FUNDAMENTALISM

A fundamentalist is a person who talks out of their bottom.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I wonder what it would be like to think that there is only one way to define reality. For me, the possibilities of Existence are so vast and innumerable that I find it difficult to fathom the Reality of there only being one specific set of words that can describe the magic and wonder of the World.

    As I immerse myself in the delight and daydreaming of all that this world could be, I am filled with this abundance of understanding and explanation for the details of the World around ME. The more I try to explain, the more words I find there are to piece together this magical mystery.

    How could one ever think that with all the words to choose from and all the possibilities of how those words could come together that just one set of words is better than the rest?

    I think another parallel term for fundmentalist is totalitarian. You must submit yourself to the belief that only one set of words is right before they will accept you as part of their group. If you dare to consider other words for their truthfulness, you will find yourself cast out of group’s support system. It’s very cold and hard and controlling.
