Self-Examination

I've been reading "The Schrödinger's Cat Trilogy" By Robert Wilson. He suggests that one of the biggest problems of humanity is (to paraphrase a paragraph) that deep down inside, we are all afraid that if anyone knew what we are REALLY thinking or feeling, that they would catch us at being "no good shits," and that most of our mental/ emotional effort is to keep from getting caught. Any thoughts?

I believe everything we do and say is a repetition of what has already been done or said before. The only way to change this would be absolutely true to oneself. This would create what is perceived by society as madness. Society dictates all which is good and bad. I don't agree with a lot of it but prefer to remain outside the asylum and do as I am told (most of the time).

Hah, thought you were talking about paraphrasing paragraphs - closer to the asylum today.

I agree we are actually "no good shits". This fact can be proven when we are tired with less mental energy or ability to control. Our true emotions and thoughts then surface as eruptions. We also feel relief afterwards whether the result is 'good' or 'bad' because it is 'truth' (knew there was a reason for explaining what good, bad and truth meant before)

It's a matter of choice in explanation of what 'good' means. Fake Anonymous is using the term 'good' from 'Society’s' definition which is only another word to define. Other words like 'loser', 'asshole' and 'scumbag', are defined within THAT definition.

To anonymous (no, not the lovely "anonymous" herself, I mean someone who posted anonymously) While I agree whole heartedly that M.M. was a "total asshole scumbag," I'd rather respect the privacy of the other person involved & not bring up her buisness here. Email me, and I'll happily bitch about the scumbag and other issues.

Need I define the 'lovely' word? IT MEANS NICE!

It's probably why the blatant comics of people like Robert Crumb are so popular - that glimpse into the weird ugliness of someone else's mind.

Is this the Robert Wilson who cowrote the Illuminati trilogy?
