A Soul Man’s Plane Thoughts While Flying To Colorado

While on a plane flying to Colorado Springs, I pondered the meaning of life.  These are some of the thoughts that I wrote down high above Missouri and Kansas.

I am a being with genuine, non-artificial intelligence.  I can think what I choose, not just what has been programmed into me by nature or by communication. 

I am not a living machine carrying a neck-top computer encased in my cranium.  I’m a soul man!

The thoughts I think, I think.  They are not just produced by the information processing of my brain.  I have a mind.  I am a me, living in my body — my earth suit.  I am an intangible being incarnated in this material world.

Yet, I am not the only one.  Anybody with normal human consciousness and intelligence perceives my statements about me to be also true about them, too.  (Even if they should deny my statements, they live like these ideas are true.)

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
