This scene from "Its always sunny in Philadelphia" is really funny to me.
I didn't think much about it but looking back at it now they may have been pointing to something else much larger. . .

Beware of ambiguously sourced stories like this. Controlled opposition takes may forms. Notice the French radio station is never identified. The giveaway is the crack pipe.

When I was a child... I had my 40th birthday. I remember thinking I should start to act like an adult. I sold a motorcycle and bought a car. I bought adult clothes designed for success. I let reason and intelligence be my guide.
Later I realized that it wasn't working for me so I dumped the posing. I lost some of my new 'friends', (some were quite attractive) but realized I didn't like being around them much anyway.
A was also reminded that 'If it's not broke, don't fix it'. I'd like to say that that adage was a lesson learned but Im still learning it. For me that rabbit hole runs way deep.
A friend here posted a Darth Vader vid with me in mind. I had not forgotten to address it and say thanks, I was just waiting for the right time.
Vader and Skyrim's Paarthurnax are powerful archetypes for me.
Vader's (Anakin's) fall was lamented by our man Obi Wan because Anakin was the 'chosen one', the one who was to bring balance (baal-lance?)(baal-ants?) to the force(Source). The consequence of that fall we see in the 'prequel' films. In the end it wasn't Vaders Dark Lord who redeemed him, it was his child (Luke's) faith in him. That never faltered, it was a faith that had no intelligence or reason but just was.
I wondered too, about what the balance of light and darkness meant. I dismissed the concept of 'means justifying the end' that some hold so I was kinda stuck.
Nicks persistent hint that Hegel's dialectic was misunderstood was were I found a clue. Looking at the dialect from a positive viewpoint clarified many things for me. One was that the dark-light thesis antithesis could result in a synthesis which is far more than it's 'con'stituant parts. So much more so that It makes light and darkness nearly irrelevant. I have my neck out here a little because I haven't digested this fully but I think it's close.

The day I saw 'Return of the Jedi' I visited a mentor. He wasn't there but his young daughter was. I asked her if she has seen the movie and she had. We talked about it for a while and I joked (half-joked) that if there was hope for Darth Vader, there was hope for me.
She said, "Yes, all you have to do is take off your mask." You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Paarthurnax too was saved (spared) by a child. Dovahkin can mean child of the dragons. You players spared Paarthurnax right? Say what?
It occurs to me at this moment that Anakin and Dovahkin sound closely related. But Ive already been too long winded.

Do you often stop running a meter from the finish line?
Thanks Coach, sometimes I still need a kick in the pants.

we all do, Cooperation is the most selfish act one can engage in.

Would you elaborate? I typically feel that I must set my own desires in the back seat in order to cooperate.

Why do the most heinous,vile people donate genrously to charities?

An odd loophole of universal law is that all actions generate currency, regardless of intention.  Doing good for others is doing good for oneself.

The physical world is the mean average of our beliefs and collective beliefs.

So if a minority want to alter the physical reality without engendering popular belief they must generate tremendous amounts of currency to "fund" the change in physical world.

That figure is arrived at by subtracting debts from assets, but still it is trying to push a false equivalency between poverty and criminality

I see the value in their study, but They also fail to mention that Boston, like Los Angeles, has many very rich families who average into the incomes.  Without looking at the demographic numbers, I would believe that much of the Old Guard and new wealth that lives in that area is Caucasian.  (Which is fine... just another anthropology fact.)

If there *was* a link between poverty and crime, I think the crime statistics would be higher in many more parts of the country.

An interesting article about several of Boston billionaires.

Just like with anything, take what resonates. While I found the syncs with the number 18 fascinating - reminding of the thread on here about the game of golf - it was the etymologies of the names of significant political players matching with their historical roles that really blew my mind. His fleshing out of the techno-vs-bio Armageddon was discussed from a different standpoint in Teddy K's manifesto.
