        An Archaic Technique To Evolve The Self

  Notwithstanding nature vs. nurture, genetics, and acculturation processes innate to zeitgeist earth life-form cognitive development, an archaic method to expand one's horizon(s) has been mentioned by many an esoteric trickster spirit, mahatma rascal, and all around grandfatherly-grandmotherish, cool 'soul' upon the mainframe of earthly existence, to wit:

  Take any ideological position at hand, engage fully with its premises, absorb all reference materials relevant to the ideology in question, listen only to voices that reinforce the position and with an act of will, fully believe in the ideology, completely. Then, take a 180 degree turn, take the complete 'opposite' position to the ideology, absorb all reference materials relevant to the opposite ideology in question, listen only to voices that reinforce the opposite position and with an act of will, fully believe in the opposite ideology, completely.

  Diligent practice of this technique, applied to virtually any polarized concept on the planet, will reveal to the part of the core self that quietly observes this process, the plastic nature of reality, with a clearer understanding of that which is arbitrary, and that which is more grounded, least demagogic, least disingenuous, least tangible, least naive, least stupid, least asleep.

  Or, as the late, great 'Robert Anton Wilson' frequently liked to paraphrase:

    "Who is it that makes the grass green?"
