so, a question does arise
what is the point of all this, you know?
what is the point of life, of struggle, of hurt?
is there one?
it seems like life wants to live, you know?
it seems to struggle, to wreck its dissolution from the ether
it stops itself from not existing
it can feel like struggle is real, let us presume; it can also be seen to be mere stories, ideas that coalesce and fight to replicate themselves
memes: packets of information
those that “try” to replicate end up replicating, so all are “trying” to replicate
an evolutionary system, built not from genes, but memes
built from packets of information, discrete packets of information, struggling to survive
and thus building a dream
this is a model; take the good; let the bad stay still
such can be said for all things, for all ideas, for all models, for all sensory inputs, whatever they be
take the good and learn from the bad
or, to be more fair, and acknowledge the implicit judgment in the former statement: take the helpful, learn from the less helpful
and thus a wise truth, an enduring truth, emerges: diagnose before prescribing
give yourself the chance to be wrong; put yourself out there; try being honest
no lies, please
as it were
you know what I mean?
try to just say how you feel
do it as an mtr (map the rules game [deliberately do something different in order to see what it’s like])
when someone asks how you feel, consider actually taking the question as a question
pause and give reflection
for the good things, in life
if negative comes to mind, shake your head; destroy the electrical pattern of negative thought in the brain by overloading with new sensory input
with automatic imagination, with nGaim (nondual Gödelian automatic imagination memetics), with other mind technologies that supercede, you can wipe thought via thought
you can build an idea within, a meme within, that tears apart others
a meme that self-defends, on your benefit
and we can treat these memes however we like
these concepts of patterns seeking to replicate, being encouraged to replicate because of time’s vastness
time cranks forward, and memes that are more effective, replicate
you can treat this as truth
or you can not
nonetheless, _something_ is happening
_something_ is being perceived
_something_ is being experienced
do you notice it? the feeling of it?
the feeling of your breathing, the feeling of your mind, searching?
how strange it can be to give loose the chase, to cease the effort, to relax in the Now
try to feel that suffering, notice its nonnecessity
it could, in fact, cease, disappear, craft its own destruction, disappearance
suffering can lead to investigation of suffering, and then cessation of it
such could also be said about the inverse; a subtle meme can strengthen and “cause” itself into existence, at least as seen by macroscopic bodies
virtual memes, popping into and out of existence, like virtual particles in quantum theory
