      Eduard,

      Exploring fantasy [the esoteric] philosophically is
      one thing...living in one, however, is something else
      altogether. In my own estimation, Idealism [secular or
      sacred] is nothing short of intellectual castration.
      But that's just me.

      On the other hand, I am not at all opposed to those
      who try to figure out some way [anyway at all, in
      fact, as long as it does not constrain other's in
      their own pursuits] to make life more endurable. If
      they choose God or drugs or TV or music or sports or
      professional wrestling or the American Dream or
      Socialism or Objectivism or WHOGIVESACRAPism...or even
      decide to live on Fantasy Island 24 hours a day, I
      say, hey, whatever works for you, Bro.

      Ah, but if they come into a philosophy venue like this
      one, they better be pretty damn sharp in defending
      their ideas. When they are not, that's my...uh...cue?

      Biggie

        I'm rather upset at present, Eduard, but I'll try to respond.
        This reminds me of Shakespeare's play, The Tempest. It must be the
        spirit, Ariel, I think, who says:
        "We are such stuff as dreams are made on,
        And our little life is rounded with a sleep."

        Specifically that of it being a dream. Just as Alice fell into the
        rabbit hole, so too do we fall* into a dream.
