We must recognize our lost condition: Keith, Thanks again for some insightful comments. I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. The Lola T, T, T, T, and T were campaigned by the factory and various customers, and were primarily Chevy powered.

How do I know if I am the Administrator

People often report having profound thoughts when doing mundane things. They aren't mentally focused on any particular thing during these moments but the mind isn't shut off either. It's relaxed and moves freely, probably digging up and revisiting previously unresolved ideas, but without the pressure to perform.

So, a relaxed state opens avenues of thought. A "No-mind" state shuts the mind off, blocking the process. The same effect as over-focusing. The mind can be "off" at the same time that consciousness is fully alert. Consciousness enables us to feel the pleasure and quality of our existence, whereas the mind can't feel, it can only hypothesize, consider, and speculate. First, I acknowledge that 'self' in the sense of "Who am I?

I do believe that the question is unanswerable in any definite, eternal sense, however I'd like to pose then the question of "Who am I now? While this question will run into the same mental situations as with "Who am I? For me, the process of self-discovery is never-ending.

I believe that reflecting on the stories we tell ourselves is crucial to understanding our own 'self'. Certainly, the mere measurement effect will kick in once we begin to evaluate ourselves, but in the way that people can be influenced to donate blood more readily by asking the question if they would, we can influence ourselves through introspective storytelling.

We can tell ourselves who we believe we are, and in telling that story, we can influence ourselves to be that very person. This is a primary reason why I view the question of "Who am I now? Further, I wonder if the practice of regularly asking "Who am I now? Finally, I can't argue against the fact that many decisions are made before we are even consciously aware of them, and that the rationales provided afterwards are fabrications we create for ourselves to fill in the patterns, but shouldn't the nature of those stories carry weight in determining our perceptions of our 'self'?

If nothing else, the nature of those stories at least provides a guide for examining our own "portfolio of potentials", which should not be easily dismissed as a shallow understanding of who we are as people. Thanks again for some insightful comments. I need to think a little more about the difference between who am I and who am I now? To me, the may appear different but experientially, perhaps they are the same one. In other words, when someone is trying to answer who am I?

Your belief that the "I" is unknowable is perhaps right. However, in a sense, that's the story you have told yourself and, as you mentioned, you will likely "fulfill" that story.

Would you ever consider the possibility that the self is knowable? Spiritual traditions, of course, provide various paths to "knowing oneself.

The idea in meditation at least as far as I can tell is to still the mind to the point that it no longer acts as a filter in translating the external world to us. It seems plausible, in this state, that we can perceive reality as it is Certainly, "Who am I? Our choice of words, our diction, is very influential. By adding that 'now', I believe that it helps to mentally restrict the question in a way that makes both the question much more manageable and the answers much less imposing.

This is, of course, an fairly unsubstantiated claim at this point, only supported by my understanding that we do react differently depending on how things are phrased evidenced by the plethora of synonyms, as well as the existence of buzzwords. It would be interesting to look more into this. Moving on to whether I would entertain the possibility of a knowable 'self': I have thought about the possibility, and while it is difficult to conceptualize, it doesn't seem fully impossible merely highly unlikely.

Again, I still prefer to go with the idea that the 'self' in a definitive, eternal sense is unknowable. What this means for me is that while I may get an idea of who I am at any given point an idea which may hold true for a substantial amount of time , because I am constantly going through new experiences and revising who I am relative to my changing world, previously created beliefs of self will invariably become outdated. On this, because I do believe that the amount of time an accurate understanding of self holds true is indeterminable, this entire viewpoint could be considered 'not even wrong'; there's no way to prove or disprove it.

That being said, I don't believe an eternal answer is necessary. As long as one's sense of self is harmonious with current actions, is reconciled with past actions, and is moving towards a personally positive future, then internal peace should be attainable which I believe is a significant goal when asking "Who am I?

It is simply the best answer I have at the moment. I trust inspiration, insights, ideas and hunches. I like to pick up new skills. I get bored easily after mastering skills. I like to use and refine existing skills. I am sometimes accused of being too indecisive.

I am sometimes accused of being too rigid. I talk more than listen. I listen more than talk. If I go to the gym or the library, I find a place by myself and focus on my work. The gym and library are great places to interact with people. I communicate with enthusiasm. I keep my enthusiasm to myself. I am rather private and difficult to "read".

I am rather easy to "read" and know. I think things inside my head. I tend to think out loud. I have many social relationships. I have a few deep, personal relationships. While I walk in the forest, I love to think about all kinds of things and ideas. When I walk in the forest, I love to smell the woods and the feel the breeze on my face. I like to follow a practical approach.

I like to figure things out on my own. I am good at working directly on something. I am good at speculating about all the various options. I am often contented. I am often restless. I am comfortable leaving my options open. I am comfortable after having made a decision. Personal values and people are important to me.

I see the exception to the rule. Principles and rules are important to me. My work efforts are steady and sustained. My work efforts are on-and-off. Group 7 cars were designed more for short-distance sprints than for endurance racing.

Some group 7 cars were also built in Japan by Nissan and Toyota , but these did not compete outside their homeland though some of the Can-Am competitors occasionally went over to race against them.

SCCA sports car racing was becoming more popular with European constructors and drivers, and the United States Road Racing Championship for large-capacity sports racers eventually gave rise to the group 7 Can-Am series. Similar group 7 cars ran in the European Interserie series, but this was much lower-key than the Can-Am.

On-track, the series was initially dominated by Lola , followed by a period in which it became known as the " Bruce and Denny show", the works McLaren team dominated until the Porsche was perfected and became almost unbeatable. After Porsche 's withdrawal, Shadow dominated the last season before Can-Am faded away to be replaced by Formula Racing was rarely close—one marque was usually dominant—but the noise and spectacle of the cars made the series highly popular.

The energy crisis and the increased cost of competing in Can-Am meant that the series folded after the relatively lackluster season; the single-seater Formula series became the leading road-racing series in North America and many of the Can-Am drivers and teams continued to race there.

F's reign lasted for only two years, with a second generation of Can-Am following. This was a fundamentally different series based initially on converted F cars with closed-wheel bodies.

There was also a two-liter class based on Formula Two chassis. Can-Am remains a well-remembered form of racing due to its popularity at one time, the spectacular cars and the lineup of talented drivers. Can-Am cars remain popular in historic racing. Notable drivers in the original Can-Am series included virtually every acclaimed driver of the late s and early s.

Can-Am was the birthplace and proving ground for what, at the time, was cutting-edge technology. Can-Am cars were among the first race cars to sport wings, effective turbocharging , ground-effect aerodynamics, and aerospace materials like titanium. This led to the eventual downfall of the original series when costs got prohibitive, but during its height Can-Am cars were at the forefront of racing technology and were frequently as fast as or even faster around laps of certain circuits than the contemporary Formula One cars.

McLaren cars were specially designed race cars. The Can-Am cars were developments of the sports cars which were introduced in for the North American sports car races. The McLaren M6A also introduced what was to become the trademark orange color for the team. The M6 series were a full aluminum monocoque design with no uncommon features but, for the times, there was an uncommon attention to detail in preparation by the team members.

They were models of reliability. This was followed in by the M8A, a new design based around the Chevy big-block V8 "rat motor" as a stressed member of the chassis. McLaren went "in house" with their engine shop in McLaren so dominated the seasons that Can-Am was often called the "Bruce and Denny show" after the drivers who very often finished first and second.

There was even a one-two-three finish at the Michigan International Speedway on September 28, McLaren first, Hulme second, and Gurney third. Nine months later, Bruce McLaren lost his life, on June 2, , at Goodwood when the rear bodywork of his prototype M8D detached during testing resulting in a completely uncontrollable car and a fatal high-speed crash. McLaren continued to succeed in Can-Am after Bruce's death with a number of other drivers, but the works Porsche effort with a turbocharged flat engines and a high development budget meant that they could not keep up with the Team McLaren went on to become a several time F1 champion and is still a part of that series.

It did win the Road Atlanta race, when the more powerful cars fell out.

Question: "How can I know if I am in love?" Answer: Love is a very powerful emotion. It motivates much of our lives. We make many important decisions based on this emotion, and even get married because we feel that we are “in love.” This may be the reason about half of all first marriages end in divorce. When I get on Facebook, people can see that in the chat window and try to chat. I don't want anybody to know when I am online, so I can pick and choose wh.
