Hands up and all say 'aye' if you are Irish and believe that means we are a unique race ..

Wow, just read through this entire thread, what was the question again?
Land of Saints and Scholars, hmmm...does that mean that some are saints and some scholars, or is it, both saints and scholars? Don't see much evidence and what little l do see is diminishing...
Famine? there has never been a food shortage in this country, the famine is a myth, there was a shortage of potatoes. That is not to say that people were not starving, but it needs to be recognised that this land has never failed her people. Here's a question! Has lreland's people ever failed her?
Lets make this interesting and add a bit of depth! A Game: Mirrors, A light mirror shows you something good about yourself when you look in it. A dark Mirror shows you something bad about yourself when you look in it. Now lets look at the light and dark mirrors of the lrish psyche, both the male and the female! What do you see?

Where's a good place for a single girl to visit in Ireland?

It depends what you are looking for, Cities or landscape? The east side of lreland is, well, tamed in terms of the land, you could say it is manicured, the west side is wilder, the further north you go the wilder it gets!
To hell or to Connaght was Cromwell's saying, so connaght has had the least colonisation, war etc. Still some wilderness up in Donegal, if you could call it wilderness!
The Dubs will no doubt be shouting about this!

Are we our body or our mind?

The term that needs to be defined in this Question "we"? l is ego in all instances, regardless what we like to tell ourselves. lf one believes in the continuation of life beyond the death of the body, then whatever continues was also there before. l personally think it is hilarious that no one seems to recognise that there is a new religion on this planet, it's called Science! How many scientific experiments have you personally carried out? You get your information from a book and believe it with blind faith! It has more rules than any of the religions, and the rules keep changing. lt is just as restrictive in terms of possible experiences. lt is cold and sterile. Sterile is defined as "without life". All this is like the blind arguing over what red looks like! Are we our body or our mind? is not either or question, we are neither, we are both, we are more than just these two components, we are human and we have no idea what that is, or what that means!
