people often claim that I think too much, to which I reply if you thought half as much as I did you might not be stupid. so I say to you dear reader or if I am lucky readers, when it comes to people keep your expectations low and trust no one.

not sure who said this "it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than it is to speak and remove all doubt"

or this"never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you senseless with his experience"

I find it best to speak in generalities. for example: I generally don't jump off cliffs without a parachute. this leaves wiggle room which is very important when dealing with devils or gods.

not sure who said this either "those that fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do"

I have never eaten a live baby.....see that's funny because you have to cook them first lolololol

nothing is worse than being stagnant. embrace chaos like you would anything....in moderation.

 just how weird am I. I had a dream where I went to a park and Charlie sheen was doing stand up for a small group of people sitting on some bleachers. and this is the joke I here him tell. "so you have people that say they are women trapped in a mans body. so what happens when two people that are women trapped in a mans body get together. there not gay if they are women are they lesbiens if they have the wrong piping. I propose we call people in this situation gaybiens." no one is the crowd laughed and he tapped his microphone saying is this thing on

The first problem is the word pattern; it does not give the
proper perception so we will use the word design instead. Whether it is random
or intelligent is of no consequence to us. Secondly, reason and sense can be
expressed better by saying causality, action and reaction. Lastly, faith and
reality are also inappropriate for what we are saying we will use the word
perception. So now your equation would be stated as
design-causality-perception. This is inadequate at best. When you talk about
everything being connected this is the perfect example of what you left out.
What came first the chicken or the egg? Like so many of the things we want to
be black and white, connected but separated, the chicken and the egg were born
of each other.  Perhaps we could write it
out as design- causality- perception- causality- design; though this is better
it is still inaccurate. The problem lies in the fact that one can so easily
alter the other; we could go even further and say that as far as the human mind
or soul is concerned you can’t affect one without affecting the other; that may
be stretching it a little too far.(Something to ponder at a later date.) The
key to the universe is perception, what is math but an alternate way of viewing
and expressing the universe. This leads us to the great question that has been
plaguing us for some time. Strength and weakness are born of each other and
based on circumstance; how easy it is for one to become the other with just a
twist.  Like so many things they are born
of each other so how do we properly express that understanding on a daily basis
without having the separation that those labels leave us with. Then we can take
two things like intelligence and stupidity. They are to us more illusion then
reality. To say that an action is stupid or dumb would also be based on
circumstance but the main problem is the labeling of things and people as
either stupid or smart. How, for example, can we say a man that has an I.Q.
fifty seven is retarded when he can paint better than Van Gough? All we can say
is that the world is filled with improper perception that procreates a world of
misunderstanding. The one we like to use best is the word Power. People for
example will say that the president of the United States is the most powerful
man in the world but what is power but the abuse of ones responsibility to
others. The president doesn’t have power to run the country; he has the
responsibility of running it. To do anything that doesn’t relate to that
responsibility is an abuse of that responsibility. That is nothing more than an
example of the improper perception that the world teaches. Power is of no
consequence to those that live up to their responsibility. Do we write down
every offence and its correction in a vain attempt to correct the issue? Do we
start creating new words that will express the meaning of things like strength
and weakness that are not two separate entities but the same thing just viewed
differently through the circumstances of the moment? The “equation” we are
working on now is far too complex to express properly without at least creating
our own language for it. For now we will ponder a way around the language
barrier.

    During 'Philosophy I' we learned that language might be a very personal experience. I blogged about it before. Recently they changed the label from Police Service to Police Force; the latter with all its negative connotations. The philosopher Donald Davidson has noted that malapropisms show how complex the process is by which the brain translates thoughts into language. Psychology: Steven Connor suggests that mondegreens are the result of the brain's constant attempts to make sense of the world by making assumptions to fill in the gaps when it cannot clearly determine what it is hearing. Connor sees mondegreens as the "wrenchings of nonsense into sense. {Often we only hear what we wish to..}
