Resisting the urge

A while back I wrote of the ongoing problems I had with a friend who suffered Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She has since written to me and said that she read my post and that it made her laugh and all is good with us.

in that post I wrote down 3 rules that I must follow. I have now made a forth rule.

Don't write back don't write again don't write to her--- don't do it!!! It's an illusion--- it will go to Hell again--- don't write back!!!!

There.

I think I have the message.

Well I know she will read this humble little post-- and she will say-- it was funny-- it made me laugh--- but I don't care--- don't write back-- keep your silence overthinking man--- resist temptation.

Ahh. I feel the temptation subsiding-- it worked!

Spreading the word

For all those who spend many hours telling us what they believe and why we should too I would ask one simple question:-

Why is it important to you to do this?

I just accidently read an article by an atheist about how he feels about death. I left him a comment. I did this because this is why he writes his articles for the newspaper in the first place. I said simply:-

Please just refresh me as to why it is important for you to get the no-god message out to us.

I find it hard enough to decide on what yummy cake I am going to have with my coffee. Deciding what to believe is even harder. I think I will go with:-

I believe that I believe

I believe there are some dishes to wash.

This I do believe.

Everyone is right! It's so satisfying to believe in something. I feel so much better now that I have established my clear belief. I hope it helps all my avid readers too.

Inception

Ok I went to see this much touted  sci-fi movie the other night. Firstly let me say that it really isn't as good as people make out. It's a great concept but the acting and the movie itself is not really that brilliant. It's still nothing new. The dream within a dream thing and the lost reality thing has been done before. But let me state the real reality of the movie- it's a mess! And it's not that great to look at neither. I was not overwhelmed by the special effects or the actors. The character development was just ordinary. The bottom line was that it was a total mess. People are confused by total messes. People have been confused into thinking this movie means something and is brilliant. They have been blinded by confusion. The concept was derived from many movies over many years and wrapped up new. Just as everything else we are told is earth shattering in cinema nowadays.

We were promised that it would be different-- with the vast amount of gunplay in it-- it is not different at all. It's a series of action sequences strung together by interactive storyline layers.

The question posed is--- Would the real reality please stand up?

Now as the overthinking man what do I reckon about the questions the movie posed concerning reality?

Reality------ who knows? Pain is a good way to assess one's reality. But the best gauge of the real reality is  as it always has been. Doing the dishes. Nothing could be so boring except the real reality. Forget the much touted totem thing---- dishes---- dirty dishes--- that's it!
