Don’t Forget the Whitakerisms

I wrote an article repeating another couple of Whitakerisms, but it is up to BoardAd to decide when it should go in.

Whitakerisms are of course Mantra Thinking. If you tap on the new thing “Whitakerisms” on the right of this page, you will see that some 23 comments came in citing these statements of boiled down reality from over 4,000 of my articles here.

You will see that many of the commenters reminded us of some of these statements, and others hunkered down with them and chewed over exactly what kind of thinking this is. That, of course, is the real goal of this whole seminar, and it was a good exercise.

So please don’t allow the Whitakerisms thread to die until I stir it up from time to time.

This leads us to another Whitakerism. I have repeatedly pointed out that a capitalized word is always the exact opposite of the real word: capitalized Truth always means The Only True Faith which grinds simple truth under its heel; the classic example of Mercy is when the Inquisition burned people slowly to death in order to get them to repent and avoid the eternal fire of Hell.

A major part of understanding history is seeing the oppositeness of the exact same word, with only the first letter in the upper case.

When you understand that, you are ready to see why I reject with horror the idea of A, repeat, ONE Whitakerism, but I am discussing Whitakerisms.

Whitakerism are short and useful to you for putting into your thoughts a framework. A Whitakerism would be a book telling you WHAT you should CONCLUDE. A Whitakerism would be a road I built, as they say, with good intentions.

Each Whitakerism tells you a lot of roads, Wordist roads, lead to nowhere. If I am good at this, it may very useful as a compass is.

A compass is indispensable if you know how to use it, but it will never tell you where to go.

So click on Whitakerisms and see if it reminds you of useful points I’ve made in low these many years.
