    Unreality binds reality. without unreality this discussion could not even take place and you could not conceive of reality itself.
    It is only our ability to conceive of the unreal that creates our envelope of reality.

    It's only a matter of time.

    Spellbound fancies himself a philosopher, but for him philosophy is metaphysical religion. Christopher Langan is that religion's inspired prophet, the self-proclaimed world's-smartest-man, who Spellbound is convinced can perceive Truths that lesser intellects can't even imagine. Spellbound trusts Langan by faith, and apparently because some hallucinatory episode of his own provided what seemed to him to be a confirming experience. "CTMU" is Spellbound's holy scripture. So Spellbound preaches and preaches and preaches his weird gospel.

    When Spellbound uses the word "reality", he seems to be using the word differently than other people do.

    For Spellbound, 'reality' isn't just a collective term for the heterogeneous sum of everything that exists. For Spellbound, reality is a single Being, and that Being is God. I think that he's preaching a species of pantheism.

    He presents Langan's thought as revelation and never explains it or provides any justification for it. (It's supposed to be incomprehensible. Spellbound believes Langan is super-human, and the incomprehensibility of what he says is a sign of its deep transcendence.)

    But I'm guessing that these incessant threads entitled "Reality is..." (anything imaginable) are motivated by Spellbound's conviction that everything with any reality reveals something about God's nature. That's my guess about what all of this is about.

    That makes things clearer. Thanks, Yazata.
