BrainGasm #2

About: urban dictionary: brain jizz

In silent thought I have identified the fear of encountering &/or discovering something unpleasant about oneself or something one believes or one's position, stand, party, politic, ontology etc. Incongruity produces the emotion; sometimes there is also congruence.
This I held as the root basis for the RWG monster.  The corollary question is how unpleasant must it be before the sword comes out?

Instead of the right-wrong game, the right game, the wrong game I call for the neutral game: the luke-warm righ game, the luke warm wrong game etc.

well i don't know ... i think that a more flexible attitude to our world views might work better.  once we no longer fear the shatter ... then the prompt to defend goes away as well. 

there was a time in my life ... true story ... when i wandered the streets of san francisco and actually noticed that i was shattering world views just about every hour.  that in and of itself was perhaps the brainbasms which allowed me to play my way back from insanity and continue to function acceptably in this crazy world.  holding to a world view is really, imho, not all that very important ... and loosing it is not really all that very frightful.
.... & loosing it is not all that important either.  Is flexible merely just another way of making luike warm about something important?

... no i think i can tell the difference.  Not careing whether a thing is this way or that way, or thinking it unimportant which way it is,  is quite different than believeing it is one way and fearing to seriously consider contrfactual alternatives.
I was interested in your use of the words flexible attitude . How do you do that without adopting a neutral point of view.

good gasm

... certainly we fear our world view being shattered ... and must needs defend it ...  perhaps in direct proportion to how much jizzum we have invested in it.  me thinks there is a wide variation of thresholds between individuals there. 
We could call it the #chasm-gasm .  We realize that we are not really talking about semen, eh?

... its your coin ... you evolve it as you see best.
I am!

well note that i changed the bolding on the phrase above ... i was talking about a "flexible attitude to our world view" specifically, not merely a "flexible attitude" in general.  our world view is our story ... we are involved ... we are vested ... we believe it ... it quickens our emotions ... it is the juice ... the juice is good ... er, it is not just something that we are "luke warm" about.

Seth says


of course that is not to say that alternatively we cannot be objective and not involved in a story ... even, i don't care about it.  But then, of course, we are not afraid when it shatters.

thing is these stories get shattered by new facts ... well let them shatter away!   why fear it?   that would be a flexible attitude toward a world view ... when one encounters facts that do not belong in the story, one changes the story instead of fighting the facts.  it is a surprisingly simple attidude ajustment.  sometimes the entire story needs to be discarded.  well so what?  stories are a dime a dozen these days.  but don't go all luke warm and not involved in your story ... for then you are not being human.

Generally I say "" as long as we acknowledge that your last sentence, wherever it begins, & the loast phrase is realized as one of those stories.

In some cases our story can be said to be our personal ontology.

As seen on C+

i think you mean G+ not C+
in any case Pericles sentence is true .   Christ or The Leviathan could have said the same about themselves ... here, listen to one say it ...
"Just because you do not  take an interest in me, does not mean that i won't take an an interest in you!" -- The Leviathan 1972
... and for that matter any jack man of us could say just quite the same thing and mean it just as very much .

Pericles ~ 495 - 429 BC may have the coin on that thought though. Most often he is identified with the Golden Age of Greece. You are right about G+
