Clive was saying this in another thread:

"My point is the whole thrust of our conditioning is to hide what we really are, to cover up our true impulses. Remembering now some lyrics of Bob Dylan:

“If my thought-dreams

Could be seen

They'd probably put my head

In a guillotine”

:-)

Mina: Yes, understand, but how about those who would put your (my, anyone's) head in a guillotine? They also have their own thought-dreams, not essentially different from anyone else's. Who would there be left to judge anyone, if all this was exposed to light?

Kahlil Gibran has said this: "If we were all to sit in a circle and confess our sins, we would laugh at each other for lack of originality."
