POLICY: Don't take it so damn' seriously.
The infiniteness of Man is not reduced
to a"split infinity" by wars, taxes,
or "experts" who seek to sell him what
he already has in an infinite amount.

Sub-Policy: We reserve the right to change
our minds f rom issue to issue, or
even from page to page, if we desire.

Sub-Sub-Policy: Each Man has the inherent
right to be his own and only "Authority" -- with his wife's permission.

Sub-Sub-Sub-Policy: We have no objection to
"educated guesses" about Man's destiny -- if there's no price tag to it,
and if the guesser has no objection to
our guessing that he's only guessing.

AN AUDITORIAL BY 103-644, 440-01-2932, 670-59-14
Why cannot man understand
or know God? Is it because he
is living on an identity plane
in which there is no meaning
to him of the word ONE? And how
can we be "one with all" if
we are educated from birth to
be separate and individual?
At birth, man is separated
from oneness with his mother,
and this separateness increases
with almost every breath. H e
is given a label, so he will
be distinguishable from others ;
footprints are taken to insure that Johnny Jones won't
go home with Mrs. Smith.

At home, he quickly learns
little tricks to gain recognition and pampering. Within
days, Johnny proves his adaptability to "being human" by
discovering he can get extra
attention by being different.
If he has older brothers and
sisters, he enjoys special
status because he is "the baby". If he grows up to be that
"Jones brat" or that "nice
little kid next door", he has
attained a mark of separateness which his ego will feed
and cause him to magnify.

All thru life -- in school ,
at play, at work, in romance --
the inclination is to be "different". Sometimes it's a tendency even to be worse than
others -- if he gets his share
of recognition from it. He can
be the kid who can't learn
geography, or arithmetic; or
the kid who spurns athletics
because he's "clumsy", or he
handles a ball on the playing
field as if it were greased.
If he can't be a bright star,
he'll be a dull one.

Even in marriage, the minister pronounces the pair as
"one", but one of the "one" is
the husband and the other "one"
the wife, and neither will let
the remainder of the "one"
forget the distinction. There
are traditions that must be
obeyed, roles for the man and
roles for the woman -- and comparisons with other men and women each has known and how this "Fools' names, like fools'
