I am going to start thinking of OC as some kind of semi-voluntary Mithraic style rite in which Avatars serve the same function of the old anonymous animal masks. We are trying to circumambulate around a symbolic Bull that is designated as "the sensible point", but the ultimate goal is to cruelly and heroically slaughter the thing and use its blood as a sacrament to assist in the long term demolition of our mundane egos. The Faceless Ones (generally and broadly speaking) are in a peculiar stage of attaining to a certain type of Monadic course around the eternally spinning karmic wheel of manifest existence - just like the rest of us - but they are in a Phase that is Unzoned, or perhaps Hyperzoned.

Their manifestation as Faceless is thus appended a special Mystery that might express itself in one or two posts with a final "thank you", or oscillate between avatar and non-avatar, or be an expression of transcendence into the Pleroma where there is no Identity. The natural paranoid reaction to a sense of potential deception is actually part of the circumambulation that is provoked by the Unbegotten principle of 1+(-1), which is understandably quite unnerving when processed through the fluidic fluxes of the subtle body in the grip of the compulsive fascination of the Internet.

I can observe a solid analogy in the first paragraph as it relates to a particular overall code of conduct in which adherence is expected. Now there are those of us that are true to this, i.e. the id and superego are vastly in agreement with one another and very little filtering is required, if any, and of course those such as the faceless ones that pretend to circumambulate around a "sensible point", but whos sole objective is to merely "slaughter the bull". And not to be confused with the minion of the faceless leader as they are simply followers although they may share a similar psyche.

Of course in this day and age of technology with the Internet and all. It becomes increasingly difficult to ascertain the integrity of any given individual as those even with modest intelligence and evolutionary status have the power and ability to become highly proficient and ascend the upper echelons even if only in the art of deception being that there only aspiration is inflation of ego.

Some are even blatantly profuse in their egocentric ways; offering hollow words to the contrary, and always pretending to be under the guise of what is the accepted theme of conduct which is an insult to ones' intelligence and I often lose interest and do my own thing, or play the game. I suppose it all depends on how I feel at any given time.

Edited: to remove unnecessary capitalization.

A trend which bothers me is Random Capitalisation. I don't know why this is happening. I read somewhere that people capitalise Words which are Important to Them but I see it as a Manifestation of the need for Categorisation. Nouns can all be Names, I can make it so. Hashtag.

I am guilty of that for emphasis or implying a title et cetera, and have been trying to do it less, also overuse of exclamation marks. Sometimes I am in the mood for an exclamation, and sometimes not. With me apparently it depends on the 'state' that I am in.

Edit: you are right so in light of this I edited my previous post to eliminate unnecessary capitalization, and it is even more aesthetically pleasing now, so thank you for bringing it up.

Careful, bro. Once you feed the Dragon Lady you had better be ready to give Her more.

The last post wasn't there when I typed this, but thanks for the caveat.

:-)

And since we are on a similar subject. I will tell you about something else that annoys me, but only a little. It is the idea that academia and its' associated knowledge regarding models such as the Tree of Life and its' application in a universal cosmology where one spends a matter of weeks being spoon fed and takes a series of quizzes, and is then elevated to the level of some sort of scholar where what they know somehow takes presidence over someone who spends more than three hours a day two or three times a week for nearly three years rolling around in the trenches garnering insight using the most contemporary knowledge set as opposed to those that regress far beyond the days when people didn't know their ass from their elbow, shit from shinola, and thought the world was flat.

And even before that I spent much idle time contemplating so the above mindset is nothing short of pure arrogance and ignorance. So that's adequate I suppose, my housemate is getting pissed now because they ordered Chinese and are waiting to start a movie and I'm doing this so adios.
