of the bitter-sweetness of life...

picasso's   Rod Dreher pushes the limits of his limited knowledge without the ability to think outside the religious box — except to blame what’s outside for the destruction of the box. Today, he is mortified as to why the teaching of Christian beliefs is taking a hammering, even in Christian colleges… Here he warns us about the complacent piety of older American Christians:

In Anaxagoras' philosophical views, the mechanism for the apparent coming-to-be is mixing and separating out from the mixture, produced by the vortex motion of the ingredients. Through this mechanism, the real things, the ingredients, can retain their character throughout. When an arrangement breaks apart, the ingredients are dissociated from one another and can be re-mixed to form different arrangements, or other perceptible objects.

toning down, town gas and gaslighting...

gaslighting

It has been suggested by one lonely astute reader that I should tone down my "insults" aimed at various people — from the Prime Minister, Scott Morrison to the sensitive writers of the Murdoch media. This name calling, I have thus been told, makes me appear infantile and stupid — which I am with no regrets — but devalues my otherwise excellent arguments on whatever subject I fall into, like a pink pig falls into a deep well, by bringing me down to their low level of the gutter.

Venus was the bearer of fake ideals for the human species. The dream still continues beyond the invention. The age of porkies had began, in Greek and in Latin together alike.
