In all your theorizing you repeadedly fail to straight-forwardly address the
central relevant fact that (both) exogenous addictive substances and
endogenous helps us/our brains achieve a greater or lesser degree of
oblivion (selective unconsciousness) in respect of not just any currently
ongoing "Selective Hibernation Imploring Type life-Situaions" but the even
more widely ignored reality of Conditioned-in [Kept Hibernated, Hence]
Unconsciously Remembered [SHITS-type] Stressors Effecting Symptoms (i.e.
symtoms of a truly wide variety) -- or in short CURSES [alt. e.g.

Symtomatic of that you do keep being AEVASIVE in this way, is that you are
sometimes also profoundly discrediting yourself by inferring an greater than
symbolic meaning to the alleged "teachings of Jesus".

If you are anyway not going to get anywhere with what you yourself are
preaching, then at least get no-where straight. For goodness sake!

Yours nevertheless understanding and well-meaning,
