My "mind" (as far as I can tell) is in a constant state of growth. A new door is opened every time I learn something new, leading to more
I don't know. Much like the universe I find myself in, it would appear my "mind" is in a constant state of expansion.

If I allow myself to imagine "me" as an enlightened individual, I can't help but wonder how long it would take for me to become bored with such a stagnant & non-expansive state of being. Maybe some of the enlightened here on ATS can chime in about this?

Could it be I have already attained this "enlightenment", grew bored of it, and decided to place myself here for my "entertainment"? I think it is possible, and could be why my "mind" mirrors the universe in the manner it does.

But I doubt it.

If that were the case; why then would I seek to lay claim to enlightenment? That would be retrograde to the very nature of me being here, and I would do anything in my power to prevent myself from becoming "enlightened".

Anyway..


I claim to be completely unenlightened and seek only to abandon all previous notions I had regarding what enlightenment is or isn't.

If anyone has questions for this ignorant fool, feel free to ask away.

That would depend on your definition of "mental institute".

What's the difference between complete unenlightenment and incomplete unenlightenment? How would you measure that difference?

O.K. I'll bite. How do you know if an extra-terrestrial alien is friend or foe, within the crucial first 5 seconds upon stumbling on one in the wild?

I think I already know this answer. I just want your thoughts.

I imagine the opposite of what fear feels like.

You must write his speeches then.


Lots of gibbergabber that sounds great and means absolutely nothing.

Short answer (if I understand correctly) would be yes. I would still want a break from awareness every now and then.

All motion is retrograde.

Cold stillness leads smoothly to hot motion.

Context of the measurement is everything.

I imagine it would be tied to the amount of wood available for "chucking".
