All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense. ~ Principia Discordia[edit]

This is, of course, very true in some sense, and very false in some sense, and very meaningless in some sense, and is a valuable mantra of awareness with 7 valuable perspectives on all statements anyone could ever make. Contemplating its truths led me to devise "the four fnordian corollaries" to the 7 profound perspectives of "The Free Mantra of Sri Syadasti" while in the holy process of taking a shower about a half hour ago:

All statements are not equally true, equally false, nor equally meaningless — in devotion to the holy processes of life, liberty and love, there are always many observations and statements that are more valuable than others.

Don't take anything that anyone says too seriously, too literally, or too lightly — Always seek and cherish the beautiful forms of balance and imbalance that lead to greater awareness, appreciation, and vitality.

Be skeptical but not cynical — be reasonably faithful that there are important truths to be found, but cautious about declaring any of them sufficient or supreme.

Don't be stupidly dogmatic about anything.

The totally convinced and the totally stupid have too much in common for the resemblance to be accidental. ~ Robert Anton Wilson
