Bullshit - Rant F.U.C.K.
« on: September 25, 2005, 07:56:19 am »
Eat a third and drink a third and leave the remaining third of your stomach empty. Then, when you get angry, there will be sufficient room for your rage.
-Babylonian Talmud

There comes a point when you finally allow yourself to see the bullshit.  It's all there, arrayed infront of you.  Some of it in nice patterns trying (but failing abysmally) to point to something better.  Most of it just lays there looking like bullshit.  You constantly add in your own load of it, along with everyone else.  Here, there is no mind, only reaction.  Here, there is no better, only the same boring, dull.

You complain about it, but by doing so you're just adding to it.  Bullshit, you see, is the best of the meme's.  You may think certain religions are good at it, but nothing is a better meme then bullshit.  Bullshit is eternal and forever.  You will never get rid of it.  It's simply not possible.

Sometimes, someone rubs bullshit in your face.  The first time you can ignore it.  The second time you can ignore it.  Eventually it comes to the point that you can't ignore it any more.  You have to play the game you thought you were above (because somehow you're better then everyone else), and rub bullshit in everyone else's face.  You play for awhile, sometimes a long while, and then retire from the arena, tired and able to take more before you're forced to dish more out.  You laugh for awhile, cause you feel like you're allowed at this point.

Then, the cycle repeats it's self.  Sometimes you've grown more mature, and you're in the arena a much shorter time then before.  Sometimes, you've grown more immature, and you're in the arena for much longer, attempting to master the craft of shit slinging.

One day, if you're lucky you'll never have to go back in.  You'll have enough self knowledge, and self control, to ignore it.  Lucky you.

Shit happens.  Either you make it happen, or it happens to you.  Or, much more often, both.

Bullshit is a sort of meta-meme. That is, a meme whose subject material is other memes. And yes, it never goes away - whatever goes nowhere, goes there. So in another sense, it's the anti-meme. (Of course, purists out there will complain that it's not really a meme at all. But that just makes it true, false, and meaningless.  :) )

It's also definitely like most other very-high-level things - you can deny it, disprove it, and escape, but to where? There isn't any "outside" - it's like trying to escape the universe. You just come in at another angle, and you feel yourself in deeper than ever.

(Yes, this is the same point that I was making over at Synaptyx's place. Roger thinks it is "RUBBISH" itself - AKA bullshit. Which just goes to prove my point. Anti-bullshit = Bullshit.)

Nice rant, Zurtok.

No dear, this is what we call Psychosis.  It's not an art, but it sure as hell can be fun.

Well, you know, awhile before you came along I *was* the Prognosticator of Asshattery.

Of course, I'm also the one who wrote the rant about "Fake Discordians" but, you don't want to hear that, because that might make you "unorigonal" or something.

You are SOOOOOOO cute when you're bullshitting.  Hunny, it's almost enough to make me fuck you...just like that PM I sent you.

And, I don't know that I coined it, but I do know that YOU didn't come up with it (as you keep trying to convince everyone you did, so far as I can tell).

Now, come here Hunny and give us a kiss.  With your lips, dear, not that sledgehammer.  And, if I were you, I wouldn't get your ass too close to me, you never know what I might do with it.

 :lol:

Yeah right, I'm way out of your league. I could get a way better guy than you fucko. And when the fuck did I ever claim to coin anything? For a "perfectionist" you're failing pretty fucking hard.

I always say that if I have to climb a mountain of bullshit to get to know someone, there is no point.

I wish someone would have given me that perspective about 20 years ago :shock: naw, then I wouldn't have got to know about half the sex partners I had, or half the serious bf's.  My hubby, I would still be with.  Yep, that is perspective :wink:
