How I Achieved Actual Freedom
May 05, 2008
RICHARD: By now it must be strikingly obvious that, as what Richard seems to do (according to Gardol) and what Richard really does do (as textual referral evidences) are two entirely different things, this long-winded diatribe of Gardol’s is not at all in accord with what is actually the case.
RICHARD: As Gardol is yet to show that any defensiveness and denial – let alone ‘so much’ – really exists his wondering is but another rhetorical flourish (all style no substance).
GARDOL: He gets accused of this frequently ...
RICHARD: And there is no prize for guessing who is the latest accuser to have jumped upon that facile bandwagon.
RICHARD: Of course he does ... he would be doing his fellow human being no favour were he to just roll over and play dead (leaving them to continue suffering).
RICHARD: ‘Tis a strange world indeed where somebody responding honestly to faux accusations, in meticulous detail by way of demonstration, then gets accused of defensiveness and denial ... it is truly a ‘no-win’ set-up.
GARDOL: Here comes a respondent making a good effort to pin
RICHARD: The reason why Richard does not just give logical answers is because his expertise lies in providing experiential responses ... which, due to the newness of actualism, there is a dearth of.
Besides which, a similar (experiential) explanation to that had already been made elsewhere without the respondent in question coming back with fanciful allegations of evasiveness (aka squirmy) ... on the contrary, they judiciously said [quote] ‘none of this really matters’ [endquote]. Vis.:
RICHARD: As such a person would have to be incapable of speech (as in dumb), incapable of sign language (as in quadriplegic), incapable of binary replies (as in yes/no gesturing), incapable of writing (as in illiterate), incapable of dictation (as in incommunicado), incapable of ghost writing (as in unintelligible) – in effect, incapable of any form of communication, whatsoever – that is a ludicrous accusation.
For what it is worth: for all Gardol’s huff-and-puff about logic he has, apparently, overlooked the same thing as that logic-driven respondent did ... to wit: in order for Peter to have suggested a website, for the wider promulgation of an actual freedom from the human condition, the word must have, ipso facto, already got out (been communicated meaningfully to him, at the very least, if not to others).
As it so happens, as is mentioned in ‘Peter’s Journal’ (which Gardol says, further on, he purchased and read), he become cognisant of the discovery through another informing him of it (who in turn heard about it from yet another) who also informed others at that time (most of whom, if not all, informed others) and then informed even more as time went on ... word-of-mouth is a very, very effective means of dissemination.
And as Gardol also says, further on, that he purchased and read ‘Richard’s Journal’ as well he most certainly would have known that Richard was not at all reticent about sharing his experience with his fellow human being ... the articles numbered 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 21, 24, 25, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 all testify to this as they each contain the gist of the many and various discussions held, on that very topic, with many and various peoples.
Here is a useful word:
Incidentally, the word bull, in this context, has nothing to do with either the male bovine animal, of popular usage, or its ordure. Vis.:
As a matter of related interest (and mainly because Gardol later on introduces the word spin as if the mere assertion that something is spin is a valid argument): a few years ago Mr. Harry Frankfurt (a professor emeritus at Princeton University) wrote, in a 67-page essay on the topic of bull, that it is impossible for a liar to lie unless they think they know the truth (meaning that a person who lies is thereby responding to the authority of truth) whereas the bull-artist cares nothing for either truth or falsity, inasmuch the only thing which concerns them is getting away with what they say (meaning that they do not reject the authority of truth, as a liar does by opposing themselves to it, but pay no attention to it at all), and that this makes them potentially more treacherous than any liar because a society where bull is rife is thus in danger of rejecting the possibility of ever knowing how things truly are (as it follows that any form of argument and/or analysis is only as legitimate, via being held to be true, as it is persuasive).
GARDOL: Well, maybe someone achieved actual freedom but due to hardships of environment or circumstances, they had to spend most of their time working on food shelter and clothing, and did not have the spare time to get their book written.
RICHARD: Ha ... so that is what a logical response looks like, eh?
GARDOL: Maybe someone spent five years writing a book, and then got buried in an earthquake, book and all.
RICHARD: What Gardol is doing there is (conveniently) overlooking the fact that there are other ways of communicating than only with a book.
GARDOL: Shift happens, as they say.
RICHARD: And thus does the logical response trail away into the vagary whence it came.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
