@once3800 I do find myself in this area to be dizzy trying to hold-onto the various explanations and extrapolations of the brilliant minds engaged here. I try and focus on the spiritual sensations that define life … to feel how to dance through it all … and to dance with every other character on the drama stage no matter what role they’re playing.
Perhaps a definition for @FermentedAgave’s worries about “Critical Theory” comes defined in your shared Jester link quoted below?
“Academic pretense can be found everywhere. You recognize it by all the neologisms, fancy multi-syllabic words presented with an aura of authority. Most of us tend to think something is deep and must be true if we don’t really understand it. We don’t want to appear ignorant and admit we are unable to get it whatever the “it” is.”
