A meditation on pain

There's just too much of it.

Of course it is biologically necessary, but often we would get the message that there is something dreadfully wrong happening to our soft tissue/bones/organs from much less.

There is no need for quite so much of it.

I don't know what the theological implication is. "Curse God and die!" they said to Job. Hahaha! It's not that easy. I tried.

God indeed. I don't think there is a God, yet. I think that's what this is all about, this brutal struggle of life: we are building God, but he's not ready yet. The blood sacrifice of millions of generations of shocking pain, the blood shed by evolution.

One day the benevolent and incandescent one will rise.

God's deconstruction results in us, and our pain.

Who knew he was a masochist?

God is a sadist..Not a masochist..


You must know the story that goes a little like thees;
Man invents a huge, monolithic uber-computer to ask the ultimate question;Is there a God?
The appointed day for the answer arrives, and in front of the massed ranks of humanity, the uber-computer answers...
"There is now..."

Otter, once again, mangles the point...and the joke.

Masochism, in this example, is the clarifying hinge-point in the conceptual fog.

Only false gods are sadistic.

Now is the eternal realm.

Actually, the computer story is pretty good...in a puppetmaster sort of way.

Strikes me there's not enough pain in the world as far as some are concerned.

I dont mangle..I dissect.
