@winstonsmith I bought a garbage seat because ever since Ringling Bros. closed shop I’ve been waiting for a new circus to come to town. 🙂July 24, 2017 at 2:23 pm #20260July 24, 2017 at 2:23 pm #20261KortneyParticipant
The way I see it, I don’t need an invitation, certainly not from Noah.
If that’s the case I think they’d applaud Hazel instead of hate her.July 24, 2017 at 3:55 pm #20286Winston SmithParticipant
@kortneydarling Ehh, there’s a distinction between the two. I’m not talking about showing up, and banging on a door for half an hour. What I’m saying is that you don’t need their permission. You already have it.
A ticket is permission. You don’t need permission. You just need to take what’s yours. Isn’t that what “The System” is all about? Wouldn’t that demonstrate a better understanding of “The System”, and an ability to apply it for your own personal gain? If you’re going to a seminar to learn “The System”, how can it possibly be wrong to apply it there?July 25, 2017 at 7:11 pm #20451Buz WallickModerator
This theory just made me think of something along with Noah’s emphasis on “Control.”
If we are taking each chapter to represent one of the 7 words then perhaps each chapter is a lesson that will ultimately teach us a lesson in that word.
First we lie to ourselves of why we’re here, then we’re taught to be self reflective, then metaphysicaly speaking what we desire, then what gives us power, then the emotional attachment that sex brings, then discovering what exactly it is we love in this world, and using all that knowledge we can then find control in our lives (or they control us.)July 25, 2017 at 8:31 pm #20456
I love this theory. Just going to add one bit.
The words are in a circle. So we gain control, as @thebuz said. Then, we discover control is a lie. The game is a lie. It’s all a lie. And the cycle starts again.July 25, 2017 at 9:58 pm #20478
@thebuz I like this take on it as well. @bruinbown I like what you just said, however if that were the case then we would be in the SEX chapter right now. I think you are onto something thought: The end being Control would loop back to beginning which would expose all the lies that we were first shown and told during the prologue. Like you said, it would repeat itself. Bravo.July 25, 2017 at 10:12 pm #20482Buz WallickModeratorJuly 25, 2017 at 10:15 pm #20486CodyParticipant
If we are in sex right now… I’m missing out. Fml.July 25, 2017 at 10:19 pm #20487
@thebuz @bruinbown I guess we will have to see how the chapter unfolds. It’s very possible that chapter 2 could have been power, and chapter one was desire. They did lay on thick the head vs. heart struggle and that could fit well with desire. Which desires take precedent: the ones from your head or the ones from you heart?July 25, 2017 at 10:22 pm #20488SageParticipant
If this is the sex chapter, then the thing with the “crown of dongs” better show up on the 13th!!July 25, 2017 at 10:23 pm #20490July 25, 2017 at 10:39 pm #20491July 25, 2017 at 10:40 pm #20492
@bruinbown Oh my apologies, I really like that theory and think it is very valid. You just got me very excited and anxious for what’s to come when it all ends… and the link to the beginning is revealed… ouroboros much? 😉July 26, 2017 at 4:26 am #20502ChrisParticipant
Yep. It all come down to the infinite circle that feeds itself. And again I ask, why are this words around the crossed keys? What do they “unlock”?
