There are some Iron Laws of Insanity – which we all know to be true and therefore need no proof

Even as you read them with their explanation – you will instantly realize how true they are. But, please do the re-appraisals of all people around you and the one in the midst of them – in terms of these laws.
It will be a great revelation. It will be enlightening. For the first time, you will know who you are. And, who they are.

You will never be the same – after you have read these laws. These are life changing. These are game changing. So go ahead – and change your life.

This is in continuation of the great thoughts on Insanity contained in the earlier Blog Post at the URL :

1.      Law : Every Insane man looks sane, to every other equally insane man. The key word here is ‘equally’.
Explanation : Study the law; Understand the law; the law is obviously true. If you consider any person as sane and intelligent – re-appraise him in terms of this law. He is not what you consider him to be. Look closely;Observe for sufficient time; observe Impartially; Unbiasedly; with no respect or disrespect; The truth of the law becomes very evident to you. He is not what he seemed to you before. Hurraah. Now, re-appraise yourself – in terms of the law. You will find the law to be true again.
2.      Law : Every insane person looks more insane – to a more or less insane person. It does not matter whether the latter is more or less insane.
Explanation : If you have done the re-appraisal of you and others in terms of Law 1 above, you will automatically find the truth in the second Law as well. Now, the observer is not equally insane as the observed person. He is either more, or, less insane. More or less does not matter at all; but, the observed person certainly looks more insane always, to him now. Now re-appraise yourself. It helps.
3.      Law : The term men, for the purpose of these Laws, does not apply equally to women. One must add a 50 % weightage – in respect of women. Every law applies 50% more to women.
Explanation : Women are made different. But, they ape men. That makes them 50 % more than what they are. This law requires re-appraisal of women by men and men by women – and then, self–re-appraisal. It is urged that readers do the re-appraisals of others first and then self re-appraisals, after each Law.
4.   Law : All less insane men think, they are more or less sane.
Explanation :  Whatever you think you are, after due diligence, that is what you are. This too is a Law in itself. If you have re-appraised yourself in terms of first 3 laws, You aredefinitely and obviously less insane, so you will think you are more or less sane.
5.   Law : More sane and less sane make no difference.
Explanation : It is like jumping from one 100 storied Building to another (with a street in between) or from one mountain peak to another…I think, you get the point of what I am trying to tell you. Whether you jump 1% or 99% - You still fall in between and break your bones. Whether you are more sane or less sane – you are still insane. Reappraise others again. Re-appraise yourself again.
6.   Law : Some totally insane persons think they are enlightened.
Explanation : Don’t you see some of them doing totally insane things which you will never attempt. They don’t want money. They don’t want sex. They don’t want cars. They don’t want anything. Or, they at least say so. Isn’t this total insanity? Re-appraise them again. Self-re-appraise again. If at any time, you feel you are yourself enlightened, you will no more be able to do these re-appraisals.
7.   Law : The corollary is - Whoever “thinks” he is enlightened is a totally insane person.
Explanation : If you feel you are enlightened, you don’t want anything of the world. On the other hand, if you begin to – not want anything of the world – you are on the road to enlightenment.  Re-appraise others again. Re-appraise yourself again.
8.   Law : All insane persons die.
Explanation : Aren’t we insane to die voluntarily? Like all sheep jumping off the cliff – simply because the previous one has jumped! If you think or feel that you must die because others do – this law proves itself. Re-appraise others again. Re-appraise yourself again. If you have any doubts, the next law clears them.
9.   Law : Whoever dies is an insane person. Since we all die, we are all  insane.
Explanation : We die. We say, we affirm - that  we die. We don’t say someone makes us to compulsorily die. Which means, we, voluntarily, on our own free will and volition, die. What we say – is what we do. What we all say and what all of our forefathers said – is that we die. Like, we eat, we run, we die. Isn’t this insane?  Re-appraise others. Then, Self-re-appraise.
10.        Law : The corollary is – there are no sane persons.
Explanation : Since we all die; die voluntarily; say so; and think so – we are all insane and therefore, there are no sane persons. That is why most dictionaries refer to sanity as cleanliness of surroundings – not of ourself. The sanitation department is not for you – but for your surroundings.
11.        Law : All iron laws rust and disappear.
Explanation : Nothing remains the same. When insanity crosses certain levels – new laws will appear and obliterate existing laws.
12.        If there are more Laws, readers can freely supplement. Your experience helps.
Let us see some practical examples of the application of the iron Laws of Insanity  in our lives:
Ø  Love is Blind. Love is crazy. Love is insane.
Ø  Love is purely temporary and time-bound. It comes. Whatever comes – also goes.
Ø  These are all Laws of Love formulated by others before us.
Ø  One ancient law of love in Sanskrit says – love knows no fear and no shame (Kaamaathuraanaam na bhayam na lajjaa)
Ø  A old western law / saying is - God is Love.
Ø  All these laws are true. Knowing what Love is and What God is, You can read the western law on God and other laws on love together.
Ø  Some new findings are :
Ø  Love is a time-bound virus. Like any time-bound virus - it cures itself in a time-bound manner and requires no medicine. After suffering a bout of love, you become your normal insane and happy self.
Ø  The average period of love presently - is about one year, statistically speaking. The period may come down in future, when people become more aware of its adverse effects and start to stay away from it.
Ø  Like all viral diseases, it looks like being eternally there – when you are suffering it.
Ø  You don’t need a medicine for any time-bound virus, including Love. But, you must take some medicines for its side-effects.
Ø  In countries like India, love ends with marriage – or, shortly after that. It is a peaceful end, though. The marriage continues thereafter.
Ø  In some western countries, love ends with marriage, but drags on with its severe side-effects and after-effects, until divorce. Some medicines recently discovered in the west are - become Gay, lesb etc – which replaces the virus of love with some other unknown virus.
Ø  In eastern countries – One can stay away from the virus of love – with  what is called Brahmacharyam (or celibacy).This is a less effective medicine. Love can attack any time.
Ø  When love disappears, its after-effects appear.
Ø  Even if one small virus remains in you – you will catch the disease again – some time.

Human knowledge of all viruses is still abysmally incomplete. This is true of the virus of love also.

Great & MustKnow Quotes on Insanity, Foolishness

Great & Must-know

Here are some insanely great thoughts of my own self and of many other Greats on Insanity, foolishness, wisishness etc. If you don’t know them, you are missing something and living in a world of foolishness.
Read on and re-discover yourself. You will never be the same again. 

Ø  There is no universally agreed definition of INSANITY, in any dictionary. There isn’t one for Sanity either.
Ø  Insanity is inside you. Sanity is outside you. It is cleanliness of the outside – which only is possible.
Ø  Getting mad at someone periodically – helps us retain some sanity. We know – we are mad at this person and none else. It is comforting to know this.
Ø  Getting mad is like a medicine. Get mad at corruption – if you want a world, free of corruption. Else, you will live in, and live with, a world of corruption.
Ø  As a rule, if you want some madness removed, get mad at it.
Ø  Dictionary writers, composers, analyzers and revisers are all partially mad. They want (all of) us to believe all that they tell us, as if it has come from God himself and as if it will never change.
Ø  If Dictionaries did not come FIRST, can God give us the Vedas, Bible and Qoran, each at a different place and time and in a different language – and believe us to understand them?
Ø  The holy books will lack sense, sans a sane, Static dictionary to support them. If you revise the dictionary, God’s word doesn’t change. But, its meaning does. It will be a great way of making the meanings of all holy books EXACTLY THE SAME. Its an idea worth a Nobel peace prize. But, if someone considers it blasphemous, I hereby affirm, Give the prize to any other man and take his head.
Ø  Dictionary writers, as a class, are insanely great (a Tom Peters’ Phrase). Insane. And Great. Simultaneously. Like Tom Peters himself, who coined the insanely great phrase.
Ø  We need clarity on who we are and who they are. For instance, a fool – is not a ‘foolish’ person. The two are different; not same. The ‘ish’ tag makes the latter a fake.  Foolish person is just faking. A fool is genuine. But, in reality, all of us are fakes.  There are no genuine fools anywhere. Therefore, the word is representing non-existent persons.
Ø  There are ‘wisish’ persons at all places. From Washington, to London to New Delhi. But, no dictionary has this word, wisish. The whole world is full of ‘wisish’ persons, including the class of dictionary writers; Presidents; prime ministers; kings et al.
Ø  The iron law of wisishness is : “Wisish = Foolish”. Wisish is exactly equal to Foolish. Anybody who fakes as wise is faking as fool simultaneously and unknowingly. So, wisish is foolish.
Ø  But still, we must create some difference between the two terms and persons – just for convenience sake. If you ask some one a doubt, you are foolish, the other is wisish. Dictionaries can incorporate this difference.
Ø  Many of the money bags whom Tom Peters applauds are all insanely great. Insane and great, that is. Tom knows it. He is one of the class. Every management expert is one. He may not manage himself, but knows how the rest of us can be managed. Or manipulated. Honestly.
Ø  Dictionary writers don’t give you any reasons why a word or phrase means only what they say -  and nothing else.
Ø  But, scientists  invariably give reasons and proofs in a scientific manner and scientific spirit - for all of their crazy findings. They tell you that all matter is - not matter ! Scientists are insanely great and scientists matter.
Ø  It does not matter, whether we are matter or non-matter. We continue to eat the same matter or non-matter and become the same matter or non-matter as we always did, before scientists said that all matter is not matter. We also produce the same non-matter (or matter) as our children, take great, loving care of these non-matter children and hope they will also do the same… for all ages to come.
Ø  Earth was originally flat. You can see this from God’s word in many holy Books, from most ancient times, when God was very active and used to come down and write or dictate books. You can’t dispute God’s word. When scientists came later on the scene, earth had slowly become oval-shaped. Currently, it is what scientists say it is. You can solve many of the world problems with this logic.
Ø  Since God is no more actively engaged in giving his words, commandments and his wisdom, Scientists are actively engaged in demolishing God’s words, one by one.
Ø  Each scientist’s duty is to demolish earlier scientists’ versions, step by step, block by block. Each new scientist  produces great, fool-proof reasons and proofs for - why the earlier scientists were wrong.  It happens all the time with Scientists. New evidences on the same subject keep coming. Look with a new eye. Things become different.
Ø  Things change. Change is the only thing that doesn’t change. But, everything else changes.
Ø  New scientists, new sciences, new theories and new proofs keep on coming from wisish persons.
Ø  Ancient India says, and I believe it, that a Pralayam (apocalypse of sorts) will wipe our whole world in which Sun, Moon, Earth, Galaxies etc are all floating in the sky – and a new order will emerge.
Ø  God is currently hibernating on the new order, to come after Pralayam.
Ø  The Good news is – we will all be there in the new world, in some form or other.
Ø  We will be there as allies and friends – of sorts.
Ø  An ally, let us clearly understand, need not be a friend. A friend also, need not be an ally. A friend, for example, doesn’t help you in wiping out terrorism in your own way. But an ally helps. He can and he does, because, he knows all of it. He knows all of it because he produces it.
Ø  Can an exorcist exorcise himself? We don’t really know. What is the moral of the movie by that name?
Ø  The Devil’s effect and God’s effect on the earthlings are both waning.
Ø  Many women are going back to the pre-knowledge days of Eve. Simple. Pristine. Pure. The No clothes era is again coming back. When woman does it, man apes her, automatically. Sheepishly. Much against God’s advice.
Ø  Woman’s advice always works better than God’s advice on man. To spoil him. It started with Eve.
Ø  The Indian yogi sees himself in every one -  and every one in himself. Does he see all the nudists in himself? If he cannot, the internet can help greatly. All of them are there.
Ø  Some one theorized that one in every four is insane. And, look at your friends. If three of them look sane, then, the one in four is you, says that some one.
Ø  Birds of the same feather flock together. Your friends can’t be different from you. If you are insane, so are they.
Ø  What is the difference between a foolish person and an insane person? Foolish person is insane some of the time. But, insane person is never foolish !
Ø  Do you agree with an insane person? If you agree, you too are one. If you don’t, you become one.
Ø  Love is Blind. Love is crazy. Love is insane. But, the cure for love is love itself. After suffering a bout of love, you become your earlier foolish and happy self.
Ø  “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results” –said Albert Einstein. Saying is Doing. Einstein was telling the same theory of relativity daily, all his life.Was that insanity of sorts?
Ø  Others like Neil Bohr got tired of Einstein’s repetitions of his theory and started demolishing it. Einstein got different results by telling the same thing again and again - though from others.
Ø  “The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.” –says, George Carlin. He probably talked the same things daily and got them accepted by himself daily. He needed a lot of convincing.
Ø  In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” –says Friedrich Nietzsche. He is right. Individuals are foolish. Groups are Insane. Bring four persons together. They remain foolish as Individuals but become insane as Group.
Ø  “If you think anyone is sane you just don't know enough about them.” –says Christopher Moore. We don’t know enough of Christopher Moore.
Ø  “Dispute not with her: she is lunatic.” Says William Shakespeare. His times were good times. Now, she wants to be president, secretary or prime minister.
Ø  “We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.” Says Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He started with himself and then found this phenomenon as true in the whole planet. For a change, we want to find a similar planet away from ours, now.
Ø  “I should never be left alone with my mind for too long.” Says Libba Bray. True. But, who has the courage?
Ø  “Do you think it's possible for an entire nation to be insane?” asks Terry Pratchett. No…But, it’s impossible to be otherwise. That is the problem.
Ø  “Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.” Says William C.Dement. It is great to be insane every night, dreaming and doing all that we can’t do in our waking lives. When we wake up, we become foolish and incompetent again.
Ø  “Did you know that childhood is the only time in our lives when insanity is not only permitted to us, but expected?”-says Louis de Bernieres. I think - no, childhood is the only time when we are reasonably sane. Thereafter, we become permanently foolish and periodically insane.
Ø   “Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles…” Says Mark Twain. He has agreed about himself. How about you?
Ø  If you have any great insane and foolish sayings, please do enlighten me and make me wiser.
