Reality. Yes. There should really be no need to stick a label on it to identify it.
But with so many lost people claiming their own version as the only real one, such lunacy becomes the norm.
Reality is what people used to refer to as God.
The unfathomable mystery.

Maker's Mark? I tasted that a couple of weeks back. I'm still trying to recover.

Thank you.

Be not depressed. This is the way it is. Maybe it will change.
Meanwhile, grapple with it, beat the crap out of it, and emerge the stronger.

Reality. You know. The Way Things Are.
A Man adapts to take this into account. He changes his procedures, so as not to be rolled-over by it.
Big T, here, seems - rather belatedly - to be grappling with this concept.
It would please me, no end, if he was successful.

He's uncultured and not particularly up to date, either.
He hasn't realized yet that his buddy in unculturedness, Fallot, is now banned.
He's likely to be next.

There is this policy, though, of temporary bans, now in effect.
See how that works...
Maybe some folks are still actually capable of adaptation to reality.

I have to wonder how you treated people before your great advancement.

"...save it for your fucking son or something. This isn't your fucking dojo, you are not the fucking master, so drop the conceited fucking attitude."

I had wondered what form 'a simple apology' might take.
Men are generally able to do simple things like that.
Be seeing you.

I find nothing inherently wrong with misanthropy. Other than it being crazy.
But when humanity has itself become crazy, crazy seems as good a way as any of dealing with it.

Jack Daniels? I've lately developed a taste for that. But generally, it's single malts, if anything.
I figure that at my age, overly healthy habits can become somewhat academic.

That seems somewhat at odds with: "There's too many of us...There's too many of us..."
But I've often heard sentiments along those lines. Apparently, fatherhood drastically changes men.
I wouldn't know.

Any derailment ends when its momentum runs out.
It has.
Now we have fitted these new things called 'brakes'.
Expect to be surprised at how well this works.

Only for as long as it takes to get it back on track.
Do not adjust your set: normal service will be resumed, shortly.

You see your mind as being one with your ego?
I see it a little differently.

Ego, although a product of mind, is not the mind, itself.
Ego is identity-dependence, which is necessary as a child, in order to establish oneself in life.
This is me. This is what I am. Notice me. Appreciate me.

Whereas mind is an intelligent tool to problem-solve. There when you need it. It solves problems.
I use my mind to do all sorts of things, but when those things are done, click: off it goes, back to sleep.

Maybe I misunderstood your comment?

Nobody actively likes authority. Even when they understand the need for it.
Because authority is one of those things synonymous with its abuse.
It scares and threatens. What's to like?

Yet authority is like a fence: it keeps stuff in, as well as keeping stuff out.
In itself, it is neither good nor bad. It sets the stage, delineates the ends of things.
No field-game can take place without the field being first established.

I am not a champion of Civilization, because I see the end result of it.
With its inevitable descent into the swamps from which it arose, one has to wonder why even bother in the first place.
But any game lasts as long as it lasts. And while it does, its rules apply.

Crows really do, sometimes, carry big sticks. Native lore has interesting things to say about crows.
Moving outside of time and space. Spanning life and the afterlife. Keepers of The Sacred Law.
The Sacred Law is very simple. It goes something like this:

Respect and Reverence are your birthright. Your only birthright.
Bearing this in mind, you will move with the current of life.
Swim against this flow, and trouble will vie with struggle, all your days.

And you will surely drown.

That, my little nothing, gets you removed.
Innumerable chances have come and gone.
Nobody needs you.

You're on a roll, Cargest. Wisest man around.
I don't get to see this very often.
