Surely there are ways and means by which all or most kinds of
comments might be interpreted in some kind of "meaningful-enough"
way, in "comparative terms," that might "amount to something,"
maybe, at the end to the day . . . ? That is, how about "creative
I suspect that when we assign a certain kind of somewhat "superior
stance" to "our own views" to the extent that they narrow our
general awareness, then, I suspect, we might be heading toward
what some Theosohists might tend to see as a somewhat
"over-exoteric" view, maybe. Instead, shouldn't we cultivate, say, a
My earlier comments re Bugs Bunny were meant to be in keeping
with what I saw as "a somewhat more-balanced overview." In
other words, there would seem to be (?) many "higher profile"
Theosophists whose words might often seem "carefully considered"
. . . but what if those same words, or similar words, were uttered by
someone who is generally thought of as having a fairly lesser
reputation for "real wisdom," like Bugs Bunny, say?
Well, BB may often be perceived as not being particularly
wisdomic, "per se, exactly," maybe, but, then, surely Theosophists
(in particular!) ought to at least try to figure things out "on their
own," to some kind of "meaningful-enough" extent . . . so wouldn't
they find, say, BB's comments (and those of various people,
possibly, for that matter) at least offering them a challenge and a
worthwhile exercise, as when (eg), interpreting various possible
meanings re BB's:
<<Don't take life too seriously; you won't get out of it alive!>>
Similarly, when interpreting the comments of those who may seem
to come across (for whatever reason!) as "libelous trolls," say, (or
most whatever?) couldn't one, (at first, at least?), make use of that
offered challenge to "meaningfully-enough" see beyond whatever it
is that seems most apparent to one, just then, as, say, "troll-like," or
whatever, and, in effect, to some extent (maybe?) transcend some of
that impression . . . ? "Transcend" too some extent, maybe, in
some cases . . . ?
Or do we all tend to feel that we're already maxed out every which
way . . . ?
PS I wonder what form the last straw might have taken that got Bri
kicked off of Theos-Talk . . .
PPS Well, some "headaches" can be "real," or "real-enough," I
suppose . . . But, then, after a good night's sleep . . . as in my case
. . . Well, at least I "feel" much better, now, I think, speculatively
speaking, as compared to just yesterday. And since I don't regard
my "speculativeness" as "less real," I don't have too many
conniptions over them: tend to see them as having a gluelike,
two-way, "aliveness/creativeness" function with "reality."
PPPS I was going to say: Please, Mr Eldon, pleeeese bring
Brigitte back to Theos-Talk, but, I had second thoughts: What's the
point of sending stuff to two lists if one list does the job, anyway . .
. ? We may be saving ourtselves time and effort if we use just one
list that does the job . . . ?
PPPPS Of course, on the other hand . . . (why do people generally
have "other hands" . . . oh, ok, it's the "dualistic thing," ok), not
having read all of Brigitte's posts . . . well . . . hmm . . .
PPPPPS But . . . (Surely there must be some kind of "but" in a
dualistic world such as this! Surely? On the other hand, of course
some "buts" . . . are, or seem to be . . . just "some buts" . . . maybe
. . . ?)
