I can be a sour and sarcastic old cynic
often sometimes. True~! But my heart and intentions are as pure as the driven snow, regardless of appearances.
thank God(s) that’s over and we can get on with it.
I promised Scottie a refresher on the Basic Tools of Thought—summarised as bullets here but expanded further down—
Everything must either be,
nothing can both be and not-be
—simple enough if you use ‘be’ to represent ‘exist’ (either physically or as concepts).
Which then leads us to the mind-bender’s* worst nightmare:
CONTRADICTIONS DO NOT EXIST
(actually, strictly speaking, they cannot exist). Read on …
- if you find an apparent contradiction
- look to the premises, because
- one of them (at least) is wrong.
And that’s it. Lesson complete.
Full ahead all engines and damn the torpedoes. No?
No. That YOU can think for yourself and spot contradictions all over the place doesn’t mean anyone else can, or will. You now have to be very careful.
I was told once by a genuine Crank that—
In the Land of the Blind
the one-eyed man is King.
The two-eyed a monstrosity
—and from memory ‘monstrosities’ often got burned at the stake. Brrrr … which is why thinkers need be careful. CLUE: it’s never a good idea to argue with the man holding a gun.
SO IF IN DOUBT
or even if not in doubt: always look for contradictions. If you find one (okay, when you find …) check your own safety before pointing them out.
too is a favourite peeve of mine. This is how people get what they want at your expense. Mind control (MC) doesn’t necessarily mean implants in the brain. MC simply means someone else getting you to do what they want, often without you realising.
is Mind Control—do you really believe in spooks in the sky watching your every move with a mind to consigning you to eternal hellfire (or endless sex with gorgeous houris)?
If you do … you are being milked—whichever of the unlimited unique pathways to Salvation it is**.
* Mind-bender = someone seeking to control others.
** You missed it, no? Unlimited means ‘lots of’—unique means ‘one only’.
