I recall that Farrah died that day, earlier than the MJ reported death. I thought that was strange. We're they not friends? I can just see it:
Farrah: bitch! Eclipse my exit?
MJ: I'm down here, Farrah....
Well, good for him, if he fooled everyone. Somebody said that he'd have to live as a recluse, which is as good as being dead....but I disagree. Understanding of deep mysteries in itself is a solitary profession. Company is drivel, compared to understanding. People come over and I hear their words and I just shrivel. Just insane, unimportant emphasis given to things that just do not matter. Like their new TV. Their cable subscription. Why won't the vcr work with the new television monitors and other mindless crap. It's got to the point I don't like human voices.
Also, I saw a documentary (Bashir) which had MJ spending millions on some gilded crap in a luxury shop....
I thought what sort of person would want this stuff around him/her? It was tasteless. Maybe he snapped and realized that possessions are a burden? At least the crap he was selecting was pretty burdensome. I'd have to spend all month scrapping it. It would seem he had lost all money sense, and maybe decided to get rich quick, again, only with less effort, while simultaneously securing a new life, plus the vicarious thrill of walking the streets, attending his funeral, and hearing everyone react to his death.... There were plenty of reasons he'd do this, and the Farrah thing stands out on my radar.
Interesting. Never cared for him. I don't like that he was into anything heavier than what God provided, in terms of enhancements, but he had some catchy stuff. I also think that he would be a dead man if he ran out of money, that he could not function without huge, excessive amounts, and garish purchases. I doubt that he was spiritually developed, and I suspect his wisdom, if any, was completely wrapped around wealth. If he knew about the powers, he only knew because they leaned on him, interfered, made him uncomfortable. Money handles most people. It turns them into self serving vultures with no thought toward anything eternal. Except...how to take it with me.
