We sometimes finding ourselves thinking or saying life is this, or life is that. Yet it very seldom, rarely or never really is as such one thing, but differs from person and circumstance to person and circumstance. But whether happy or sad depends, in the final analysis, on whether people are governed by justice, honesty and right reason or whether they listen and answer to spirit people as higher authority instead.

He has to torture and degrade you in order for you to be his friend, even though, and as it goes without saying, we are neither interested in his philosophy and way of doing things nor his friendship.

When you die, what would you most prefer to transform into? Earth, water, air, or fire?

The unholy three: the one giving the orders, the one acting as administrator, and the one paying for it.

Old music and poetry are like old clothes (but for the spirit rather than the body.)

"I will not allow that machine to be used for criminal purposes." It's a damnable thing these brain torture radios. It really is. I say to him "You don't need those brain torture radios to get by. There is more to you than that. But if you are so completely sure there isn't then you should just go kill yourself. Is there then at last nothing more for you in this life than ruin and perdition? Because there is absolutely no point to what you are doing." To which I would add, if humanity cannot rid itself of brain torture radios then we aren't good for anything except as food for cannibals.

Also "And if you truly feel these brain torture radios do need to be used and go on then you get out of it and let someone else pick up for you where you left off. Why take it all on yourself? Besides even if you wanted to, you cannot afford the luxury or expense of being or becoming a damned soul on your salary." (Turn off those brain torture radios, Mr. Gorbachev, etc.)

Every company or business they have taken over (and where not sold for scrap otherwise) they have more or less turned into junk, of itself or else at least compared to what it was before. What more proof do you need (i.e. that there is Hell behind all these wide-scale corporate mergers and takeovers of the last 30 years)?

If God exclusively relies on you to save the rest of us then we are in big trouble. Even so and this said, do what you can, of course, and don't worry too much about what you can't do.

"Diabolically clever -- Well, for him (i.e. the mental patient) it is certainly. But at least he's doing the wrong thing -- and that's what counts."

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

If, as a practical matter, there is no regular (i.e. flesh and blood) person living or dead, past or present, or famous or unknown, who you could or would not view with scorn and contempt if they somehow and sufficiently offended you, why then should it be any different if they happened to be a spirit person -- whether an angel, ghost, (spirit person) vampire, or even the dreaded and all benevolent Dolby-Surround Sound?

The spectacle of the devil and (orkonic) evil makes life itself seem horrifying. But must the devil be annihilated in order for there to be well being and peace? No, only and simply reduced and limited to a petty level in the wider order of things (and where no criminal violence is allowed him, including brain torture radios and poisoning); and perhaps even at which level he might even be rendered and deemed a positive good. The evil one, one the other hand (and where no criminal violence is allowed him, including brain torture radios, and germ, chemical, and biological warfare), is quite someone and something else and should, I'm sure all pacific and humane persons would agree, have no place among us.

They don't write them like this any more -- One of my all time most favorite Bob Dylan songs, "Changing of the Guards," live from Seattle in 1978 (at the Hec Edmundson Pavilion.) The person who posted this wasn't sure if it was from Seattle 78 but I was both there and also remember later having this very same recording on a "home made" tape for many years (but since had lost it.) The live version of "Changing of the Guards" is much better than the studio cut; as the song is a much more rockin' number than the latter lets on to.

Commander Shore at cards.

Here is a sometimes useful phrase ---

"You mind your own business? You mind your own business for nothing!" (or else "He minds his own business? etc.")

-- that taking into account various possible inflections, intonations, emphases, and pauses can be said or audibly enunciated in quite a variety of different ways, as well as of course possibly elaborated on to good and amusing effect.

If you knew the sorrow of real injustice you would hate real iniquity. But you don't do either! (That mind control works on you like a charm.)

It's funny (or sad) looking at some of those old 60's tv shows, including even shows like "My Three Sons" and "Daniel Boone," how every now and then out of place (and in retrospect fulsome) allusions or tribute of a kind is paid to witchcraft notions. My most favorite recent sighting of such was "Bonanza" (episode "Dark Star" [1960]) where a guest character, Tirza the gypsy girl, says: "You are a rich man, Ben Cartwright...I would have to steal to have so much."

Later Note. After posting the above, I happened to check over at YouTube and found someone has uploaded the very clip (with more); which, in case you might be interested in the cultural genesis of our modern day "Oafmore," you can see at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVaDaED6ElQ

"Don't see me taking this. Because if you do, and you try to tell anyone, no one will listen to you. And they will not listen to you because I have come to an arrangement of one kind or another with them.
"So there, you see...now I have it."

Well, if this is so as he says, then who or what is he hiding from?

And why after all, I asked, do you need a billion, or even a million, or even a hundred thousand dollars to be happy?

"It isn't a matter of happiness," he said. "It's a matter of duty."

There are, in my opinion, two primary reasons why a person would go to or else permit themselves to be crucified or otherwise sacrifice themselves; either to protect and spare the helpless and innocent, or else to rid their own lives of criminal spirit people (including “gods” and “angels”) once and forever -- both precious ends or aims devoutly to be wished.
