You haven’t known too many engineers, have you?

As you assert “98%” are “idiots” and “rotten people” as well as “98% of people are at animal level” is this the target demographic for your book or did you write it for the other ‘2%’ that must comprise your other six levels?

Do you put that in the forward?

‘I hope you will enjoy this book in spite of the fact that I think most of you are idiots and rotten people at “animal level”.


Or closing remarks?

‘Unfortunately as this book was written for only 2% of the population not “at animal level”, so having purchased and read it chances are you are just one of the 98% I think are idiots and rotten people at “animal level”, but thanks anyway’.

Perhaps in a sales pitch?

‘“Who am I”, other than someone who has calculated that 98% of you are idiots and rotten people at “animal level”, buy my book and find out.’

The USA ambassador said last week in Romania: the politicians have a special DNA that is why they do not say ‘the whole truth’.
I calculated the majority are at animal level, the politicians are elected by people at animal level.
That is why Obama represents the Americans(rich and poor) at animal level, Merkel represents the Germans at animal level, Sarkozy represents the French at animal level….

This could get cruel.

Someone wandered into the wrong bar, in the wrong neighborhood, and spouted off some wrong stuff, and now we must beat him to death. Feels icky. Can't we just break its knees, and leave it alone?

THANK YOU!

I had hoped that if he could explain his position in his native language, the rest of us could run it through GT and get something that (maybe) makes some sense. At the very least, he now knows that there is at least one of us who speaks Romanian.

My Babblefish translator suggested that was an obscure dialect of Vogon.

Maybe I need to check for a version upgrade.

"is OK", for what?

Being “idiots” and “rotten people” as well as “at animal level”? Kind of makes your other 6 levels of your “Evolution theory on people” rather superfluous. Unless of course “animal level” is your top ‘level’ replete with “idiots” and “rotten people”.

Again…

Is 'discoverer of the theory' one of your 'levels'?

If so, it makes that ‘level’ rather restrictive.

If not, then it is hardly any kind of answer to the question.

Where does 'discoverer of the theory' as one of your levels rank in relation to your "animal level"?

I calculated: 98%
I doubt you used a metric that makes sense or has any validity, so what metric did you use to measure those values?

Hmmmm?

So you’re the one at the less crazy far end of the curve and also the one I keep hearing breathing on my phone. Thanks, for a while there I thought I was slipping down the slope past just average engineer crazy.

Usually I keep my breathing to myself, but every now and then I have the overwhelming urge to channel Darth Vader. Particularly during strategy sessions, for some reason.

Well, I've thought about it for awhile, and I've decided that I'm willing to accept the o.p. at face value. I long to turn my fate over to a master of the occult, even if it means giving up my record collection and being cool with my ol' lady going to the ashram at night, without me, sometimes.

I'm just really tired of having to think.

At least I won't have to buy an "Amega Wand", right?

(I hate to shop. I just want someone to tell me what to do.)

Is it wrong to wonder about the places in between the chakras?
Is it possible to be stuck between the 3rd and 4th chakras?

Would I be allowed to invent a "Pi" chakra?
If I bought the book?

I explained chakras. What more do you need?
Crotch chakra= low-life scum.
Head chakra= enlightened master.

The in between chakras are mostly boring, except maybe the 'heart' chakra. Heart chakra influences one's willingness to leave a big tip and such.
These 'centers' of energy flow remain outside of normal, pragmatic analysis.
Hence, no possible definition of them is likely to 'wash' with a skeptic.

The spiritual realm, by definition, is outside the realm of Newtonian factoids.

It only gets in trouble (with me, anyway) when it claims to bridge this gap; when it claims to be science.

Let's keep the spirit realm unpolluted!

How can I tell what chakra level I am at? I'm not saying I necessarily want to raise my level and lord it over others, but I'd like to be able to put that in my medical history.
