More Discussion of the Next Series of Articles
This articles lists many unexplainable events. The articles speak of how the human mind is hardwired to create models that do explain. The articles then give a brief discussion of the process of creating explanatory models. Then, because everyone is admitting they have no explanations and the models they put forth do not carry the load of so much contradictions, I put forth an explanatory model that works for me.
I see now, my title confused things, so instead of my readers sharing how they are working on their explanatory models, they instead gave me "How to cope in a bizarre situation"–my fault.. Wolfe and Sark say they just hunker down in their bunkers. Wolfe then wrote that his explanatory model was they were all insane. And, of course POV did his usual thing of four repetitious comments which only exemplified the disorder. He never even contested my description of how he was part of the inexplicable.
Wolfe your model does not help me. When I put on my psychologist hat, I know too much about insanity. These people are not insane. So your model not only does not explain but also following what an explanatory model must provide, does not tell me what I do to help. Do we just put anti-psychotic drugs in all the drinking water?
However when I put on my priest hat, the explanatory model that says all these people have unknowingly fallen under the influence of the powers of darkness, that works. I believe I understand and in one of the threads I tell you how my model informs me what to do–and what I am doing.
You have all heard the expression that when you are trying to figure out a series of events, "follow the money". In the case of all those inexplicable I suggested in my article the only one who benefits from all my list of bizarre events is satan himself. And I explained that when God wants to do something, the powers of darkness always fight back violently. Also, the only ones who can produce self-righteous spiritual energy in people are other gods.
By the way POV wrote he did not think these articles were very deep. What do you think?
