So I have a tendency to think and learn about other stuff too: family, friends, working out, personal diet, another language, the processes required to put up an at-a-glance monitoring display system on the wall at work, gardening, planned improvements to my home and grounds, learning to make stone-age tools, bowhunting, guns, basic survival kits, investing both locally and taking into account the macro-level of the world and trends, history and archaeology, a workshop in my basement, Japanese Katana sword construction techniques, and a shitload more.
A busy life us Manosphere guys have. As an MGTOW there is plenty to do - including passively resisting those damn girls who constantly attempt to insinuate themselves into my life. Playing dumb-and-clueless is my favorite tactic these days - less confrontational. They do not have the right to learn my thinking, though if respectful and pleasant they can earn it.
At any rate, in my wanderings I recently ran across this: A Proof that the Supernatural Exists
First warning: this is philosophy. It's not like a scientifically-measured proof - because once it's measured and tabulated scientifically then it becomes natural, not supernatural.
Second surprise: while the author states that someone with a natural verbal 150+ IQ could potentially understand it without reading several basics on philosophy (4 books are given) I found it surprisingly comprehensible. Note that I will resist to the death any suggestion that I magically have a 150+ IQ - it is more likely that he has expanded upon it to the point where it reaches my level of logical/reasoning comprehension.
Third thoughtfulness: I believe that it is worth reading over, if only to expand your mind. It looks as though I will have to read the books mentioned, if only to get the best out of this proof. In a greater level it will be worth learning something new thoughts-wise. Getting mentally stale or in a rut is a bad thing.
Fourth learning: in addition to learning something new, the comments on the above post are priceless. Where else can you watch with fascination the strange thinking systems of the academically-inclined who ask questions, request clarifications - or who cannot emotionally accept the reasoning nor logically refute it, and so descend into shaming/condescending/belittling attacks upon the writer in an attempt to make him lose his temper.
Note that deliberately goading someone into losing their temper is a favorite go-to tactic of women and leftists. Their strange reasoning is that if they succeed, then they have shown that they are superior to you, you are demonstrably lesser and by extension of you being demonstrably lesser your accomplishments/ideas/statements/etc have been annulled/refuted/overthrown. All are null and void and can be ignored from this point onwards.
Grief that's long-winded. You get the guts of it though.
At any rate, this is why it's a good idea to not flip your shit at people. It draws you out of your frame and into theirs, making you weak. Like with the ABC 20/20 interview that was never aired: there wasn't enough raving frothing lunacy no matter how much they goaded the guys. No controversy, no raving nutjobs to belittle, no show to air. Just reasoned and reasoning and reasonable/logical people with a well-thought-out stance on the subject. An emotional/sensationalist flop from their point of view, no smear-campaign possible.
Fifth lesson/take: there will always be something new for humanity/science to learn and explore. I don't know about you, I am personally very glad to know/realise this.
Oh, if you decide to join the discussion in the comments: please be respectful. We do not want to drop too far into the tactics of the lefties and women if we can help it. It's personally and spiritually degrading. (Yeah I'm not perfect - sosumi.)
