    Well, let's back off from the whole 'alien' paradigm for a moment.

    Being disconnected from the 'said' is a subset of the reactions I'm talking about. Most truth tends to slip by unnoticed and unfiltered. I'm more of a hunter, looking for choice pieces of truth to hunt and kill. I like to get in there with my cloaking apparati and unleash hot truthful fury.

    I call this the 'alien vs. predator' paradigm.

    Haha.

    Damn those Yautja, and their cloaking ability.

    I was going to leave you a "Stick around!" Visitor Wall message, ala Major Dutch. True story.

    Yes, that's what I've been doing so far.

    I just end up feeling frustrated with the limitations of my retarded human brain to see things in terms that aren't relative to anything at all. But I suppose even if I did hear from someone like that, my mind wouldn't have the kind of structure needed to understand it correctly anyway, because my mind is set up to see things in terms of what they mean for myself or others rather than just as they are.

    Extrapolating yourself from your extrapolation is impossible. That's why you need someone else to do it for you. It's best to choose someone with obvious self-interest, because anyone who pretends to be disinterested may be hiding their real motives, or worse, they may not even be aware of them.

    MY motives in being 'disinterested' are purely for laffs. Might I have other motives? Probably, but I would think these tend towards the noise floor of statistical insignificance.

    I have not been here before, so it's either coincidence or apophenia. I am currently playing a sort of INTP stereotype, so that might account for either.

    Thanks
