Seeking to understand that which defies understanding.
Ya know, in terms of reality, consciousness and other fun things, seeking without understanding is fun.
Seeking without understanding is fun.
That's the rule.
Here we have an exception. There is nothing to understand. Perhaps even the subject is unable to understand, or unwilling to admit to understanding.
Time to move on. Although you know, I was perfectly happy to be entertained. It was the observation from Jackie, that rankled me. And I think that is what rankles me in this thread a little as well. While not a victim per se, I don't feel like I went out of my way to engage the subject, but that the opposite is very true and can be exhibited. That some small retaliation is evidence of some demon or major character flaw -- I'm just not sure about. And in truth, I have a pretty thick skin and can let a lot go. But when someone starts to bring my wife into something, purely in a mean and vindictive manner, that's not a personal demon being loosed in me. It's justice. Righteous anger even, to defend someone that is not present and not involved in the discussion.
Stuff for me to ponder here ..
Time to get off my butt and move a little. Yes, you may well hear some moaning and gnashing of teeth.
