When I was 14 I was more intelligent than the people trying to convince me, naturally, that caused a lot of problems.

Now that their attention is elsewhere, I'm more of a solution.

Yea me too, the same thing happend to me in religous ed class as well.... ! yoda

That's what happens I guess....

I was the one who would always ask the really hard paradoxical questions, and then the religous ed teachers just had to play it off like nothing (or just tell me to be quiet).

That's the thing though, if you're right - prove it.

If there really is something to it - then it should prove testing time and time again.

Test the best. hf

You know, I think the majority of people who aren't mentally ill usually tend to come to their senses when we just leave them alone and let them figure it out...some take longer than others but I think we are given enough time here to do it, water finds a level surface.

Of course we must guide the people we care about in a constructive way but letting them make mistakes is part of the process.

A long time ago I realized, I have no business questioning anyone else if I can't first question ME!! So I did, and I realized I was a grade A idiot that needed to make some changes.

I'm still doing that and questioning everything I see (and dont see)

Re: So Here We Are...
Soo. Who would think a song from Five Finger Death Punch could so succinctly capture the "mood" of the pandemic...



But it gets even better as a fellow by the name of Duncan Koerber, far more adept than I broke the video down in a very moving way in the comments.

"Phenomenal song, but I was drawn to the game of Chess between the Angel and Devil.

The Angel was pushing for the early mate, believing themselves superior in skill to The Demon, mobilizing his queen (the statue of liberty, resembling our freedom) and the Dark Horse (unrealized opponent, rising to prominence, or our inner tendency to do what we know is wrong) stepped up to stop it.

Then the Dark Horse appeared in front of our protagonist walking through the empty streets. The Horse was then traded for the Bishop to open up the Queen once more for the mate; I believe this is symbolic of how we will always have a devil inside of us we must conquer with the sacrifice of our bishop, or higher self.

It was in this moment Black could save itself by defending with its rook or advancing its pawn to be covered by its queen, but instead, the devil sourly re-takes the bishop. I believe this analysis is how demons are so caught up in the moment, they lose their sight of the bigger picture.

We see our protagonist taking off his hat, realizing how his inner demon is ever feverishly seeking the immediate gratification. Then, eyeballing the liquor store, we see the Light Queen swing forward to mate the Dark King, backed up by its bishop. Our higher selves are always there, but without mobilizing them, they are useless. Then again, our higher self is very defensively potent, keeping us from ever fully stepping off the edge, but we will never be able to truly vanquish our demons without our queen to be executive under the watchful protection of our higher self.

The queen, in this sense, is our true belief, or liberty to discern what we do with out life; we always know intrinsically right from wrong, but can never make the final move without first practicing the virtues of self-discipline and unbiased reasoning. Our protagonist knows he doesn't need any liquor; though continuously desiring it, he believes he is better off without it, and strong enough to checkmate his demons.

Finally, he returns to bed. He's exhausted himself contemplating the world and battling his inner demons, a very familiar feeling. The audience is left fully aware that this is not the end of the game, that tomorrow will bring a fresh board, and his demon counterpart will have learned from his previous mistake. We must always adapt, lest we relent to the dark horse we battle within.

Thank you for this somehow simultaneously religious and analytical discourse between the forces of existence. The symbols of the cinematography perfectly resemble the vague restlessness of the song. We are strangers to our own minds, a prisoner to the flesh condemning us to be free. The enigma being how we relentlessly rise to the challenge, the eternal game of chess. To be the battleground between Heaven and Hell, to be a warrior in this perpetual war, is a privilege.

Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?" That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.

Epoch Ellipse

---

They were dumb.
I was an an idiot.

Unable to visualize the oval of shalom, a zero containing the astraea rhea.

They were.

They did not know where the unipole was located, what the aesir isle is, that an knew Enoch, or that the unipole is also valhalla.. or anything.

They didn't make it to the logos.

Didn't even try to go there, hyperspatial interdimensional travel and communication really does exist.

:(

But they did continue to participate in a mass invocation unto the necromancy of the destroyer.

They did pledge allegiance unto Romulus, not Ahura., and the one winged fallen angel agenda.

---

I don't know who these people are, they identify as a dolt; each; when they've reached 18.

A stupid person.

The disempowering false predication is in their legal jargon.

Not know who An+sister are, they don't know who they are.

They don't care.

---

.. By greeting each other with hel, low.

they didn't know what the creature from the abyss is, or that metatron is the architect snake, he - his black cube; and his archaeon "civilizing" machinations devour worlds.

They denied being given the egg law, co-equal rights of abatement.

Egg law, Eagle, Igloo, Equal.

I'm the only one who took Uriaels oath, and the oath of shuvu.

---

Erishkigal wanted this to be an Angel Hut 8 world.

We were going to be given interplanetary and interstellar accreditization as a species.

You all ""illumbrothers" and your galactic criminal Rothschild family, with your xna and triple helix projects blew that.

Thanks to the Jesuits.. Also, hijacking the rainbow.

Some serious co-intelpro there.

---

Council above Erishkigal downgraded what she wanted to huatl-hut, and decided to remove the chromosome spliced humans.

That's all if us.

Thanks brotherhood, ya fucked the whole world.

UTU is pissed, Thoth has my back; not yours.

You don't nahuatl, or speak quechua.

This is not Aramaica.

---

I'm sorry lord, I could not find the good people of michoqua in over 20 years, in Arizona and New Mexico.

I doubt they're in Michigan either.

There you go.
