Oh. Well...I suppose we all can mistake for someone for dead when they're really not, right? Well, no, what I meant to say is....-YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT :D.
Truth first.

I am deeply honoured to have such wonderful caring and loving social networking friends. Thank you R.Z., freelion, JohnAdams and other forum members..

...but this simple philosopher ain't yet on his death bed, good folks!

Reminds me the guy you may have read about in a book, or seen at the movies. He was shipwrecked on an uninhabited desert Island for 4 years. On returning home he discovered everybody 'presumed' he was dead.

Some ideas are taken to be true on the basis of probability:
"Ed Howes (also known as Contemplative), I presume?" -oops, got it wrong. In 1871 Africa, the journalist and explorer Henry Morton Stanley got it right: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"

R.Z., you originally presumed that 'Contemplative' was Ed Howes's username. An intent for presumption is a bad intent. However your intent of 'loving care' for me, and expressed by your post on the forum, is good intent. The presumption came from your head. To presume is negative thought. The care came from your heart, and loving care for someone is positive thought.

A reciprocal reaction of your kindhearted 'good' action was the seen reply responses from forum members expressing their condolences and experiences of 'Contemplative' (Thank you John Adams and freelion!). Another reaction was the unseen responses of other folks after they read your original post.

Of course the reciprocal reaction of your wrong presumption action was my seen replied response to correct you. Another reaction was, maybe, the unseen responses of some folks that might have said: "I thought Contemplative was that Buddhist guy, named John, from England. What's all this him being Ed Howes from AZ, USA?"

Well, there is good news about this, folks. It was all meant to happen! At this very time of great need in Ed Howes's life the help, care and love for him has been manifested in magnificent quantity.

R.Z. we all know your miss identification of me was unintentional. But the end result is humour and fun about the confusion caused by wrong presumption, and surprising help for our forum friend Ed Howes, in his hour of much need, who would have otherwise been completely forgotten by us.

I now rest our case, balance is restored. Ed Howes now has our extra supporting get well wishes and prayers. The balancing mechanisms of Creation can be a wonderful Divine everyday experience!

Also, I not so sure that Facebook has helped out much these days in locating/Identifying people...which might be a good thing for all of us...Lol...

Facebook and Twitter are owned by the NSA.
They should re-named Farcebook and Twatter
