How to be a Fluffernaut - A Comprehensive Guide
    #4543255 - 08/16/05 07:32 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Mods: Please make this a sticky.

Many aspire to full Fluffernauthood, but most fall short in one avenue or another, merely remaining a neophyte. Well no more! Follow these Ten Commandments and you may qualify for initiation into the inner circle.

1. Constantly reference thoroughly debunked books and hoaxes as evidence for your POV and repeat disproven myths such as the 100th Monkey or only using 10% of our brain.

2. List a vast number of websites all in accord with one another; yet sporting no evidence. Double-blind test are a no-no!

3. Come up with a philosophy that is totally impossible to test and proclaim that is the way reality actually is.

4. Fail to directly respond to any straightforward, easily answered question.

5. Use the Secret Society and/or Elitist Group or Too Noble defense as to why mysterious powers cannot be publicly demonstrated even after you claim to be able to publicly demonstrate them.

6. Denounce Randi and his foundation rather than ACTUALLY TAKING THE FRIGGING test. It is much harder to fail this way.

7. Analyze the poster. Ask why he wet the bed as a child and is a lonely, mean SOB - anything to distract from addressing a salient point made.

8. Sulk, pout, and whine to the Mods about the unfairness of it all. Make cowardly snipes on posters in another forum and rate the poster poorly for having a different view.

9. Make up whole new philosophies based totally on fantasy. Aliens, angels and other interdimensional beings are a good starting point.

10. Proclaim what we might be able do if we were super-advanced rather than we currently can demonstrably do. "If you removed all blockages and had total faith you could easily levitate and become immortal."

Master these and you are well on your way.

Happy chakras to you! :heart:

Swami

it's obvious that you only use 10% of your brain. anyone with a solid grasp of the holographic paradigm can see that the lifeforce is weak in you. it's unfair that you are allowed to live. you should read this and maybe you too can become an operating thetan level IV. drink 8 glasses of water a day.

Am I a fluffernaut yet?:thumbup: :grin:

When are you actually going to write something original yourself Swami? It seems to me like you've copied Alan Watts material "on how to be a guru" and claimed it as your own. You're a victim of your own judgements.

A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Now the truth is finally coming out. Thank you goobler.

Swami, is that what this post is really about? Are you using mind control techniques to send out subliminal messages for someone to come fluffer your nuts?

I hope whoever takes the role of fluffernort for Swami also takes with them a big dose of loving touch. Don't bite - this could be severely damaging for the obviously traumatised chap.

11. Always write in cynical humour as a way of never actually involving yourself or connecting yourself to what you are saying. This will act as a good defense for would be questioners of your integrity.

Dear Booby,

Here is where you totally miss the mark:

This will act as a good defense for would be questioners of your integrity.

In a philosophic discussion, a person's premise is all that matters. Their character or motivation (or your erroneous impression thereof) has no bearing whatsoever.

Grok this one fact and we can move forward.

Gobbler,

Thanks for filling in the critical gap of my knowledge concerning porn movies. Perhaps I can utilize this handy factoid when I appear on Jeopardy.

So.. ethos has no place in philosophy?

Act as though

So, I'm confused...

If Swami improved his attitude, would the truth/falsity of his statements change?

The truth of his statements are a given, there's no denying that.

However what defines truth in this paradigm is collective belief. If one desires his words to be accepted throughout the passages it just makes more sense to come from encouragement and expansion. If your mentality is to mock and critisize, it doesn't matter how right you are, eventually you will be resented and a new way will appear, even if that is illusion.

I am sure Swami desires close emotional connection, perhaps through this forum, perhaps however these strong intellectual barriers keep this at a distance. Truth in his argument is not something I question. I have compassion for him. Not "I feel sorry for him he's so ignorant", but real wisdom compassion. When I read Swami's words I feel like I'm reading things I said when I was 10 years younger at the ripe old age of 14. For me, my ultimate skepticism came from a place of feeling hatred against the world for the way it was. "Where's the proof?" I would ask. "Check out the world", I would say, "As if there's a single bit of intelligence governing this world when there's shit like X taking place...". "Don't tell me about no fucking god, god wouldn't let this happen".

But see eventually what happens as you try to move further and further away from this Love, is the Pain grows stronger and stronger and stronger. It becomes so much that it cripples you into silence. Ultimately humbled, he begins to recognise a master teaching at work. "Am I creating this?", he questions. He begins to realise that equally proportionate to the distance he puts between himself and Love and Trust, is the size of Pain and Fear he is experiencing. The clocks rewind and he finds an even greater love than he ever imagined possible.

Go easy Swami.
