Thread: Non-Contradiction

It is time to set the record straight on the term Conspiracy Theory - a grossly over-used term that is actually an anti-concept.

Ayn Rand defined the term "anti-concept" as follows: "An anti-concept is an unnecessary and rationally unusable term designed to replace and obliterate some legitimate concept. The use of anti-concepts gives the listeners a sense ofย approximateย understanding. But in the realm of cognition, nothing is as bad as the approximate .ย .ย .ย ."

So donโ€™t cooperate. The Democrats NEED your cooperation - donโ€™t give it to them.

Buckle up, the best is yet to come.

The constitution is incorporated in all 50 states via the 14th amendment, but what if a state government turns tyrannical?

The constitution provides an answer;

โ€œBut when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.โ€

Trump impeachment one witness Fiona Hill has been arrested!

Debunking the fat idiot on SQV is so tiresome. I was intrigued by some of the postings here so I took a look to see what all of the fuss is about. It was hilarious - Saul responded to Flynn's post providing information on how to submit a religious objection to a vaccine mandate with a bunch of posts showing that vaccines are historically good. He, of course, completely drops the context that Flynn hasn't stated that vaccines as such are bad and that Flynn is only defending individual rights..

I used to think that they were all delusional - now I KNOW that they are just utterly corrupt (and also batshit crazy). This is Fiona Hill, the face and voice of "Batshit Crazy". populist.press/civil-war-predi

I have done my share of speculation too, but it is getting old and now what I desperately want is to know how this book will end, but I have seen enough to know that the author is a gifted one and I am confident enough to be sure that the ending will not be a disappointment! We are no watching No Country for Old Men - we are for sure reading one of the greatest stories ever written!!

I understand that everyone desperately wants to know exactly what is going on and I enjoy watching everyone's daily wild speculation. It is part of reading a good book or watching a good movie to speculate on what is going on and how it will end.

Nothing the left does is working and they keep getting more and more desperate and threatening worse and worse offenses, but nothing they do works. Their desperation is like a fine perfume to me. Nothing that I can do or say will help other than just staying positive and helping those around me to do the same.

I am just patiently watching as much as I have time to watch of what is going on around us and keeping my eyes opened for scary contradictions that would tell me that we are all genuinely screwed and otherwise I am just very happy to see that all of the craziness going on in the world is fitting the pattern that I would expect as the plot in this great book builds and builds.

While I am delighted to have been a part of creating Free Atlantis and I thoroughly enjoy checking in and watching everyone communicate freely here, I really don't personally have much to say these days.

I think it was @Andre who first made the analogy of the current situation to how a black hole is detected - not by seeing the hole itself, but by witnessing the behavior of everything around it. This is how I am following the plot of the movie - I am watching everything that goes on and just making sure that I don't see a contradiction to what I believe the plot is.

The happy thing about the movie that we are watching is that the storyline has been so consistent that it's author is truly an artist and it would be utterly out of character and utterly absurd for all of this to be leading up to a giant disappointment which resolves nothing. I could easily cop out and just make the analogy to faith, but faith means "belief without proof" and I see proof everywhere I look.

I suffered through a movie that actually made me angry a few years back - "No Country for Old Men" - please don't waste your time on it if you haven't already done so - it had a horrifically bad ending - it was bad because it was in no way satisfying and couldn't possibly have been predicted. After seeing the ending, I was angry and regretted having watched the movie.

Great fiction tends to have the following ingredients: An inciting incident to get the plot rolling, a protagonist, an antagonist, conflict, and - finally - a resolution. When you know and trust the author, you don't know the ending, but you have confidence that it will be a positive and satisfying one.

OK, now let's do some magic. Let's find an analogy to put us at peace with the current insanity going on in our political world. Sedation dentistry is tempting, but it just doesn't work for me because I am enjoying this show too much. Cruise Control doesn't work because I am definitely not the one driving. So - the best I can do is to say we are reading an amazingly good book.

Rather than going into a long explanation, I just made this analogy and Russ know just how to proceed and he did exactly what I wanted him to do. One day I got a happy surprise of a picture of neatly stacked wood where a tree used to be and he immediately received payment in full!

I hired someone who I trust and know to be very competent and I only made one stipulation - that I didn't want to know about any of the details and I didn't even want to know the day he was doing the work. This is the type of thing that I would worry a lot about, so I just wanted it to be like sedation dentistry - I only wanted to know about it when it was already over and the job was done.
