Marathoners on their last leg, or anyone pushing through walls of self-imposed limitation experience an euphoria, the "runner's high". We live for those ecstatic thrills induced by extreme pleasure, while being absorbed by one or by an orchestral interplay of all five senses, the spirit-mind-body troika intensified.

ENDORPHINATION is so much more
than an organic, neurotransmitter cocktail of stimulated peptide hormones.

Pithy Prescient Perspicacity 42413

"No good deed goes unpunished." ~ Oscar Wilde

Humans can't accept what they are indoctrinated to not accept.   What can one expect when applicable faculties of reasoning are systematically trained to deduce, produce and reduce rather than to interconnect and interrelate?   Gender ambiguity, political divisiveness, religious furor, the demonization of foreign soil are proactive, conflicting ingredi
ents in a pea green soup morass on high simmer.

In the best of all possible worlds, charity, compassion, the cohabitation across specific borders are encouraged. Instead, sadly in most cases, these are denigrated qualities of the weak that can be manipulated, turned and twisted against even the most good-natured in favor of cruel intent and getting ahead.   Is that humanity's true nature?

"As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly." ~ Proverbs 26:11
"Man's mind is so formed that it is far more susceptible to falsehood than to truth."
~ Erasmus, from The Praise of Folly

One of the rudest awakenings for well-behaved constituents of a tribe is to have one of its marginal members introduce cognitive dissonance that disturbs dopamine levels.   Nevertheless, I wonder---
are New Age Gurus who propagate happy mantras du jour doing a disservice to humanity by keeping "users" "doped up" on the new opiate of the people?   Is it such a good thing to stay high on happy clouds when the world down below is going to hell in a hand basket due to addictive pursuits of the pleasure principle at all costs?   Is it a grand ploy to drip anesthesia into the mainstream while sinister machinations ensue under the noses of the stupefied?
