Question by Heyle Jackson: What is the meaning of the poem “Three Passions” by Bertrand Russell?
If you don’t know it, here it is:

Three Passions

Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering [of humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts [of people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.

I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.
This has been my life; I found it worth living.

- Bertrand Russell

Please do not give me a summary, I already found it online.
What I’m looking for is the deeper meaning of it in a paragraph or more :)

Question by Adrian L: I have three bachelor degrees; What will happen to me if I join the military?
I have three degrees in criminal justice, neuroscience, and psychology, and i’m thinking about joining the army.
Can anyone give me some good advice?
ermm…well to one of the answers….i am not 30 years old…..
There is something called “triple majoring” now in universities, and that was how i received my degrees.

I just had to give up my summers and winters and all the fun opportunities in college to earn them.

So, do you suggest that i go on and continue my graduate studies for law or medicine? or, should i consider the military as an option?

Consciousness
by inju

Question by Lisa W: What do you think are three things necessary (besides life or a brain) for human consciousness?
I’m doing a project and want to know what everyone thinks are three things necessary (besides life and a brain) for consciousness. Preferably human consciousness. If you feel as if there’s more, or actually know if there is a factual list of things that are necessary, then feel free to post more. I’d like the answers to be serious, but funny things are alright as well.

Our evolution has allowed us to recognize our existence.
Our need to survive has forced our evolution.
We now ask ourselves, why?
Our brain is extremely complex.
The brain would be useless without our five senses to load in information.
Consciousness is the state of being aware of what is going on around you.
The senses allow this.
I know we all feel there is more to it than that.
A soul perhaps?
This is an extra sense.
The brain likes a complete picture.
When there is none, it will complete it.
This is where alot of interesting things happen.
It’s called imagination.

All living things need to survive. We all will change to do so.

In Things Near and Far Machen wrote: It was in the early spring of 1894 that I set about the writing of the said “Three Impostors,” a book wh
