The proverbial moron. Oh, sure. Hon hon hon!
One of the things I've recently and fairly often tried to do in my posts to this forum is to convey what I mean to say as concisely as possible so that it encapsulates an element of absurdity and truth that leads to a wider perspective. This could also be described as me attempting to convey points that I find meaningful while simultaneously sounding as stupid as possible. I think this a situation that merits such a response, and I'm going to give you what you want, but not the way you want it.
How do you penetrate the mind of the other? You have to get inside of it, wholly without the consent of your opponent. It must be done in such a way that your message is embedded so deeply into their own thinking that they cannot help but acknowledge the thrust of your argument when they regard their own worldview. You must penetrate that worldview despite their wish that it not be so, and leave it pregnant to blossom into your own.
For a higher purpose.
Remember: The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions. You can't unread what has been read, and every attempt to abort it from your mind just leads right back to it.
Didn't the Buddha say something about attached love ultimately leaving us disappointed? Turn that shit down, too!We seem to be enthralled in a collective psychotic episode, each playing their role, all of them, every single one, a victim, but not just in terms of circumstance, but right down in their souls. I want to quote Leonard Cohen, saying "Love is the only engine of survival," but he sings it so morosely, without hope.
Or figuratively blow it up with transcendence so that the explosions don't become literal?The only approach that has ever worked when this paradigm has played itself out into a sclerotic script - in this case, moron march with torches and other morons engage, either in baiting a beat down, in which the cell phone footage displays the torch carrying moron's depravity, or, if the antifa out number the torch bearers, they beat down the torch bearers - is to transcend.
Turn that shit down.
The dude abides."Tune in, turn on, drop out."
