Dear "Us vs. Them" paradigm...

I prefer to spend my life and time here...

Able to walk into a science lab seeking to understand the research and leave making a real connection with the scientists.

I also enjoy being able to walk down the block to a fundamentalist church and spend some time trying to understand how they see and feel the world and also leave with a real connection.

Then go meditate with some Buddhists.

Afterwards make "fun" of the Buddhists with some Taoists.

Discuss with New Agers on whether it was really "afterwards" or just an illusion of this density.

Have a glass of wine with some Nihilists extolling how it really doesn't matter either way.

Enter a discussion with conspiracy theorists trying to figure out who "they" are.

Politely walk around the group of Republicans and Democrats entirely.

Stumble upon some anarchists to do some creative destruction.

Find some philosophers to discuss how it can be rebuilt again but more broadly applicable.

Seek out some engineers to explore new building techniques now that we get to start from scratch.

Some atheists to wow ourselves with what "we" did.

Some time alone in the woods to wow myself with what the universe did.

Finally some lovers, artists, musicians, etc. to enjoy sharing the new space to play and reach "The Divine". As many times as we can before we finally sleep. Only to wake up and do it all over again.

Please "Us vs. Them"... work with us for a change.

Hehehe. Very good. But "us vs. them" is not a conscious entity. It is the entrenched scheming of the Ego, creating enemies where none exist. So, you are better off grabbing the Ego by the throat and forcing it to watch this:

Masterpiece movie, btw. Not the UK theatrical version though, only the director's cut (which, oddly, was the US theatrical version) is worth a squirt.
