- Heaven cannot exist if God does not exist.
- You cannot believe in heaven if you do not believe in God.
- You will never experience a prolonged "feeling" of heaven in this mortal life, regardless of how good or comfortable or exciting your life happens to be.
- Despite arguments to the contrary, heaven has never been and will never be established on earth.
- All attempts to establish heaven on earth will fail, regardless of whether you believe in God in or not.
- The desire to establish heaven on earth is ultimately Satanic in nature; this applies regardless of your belief or non-belief in the existence of Satan.
Incoherence. An endless drone of incoherence from all sides and from every conceivable angle. With each passing day it becomes more intense, more inconsistent, and more unintelligible. Running parallel with this is the unwillingness to acknowledge the incoherence - the constant acting as if the lack of orderly continuity is actually orderly continuity. Framing all of this is the total lack of penitence displayed by those who actively generate, distribute, and promote the incoherence.
Don't get me wrong - I don't expect anyone who actively opposes God to fall to his or her knees and publicly cry out in repentance, but at the same time I imagined I would catch a glimpse of remorse every once in a while; that I would pick up the faint scent of compunction here and there; that I would detect nervous whispers of regret beneath the droning. At the very least I anticipated mild expressions of doubt seeping through now and again. But I have yet to sense anything of the kind, and I doubt I will see much of it in the future.
Look, the evil we face now is unabashedly unapologetic. And why not? Relentless and unmerciful, it simply does not care about what anyone thinks because it has come to the perfectly correct conclusion that barely anyone thinks at all.
Learning of an impending divorce within the circle of people I know always leaves me devastated. Granted, the devastation I feel is nothing like the avalanche of ruin that has buried the poor woman in the painting above, but still.
For a while I suspected this acutely negative (over?)reaction had to do with the great many divorces I witnessed (this includes my parents' divorce) as I was growing up, but I eventually realized there was more to it than that.
Whenever I become aware of a marriage that is ending in divorce, I tend to visualize a hairline crack rippling through the Sacred.
Desolating to say the least.
Present most people with the forthright observation that the global elite pulled off a devastatingly swift and successful totalitarian coup under the pretext of the birdemic and the observation would be peremptorily rejected as too simplistic to be true.
In fact, most people would regard such an observation as the hallmark of a stupid and unenergetic mind, one too lazy to appreciate let alone figure out the complicated world we inhabit. The totalitarian coup observation would be labeled "a simple answer" concocted by an unsophisticated mode of thinking undeserving of serious attention.
Granted, a great many lazy minds have generated a great deal of simple answers that have indeed done very little justice to the complexity of some issues. And yes, some simple answers have frequently led to simple "solutions" that often had nothing at all to do with the problems they had been created to solve. In this sense, a simple answer truly can be indicative of a stupid and lazy mind.
At the same time, those who regard the complexity of a complicated world as the only proof needed to defy the possibility of simple answers are utterly blind to the outright stupidity and laziness of their own apparently sophisticated mode of thinking. While simultaneously scoffing at the laughable notion of a simple answer capable of explaining everything (or at least explaining that which is most essential), this refined and worldly mode of thinking does little more than construct complicated answers that are incapable of explaining anything.
To regard everything as too complex and complicated for simple answers is to regard everything as a foggy labyrinth with no assured exit. Entering the labyrinth is easy enough, but finding a way out is another matter entirely. Wandering through complexity quickly degenerates into a Herculean labor. The sophisticated mode of thinking learns to avoid this laboring altogether. It is far more efficient and practical to merely declare everything to be an intricate labyrinth and leave it at that.
Hence, the totalitarian takeover cannot have really happened, and even if it did, it is definitely not as straightforward and comprehensible as it appears to be. It's more complicated than that, stupid. Too complicated to think about. Best to just acknowledge the complexity of it all and wade no further. To do otherwise would be to seek the unsophisticated sanctuary of the "simple answer".
Nothing annoys me more than people who complain about how busy they are, which is why I find writing this particular blog post so annoying.
I'll get right to the point - I've been very busy lately - too busy to blog on a consistent basis (which explains the lack of posts lately).
Anyway, I hope to be out of the weeds and back to regular blogging in the next two or three days.
