      I have heard it said that some people penetrate into pretty deep mystical experiences,but instead of coming back with a greater sense of unity and compassion; their mystical experiences tend to even more fortify their arrogance and superiority.

      Peace

      Of course I had no knowledge of the content of the missive, but I stand by my perspective -- which I believe correctly establishes that flies fly and Dicks do not. The point above, however, is an interesting one. House flies can indeed be a nuisance, and so can a Dick. Psychologically one would have to wonder if the fly was aware of being a nuisance as that would be an interesting profile.

      On the other hand one must almost assume that Dick is either conscious of the fact that he is a nuisance, or pretty ignorant for a mystic. As we have to assume that his claims to mysticism are true -- as it would be difficult or impossible to prove that to the contrary -- he knows he is a nuisance, and continues to pursue the goal of maintaining the stigma.

      So here is a curious profile indeed: the mystic who chooses to be a nuisance. I guess I don't know enough about mysticism to comprehend why that might be a benefit.

      His mystical insight continually leaves me in awe, as I can almost never make sense of it.
