    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    Why people can't understand things.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    LOL - but the only way you could know that for sure would be if you tried it and found out. That being the case , then either:

    A. You did not do the experiment, and therefore can not make an authoritative statement,
    Or
    B. you did do the experiment and either your mental health is currently unstable, or you did the experiment and suffered no ill consequences. In the first case, your testimony becomes unreliable because of your poor mental health, or in the second case, you are lying in claiming that they are bad for your mental health. In either case, your testimony becomes unreliable.

    So the moral of this story is: there are some things we can't know for sure until we try them, and they may end up being bad for us.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Re: Things you can't never understand

    Of course my testimony is unreliable. I keep my title as "Insane."

    On that note, all people should try and understand sparkle-vamps. The world is too sane. I want more shattered minds....

    Past that, I may have seen them break a similar mind and I'm operating on the theory that if they break minds similar to mine then they're perilous to mine. It's not perfect evidence but it's a partial answer to your conundrum. It's better if I exposed multiple seemingly stable minds to the horror of sparkle-vamps to confirm my test.

    I know I won't ever be able to understand Ziltoidian waste. It's just too profound for me to understand with my inferior Earthling mind.
