Ten people to talk to in a coffee shop in your dream
PostPosted: Tue 20 May, 2008  Reply with quote

If you could choose any 10 people from any time to appear & hang out with for a few hours and maybe be friends with, who would you choose? And why

My list(no specific order):
1. Hitler, my personal favourite politician of all time, how interesting it would be to talk to the man who controlled the public through speech(at first) and the biggest criminal of the modern world. He seemed even more interesting after watch 'Der Untergang'.
2. Yamato Tsunemoto, enjoyed reading his book a lot, it'd be real neat to talk to him.
3. Vladimir Ulyanov(Lenin) father of socialist governments, one of my favourite and most inspiration personalities of all time, his belief in equality is inspirational.
4. Ho Chi Minh, one of my favourite nationalists, fought his entire life for the freedom and independence of his people from French and Chinese rule. One of the most admirable revolutionaries.
5. Yue Fei a symbol of a hero, patriot. A symbol of loyalty and patriotism. Often attributed as the father of Chinese Martial Arts.
6. Kong Zi(Confucius)- confucius the most influential sage ever to live, his philosophies shaped Asia for thousand of years.
7. Vladimir Putin- I love his Putinism, former KGB, judo/sambo champion, plus I just like this guy.
8. Genghis Khan, the man that brought a race of nomadic tribes to shape the vastest empire the world has ever seen , his organisation shaped modern military. Being a conqueror he is able to use foreign populace as tools to aid him.
9. Charles De Gaulle, though the complete occupation of France, he did not let his country die out and in fact after the war he made sure France caught up fast and stay competition with British which he successfully did.

fictional character:
10. Hannibal Lecter, :D

Right...I want to talk to the people that have inspired me..

1. Joe Hisaishi- in my eyes a genius with music. I haven't heard one piece of his that I haven't ADORED

2. Hayou Miyazaki- again, in my eyes a genius animator. Those films, have really, really helped me.

3. My Grampy- There were so many things I never got chance to ask him, and I regret that.

4. Plato- What was he really going on about with that Atlantis story? Truth, or metaphor for the way we live?

5. Descartes- Another philosopher who I greatly admire.

6. Stephen Hawking- Just...words can't describe how amazing that would be.

7. Einstein- A genius, there are so many things I'd love to ask him. I think I'd buy him a pair of socks...

8. Buddha- I'd like to hear it from him directly please!!

9. Shakespeare- Did he really write those books..you must have heard the conspiracy!!

10. A dancing bear- I'd like to hear what he/she had to say about...thing.... blauw

to choose 10 limits your experience of quality and marginalizes it towads the realm of quantity, something most people drown in in the sea of samsara, having too much of what has so little substance

if i could talk to one person I suppose I'd want to talk to someone who has attained perfect self-realization through sun-yoga, to ask him about my progress and for helpful hints.

but the best person to talk to is who you were when you were 3 -4 years old.

people i'd like to chat with :
Albert Hoffman
Timothy Leary
Jesus Christ
Ravi Shankar
P. Yogananda
some sort of cutting edge Beatnik who pulled out of consumer society before it really became a trend.

Ghandi to talk to him at length about our current society, and what people w ho want to have a more sincere spiritual life should do when they find themselves immersed so deeply in its lies.

the Dali Lama though I did talk to him briefly through internet.

In no particular order, other than that it turned out that they became longer and longer:

1. God - to ask about the Bible.
2. Buddha - to learn it from the source.
3. Karl Marx - to hear him explain communism.
4. The guy who discovered fire - to try and communicate.
5. Niels Bohr - because he looks like a nice guy to talk about chemistry with.
6. Orvar Oddr - because he was a viking king who grew up where I live, and to practise my Old Norwegian.
7. Leifr Eiríksson - because he was the first Norwegian to discover America, and to practise my Old Norwegian.
8. Snorri Sturluson - because he wrote much literature to preserve knowledge of the Viking Age, and to practise my Old Icelandic.
9. Ivar Aasen - to thank him deeply for trying to save the Norwegian language, and to learn both Norwegian and Old Norse grammar from him.
10. Charlemagne, to tell him about the song "Sacré Charlemagne" (Damn Charlemagne), and to practise my French - if he spoke Modern French, snd to learn how being king of France was like.

Charlemagne, "Karl the great" actually lived in Aachen (Aix-la-chapelle in french) - though i don't know what he spoke in his time, i never found a sign of french being spoken in Aachen in the past. But who knows tounge2 (I used to live there ^^) Maybe he spoke both old-german and old-french or just a mixture smile

Ten people... uhm, that's difficult.


Really existing human beings

Immanuel Kant - To finally understand his genious ethic system.

Descartes - I admire his thoughts too and it would be really interesting to talk to him.


Special

God of course - However, i would not dare to look at him or to ask a question. I would just wait if he has something to tell me or not.

My own subconcious - never managed to do that...

My spirit/dreamguide - I met him once, but we exchanged only one or two phrases. I want to know who he really is.

Non-existing/fantasy characters

Albus Dumbledore for he's just so incredibly interesting.

Auron of Final Fantasy X - If you've played the game, you'll know why.

My two roleplay characters -
One of them i know perfectly already, but it would be great to talk to him, anyways.
I never understood the other one, even after impersonating him for years in roleplay. And as he is some really bad guy it could be a frightening experience. So count them both as two people.


There is one of ten left, but i dont want to fill this space with "just someone". Don't know yet smile

Random ten people who come from random ages and realitys. Why? because every single person in this world have their own perspective and thoughts about almost every subject. Because the best way to learn something new is by stopping to attach to your old ways of thinking. Because that those people - those people who never led countries, those people who never wrote masterpieces - those people are a fountain of un-hatched ideas. Those people may or may not be able to show you new ideas about the universe, but they can, for certain, show you a new way of thinking, or inspire you for one.

And that's what this world is about - the most important thing is how you think, what some people call attitude - if you think you are better than everyone else, it doesn't really matter what your other thoughts are - they can't be half as "good" as those of a person who sees everyone as equals, or those of a person who doesn't even think of people in terms of >, < and =.

From the present, I'd like to get the truth out of some politicians. George Bush jr or snr would maybe be good enough. I'd ask who they take their orders from and what the plan is. You all know what I'm talking about.

From the future, I'd want to talk to scientists, to learn about out current misconceptions. Also about medicine and technology. I would also like to talk to an historian from the future to see how things will turn out.

From the past, I'd like to hear stories told by ancient people. Legends and such. Their way of life. Preferably far away cultures that live close to nature. Where exactly is not important, nor is when. But before history is always a good time.

From literature, I think it would be fun to hang around wizards from the Discworld. They are quite funny.

The meetingplace could be Bohemian Grove, a good timeless place.

Apart from Putin, I tried to choose dead people since in my dream is probably the only place I'll get to talk to them.

I don't think I could choose ten people, just because that speaking with anyone when you are prepared to speak with them pretty much removes the interest (In a dream; you know what will happen.)

But if I had to choose, I'll take a number of people you might not know: Sergey brin, Yitzhak Rabin, Einstein, Ali larigiany, Dostoyevski [I think]

No special order, I just feel compelled to those people.

You surprised me here. You know your stuff! I'm very impressed. Am I predicting a history major here? Wouldn't it be a little awkward being in a 1 on 1 conversation with Hitler? At such a casual setting as a coffee shop?! hah.

This talk about Hitler reminded me of an interesting character. Namely Alistair Crowley, who Hitler knew and found creepy, or scary, I forget what exactly, but still, someone having that effect on Hitler, combined with his own biography, is someone unusual indeed.
