In the future, man will be able to instantaneously publish giant monolithic blocks of text without saying much of anything. Whoa, the future is now.
I think it goes over your head, Carl, but there is such a thing as multiplicity of purpose in writing and in communication. Also, humor and irony have a unique function, as does fantasy or fiction (for example, science-fiction). And, one can communicate 'truthful things' through pure, invented fiction, and as well through humor and irony. You may or not be aware that Terrence McKenna (among numerous others but I am a little familiar with Terrence McKenna's writing, kind of far out) believes (believed since he's dead) that humanity IS arriving at that moment in evolution when it WILL
re-engineer itself. True, it is doubtful 'it' will re-engineer itself into a walnut-sized brain enclosed in a coconut-like shell, but it really does seen both possible and likely that some modification will occur, and it may be pretty radical.
(It was Terrence McKenna's opinion that human consciousness and consciousness throughout the gallaxy was jump-started by the psilosybe mushroom spore. He sees this 'being' as an Extraterrestrial, a visitor from a long way off. The spore is so light and yet so resistant that it could
make its way to the upper atmosphere and then, through some accident, get released from the Earth's gravitation and 'wander' in space. Then, after a long voyage, find its way to another terrestrial home. True, the idea is far-fetched, but it does conform to a model that already exists: the mushroom spore can and does travel all the world over as it is. The mushroom and other hallucinogens have been used by many different cultures and could have been the causal factor for certain new vistas in human awareness. It leads of course to many questions. Can you see now how the 'monolithic block' I wrote reflects some of those ideas, asshole?
. I'm certainly not claiming perfection
but I have my own way of working with ideas).
. Will you permit me to say that I think your attempts at 'humor' completely fail? Take for example your Bozo thread. It is not at all humor because it is so heavy-handed, it actually communicates a kind of under-the-surface 'violence', a mean-spiritedness. It is like the 'violence' of your point is placed before any lightness of humor. No part of it is really to be laughed at, it is a blunt and didactic display. There is no grace in it.
Do you think, Carl, you are an emulatable writer on this forum? What sort of a view do you have of yourself? What is the purpose, really, of your hounding of people whose posts you don't like, a common tendency of yours? It is a question I have had for some time, and one worthy of consideration. You have often said that you have a 'purpose', and your purpose and chosen is to show people things you want them to see, and I admit that from time to time you succeed in this. But I only suggest to you that it is almost always with this 'heavy hand', a kind of mean-spiritedness. Why is your writing inflected with such a 'vibe'? What I get from 95% of what you write is the residue of bad feeling, anger, frustration and other unpleasant residues.
In addition to that, you rarely if ever originate ideas or even topics. (The wretched Bozo topic notwithstanding). I never feel I receive ideas from you. Mostly what I get from your writing is bitterness and strange anger.
So listen, you frustrated jerk-off. Will you do me a wee favor? If you don't like my posts, pass them by. Do not pay attention to them. I am not at all interested in your commentary about them that reflect and express your fucked-up psychology. It is not as though I am influenced by what you write. What you write, and the way you communicate it, for me represents failure
Do you understand where I am coming from?
