An Interesting Thought While Taking a Shit

About: aesthetics - wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some of my most interesting thoughts come at such times.
Some come here to sit & think .... etc.
While contemplating aesthetics I had to access the porcelain throne & suddenly (Eureka!) I thought of the universal experience nature of people taking a shit.  Everyone does or did it ... Aristotle, Einstein, my father & mother & even brother Seth. Is it possible to, in good Greek style (pun intended), to access the aesthetics of a turd? What might such be like. Shape, texture, cultural diet, color, & of course the olfactory channel inputs; the latter giving rise to the age old question of why another usually dislikes the smell of others, but loves his own & yet dogs go for the smell immediately on greetings.  Then voila it came in a flash a bigger question .. is there a thought the accessing or occurring of which dissolves, unravels, or unzips the entire Universe & is that what the Fool is looking at?
 One of LEC (or Erhard's favorites) is ...I would like to invite you to an experience unrecognizable to be related to the occurring of which, if ever, is only on the other side of that which is recognizable to be related to ... or something like that.
What if everything disappears?
Did it happen & we are just now experiencing the after vibrations?
Oh! the ecstacy of the Fool!

The aesthetics of a turd are best experienced as conceptual art, but are more immediate in other channels; copraphagia notwithstanding.
There I got that out of my system for NOW.

Seth says
... and i find your new thought ... at least new to me  ... and i might add quite startling indeed  ... that what is happening here is merely an echo of what actually happened ... as ... er ... how shall i put this ... beautifully disgusting.  It is humor of a high art ... yet i am not laughing.

Incidentally we already do have a eat shit node ... just don't want you to forget that.

Seth says
.. quite a shit indeed !   No i really mean that.

Seth says
i rather don't expect any thought to ever unravel my universe ...  not even any thought-feeling-doing combination thereof.  i do realize that is a story that is told ... from Buddha to latter day gurus. i just happen not to believe in it anymore ... and ... er, have of late come to rather deplore it ... though i hope i have not yet tipped into disrespecting it.  of course that is just me ... need i even ever need to repeat that.

Seth says
i like the context ....
...I would like to invite you to an experience unrecognizable to be related to the occurring of which is only on the other side of that which is recognizable to be related to ...
... are those your words?   Anyway i get that as a great description of discovering something entirely different ... a fun and exciting thing indeed.

I left the "if ever" out of the first cut & reinserted in the item body.

Nope - they belong in a Landmark Education corp event I first encountered in LEC97 ~ 1994
as a new transformative description of articulating something to be created out of nothing.  In this case it was a Landmark without the hero worship of Werner Erhard attached. This was very far in the 4 day event.


Mark de LA says
note bene : it took much much longer to blog about it than the original shit itself.


Mark de LA says
note bene #2 : shit + shit = shit chili
once a conversation deteriorates to shit it is chili. In riming slang I'll call that a willy - both the communication & the communicator.

This one is deteriorating quite fast into Willy Wanker & his so I resemble my remark.
