When we get to the end of the "program" let us call it (said like Morpheus in the Matrix), and we come to that space where there's nothing more we can
do, or I should say that we MUST do or are compelled to do when we come to nothing in particular as the everywhere always state of eternal being and
becoming, we suddenly realize, perhaps to our horror if not shame, that the only thing that really mattered in the final analysis, was and is, love,
or in our case, looking around at the world as it is, an abject failure in love.

Why is this a laughing matter?
Because what was reasonable, was abandoned and rejected in favor of everything that was unreasonable, and yet its unreasonableness, is so utterly
unreasonable ie: foolish (in one way or another) only because we also know, on the other hand, what IS reasonable! It's still there, the sanity we
lost as a "civil society", lurking under the surface like a taproot or a rhizome or as the unseen Eschaton at the end of time and history just waiting
to spring it's absolute reasonableness upon us all, first to our horror and shame and to our dismay and then eventually (if we take the inquiry to
it's logical conclusion), our hilarity - of the kind capable of wiping away the tears from our eyes, only to produce tears of laughter in their place,
which eventually come to an end in the form of a smile (instead of a frown).
Having come back to our "senses" in accordance with all normal standards of "normalcy" we might give our head a shake, altogether forgetting what we
were just laughing at or smirking over we might glance at our watch, thinking about something that we're not even certain is important as the
chattering mind flits about momentarily unsure of itself, only recovering a precarious balance of power in its favor by quickly reasserting it's
absolutely UNreasonable authority in turning our attention away from what is (was) reasonable and rational, to the next utterly mundane and absurd
preoccupation, even "concern", or perhaps if we so choose, a grave concern. Maybe even something that gets us really PEEVED OFF!
"It's a bad bad world" we conclude, while the glorious world-waiting-to-be-born (practically firing straight out of the womb of suffering) is
immediately discarded out the window with a splash of bathwater in favor of Facebook and twitter, while CNN or even G_d forbid, Fox News, eminates
from the flat TV screen and, lost again, we float around many of us for YEARS, forgetting all about that one quintessential most important and vital
thing we were supposed to remember and once knew, even as something you could feel in your bones as a child. And, as sad as it is, in hindsight,
athough we might have caught fleeting glimpses of "it" from time to time, it eventually became one question and line of reasoning we just shrugged off
as of no consequence, and most certainly nothing to get emotional about!
The Cornerstone of Reason
And yet, as if from only the thinnest of membranes away (from the insanity) there's this powerful and abiding, even indominable "cornerstone of
reason"; of reason, if only because everything that's stupid just can't stand up to the weight of it's perfect and pure common sensibleness. Then, in
recognition of this powerful center of reason we may indeed giggle, and we may laugh, and right there at that very moment, as Wolf Blitzer somewhat
painfully (he's looking sadder by the day) in a monotone voice and demeanor drones on about Syria, or Iran, the clear light of reason and truth dawns
AGAIN, and we burst out laughing at a world gone awry for all the wrong reasons, and then we KNOW that the rock of ages IS coming of age!
against which the follies and absurdities of history will surely crash, in gales of laughter, sorrow and regret, and then at long last more laughter,
as we laugh ourselves AT OURSELVES straight into a domain of newound historical possibility, relative to which the rantings of the so-called "power
elite" like Obama or Romney, are rendered mute (and moot), and there, here again, at the end of history as we know it, you/WE laugh again, together,
because you/WE were the first ones there/here at the end of the age (and the beginning of a new one as an age of living water from a boundless jug) to
experience the RISE OF HUMOR, and it was our own.
It was and is the humor of perfect understanding, as a veritable ROCK against which everything that is ridiculous and absurd is brought first to
light, and then to the brunt of the ridicule, yet not without dissolving it's sting or the absurdity of its injustice(s) in the light of pure reason
and love and compassionate awareness and a more complete understanding and comprehension, thus giving backbone and rational support to any good joke
at absurdity's expense, and we've got enough material surely to last a millenium!
God help the politicians though, and bullies everywhere, because soon there won't be anywhere left to hide, least of all behind your own skin and
bones, when the heart becomes visible and we come to see face to face both ourselves and one another, precisely as we are, authentically, and at least
in our case authentically smiling for all the right reasons, and as for the rest well if they've completely lost it and there's nothing that can be
done, come along and "leave the dead to bury their dead", until they too get the joke, even if a little late and from the wrong end of life, it makes
no difference, only that it arrives eventually which for some reason is always on time and never too late.
