"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

-- something not understood or beyond understanding -- whatever resists or defies explanation -- profound, inexplicable, or secretive quality
-- a religious truth that one can know only by revelation and cannot fully understand

In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth
the humble reasoning of a single individual. I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
-Galileo Galilei

Textbooks present science as a noble search for truth, in which progress depends on questioning established ideas. But for many scientists know from bitter experience that disagreeing with the dominant view is dangerous - especially when that view is backed by powerful interest groups.

The trouble with the world is
that the stupid are cocksure
and the intelligent are full
of doubt.

-- Bertrand Russell

For literally years people had thought that, by making me clever, they had helped me out. I became a snob and sneeringly aloof from dirty jobs and dirtier people. Something like magic folk and muggles. Such beliefs nearly ruined me. That is just one reason why I argue for a world wide process of dumbing down intellectual property and total redistribution of world assets, property and wealth.

When all are magic folk, the heavy lifting will have been done. But is such a Utopian potential a useful preoccupation in a pragmatic world?

Pearls before swine, and all that.

Ultimately, everyone becomes Buddha. So maybe patience is the order of the day, every day, amidst the spiritual schizophrenia of the human condition.

The ultimate mystery is death...

...but in our short lives, I personally am happy I can't figure it all out. That's the beauty, and a conscious excuse for suspended belief. It's humbling, but also convenient to be NOT all-knowing.

Personally, I'm thrilled to be mystified.

One thing I've learned regarding knowing: context cracks the whip.

I feel that simpler truths that link me fraternally to other amazing people get our job done more effectively. Our job: 'Go to the people
Live among them
Learn from them
Love them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have:
But of the best leaders
When their task is accomplished
Their work is done
The people all remark
“We have done it ourselves.'

Really, superior people in the opinion of Lao Tsu possessed a special quality he named Te.

Nowadays its te this te that - has it helped? The fuck it has. Lao Tse is a dead git which he thoroughly deserves.

Can't help but wonder what he'd have to say about you, Z.

The mind reels...

I'll take that as a 'maybe' or as Twit once said - 'Zoro, you loony get.'

I like the stuff about utopia Indi.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
