Haha :)
I thought he got eaten by the Alien, but maybe he didn't, after all.

Experiencing Reality isn't programming. It is experience. There is no human agenda involved.

That is one way of looking at it, for sure, but immortality is real and possible.
It does not apply to the identity, though. That is definitely mortal.

The difference was that the one who got fined didn't 'like' smelly panhandlers.
It's fine to dislike someone for being a wonderful, vibrant, colourful character, as long as you don't show the dislike. It's not fine to dislike a smelly panhandler, and say so.
This is the main reason aliens haven't yet successfully infiltrated us and taken over:
No non-human can ever quite get the nuances between being seen as a great guy or as a nazi bigot.
Even I have trouble.

Amusingly, I know this guy's mother, quite well, but until recently, didn't know he was her son.
So I asked her where he was, you know, that retarded guy...
She looked at me funny, and said that was her son.
So I did a crow and engaged her on the whole business of what we call people, and she realized that no matter what I referred to him as, I liked him, and really, that was what counted.

Who am I to say? If you saw him, you would think 'retard'. But you'd probably like him, anyway.

I was reflecting over something along the same lines...
I know a local retard, who I often engage in what you might call conversation, and find his lack of intelligence rather likeable. He seems happy enough, but then he seems to have no pretensions about who he is, or how he should be viewed by others. He has no interest in 'Change'.
Perhaps low I.Q. is not such a problem, in itself, as the inflated sense of self-importance that almost every Western individual has fallen prey to.
Once again, ego shows itself for the destructive mind-virus that it is.

The mind finally stops. Then what?
That depends.
Did you create anything useful, in life? Anything that would outlive you?
Did you give birth to, successfully raise, and set free a soul?
If you did, you are - literally - laughing.
The soul is you, and you it.
Now it is everywhere. Always.
Not 'you', but far more than 'you' ever were.
Your own, unique, essential contribution.

Or did you produce nothing?
Oh well. Lights out.

While being, yourself, living proof that it can not be done.
But that is no reason to do otherwise.
I have a faint memory of youth, and what that was.
For all its drawbacks, it was fuckin' great  :)

No matter how old you may become, a little naivete is a worthwhile attribute to keep.

Humans could be almost as good, but for that idiot ego.

Used to be mine, too. For all the good it did me. Age modifies a lot of things.
You'll discover, at some point, that no matter how hard you try, or how well you say it, the understanding you assumed was taking place in your audience, wasn't really there, at all.

It's hard to find the words.
This is where spirituality meets science.
The words are inadequate symbols for what is being poorly described.
Words are a way to wake people up and get them with the program, but words only begin to accomplish that when every word means the same thing to everybody. Witness entropy in action: nobody able to explain anything to anyone and no-one able to understand anything. All foretold in Revelations. Which possibly points to it being a cyclic event.

The very few people in human history that have seen The Whole Reality, have been confounded by an inability to explain their experience. Parables are the closest thing to communicating such things.

I can't even read this stuff.
What use is a mind that is filled with this?
Does it actually do anyone any good? Does it create anything for anyone, or for anything?
I discovered a great secret, some years back: the empty mind is the free mind.
Like the cosmos, it is mostly vacuum. Grand, beautiful, magnificent, regal.
But most of all: emptiness, ready to hold any amount of anything, but without needing to.

Is that the recommended dose?
