[NF149] About life, universe and everything...

Amazing things I've learned in this game so far to help me through real life:

- You're seeking reliable friends for fighting your own cause to the end or die trying.
- This is actually a typical Russian conviction, so I'm told.
- Don't bother about such trivial stuff as trust, its overrated.
- Just saying you're telling the truth repeatedly is the communication policy of choice.
- There may be shades of gray in the world (somewhere), but in military its only Black and White.
- Talking about people not taking part in the conversation is more important than talking to each other.

Well..., I'm baffled. I must have been living under a very shady rock all these years!

that wasn't aimed at me, was it? ))

sometime you told me that there are many shades of grey
so I remind to you your statement
in the world there are a lot of different people and different cultures and different mentalities

and you can think that trust just an element of communication, but for the majority of Russians confidence and truth really is the most important value which determines a lot in life

and we understand this perfectly, but that is our culture
sorry ))

ps. I see that you really touched our communication since you chose to discuss it on the forum ))
well and good.
it will be a good chance for you to learn more about another culture )) I'm just glad

regards
max

No, on the contrary, it was meant for all others but you, just to share your wisdom with the world out there. Why should it only be me to benefit from your thoughtful insights?

And since you took over responsibility/ownership/copyright by replying after I didn't mention you at all, yes, there is one thing that's still on my mind:

How come whenever you say things like "well and good", "just glad" and stuff I have a gut feeling you actually mean exactly the opposite? Is that a "cultural difference" as well, or am I only hearing the grass growing?

It is difficult to convince people of sincerity if he is not ready to accept such a mentality.

I was never negative or evil to be not who I am. I am always who I am and your right to refer to it as you want.
but if we can take the basis of what they say is what really are we can move forward.

in my opinion proper communication is communication without errors. in this case, the mistake can become a lie or insincerity. no matter consciously or not. all that is in this case is the desire to be honest above all with yourself.
this may be important understanding.

generally speaking, all of these existential questions that very few relate to the topic of the forum ))
and I think that has a lot of say off topic to continue ))

What you say is correct... in the past, to be clear about it: the few days we're in touch. But will you be in the future as well? Have you been for the xx years we did not talk before?
See, and that's when trust becomes a factor... with most people, so with me as well.
My Granny always said "Never trust people who keep talking about their own honesty" and my Granny was a very wise woman.

Why, the form topic is "About life, universe and everything", so, basically cant get any more existential. Don't hesitate to elaborate some more! I'm all ears, eager to learn, don't know what exactly, eager nonetheless.

not always what say grandmother should take lightly.
in my opinoin the conscious man tries to act adequately to the situation.
and if grandma said not to believe, so not believe, who am I to argue with your grandmother ))
