Who loves ya, baby?
Yeah, I'd say so. Think Westworld. And yeah, Jung.
One time I had to do it did exactly the same thing, made up some story about stealing something.I grew up in a catholic household and remember the first time I went to confession as a kid. I was so confused and put off by the entire ritual that I didn't know what to say when I got into the confessional booth, so I just made up a couple of stories about how I stole some quarters of my dad's desk and hit my brother. the act of confession actually prompted me to lie to a priest, just so I'd have some reasonably acceptable "sins" for which to atone. how fucked up is that?!
because of what you said about love in your OP. morality is inherently oppositional and prescriptive and therefore must exclude something and involve a punishment reward system. like we were saying on another thread, consciousness requires dichotomy, natural / unnatural etc... an idea of how things 'should' be. even in the most radically accepting spirituality these exclusions exist (you arent accepting enough), 'should' is impossible to get away from and guilt followswhat exactly cant we wriggle out of it?
i like that the sciencers have ethics committees, they are so inherently amoralistic that they have to have a special department for making sure they dont turn us all into human centipedesI don't know why you'd want to. Science is rubbish. No one likes it. It's boring. It's ok not to be a science. People talk, get a load off their mind, feel a bit more cheerful. No need to draw a graph to try and explain it.
