If you show them just how smart you are, they will box you in even tighter if you attempt resistance.
Interesting. I'll borrow a line from an old The The song, perhaps out context, when I write, "The path of least resistance leads to the garbage heap of dispair."
Again, I might be taking words out of context, and I really have to wonder where that child's parents are while she's got all those things stuck to her head, but I'm a little curious about the suggestion of the inverse to sharing one's ideas or perceptions, I suppose by feigning combinations of dumbness, deafness, or blindness. It shouldn't benefit any being on a course of development and discovery to remain consciously or willfully "boxed in" out of a sense paranoia, fear, or the possibility of a challenge to long-held beliefs. Choosing to remain "boxed in" or feigning sleep while striving for consciousness is a vibratory location, in at least one aspect, where one can easily be fed all manner of selfish reason and wind of doctrine.
What's been so far interesting to me about this forum, and it's a topic being explored in another timely thread, is not the variety or frequency of interference and counter-resistance I've experienced as I've begun to actively read and participate in the encouragement and exchange of ideas here, but how I now perceive that interference and resistance.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but what occurred to me while I looked at the collage of images of antiquiated mass storage devices is that each graphic was perhaps created for a completely different purpose than what they're currently being assembled for.
