The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Of course it is exactly the same on MBTI Central - I slowly approach the pane of glass on my new iMac until I know you are just on the other side. And some of you, alas, hiss at me. Some of you play with me. And some of you ignore me. Just like the window cats.

    I haven't seen anyone with a nazi cat avatar but I expect to see a nazi cat staring back at me the next time I look in a window, separated by the merest pane of glass.

    You're weird.

    Like your sentence spacing.

    Rock on.

    G'day Iwakar,

    Yes, my hero is Dennis Weir. And even his friends call him, "weird". Of course it could just be his name but it could also be because he is a trance designer.

    But he is more than a trance designer he also has a Trance Theory which purports to explain trance. And interestingly his Trance Theory is falsifiable. You can meet him in The Trance Institute

    And yes, my sentence spacing is called Telegraphic Prose.

    It is a form of prose that arrives after the Age of Literacy and at the beginning of the Electronic Age.

    Telegraphic Prose is electronically typed and is transmitted to you electronically. And you are now reading me electronically.

    Dare I say, Telegraphic Prose is the prose of the Noosphere. And the Noosphere is the Electronic Age, also called the Global Village or the New Tribalism. And here we are, you and I, social networking in the New Tribe of MBTI Central.

    And frankly, I can't see any difference between my neighbour's cat looking at me through a pane of glass, and you, looking at me through the screen in front of you.

    But neither the window cats nor Hmm will come swimming with me in my favourite ocean pool -

    Will you come swimming with me?

    I put the blame entirely on the shoulders of reality - some say the Devil made them do it - but, mate I blame reality.

    I was mugged, mate, mugged by reality.

    And once mugged, twice shy.
    That's pretty sad.

    Think of the advantages of being conservative.

    I am no longer a mug.

    And I'm not scammed by Mrs Briggs and her daughter Mrs Myers.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.
