I have seen video evidence to the contrary.

You can't say it better.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm guessing this is like an animal version of the death by a thousand cuts, incredibly slow and annoying, on top of everything else.


Also, that would've made that cheesy Rolling Stones so much better Yes

As Kafka said, "Hell is other people". That has many meanings, not least that you can't fully know yourself but for the judgments of others ... but it also means you have to live with their expectations and needs but they can't take on your burdens, or you theirs. Not really. We pretend it helps. It doesn't. The only person who has ever even partially understood me, is me. The only person who has never knowingly let me down, is me. The only person who has ever carried my burdens, or even really usefully cared about them, is me.

Maybe this is another reason for the popularity of gods, they have alleged super-powers that our fellow humans do not. Alas ... another illusion.

I've tried so many times to express this. This captures the nuance I could never quite put together. Thumbsup

"You've signed up to the wrong social contract... the one drafted by the people who make and sell the fear and the hopelessness and of course, the guns... the one that perpetuates the myth that frontier justice is the only justice.

You can escape it. But first you have to realise that it's a state of mind... your mind."

It would be a pleasure to meet you someday, and have a drink together on a Sunday afternoon. Here's to frivolous wishes.
