στέργει γὰρ οὐδεὶς ἄγγελον κακῶν ἐπῶν

“For no man delights in the bearer of bad news.”

If anyone is going to miscalculate on the hoof and cause a nuclear war through reckless extroverting, it is most likely to be Boris Johnson. He will say something stupid in the moment trying to impress the cameras and Vlad. will press the button. Vlad. might calculate that Europe is no longer a pal of the English.

It would not be the first time that Boris has caused harm by improvising in front of the camera…

Over the decades I have, as a bearer of A reality, been metaphorically shot. I have offered my truth and as a consequence been on the receiving end of defensive bile and anger. People have on occasion been very nasty to me, some have sought vengeance. When people are full of BS and hot air they do not like the bearer of that deflationary pin. People who lack self-awareness do not like home truths.

Recently an ex-colleague of mine said that I once needed a good slap from a therapist, I said yeah, I did. I was a bit of an arse back then.

Here is question for you,

Have you ever made a truly massive, ginormous mistake yet felt that you were thoroughly in the right, utterly justified and cleverly winning an argument only to find out subsequently, maybe decades later, that your self-diagnosed omniscience was in fact an episode of arrogant egoic encephalitis? {swollen head}

I have been exposed to some very pompous people who have an extremely high opinion of themselves and the extent and pervasion of their intellect. It is difficult to work in a “top tier” university and not have such exposure.

There is an ancillary question,

Is it possible that certain individuals are of profound karmic significance?
