Hi Deepfish - yes, I got the pun. That was just my goofy way of answering your reply.
Ilkka - No, I don't see them as heroes; merely certain folks whose insights I respect. No elongated heads nor bulging muscles required. We've got enough of those running around these days. Idolatry, to my mind, is one of the prime reasons why so many people nowadays are unable to think for themselves.
"I've noticed a distinct change in your personality since you decided to attend the gathering, almost a kind of "relief" from having to carry a shield all the time. The consequence is that your consciousness is now "out and about" in the Other Realm. Just keep in mind that the Other Realm is a lot more ethical than this one... duty, honor and responsibility must be upheld, because you will be judged on the quality of your character, not the quantity of possessions you have. Good quality opens a lot of doors."
You got this, eh? I've been carrying that shield because I've needed to do so, for survival. It's tough, visiting with family and passing through the room as they watch the latest news broadcast, only to be asked, "Billy, you're not following the elections, are ya?"
I've learned to deftly yet kindly redirect the conversation, i.e. "these aren't the facts you're looking for. Can I get you anything to drink?"
Apart from this, though, I am quite intrigued about what you have to say concerning my consciousness being "out and about" in the Other Realm (I do have questions, but another time). I feel it, believe me. It's why I've stated previously that the timing on this is quite serendipitous: These coming months will hold in store for me a number of changes: new home, long-standing affairs set in place, and the letting go of certain aspects of the reality I've created, which will undoubtedly open new doors. I will be ready to give the best that I have, and to begin my journey into this heretofore undiscovered country (undiscovered for me, at least).
"Usually, stages ascend from hell--the floor--not descend from Heaven. Got an inversion going on there."
Curious about that inversion...
"Given ISUS, perhaps it was 'Schrödinger's Cat on the Floor?'"
I take this to mean they began arguing over nonsensical things, i.e. if you lock a cat in a box and release poison, how will you know if the cat be alive and/or dead and/or both? I don't know, but perhaps the screeching vocalizations and the wild body flailing produced by an animal being poisoned, and the subsequent silence that follows, might provide a clue as to whether or not the cat has lost its ninth life. Amazing how folks can spend their careers focusing on such 'thought provoking' ideas. Entire tomes have been written concerning whether or not a hypothetical cat is hypothetically alive and/or dead and/or neither and/or both. In fact, I just found a video clip, hot off the presses, showing an interview between Michio Kaku and the ghost of Albert Einstein, (recorded live via satellite on the planet Melmac, 1.3 billion light years from Earth), concerning the recent hypothetical re-discovery of the hypothetical phenomenon known as Gravity Waves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTcRRaXV-fg
Unless, of course, I'm misinterpreting the ''Schrödinger's Cat" statement, i.e. you're actually implying that ISUS tends to 'buck' the status quo, thus revealing how out of touch with reality so much of 'science' has become these days. I just find the entire topic surrounding 'Schrödinger's Cat' to be ludicrous, as there are many people who have taken this hypothetical experiment in a literal sense as a means of explaining (or not explaining) the underlying fundamental nature and/or natures and/or lack thereof inherent in the universe.
"Unless there's no pussability of that, which would be a cat-astrophe."
You sound like my goofy Uncle, the 'comedian' in the family; the one with busts of the three stooges in his bedroom. He's been telling the same jokes for the past 30 years, and has a particular affinity for 'cat' puns...
