PRETENDER

     Well I am at least a good pretender.

     Meatballs are one of my most detested oppterms, even though I was
one.

     But I was a reasonable meatball, I WANTED the dreamball theory to
be true from very early on, and in fact I knew I didn't know which was
true and didn't know how to prove it.  I knew that IF the meatball
theory was true we could never know, and I assumed that IF the dreamball
theory was true there should be a proof of it somewhere, not just an
exteriorization, but something deeper.

     But I couldn't bring myself to just have faith in the dreamball
theory, because I was missing many parts of it, and the world is just
too miserable a place (for me) for my immature dreamball theories to
account for all the pain we are going through.

     Eventually I grew up and the theory matured, and the proof came
alone, which doesn't prove the world is a dream, but it does prove that
consciousness is 0D (zero dimensional) and thus has no space or time to
its underlying structure, and thus MUST be eternal in nature.

     How one would then interface a 0D consciousness with a 3D brain
then becomes an interesting problem in physics and philosophy.

     That seriously upped the stakes in the contest between meatball and
dreamball.

     The meatballs that piss me off, are those that resist the dreamball
theory completely, insist they want to die and that's it bud, and do not
take the time to help themselves to the ample evidence that maybe the
dreamball theory is possibly correct.

     It's their own hope they can't stand, but in the end they exceed my
own credibility and willingness to confront, let alone create.  I try,
but I still go into drooling convulsions of hate :)

      Spot NO   meatball.
      Spot SOME meatball.

     I try to slice them and dice them with my sword of sarcasm, but I
find they just dent and dull my sword to no effect whatsoever on
themselves.

     As Electra said, 'only BT's bash'.

     "I have had time enough for love" cases drive me crazy.

     PTSness results from trying to prove the suppressive wrong.

     PTS means potential trouble source and is the phenomenon of
rollercoastering heavily in life.
