I Guess I’m Just Confused

pushUh Huh.

And I guess the title
of today’s post should
come as no surprise
to any of the readers of
the Muscleheaded Blog….

— except perhaps
that it impliesturnon
that there are
times when
I’m NOT confused —

which is true on occasions,
but is still pretty rare,
overall.

When I was younger,
I did a lot of work and study
on comparative religions…

— and one of the things that
always fascinated me was
the Zen concept of a Koan.waldo

It’s rather hard to explain,
but a Koan is a paradoxical
phrase or parable that is
intended to cause a breakdown
in the absolute confidence
of ‘hard’ reasoning.

Why?

You may well ask.

Well, one meditates on a koan
in order to come to a greater
understanding of the illogical
nature of logic —

— the insubstantial essence
of that which seems substantial.

A typical Koan might read:

“Philosophy like heaping
up snow in a silver bowl.”

or :mug1

“What is the sound of
one hand clapping?”

But, just because Zen masters
have to spend 70 gazillion
years sitting on cold wood
floors in the Lotus position
to work on questions like this,
doesn’t mean that you and I
can’t have our own versions
of these kinds of things, right?

I mean, who knows more
about thinking illogically
than your old buddy
Muscleheaded, anyway?

And after all,girls
we’re not really expecting
enlightenment around here–

— a couple minutes of
entertainment and a
cheap thrill or two will
do quite nicely-,
…. thank you.

So, in that vein,world
we’ll feature some
filosophical fracturing
of our own right here
on this channel.

Like now, man.

Just ask yourself these questions,
and I’m pretty sure you’ll end upwoman
just as mind-fucked-

— at less than half the price
of an extended stay at a
fancy-ass ashram.

Hey,
You’re welcome.
