LOL. Animated? You do know that cinema is done by real nonanimated people? Those quotes come from them. Now it is obvious forum bullies exist and not like opposition just like in real life. Truth is valid regardless who says it be it homeless bum or president.

And if they would be given key that i|we am|are missing..would explain everything, including real yet fake(changing) problems. Only computers can calculate without giving 3rd choice and if they do it is still wrong. No wonder picking both A and B and C gives feedback "should've picked the other" all time. I dunno. I only know that framery|set up exist(ed).

Reality has not been a lie, just listen to the wind as it spreads seeds you know better not to... but knowledge can whisper truth in your ear; a complex hearing device with blueprints and all.

Guess for this reason we are not perfect by birth without going through path to perfection which is possible. Makes sense. Life operates similar to playing game in blind mode.

Perfection, at least coming from you, sounds to me like a fairytale?

Years ago I read a mini-rant on another forum (probably in the bit-bucket by now), by someone who'd just been slapped across the head by life. There was a (sympathetic) response that said something like this:

There's nothing wrong with you that isn't wrong with anybody.

...perfection is a want not a need, stay humble. Tho ironically, that's kind of impossible to do if you're religious.
