Truth does not fear investigation

Truth does not fear investigation

Many investigations do not find the truth

Human minds are falible

You can observe this every day if you want proof

No matter what the subject

No matter what the thought

What matters is how you argue

What matters is how you fought

Your logic will bring you to answers

That you must reconcile and sustain

Can you meet the criterion?

What is it you wish to attain?

If you bend the findings to your liking

If you posit any bias into your view

The results will possibly please you

Yet the result may not be true

We may never truly know the answers

For the questions we fail to ask

And surely we fall into trouble

When we think we are up to the task

We must somehow steer for the middle

As both extremes will drive us mad

Logic and common senses

Are all we really ever had

DCG

If you tell me your opinion

If you tell me your opinion

The first thing I will do

Is consider your past behavior

To interpret this spoken view

There are countless ideas

Put into practice there are only a few

Do you live up to what you purport?

The logic of the evidence is only up to you

Before you rain comment

Deliberating what you think is due

Start first by looking within

Are you consistent in what you think as true?

The mind can distort our experience

On what we may purview

If you argue in moral dialogue

Are you impervious to critical review?

A superior intelect

Will always question what they construe

To live by what they say

Remains to be tested on what will ensue

DCG

Woke Supremacy

Woke superiority

Western culture in decay

If you hate your country so much

Than why indeed do you stay?

You give up on any argument

You cannot support your views

You attack, censor, and intimidate

Subvert and control the biased news

The cult conspires around the cauldron

Shouting confections of misery and hate

Swearing allegiance to a philosophy

That cannot win any logical debate

The woke supremacy you tout

Avoids the predicates you create

In the court of public opinion

You capitalize on feelings, manipulate and conflate

You might ensnare the weak-minded

Rest assured of what you berate

The irony of the absurdity you follow

Is seeded in your fate

DCG

Elst We Stay in the Cirque

Visualize the triumph

Discontinue behaviors that do not work

Identify what fails us

Elst we stay in the cirque

Repetitive bad habits

No matter how we justify

Locks up our will

Because we tell ourselves these lies

Precisely what master gives us liberation

Is the same master that enslaves our mind

To see this duality

A gift of sight to the blind

DCG

The Ameliorist

So you haven’t had it so easy

For yourself you had to fend

How do I get over my feelings of abandonment?

As a child I had to pretend

Sometimes it takes a lifetime

For you to work things out

If you never take any action

HD Thoreau’s quiet desperation

May surely come about

The ameliorist must make decisions

An ever changing environment we face

How do we improve our situation?

How do we stop running in place?

The path to reach any piece of mind

The thinkers must make amends with the past

Those who feel deeply must forgive any trauma

And mediate the iconoclast

DCG

Be You of Conscious Mind

The moment before

You drift off to sleep

A memory comes to you

One that is buried deep

Memories often populate

And integrate with your dreams

Leaving with you a communiqué

To unravel the schemes

The mind has a way

To process the unrest

Perpetuating those feelings

You may have suppressed

A subconscious attempt

To resolve any dissonance

A conscious mindfulness

The conscription of imminence

Be you of conscious mind

Be you one to search your soul

I present to you

Our cognitive tool for quality control

DCG

Sedition from Bondage

The key of captivity

Lies in the ability of the mind

Break the cycle of learned helplessness

Your freedom you will find

The fundamentals of illusion

Breed attachment and pain

When trapped in the problem

The solution we search for is in vain

Become the escape artist

Study the trap you are in

Visualize the possibilities

Become the Houdini and begin

The levels and degrees of servitude

We levy or subjugate

We mold our reality

Much of what we create

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Teacher enticing student to see

Constructs in our minds

Can also be just folly

The statement below is false

The statement above is true

A liars paradox

Another Waterloo

The duck or the rabbit?

Wittgenstein would ask

Which will give way?

Which one will last?

The Zen koan, the Greek paradox, and Wittgenstein

All demonstrate a vantage point to see

Problems of human reasoning

All contingent on how we will be

DCG

Confabulation

I wanted to think clearly

A time I was less confused

Some moments I see vividly

Whereas others I have excused

The trouble with my memory

I’m not sure if I have the right take

What were the predisposed factors?

What are the presumptions we make?

Fill in parts of what we know now

File away under a current change of view

How will I ever really know?

There is no one else to interview

Is it really worth the effort?

Will my reality be forever changed?

Will I become more self-aware?

Or will I always be estranged?

I try not to confabulate

I try to sift out erroneous thought

This is important for me

I try hard not to be lost

DCG

Your Bona Fides should Represent

We may find out as children

When parents can lead us astray

They tell us how the world works

Until we find out the error of their ways

I am told many things about the world

With little evidence, faulty reasoning and bias not far behind

Despite ignorance and poor role modeling

We must still search for a truth that we can find

We are an agency in the population

There are many challenges we meet with resistance

Our own accounting

Our own insistence

If you speak out and criticize

Your bona fides should represent

Something to backup your claims

Something to ground your intent

Too many times we are not cogent

Not in thought, not in mind

Often we may say things

But oh so maligned

DCG
