What would its primary characteristics be? M: I believe it is called the book of Revelations! You nailed why such a psychotic rant was included in the books of the Bible. One aspect of heaven that was added later was the idea that you not only are in Heaven with God, not good enough, you get to see the sinners burn in hell like an eternal Halloween scare-a-thon movie week schedule. I think you have nailed in a different way the core of Jim and Nabbie's behavior here toward you and Michael and me. It is pretty ugly. They have twisted living well is the best revenge into telling stories about them not living well will be our revenge. This is the continuum that leads to the inquisition. It is in our human nature deep. The routine they ran on Michael was the next step out there IMO, equating him with terrorists. Very ugly stuff. It's a very strange mindset, this Inquisition stuff. Nabby's *always* been like this, and I think Jim has picked it up lately since it's become apparent that he can't point to a single person on the planet who actually believes his tales of being enlightened. Jim's entire life seems to revolve around these fantasized stories he tells about himself, so when NO ONE believes them, he panics, and feels he has to lash out and tell equally made-up stories about other people. What is more disturbing is when people like Steve and Buck do exactly the same thing. Bottom line, as you address in other threads, is that they've all seemingly sunk to the level of Richard Williams, willing to lie and make up things to "get" the people they don't like. Their anger is so great and their cognitive dissonance buttons are so pushed that they really *don't see anything wrong with this*. They seem to think they're actually somehow "defending TM" and acting as good examples of TMers while lying like this.
