I had a dream once.
I was quite lucid, knew clearly that it was a dream.
I was on an old railroad car; wood and leather and linseed oil and saddle soap old.
There were two people in the seat in front of Boopsie and me.
They were silently listening as I was telling Boopsie that this was my dream. She didn't believe me, 'knew' that it wasn't.
I told her that i would prove that it was my dream.
The people in front of us rolled their eyes waiting for the demonstration.
I told Boops to hold her hand aloft for a moment. I then proceeded to pass my hand right through her wrist and back out again. There was a slight 'hissing' sound.
She was stunned! Speachless!
The people in front of us saw what happened but immediately turned back around, disbelieving what they saw, and working on what might have 'really' happened more in accord with the 'reality' with which they were comfortable.
It only took a few moments for them to have 'interpreted' the 'reality' of what they saw and completely disregard and deny the actuality and the implications therefrom.
Besides, what do I have to 'prove' to people who only exist in my dream?

Perhaps, thats why.

And everyone is the center.

Exactly! Same thing!

Thanx, I'm glad that you could find some food for thought in there.
It certainly is!

'He' who? Is this satire? Are you speaking of the paradox of the JudeoXtian bible god?
And from JudeoXtian religion's Perspective, 'morality' is the 'sin' of pride.
Otherwise, it is still vanity/pride.
