                      Dreamballs Welcome

     Mortals are not welcome on this list.  They will not be
kicked off, but frankly I wish they would leave.  They generate
a lot of noise and I personally am not interested in their stupid viewpoints
any more than I am interested in listening to cats fight.

     The same goes for Christians or anyone who believes that
God died for our sins and that there is an Eternal Hell populated
by people who do not make the grade.

     Mortality and Hell Fire are both evil philosophies that live
at Apathy and Covert Hostility respectively on the tone scale,
and the activities of such people are uniformly destructive even
though on the surface they might seem to be doing such good.

     Thus, unless they are truly seeking a better view, the Carrion
and Sulfer crowd can not possibly add anything to this list
except as specimens of rabid Divinity for the rest of us to observe.

     Gods made the illusion that there is no God, but that does
not mean we have to worship the illusion until we are buried in it.

     From ADORE:

     Immortals who dislike Mortals have some Karma to face.

     Namely that Mortals who dislike Immortals are despicable.

     Karma is involvement with hidden shames of the past.

     Shame is a waste of time.

     So is Karma.
