Pain Per Se (In Itself) Is Irrelevant

“People do not get angry over (or experience other emotion because of) pain, though they may believe that is the case.  People only get angry over idea related to pain.  For example, people may get angry over the idea that pain is unjust or they may get angry over the idea that pain is cruel or they may get angry over the idea that pain is too severe.  So, there is not, was not, and cannot be anger over human suffering per se (in itself).  However, the mind may, in effect (not actually), merge idea and perception so that it seems that the pain itself is the cause of the anger.  Proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences, utterances, and writings of masochists, who enjoy their suffering.  Additional proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences of military personnel, who endure hardships in preparation for military service.  Also, there are the hardships of athletic training endured by athletes.  These facts destroy the sometimes seemingly irrefutable ‘arguments of suffering’ proffered by atheists.  Finally, if a person is suffering severely, they are not seeking to express some motivation (emotion) to prove God is a monster; rather, they are seeking relief from their pain.”

Objective Reality

“No person has ever experienced objective reality (though they have experienced virtual objective reality).  This absence of experience is proven by the fact that all perception exists within the human psyche (though perception does have virtual existence outside of the human psyche).”

Human Choice and Healthy Innate Cognitive Dissonance

“Human beings experience the healthy, innate cognitive dissonance arising from (1) the fact that one must have plans of choosing and options in order to be able to choose and (2) the fact that one does not have to have plans of choosing and options in order to be able to choose.  This cognitive dissonance normally cannot be removed except through one or more delusions, which can have negative consequences.  It can be removed through training in pneumiatry but, since it is harmless, people normally just learn to live with it.”

Normal Mental Experience

“Normal mental experience may involve some seemingly surrealistic (strange-combination) content.  It is not actually surrealistic.  It is just that the human intellect must use surrealistic proxies (substitutes) for ideas that are beyond complete, human understanding.”

Dichotomists, Delusion, Mental, Physical, and Neiphynormal

“This post may blow your mind.  Prepare yourself.  A dichotomist is a person who has the delusion that everything is either mental or physical.  This is easily proven.  Consider…
