I am fascinated by the pathology that held me captive inside Plato's Cave of Shadows.
It's not just Mormonism. Before I took the faith I inherited, Mormonism, seriously, I took another faith seriously, Islam. I really fell in love with Islam because of the Mystic Sufi writings of Kahlil Gibran. At 18 I dropped out of Art College and I traveled to North Africa in my quest to answer a question my English teacher asked me,
"What is Art?"
and I ended up in Africa, where I went to see, with my own eyes, what art was in a different culture from the one where I grew up.
The same phenomenon has been at play throughout history and depicted by many great books and films, starting with Wizard of Oz and Ending with the Matrix.

But they did faze you as a TBM, eventually, right?

Huh? Care to elaborate on that theory?
I'm all for teaching real history. I think it's a national shame that NONE of us knew about Black Wall Street or the Tulsa OK Massacre until a GD superhero Movie came out on Netflix and told us about it. AND we're 1/5th of the way through the 21st GD CENTURY!!!
Why are we not talking about FACTS?
Like genetic FACTS, that we've all learned, that we now know, that we're 99.9% genetically identical. That we're only really talking about 1/10th of 1%, tops, in any discussion that we have about race, gender, sexual orientation, all fits into that 1/10th of 1%.
I always wondered how that worked when geneticists tell us Eurasian DNA is 2% Neanderthal, and Asian DNA is, on average, an additional 4% Denisovan, or now, Dragon Man.
So instead of "Asian" why not "Dragon Man" or "Denisovan"?
Or instead of white, why not "Neanderthal"?
And instead of African or Black, why not "Homo Sapien Sapien"? Or Homo Sapien Idaltu, Wise Elder Man, Adam, since they are the only purebred "Wise Wise Men".
The rest of us are all hybrids of one sort or another, between lots of different species.
Some of which are still being discovered every day in DNA.
So the way the math works out is that
Africans = 100% Homo Sapiens Sapiens (Hybrid of more ancient Humans, homo)
Eurasians = 98% HSS and 2% Homo Neanderthalis
Asians = 94% HSS and 2% Neanderthal and 4% Denisovan/Dragon Man
Australians/Melanesians/Australian Aborigines = 93% HSS 2% HSN 5% HSDenisovan/Dragon Man
the fraction that has now become a pitched battle between Americans,
Between White Nationalist on one side, fighting the rising tide of multi-culturalism and diversity in America.
Trump is a racist response to America electing a black man as President.
Even though he was half black and half white.
And it pointed out what's wrong with America, a very passionate, very religious few can rule the many and bend reality in their direction.
The problem is, that very religious narratives don't end well for those who are not believers.

Well, and it's a belief system that ends the same way, in a giant ball of plasma.
The earth turns into a sun.
Have a nice summer.
