Meditation at Lagunitas Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Do you agree with Plato that there’s a more perfect spiritual world of ideas out there? What’s the relationship between the "real" world of visible, taste-able, touchable things and the world of intellectual ideas about things?
  2. If there’s nothing in particular that a word like "justice" refers to, then how do we know that such a thing as "justice" exists in the world?
  3. The age-old question: blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries? Which is the best?
  4. Why are we attracted to specific things? Is it mostly because they remind us of things that we have lost?
  5. Would you be offended if your boyfriend/girlfriend said they liked you mostly because you reminded them of happy memories from their childhood?
