Eating shit ... a new metaphor


i am working on consciously recognizing one of my behaviors that i frequently catch myself doing.  Recently i saw a man actually eat shit ... quite matter of factly ... i flashed that it was  a perfect metaphor for that behavior.   I'll describe it later ... er, after all it is going to be embarrassing ... so you are just going to have to wait for my ... meanwhile i will share this picture of a baby eating shit.

Coprophagia is the word of your hour!
Lunchtime! at the Bozos?


Seth says
this item might actually have sufficient graphics of eating shit here.  Thanks for helping out anyway.   There actually is a thingy that i intend to associate with the practice ... it is that thingey that wants to be highlighted ... not just a lot of shit.

Well, nobody would let a baby eat shit but babies at their early birthdayparties make similar messes as the one pictured; probably chocolate cake.  I imagine Bozo has something really profound to associate with the title phrase - eventually.  Maybe something like every creature shits?
I'm ready:

well it's not "every creature shits" ... think more literally ... I eat shit ... think what kind of shit ... think how i eat it.  Actually nathan has this in his diagram ... though not as colorful ... i thought you in particular would enjoy it.   Oh shit i'll just spell it out for you ... sometimes i get totally engrossed with extreme minutia ... the patterns of dust on the floor ... things that just happened to pass through my awareness.   And the characteristic thing about it is i am totally aware of it's ultimate unimportance and at the same time aware that i am aware of its unimportance.  Now you can move that up the food chain just as far as you want ... same thing ... shit ... shit ... and more shit.  Watch somebody eat shit, you might see it being done from the outside ... the eating is the awareness of the engrossedness.  Or, if you wish, you could eat some shit yourself ... figuratively ... or literally.  If you do ... though, bro mark, could you let me know ... maybe we could arrange a video chat.

Gee I thought there was something more profound than the ontological-biological wild card nature of the word shit:  George Carlin explains it well:

Cool SHIT ~ From George Carlin

Shit is a powerful word. Just think of all the
concepts and ideas you can communicate with it. Shit
may just be the most powerful word in the English language.

Consider: You can be shit faced, be shit out of luck,
or have shit for brains. With a little effort you
can get your shit together, find a place for your shit
or decide to shit or get off the pot. You can smoke
shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget
shit, and tell others to eat shit and die.

You can shit or go blind, have a shit fit or just shit
your life away. People can be shit headed, shit for brains,
shit blinded, shit over or shit on. Some people know their
shit while others don't know the difference between shit
and shineola.

There are lucky shits, dumb shits, crazy shits, and
sweet shits. There is bull shit, dog shit, cat shit,
bird shit, whale shit, rat shit, and horse shit.
There is tough shit, hard shit, soft shit, slimy shit,
rough shit, limp shit. You can shit a blue streak,
shit bricks, shit pink twinkies, shit marbles, or shit
your guts out.

You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, or duck
when the shit hits the fan. You can take a shit, give
a shit, keep shit or serve shit on a shingle. You
can find yourself in deep shit, or be happier than a
pig in shit.

Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter
than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.
There is funny shit and sad shit, bad shit and
good shit. Some shit doesn't stink while other
things really smell like shit.

Some music sounds like shit, things can look like
shit, and there are times when you feel like shit.
You can be faster than shit or you can be slower
than shit. Sometimes you'll find shit on a stick,
sometimes you'll find shit everywhere, and then there
are times when you can't find shit at all. You can
have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit,
the wrong shit or a lot of weird shit..

You can carry shit in a bucket, put shit in a barrel,
have a pile of shit, have a mountain of shit, have a
river of shit, or find yourself up shit creek without
a paddle. You can slice shit, spread shit, dunk shit
or jump shit, and some people just can't cut the shit.

There is fun shit and dull shit, silly shit and
serious shit. Sometimes you really need this shit
and sometimes you don't want any shit at all.
You can stir shit, kick shit or stick your ass out
the window and shit on the world. Sometimes
everything you touch turns to shit and other times you
swim in a lake of shit and come out smelling like a rose.

Shit! When you stop to consider all the facts,
it's the basic building block of creation. This
means the universe did not begin with a BIG BANG
but rather with a BIG DUMP. Keep that in mind the
next time you flush the toilet. And remember, once
you know your shit, you don't need to know anything else!

Well actually it is not about the "ontological-biological wild card nature of the word shit" at all.  Rather it totally just about eating shit.

... but, hey, thanks for the Carlin piece anyway .

And incidentally, Mark, have you eaten any shit today?

Mark said: Yep, crudeness & vulgarity doesn't sell your shit nor make me want to read your shit even if there was something inside to play with.  Persuasion is built of other shit.
Faux nesting, perhaps is better ?

Maybe take your meds -I have no idea what you are up to or thinking in this piece. Your meaning gets lost in the crudeness unless that is what you are trying to attract. In this case that may be all there is in it.
Adios - enjoy the ride - bon voyage
I am going in a different direction.
... oh there is plenty here, written in clear English, if you care to read it.  People have described it from different directions ... Nathan put it in his diagram as "blah thoughts ... meh" leading to The Nothing ... perhaps it is in the Tree of Life as Malkhaut ... i don't know, that ancient symbolism needs a life time of study to make heads of tails of.  Me i have identified it with a specific behavior i notice me doing ... fun obsessions i tell myself, but i don't really want to live there.  I make it a verb, not a noun.  So now, i am sick to death of eating shit ... and some of it is your ego shit ... rwg, and all of that.  So have your fun taking a shit, sorry i'm not going to eat the whole plate.
