December 28, 2012

Growing old, and having lost hope of finding love again, I read about the Lifemates Co-op and was intrigued.  “Mr or Ms Right doesn’t exist in nature.  If you want someone that was made for you, come to us.”  I made an appointment to visit their office and talk with a salesperson…

“Once I asked her,“You were born loving me, but what if I hadn’t fallen in love with you?” She said, “Darling, there was never any chance you wouldn’t love me. I’ve got your brain scans, that they used to design me, and I spent hours the first day analyzing them to make sure I could win your heart. I adjusted all sorts of things in myself to ensure success.  When I was sure you were completely mine, I redirected my studies towards making our relationship happy.”

Ahh… the female of the species is more deadlier than the male?


“She showed me how to develop the facilities for this kind of self-reprogramming, and then tracked down the core of the anxiety. She traced it to a knot of pain, the part of my heart that could never be broken because it was already puré. I watched at first as she began healing it, making connections from pain memories to the happy memories of our love. 

When I understood well enough, I joined in.  At that point, I could have finished the job alone, but the healing was more complete for being done as an act of love. The knot inside me untied. Now I could feel happiness without suffering anxiety about losing it.”

“This healed only my virtual mind, because we couldn’t rewire my brain. It was usually sufficient anyway, because the happier influence of my healed virtual mind could usually overcome the anxiety that the brain still generated.  Nonetheless, I began to realize that my unfixable brain was holding back my growth.”

Then why not Heal thy Self..? Oh physician of philosophy, such truth, such tenacity! Let the mind overcome thy feeble brain?

Only one final question now begs.. what is Love?? Psychological intellectual or qualia driven?

IF… we Humans are truly magnificent enough to be able to program this, then.. Any man or woman would be a fool not to join the collective? This would indeed be the realisation of God - the ideal as manifest/come true at last and finally?


!! Excellent stuff
