Yes, this is good... but there is a limit to the amount of banal
material I am willing to expose myself to. And I can't stand
commercials! This is one of the reason why I'm thinking of attending
Church, at least for a few sundays. Memetic exposure. Another reason
is that I'd really like to test out this "level 3" idea of actually
containing <B>BOTH</B> viewpoint with respect to God... What I see is
running a kind of "level 2" shell of my (hopefully) level 3 brain. This
level 2 shell would beleive in God... what scares me is how /dangerous/
this could be. I'm actually contimplating deliberatly splitting my
consciousness into parts. Damn I sure hope I'm capable of this...

Is this sort of like the classic question "Why?" Just so open and vague
that any and all answers are valid?

Here's my answer:



Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will
appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all,
accurately so they will be guided by its light. -- Joseph Pulitzer
