Heh, I've enjoyed various different phrasings over time, such as "You have learned Feelings" and "You have mastered the skill: Relationships" :D

Ever since the begining of time the almighty green owl has taught us how to live and what is the world and its existence. I wouldn't have it otherwise.

You are no longer a parcel of vain strivings tied by a chance bond together...

Exactly! And I never even realized the state I was in, or wasn't in ;)

Does reaching "Level 1 in Existence" mean Duo finally gave you back your life?

October 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MBa5i

That might be level 5. Level 1 is hard to put into words, but it's like you suddenly have this awareness of where all the cats and dogs are sleeping. You find all the lost books and cell phones. The office is empty, and yet somehow not empty. . . .

Korean taught me that cats are not food. And Thanks to the Arabic course I now know that my television is in my lion.

I won't even ask how you turn the television on ;)

@hoges: no, when you get to level one in existence Duo does not give you your life back. Au contraire. You will be even more seized by the necessity of reaching level two, and so on.

That depends which path you took, O Grasshopper.

In the Latin course, you turn into a parrot, if the weasels haven't got you by then.

I can only modestly echo Juliet's "vain strivings" post. Be well, strive on!

That was a line from a Thoreau poem

It ends, ill paraphrase, “and now i see i was not plucked for naught, but by a kind hand brought alive to a strange place”

Ok, so you got that going for you. (which is nice)

Just in case you can't watch the video;

.... So I say hey Lama, hey how about a little something, you know, for the effort.

He says, "Yeah but there won't be any money. But when you die, on your death bed you will receive total consciousness."

"So I got that going for me, which is nice."

which language tree did you get that from?!

October 6, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MBa5i

Mandarin. And it happened just around the time @catubibu got me looking at poetry of the Tang Dynasty. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Wow... Im disappointed you only did 2 levels of Japenese... I have an excuse. I started last night at 8...

October 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MBa5i

Wow, two levels in 24 hours, nice!

I'm focusing on Mandarin now because many of my neighbors and coworkers speak it. But I like to go into the Japanese tree now and then to compare.

I started Japanese about 2 months ago, only a level 9
