This is from one of σάτυρος's claque on the KT Desperate Degenerate thread:

Kvasir wrote:A weak mind will build illusions for a reason. They offer a palatable coping mechanism for future stability of dissappointment or self-betrayal. Illusions offer mortar in the foundation of their identity; where if the integrity of that foundation is compromised or subjected to certain elemental abrasions, they will still have what is left to keep it erect and standing despite severe damage; it will still be viable to give them comfort. But What they lose, consciously or unconsciously in the event of this invariable conflict, is an irretreviable part of themselves, which is what the illusions are based on: self-illusion. To fit the world into thier construction, and when it doesn't fit, that construction's foundation is undermined, but it doesn't crumble, because the illusions simply morph into delusions, making its weakness mutated.


I bring it to your attention only in order to emphasize once again that this is what passes for "serious philosophy" at KT. And, for some, here.

Still, if someone among us is willing to make the attempt to translate it into the language we use in the real world, I would be interested in exploring that.

In other words, given a particular set of circumstances, what might be an example of a "weak mind" wanting to "build illusions for a reason"? Either in regard to a personal experience or pertaining to a context ripped from the headlines.

Not necessarily. Or, sure, maybe he might be able to demonstrate for practical purposes why all rational men and women ought to think this is the wrong thread.

Unless, of course, I'm wrong.

There's certainly something creepy there...
