THIS PAGE IS HEAVILY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.  USING A METHOD AKIN TO WITTGENSTEIN'S WAY OF WORKING,  HERE IS ASSEMBLED A SERIES OF APHORISMS THAT WILL BE ADJUSTED AND RE-ARRANGED WHILE WORKING OUT THE PROBLEM OF MY "acquiescing to the adaptive function of delusion, the need to mythologize and invent".

THE WAR AGAINST NATURE BEGINS:

Isaiah 66:4 

Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? 
For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. 
He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. 
I also will 
choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. 
Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. 
A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies. 
Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.




WHAT IS DELUSION?

"A delusion is a false belief that is based on an incorrect interpretation of reality."

--Harvard Health Publishing

WHAT IS REALITY?

The access to personal information, the monetization of general knowledge, and the designation of experts (gods) vs the rest of us -- through brainwashing techniques. 

Who would not want to get healthier?

OMG! It's free!!

ONE OF THE TOP HITS ON GOOGLE FOR "DELUSION" IS A DELUSION ITSELF, ALSO MONETIZED:

Irrefutable Scientific Proof ISS Footage is Fraudulent

Sep 17, 2020 · Among my favorite hoax topics is the fraudulence of the International Space Station. Videos purporting to be from the International Space Station are absolutely not taken from orbit. This has been demonstrated without the slightest shadow of a doubt in many different ways. Delusion, Reality, Or Truth (Part 1) Fantasy is a form of delusion. Most fantasies (this includes illusions) are designed to give people feelings of happiness or utopia. This form of delusion is a product of vain imaginations that is able to create a perfect world that is solely based on the person’s personal concepts, desires, and needs.

WHEN DID A FOLLOWER OR A 'LIKE' START HAVING TANGIBLE VALUE?

 SOMEDAY THE SUN WILL GET BIGGER AND ENGULF THE EARTH:

Not a popular discussion topic, that human life is finite. We survive at the whim of nature despite attempts, like tantrums, (or this penis) to jump away from Earth. Always destined to return, like a child to its mother, we are inextricably tied to nature. We are just one small part of it despite our self-aggrandizement. Furthermore, it's doubtful that human life can sustain itself until the growing sun becomes a problem. This is the source of the ultimate delusion, because of its absolute certitude.


No, I meant this one:

Proof that man can and will live in the sky either as protector or provider.

IS ALL PERCEPTION DELUSION?

When delusion is so pervasive in the normal assumptions of the majority why not assume all perception is a level of delusion.  As a dog sees a great place to pee, a well positioned place to mark its territory, we see a fire hydrant, a well placed safety apparatus to protect man-made shelters.

NORMAL IS SIMPLY WHAT WORKS FOR THE SYSTEM IN POWER

So talking to yourself walking down the street is now OK.
