The Illusion of Speciality
    #2167915 - 12/08/03 02:56 AM (13 years, 5 days ago)

"I have a unique gift to talk to the dead, angels saved me from death (while other guardian angels failed misearbly), I see the fairie folk and UFOS, or aliens or God spoke directly to me with a message for all mankind"

"Yes, I have transecended ego and have had visions because I am spiritually more advanced than you."

What-the-fuck-ever.

(Sorry, but I was channeling the spirit of Sclorch and take no responsibility for this post!)

How about those that claim to be more logical than others?

Hahahaha.

Some people are just more egoless than others. It is hard to listen to someone talk about visting planet zeditan, meeting with the pleadianoidisms, and then talk about pirating video games and smoking tobacco.

I think everyone thinks there are more special than everyone else because of
there ego. But this all come down to a basic sub-concious need to eat and reproduce. Remember in the wild you must come first its like kill or be killed,
but we have a concious mind that is now diffrent from the animals an so it just translates from

That foods mine, that tree is mine, thoes women are all mine (still no change with some)

into :

I have more money, I am more inteligent, I have more power, I am god.

But we still try and need to transend beyond the animal form and needs, in other words if you where to become a god say like neo from the matrix then you WOULD not tell anyone or use thoes powers in anyway or form. Because you would realise that there is no need for materalistic things and you cant help others because they can only help them selfvs ect.

Is every human perfectly equal in mind and body? Obviously not... so, there could be levels of "specialness" ...in fact, the opposite is completely absurd. Do you not think Buddha was more spiritually advanced than you? How 'bout Jesus? Do you not realize there are many people more intelligent than you? Are people more athletic than you?

Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. We are the same decaying organic matter organic as everyone else. We are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world. We are all part from the same compost heap

pushing that crap again? "your an insane person". "If our fathers were our models for god, and our father left, what does that make us?" They raise us to think we will be rock stars... Everything is evolving... everything is falling apart.

I like that movie so much, cause it just works on so many levels. I try to keep in mind what chuck was getting across, sure my head is shaved, but im not a space monkey. Im gonna save my brotha from that damn ship.  :eyemouth:

Actually, it went more like this:
Our fathers were our models for God. And if our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about God?

No, we're special. Forget about our physical bodies for a minute, which are pretty incredible in themselves, and look at who we are, and from where we come. Think about where we are going, and our capacity for getting there.

I've been in "Pollyanna" mode for a few days and it doesn't appear that it's abating any as yet. But I've been feeling like there is something good happening, or about to happen, since last Thursday. I feel so optimistic that I won't let myself feel down even if I lock my keys in my car while I'm in San Diego today.

Speaking of which, here's what's cool about working for yourself, and having the kind of job that you drive around a bit: I am taking a break from the drive to San Diego at a Starbucks across from the beach in Carlsbad, and it's a beautiful day. I have a cup of coffee and the internet, and life couldn't get any better.

isnt saying that no one is special just as fucked up as saying everyone is special? I mean, somebody has to be special, right?

My candidate: Me.

After all, I'm a special Agent who carries a .38 special on special assignments, especially when I'm eating the IHOP breakfast special in my biology lab, doing special classifications.

note: the above post has been a tribute to slopism. All hail the Slopist Revolution!!
