Local Aphorisms : Plus Commentaries

Aphorism
Stop trying to be Happy!
Commentary
i'm just sick of seeing people struggling to be happy... this is particularly endemic here in Hawai'i, but i suspect that it is just a serious everywhere, although, possibly not as immoderate in other places.
What i would like to see replacing this vain exertion to verify ones existence, is to accede to the futility of your bailiwick & allow your angels to arrange your soiled affairs without your insistent obtruding.

Aphorism
Only Atheists will be allowed into Heaven.
Commentary
It seems to me that Gawd will want to fill Heaven with only the Noblest Souls and to do so, S/he has arranged for this World to be Mislead by various Religious Dogma's that are specifically designed to bring forth the most mealy minded, fatuous pedestrians, by insisting that the only way to get into Heaven is to perform the most specious, unreasonable, self destructive & socially ruinous acts that may be reasonably expected of them... such as mutilating your genitals, persecuting the weak & defenseless, sticking your head in a bucket, or espousing pure gibberish...
Anyone that betrays this agenda will be summarily sent into eternal damnation...!
Thus; Only the bravest, courageous & dauntless that avert themselves from the damp masses & social norms predicated by the established orders, will be worthy of that which they have rejected, to seek a greater, or true provenance of justice & knowledge.

Aphorism
Are we living in A Universe that is so Cruel;
That it allows us to be Aware that we are Robots?
Commentary
This is a rhetorical question ( ? ) that tacitly wonders how it can be that we are able to be aware that we are in fact 'Robots'...
It must necessarily be that either we are living in a universe that is That cruel,
Or-- that we are Not robots... ( ? )
For either to be true;
The Universe, as we experience it,
Must be seriously divergent from how it really exists.

Aphorism
The Golden Rule only Encourages Masochists to Abuse Others.
Commentary
When this first occurred to me, i thought that it applied to a reasonably small subset of The Damp Masses with Severe Personality Disorders...
But Now-- i'm thinking that it applies to nearly everyone, since everyone that is trying to be good,
Is aware that they fall short of their personal ideals--
And consequently; Feel that they need to be Punished...
So that they effectively become Masochists.
Then of course; Those that Don't want to be good, they're going to abuse others for the shear joy of it.

Aphorism
The Public Schools aren't Failing to make Children Smart,
They are Succeeding in Making them Stupid.
Commentary
This is based to some degree on my personal experiences with The Public School System,
But also: i feel strongly that this ties in with the idea that 'Science is Broken'...
In such a way that 'Someone', 'Somewhere' has decided that 'Smart People' are 'Dangerous' and that in order to Save the World from ( ? ) ( Our own Brains perhaps...??? ) There needs to be a continuous and unrelenting program of Stupidification imposed upon The Damp Masses.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Science is Broken
Commentary
It is certainly the case that certain popular notions that are just plain, tautologically, wrong! are being routinely disseminated upon the The Damp Masses...
But why is this...?
Is it part of the Stupidification Program, or is it that Otherwise Smart People are just as susceptible to dumb ideas as anyone else...
( i'm beginning to think that while many people think that our technology proves that we're 'Smart', Humanimals are in fact, amazingly stupid. And that Cerebral Tricks, such as; Language & Applied Trial & Error, have conspired through an Invisible Hand of Social Constructivism, to make us appear much more adroit at Sentience than we rightly Deserve... ( ? ) )

Aphorism
Mathematics is The Worst Enemy of Seeking The Truth.
Commentary
While much of The Physical Universe may be described, & Quantified, using Mathematics--
It is quite another thing to use this Principle to Work Backwards, Using Mathematics to justify, or Prove, the Validity of some Crazy, Cockamamie Idea...!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Literacy is a Crutch.
Commentary
When Humanimals were Preliterate, ( And PreIndustrialized ) we communicated Orally, and this is a step down from the still more 'Natural' transmission of Ideas in their purest form, as Ideas themselves, which may only be possible in a Disincarnate State...( ? )
But within a local Sense; The Oral Medium is the Definitive Solution for Humanimal Communication...
And now that we have a Technology that supports this form of Conceptual Storage and Promulgation, we are able to abandon our intermediate use of Books and The Alphabet as a Repository of Literature.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
The Taboo of Nudism is a Refutation of Our Elemental Existence.
Commentary
Isn't it curious that there is a nearly universal taboo against nudism, which is undoubtedly our natural state. It is a denial of our fundimental ( true ) Animal Nature.
By draping the oily skins of dead animals over ourselves, our religious ancestors somehow were able to assert that they were Not animals...???

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
You can Run; But you can't run to The Moon.
Commentary
Even within an Infinite Continuum of Recursively Nested Realities, There are Delimiters that restrict our conceptual Freedoms of Swirliness.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
The Trouble with Cloud Watching, Is that you can Only see what you Recognize.
Commentary
New ideas are invariably old ideas seen from a new angle.
All Truths that we will ever know; are available to us right now, right here.
You don't have to 'Go Someplace' to find them,
All you have to do: Is Look!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Everything is Wrong.
Commentary
On the first tier of Examination; Everyone is lying to us, about everything.
On the second tier; Everything that we can learn is a lie.
On the third tier-- The Idea of Truth Itself; is an Illusion.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
As True as Elephants.
Commentary
While we may exist as a Screen Saver for the People One Dimensional Reality Up from us...
There are things that we commonly think of as 'True'...
One of these things is Mathematics... Partly because while we can easily 'Grasp' that 2 Apples + 2 more Apples = 4 Apples... as Undeniable... But also because the whole of Mathmatics is True by Definition.

It might be noted at this time that while 2 + 2 = 4 is UnImaginiably Not True, is it equally easy to Intuitively Express a Certainty that 272638386 + 8476826726 = 8749465112 ???
There are some things that we simply 'Believe' are true...
Such as; That there are Elephants in Africa.
Or that there is a place called Africa, or that there are Elephants.
If we are living in a Screen Saver Reality; Then the answer to all these questions is; No.
Comparitively Speaking...
Or-- We can simply redefine what we mean by 'Exist' or 'True'.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
I want to go do the Bug Things.
Commentary
i have no idea what this means, but it keeps running through my head!
Alternately: Go do the Bug Things.

Or-- I don't want to Bug Things.
( ??? )
i am thinking that maybe these 'Phases' were 'Implanted' during an Alien Abduction and their meaning will become clear to me as some later time...???
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
I am trying to be Good.
Commentary
The trouble is; i have no idea what 'Good' is.
Philosophically: i don't even belive that there is a 'Good' to aspire to.

There are only 'Regional' or 'Local'; 'Goods', that are good for some,
But invariably Bad for Others.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
As Serious as Foot Odor.
Commentary
When bad things happen, some pundants will oftentimes ask:
'How could God let this happen?'

The things that Gawd thinks are Serious &/or Important are quite different from what we think are important.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Magick is the Hidden Latch Key.
Commentary
Harry Potter & his Ilk never seem to get around to explaining where Magick comes from...
But-- i'm thinking that maybe it was inserted into this layer of reality by The Xi .6 Controllers as an Emergency Back Door in case they ( The Programmers ) were ever trapped within it...!
Thus; These routines that they added would be easily accessed, If only you knew how---
And with them; You would have Unimaginable Power that would Circumvent all the normal Physical Laws that The Reality Generator usually takes so seriously... ( ? )

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
The More We Mutate; The Faster We can Evolve.
Commentary
Even if you don't adhere to the strick rules of Darwinian Evolution;
It's certainly true that you can't change for the better unless you make changes to begin with...
The more you change, the better statistical chance you'll have to eventually stumble upon something that works for you... ( ??? )

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Smoking doesn't make you Equal to Men; It makes you as Stupid as Men.
Commentary
Feminist Poster...???
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
If Jesus were here right now, He'd kick your Ass...!
Commentary
T-Shirt...???
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Do Not try to Stare Down The Giant Mechanical Ants.
Commentary
Essentially this may be interpreted in two ways;
One is that it's predicting that the world as we now know it will be overrun with Giant Mechanical Ants, and that you shouldn't exercise unnecessary Hubris arountd them...
You're Doomed anyways; but why make it more difficult for yourself...
The Second Interpreetation is that There are Things; Essentially Unkowable Things, that are Beyound your ability to control them, and that you need to do nothing more than conceed to this point.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Is it Bad to want Justice too much?
Commentary
i think that in most cases, this means, or generally refers to a form of 'Justice' that is not anything like the ideal forms of justice that Noble hamsters espire to...??? Such as when; Knowing that someone is going to burn in Hell for all Eternity; You want them to suffer even more...
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Gratuitous Nobility is the Showboat of Scoundrels.
Commentary
Simply another variation on 'Patriotism is the Last Refuge of The Cad.'
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
No Happiness; But sometimes, Unhappiness helps.
Commentary
Russian Proverb.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Few people have the imagination to be genuinely Evil--
But Incompetence & Disorganized Malfeasance are often percieved as evidence for depraved iniquity.

Commentary
Most people-- The Damp Masses --Are simply & Blissfully, Wallowing in the puddles of Amorality...
Morality; and the awareness of Right & Wrong, are really very tricky things to fully understand.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
What might be keeping us from seeing The Ultimate Truth; are Colours.
Commentary
The true reality is really just one thing...
But colours make everything look like it's divided up inot parts.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
If; by tomorrow, you still believe what you have seen today--
Then; you will understand.
Commentary
They say that seeing is believing, but people see the stripped down, naked truth everyday--
But then; By the next day, they've either forgotten all about it, or refuse to believe it.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
One of the greatest skills you may ever master is;
Determining why someone is doing something stupid.
Commentary
It's just too easy to blithly presuppose that everything done in the name of ignorance and stupidity is the activity & residue of Crazy People...
But it is occasionally ( ? ) the case that these actions that are percieved as the work of lunatics,
Are actually the business of reasonable people that have made one misstep, or assumed some axiom that is just plain wrong.
Finding this error in thier thinking, ( often without their cooperation ) is the hallmark of a superior mind.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
Because the universe ( our comparitively; local universe ) is so amazing tiny--
It is surprisingly easy to create novel things;
Inventions, Art, Music or A simple sentence--
That is entirely fresh & unique, having never before been brought into existence.
Commentary
Imagination is not so much thinking of new ideas,
It is realizing that you have done so.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - :: o
Aphorism
"Cogito, ergo sum"
( Latin: "I am thinking, therefore I exist", or traditionally "I think, therefore I am" )
Is a philosophical statement by René Descartes, which became a foundational element of Western rationalism. "Cogito ergo sum" is a translation of Descartes' original French statement: "Je pense, donc je suis", which occurs in his Discourse on Method (1637).
From Wikipedia
Commentary
What is usually assumed from this;
Is that it proves the existence of the soul...!
But aside from the tautological demonstration of existence...
What does it really suggest... Freewill ( no. ) Autonomy ( no. )
Does it even demonstrate cogitation...?
Could a dumb, cleverly programmed robot construct that sentence?
If so; Could it have come about by evolutionary leaking...

"I want to go do the Bug Things."

I don't know what this means, either, but now it keeps running through my mind!
