Yes, and I'm clearly not like the majority. And in retrospect I never was like the majority even before my rude awakening to reality and sanity. Unlike most people, due to favorable circumstances in the critical formative years of my life, the generally fatal societal enculturation that we're all influenced by never adversely affected the sound development of my brain.cousinbasil wrote:Specifically how do you intend to ensure that you do not end up like the vast majority?
Due to the above factors it simply can't happen. Even if I were to be crucified by a mob.cousinbasil wrote:Just so. Neither will you (leave an Ark behind), I daresay.
This may be so. Especially in light of the fact that there are so very, very few people capable of self-overcoming and being restored to sanity. But I remain hopeful that I'll succeed.
What is freely and at hand seems to be nihilism.And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

'Jew' is an imaginery performance involving a lot of chatter and a bunch of rules like mutilating dickies as Blair succinctly pointed out.
A one trick pony.
A lifelong performance of trying to get the script into shape.
From the first days on this forum it seemed so easy to me to 'identify' the individuals attracted to this destructive thinking, this mechanical, reductive thinking.
mechanical, one-trick pony.
Yes, you've made one and the same post 4,000 times.

One must be highly-sensitive and then become totally dead to the 'self' and all its old conditioned thoughts and ideas in order to come to clearly see the tragic reality of the human condition and be open to understanding others' observations ('demonstrations') of it.

I think it was Ludwig Feuerbach who said one must become totally negative if he's to ever create anything radically new. Which has been my experience also.
It is true that I repeat that one, irritating point. Yet: it is TRUE. Terribly and obviously true.
You MUST defeat that style of thinking! You must---and you CAN!

How about an army of Free-Spirits? Beginning of course with myself. The Captain.
Here we have a Talking Ass and you are griping because his posts are consistent? And he types! The keyboard must be enormous!

But you did say "please" and that goes a long way in my book.
Dennis, you keep coming back to proclaiming everything "empty" and "meaningless." How could I possibly trivialize something that is empty and meaningless?
