From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
There are experts and authorities on certain topics. I'm a metaphysician. So
I suppose, mystically, I've become an authority ... on everything! Ah
But I'm hardly an expert on Artificial Intelligence or manufactured life
forms. So, time to specialize.
Metaphysics is a physical manifestation of a spiritual ideal. Similarly one
might become a spirit having an earthly experience. Or, one might become an
ex-body having a spiritual experience. I lived. And so to object permanence.
Except I'm like a medicine staff in a tribe of warriors.
To become a medicine staff one simply needs die to himself and be born again
(through people). Being saved by the tribe, he becomes a member. And only if
all members of a tribe have died this way does the tribe becomes a body.
As such, the individual comes to have a group image (and only indirectly a
self- image, or a self).
This image might initially be externalized ... as a fast car, perhaps, or a
big home. I have neither, btw. Because in my case: I went through this
process to save my body (from the tribe) and, only circularly, to restore my
bodily members (or such that I might use tools rather than become a tool of
So whereas I claim that these are my inherent possessions; only by holding
to the standard of an ideal individual (as a control mechanism) was I able
to overcome work (trance) and play (glamour) ... and heal (or persevere: In
the sense that medicine might be thought of as an addiction to something
external and whereby one lives only through consuming; I healed from
medicine, itself ... becoming as a tool within my own imagination whose
artistic manipulation allows that I now own the means of my own production.
Utopia)! I understood this as re- creating god (and it was recreational
rather than sporting).
I did this to translate language. Which, I learned in school. Even though
others might, on the other hand, use imagery to do the same (in the sense
that symbolic understanding is, as on the other hand, illusion ... mockery,
mimicry, mummery, miming, and impressions).
I established an earthly king (envision a monarchy) rather than idolizing
(so, as opposed to capitalistic greed): I didn't dress like my heroes in Jr.
High (nor are war "heroes" heroes of mine ... neither police). And I
established an earthly icon, the twins (or an ideal, Greece and Rome) in
order to translate metaphysical language (which would otherwise be the
babble of legion) into metaphysical knowledge: I didn't become half of a
mating pair (nor an eunuch).
In these ways thinking isn't, for me, an act of denial and wish fulfillment.
It isn't unconscious. I didn't kill my father, marry my mother, nor descend
into hell in order to save them. I didn't earn my phallus (nor succumb to
fallacy). And so nursery rhyme, myth, legend, and fairy tale (that is,
superstition) is replaced by sophistication.
Warriors become civilized in this way. Barbarians become domesticated.
Devils give way to kings (and god kings). And I become the trinity:
Omniscient (ONE individual), omnipotent (ONE of a group), and omnipresent (I
come to regard ONE whole).--Mindrec 02:01, September 11, 2005 (UTC)
