    It may seem that those who reify others are cheap, shallow and nasty but the truth is more serious - they are motivated by ressentiment.

    Ressentiment is not only bone marrow deep but deeply concealed.

    And it is essential it is concealed for it is such a hatred of itself and others, it dare not show its face.

    And unable to show its face, it whispers to others its secret of self hatred - see, it says, I am just like you - let us join together and despoil the happiness of others.

    Let us despoil falling in love with perverted sex and narcotics.
    Let us despoil the deep down freshness of things with stale conformity.

    And let us conceal it all with smart cleverness.
    Let us sneer at what is good and beautiful.

    Let us despoil ourselves - for this is ressentiment.

    Victor, do you imagine that you're going to convince the members of this forum to disperse?

    Merely to look in the mirror.

    But Victor, this is where silly stuff goes, not where serious gloom and words like 'reify' do. The title of the thread is MILFs, GILFs, and DILFs. Not to mention the fact that the forum itself is the fluff zone. Why not loosen up? Really now. I don't even get if this is a Andy Kaufman-esque prank or not.

    It's true, to talk about reification and ressentiment in the fluff zone is transgressive.

    And it's true, to be transgressive is trendy.

    But look at it this way - each image has a foreground and background - and the foreground is highlighted to the extent it contrasts with the background.

    And what higher contrast could there be than that between reification, ressentiment and fluff?

    Exactly, but you have it backwards. The fluff zone is here to be a foreground to the more serious things going on everywhere else. That's the reason it exists, because sometimes people make playful topics in serious forums and those get moved here. Being superduper serious is for elsewhere.

    Default The Most Interesting of All

    So a mirror is a map of yourself.

    But there are many different kinds of maps - there is the map, the mirror, in the bathroom - there is the reflection of you in the eyes of the group - and there is the reflection of you in my eyes.

    It is important to remember that the map is not the territory - so it is wise to consult a number of maps.

    So you can look at your own reflection in the bathroom or you can look at your reflection in the eyes of this group or you can look at your reflection in my eyes.

    Some reflections will be familiar to you and some unfamiliar.
    Some reflections you will like and some you won't like.
    But each reflection is a reflection of you.

    You may ask, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all". And you will probably get the answer you are looking for.

    Or you may see a reflection you don't recognize at all - and that is the most interesting of all.
