Don't feed the Trolls

Post by placid » Thu Feb 01, 2018 12:58 pm

That which does not exist except in this conception cannot do anything.

That which believes it is the doer is an illusion, simply because if it could do anything, if it was the doer of it's actions, it would be able to stop itself doing the action before it does it.

If it is able to be the doer, then it must also be able to undo itself else how would it know the difference? how would it know it's the doer?

All doing is one unitary action. There are no actions in reality, there are only reactions.

A reaction is past tense, welcome to the zombie jamboree.


This is an assumption, all claimed knowledge is an assumption.

It's an ASS U ME ...no one owns knowledge, claimed knowledge is only assumed.

There is no one to know anything, you are the known, and that which is known cannot know anything.

You are the knowing that cannot be known.

Therefore, any thing that claims itself to be the doer, aka ego, .... will not work out.

A reaction is inaction with no action.
The doer does but does not undo.
The knower knows that he can't know if the unknown isn't known.
Troll feed but their hunger is never satisfied as hunger is only a state of not having eaten anything for a couple hours.

I once witnessed a troll feeding. It was surreal because the troll wasn't really there but I could smell his thoughts as crumbs of reality littered his plate of knowledge

To answer that properly ...first we have to define what ''Troll'' is...exactly.



What is a Troll

Does Troll have a colour

Does Troll have flavour

Does Troll have a smell

Can Troll be seen - what does Troll look like

Does Troll have a weight

Does Troll have any attributes or qualities

Can Troll be felt

What is Troll

Where is Troll

Who is Troll

Can Troll be held in the hand

Questions can only arise where there is a sense of separate self.

I've never heard a tree ever ask a question.

And why are you still feeding the troll when you told yourself to stop feeding the troll?

Can't you make up your mind about what you want to do?

Or did you make up your mind.

Do you make everything up as you go along and then believe all this made up stuff to be real reality?

Cannot reverse the effects of a causeless cause, unless there is a time machine.

I'm being serious, there really is no time machine to go back and clean up this mess.

You can delete the evidence but you can never delete it's source.

And the fact that any evidence is sourced, means that cannot be deleted either.

People can change. If you're honest and serious you can prove it by being that way from this point on and, over time, you'll be taken more and more seriously. The more you don't act like a dick, the more people won't think you're a dick.

And what do you think thinking I'm a dick is going to change in this one here?

I think you are a dick too.

Do you honestly believe I care about what others think of me...I'm just like any other dick here. Posing dick sh*t stuff.

The only problem is the dick that is you doesn't care to taste my dick stuff, but this dick here loves the taste of it's own dick, because the proof of anything is always in the pudding. And I'm the queen of puddings, which tastes great from where I am.

The Nothing that comes from Self.

And the Desperate Nothing that comes from Mind.

Then drop the bird fool.

You have a small interval between the actual sensation of wanting to blow nose, and the action of actually blowing nose.
It's called the split mind.
