07 07 11 - 15:27Morons tell you that the spiritual secret to life is love, etc.
They make it sound so easy.
Idiots, here is the challenge:
Nature is phenomenally evil. Bloody, painful, brutal, cruel and violent.
How do you reconcile the good in the universe with the bad?
You can be like a moron hippie and pretend that the bad isn't bad. They don't want to hurt you -- they're just misunderstood. Shoot John Lennon again, please.
You can be like a fatalist and pretend the good isn't good. It's all just heading toward the end. < shrug >
Or you can realize that what makes life amazing is that it balances these two and makes good out of them.
You cannot have something without nothing.
You cannot have life without death.
You cannot have good without bad.
This is the essence of relativity (not relativism, which is dogma for hippies): things only become distinct when they have opposites. Light/dark, hot/cold, metal/metalcore.
Hippies and other assorted mental cases deny this and so miss out on the true meaning of spirituality, which is literally that only the pattern remains.
Especially after you feed those hippies to the snapping turtles.
