone
